Bedding – Are You Relaxed At Night?
How comfortable you are with your bedding, can be the difference between an excellent night’s sleep or an extra night of tossing and turning as we fight to try and get to sleep.
We spend something like one third of our lives in our beds. We need around 7-9 hours of sleep each night. If we do suffer trouble sleeping at night, then more than likely, we are going to have difficulties when we face our daylight hours.
Considering how we occupy such a large amount of time in our beds, shouldn’t we look to make our bed and bedroom as comfy as possible for ourselves? We probably should be more prepared to invest in our bedrooms than any other room in our home. Because if we don’t obtain the sleep we require, it can easily start affecting our health.
Are you comfortable with your bedspreads, pillows, mattresses, blankets and sheets? Do they help you to feel relaxed and comfortable or are they old and want replacing?
Perhaps the first item you ought to look at is your mattress. Is your mattress old? Do you toss and turn a lot during the night? Do you wake up in the morning feeling stiff? If so, then it’s maybe time you started looking at a new mattress. Your mattress should be supporting you, not fighting with you.
What about your pillows? Do you feel relaxed shortly after your head hits the pillow? Or do you find your pillows lumpy and uncomfortable? Pillows are quite inexpensive and changing an old lumpy pillow and treating yourself to a new comfortable pillow can and will improve your night’s sleep.
The sheets you lay upon will also determine how comfortable you feel at night. When buying any new bed linen, you will see that there are different thread counts obtainable. Basically, the higher the thread count, the more comfortable the sheets will feel to you.
