Easy Sleep Fixes For a Great Evening’s Sleep
What’s the best part about being a kid? Unlimited energy, juice boxes, and nap time all seem pretty great, but perhaps the best part was having an unbroken night’s sleep. It seems like the older you get, the more it can be a problem to get the shut eye you so deserve. While it always helps to have the best mattress you can (and for that, we always turn to Nectar), there are other little fixes you can use to find your best sleep routine. While you may not ever be able to be a kid again, these tips are sure to leave you feeling youthful, well-rested, and able to face the day like even the brightest eyed grade schooler. Just try to go easy on the candy, we won’t be able to help you with the impending stomach ache. So here you go, the best tips from the best mattress company.
What to do if You Can’t Fall Asleep or Stay Asleep
This is a really common problem. Over seventy five percent of all adults estimate that they have had trouble sleeping at some point in their lives. There are tons of things that can trigger insomnia, from what you ate to a noise that you heard. So what do you do when you you’re up tossing and turning — even when it’s on the best mattress? Change up your routine. Don’t smoke or drink too soon before bed. Try laying off for a while and see if it improves your snooze. Also, don’t eat large meals too soon before bed. It may actually wake you up from a sound sleep. As your body changes the enzymes it produces, leaving food partially digested in your stomach (yuck!)
What to Do if You’re Sleepy During the Day
Again, this is super common, so common that US sleep scientists have labeled our current era as a “sleep epidemic.” It’s not enough to have the best mattress if you aren’t going to use it. So what can you do if you’re feeling grouchy and tired at work, or slow at the gym? The best solution is obviously to get as much sleep during the evening as you can, but sometimes it just isn’t realistic to think you are going to get seven to nine hours of uninterrupted sleep time. If this is the case, power naps can be a great alternative. Find a cozy spot somewhere for fifteen minutes and let the dreams come. Not only is it a great way for a quick refresher, many historical figures used that time to generate new ideas. They thought that the mind was spurred by dreamscapes. Now that’s two great reasons for a mid-day sesh on your best mattress.
What to do if You’re Snoring
There are tons of apps and devices used to combat snoring and sleep apnea, but sometimes we don’t want to spend a ton of money if a simple solution is available (kind of like how Nectar is a simple, low cost solution to finding the best mattress for your dollar). If you suffer from snoring, try sleeping on your stomach, this can compress the airways and make snoring less likely. Nasal strips are also a low cost solution, and can be readily found at most corner stores. They promote good breathing by widening your nasal passages and increasing airflow. As you can see, there are a ton of things to try if sleep isn’t finding you as easily as it used to. Remember this though: it’s always best to not stress too much. Stress is the enemy of a good sleep. Luckily for us, Nectar has taken the stress out of finding a good mattress. With the ability to shop online, and an easy to understand shipping and return policy, Nectar keeps the fun of buying a mattress while getting rid of all the hassle. Sounds like a great tip to me.
