With work days getting longer and the nights getting shorter, it’s common for both adults and children alike to suffer from a poor night’s sleep. According to The Better Sleep Council, lack of sleep can lead to undesirable side effects such as weight gain, wrinkles and depression. Luckily there are easy proven ways to get a better night’s sleep.
• Accommodate Your Sleep Style
Side sleepers, stomach sleepers and back sleepers all require different methods of support during sleep. Watch our video to learn about how different types of pillows suit individual needs and select the best pillow for you.
• Adapt With The Temperature
A cool room around 65 degrees is ideal for the best night’s sleep, but everyone’s personal level of comfort is different. Adapt to the seasons by using a heated mattress pad in the winter and a temperature regulating mattress enhancer in the summer. For the best of both worlds, try the Therapedic Pure Sense Temperature Regulating Mattress Pad to regulate the sleeping surface year-round.
• Practice Good Sleep Hygiene
Washing sheets, comforters and pillow cases often can help get rid of the germs and allergens that make it uncomfortable to sleep. Those who suffer from allergies should try a pillow certified by the Asthma & Allergy Foundation, and a hypoallergenic mattress pad or encasement to protect from dust, dust mites, allergens and bed bugs.
• Protect Your Mattress
An old or damaged mattress can be directly related to a poor night’s sleep. Protect your mattress from spills with a waterproof mattress pad and extend the life of your mattress with a quality mattress topper. If your mattress is over 7 years old and shows signs of aging such as lumps or sags, it may be time to buy a new mattress.
• Listen To Your Body
Each part of the body is unique and needs unique support. A versatile pillow such as the Therapedic Any Position Memory Foam Pillow can offer support at home, in the office or on the go to help problem areas such as the lower back, neck and knees. The Therapedic 5-Zone Memory Topper provides unique support to the shoulder, neck, lower back, hips and other key areas for increased comfort and pain management.
