Trouble Sleeping? Here are 3 Ways to Get Your Sleeping Routine Back on Track
You can help your body restore your sleep routine faster
A person spends an average of 229,000 hours of their lifetime sleeping. A good sleep powers all the activities in one’s waking moments. It impacts an individual’s physical, mental and even emotional well-being, enabling one to be as productive not just in tasks but also in decision-making. Lack of sleep is known to weaken the immune system and cause a slew of other health problems.
Getting a restful sleep, however, can be difficult with so many distractions and stressors.
Don't fret as sleep experts share things you can do below to help you get your sleep routine back on track.
3 ways to help you get a good night's sleep
Invest in a good mattress.
You've heard it many times before—investing in a good mattress has lasting rewards. As we’re all different, there is no one-size-fits-all perfect mattress but support and comfort are the most important factors when choosing a mattress.
Mattress quality significantly impacts the quality of one’s bed. It affects the quality of sleep and subsequently a person’s performance the day after.
Be wary of red flags about your mattress and bed. Is your mattress causing muscle pain and uncomfortable tossing and turning? Is there uneven spinal support due to sagging?
If a couple or all of these are getting in the way of you enjoying sweet dreams, it might be time to consider switching mattresses.
Create an atmosphere for sleeping.
Try lighting up one or two aromatherapy sticks or diffusing some essential oils.
Much like the sudden hunger one feels upon smelling a whiff of one’s favorite food, that sleepy feeling can also be triggered by comfort scents. Aromatherapy boosts health and well-being. Inhaling natural essences can help create an atmosphere of relaxation and stimulate the mind and body for a good sleep.
Essential oils are readily available today, with several fragrances to choose from. Top choices include lavender, peppermint and cedarwood.
Aim for a Zero-G position.
It’s more fun to think about the zero-gravity (or Zero-G) as an ideal sleeping position that would make you feel like “floating” because of how comfortable it is.
This body posture is developed by NASA before launching their astronauts into space with the aim of reducing stress on the individual’s body in consideration of their weight.
How to do the Zero-G position? Lie flat on your back then raise both your head and feet, leaving your feet slightly higher. This position relieves pressure on your neck and back area and helps achieve a sensation of weightlessness making it easy to fall and stay asleep. Now, what’s the easiest way to achieve the Zero-G? This is where adjustable beds come in the picture.
Compared to the traditional flat mattresses, these beds allow inclination adjustments for both head and feet, making the Zero-G sleeping position possible.
But why choose this sleeping position? Aside from minimizing tension on the body, this angle can make breathing easier for people with allergies, respiratory conditions, and even those with common colds. It lessens the pressure on the heart that, in turn, promotes better circulation.
On top of these, using the adjustable features of the advanced mattresses prevents the occurrence of snoring, and relieves GERD and acid reflux.
