How to Conquer Sleep Issues & Feel More Energized
It may help to know that you’re not alone in your quest for better sleep. Research studies demonstrate that approximately 25% of people suffer from some form of sleep disorder.
In order to live better, you need to sleep better. If your sleeping habits include some of the following, you’ll be well on your way to establishing an effective sleep.
1. Get Into Routine
Set a bedtime and stick to it. Remember you need at least 7 hours of sleep a night.
2. Turn Off Your Screens
The glow from screens is known to delay the release of melatonin, making it harder for you to get to sleep.
3. Avoid Caffeine and Alcohol
Caffeine, a stimulant, keeps your body alert and energized; therefore, increases the number of times you wake during the night.
4. Sleep with the Right Mattress and Pillow
Sleeping with the wrong mattress and/or pillow could be keeping you awake at night or reducing your quality of sleep. Make sure you are sleeping on the right quality and firmness. Our Ergo check Testing and the information that you supply will take the guess work out of what mattress firmness is right for you on your side of the bed. Don’t buy your next mattress without a proper Sleep Analysis conducted by a qualified Sleep Expert and a Medical Practitioner if you are under current care.

5. Take a Warm Bath
A drop in body temperature helps to trigger the need for sleep so a warm bath (or a soak in the hot-tub) may help you fall asleep faster. You can enhance this effect by using aromatherapy products (bath oils, scented candles and so on) with calming properties.
6. Practice Relaxation Techniques
Today’s fast-paced world tends to make us tense and irritable, which can really interfere with your ability to sleep well. Spending some time on relaxing activities (breathing exercises, yoga, massage, meditation, or gentle stretches) before bed can lower anxiety levels and calm your body and mind.
7. Exercise Daily
Vigorous exercise is best, but even light exercise is better than no activity. Exercise at any time of day, but not at the expense of your sleep.
You can sleep better! You just need the right bedtime routine in order to achieve it.
