Tips for Getting Better Sleep
Even minor changes can make a huge difference in how much, and how well, you sleep. Here are our top 10 changes you can make to sleep better.
Have a Ritual and a Schedule
A relaxing routine can help you get in the right mental place to sleep soundly and serves to let your body know that the day is done and it's time to sleep. The longer you keep to your ritual the better it works! You might read a book in dim light, have a nice cup of herbal tea, or anything else that helps soothe your mind
Turn the Temperature Down
Keeping the temperature just a bit above 60 degrees can really help your body relax into sleep. As an added bonus during the winter this can help bring those heating bills down! If you want to learn more about how cooler temperatures help you sleep, check out this article.
Sleep on a Good Mattress and Pillow
It used to be that getting a good night's sleep could be pretty expensive. These days you can get a really great mattress for much less than you'd pay at a big-box furniture store. If your mattress is less-than-awesome consider a Leesa Mattress. If sleeping in comfort isn't enough for you, for every 10 mattresses Leesa sells, they donate a mattress to someone who needs it. If you need a great pillow, try the Hullo Pillow. It's one of the only pillows that is always on the cool side.
