We’ve all had those nights when we just can’t seem to get to sleep. But if this is more the rule than the exception for you, it’s time to get to the bottom of your restless nights. Sleep is one of the most vital pieces of the health and wellness puzzle, and can make or break your ability to function, let alone succeed.
Quieting the ruckus caused by the countless thoughts running through your mind can seem overwhelming, if not impossible. One of the best things you can do to clear your mind before bed is to establish a relaxing nighttime routine that helps your mind release the stresses of the day and slowly settle into the quietude of rest. The best part is, this means taking time for yourself. Pick up the book you’ve been meaning to read, dedicate time for meditation, jot down your thoughts in a journal, step away from your phone, email and television and let your mind relax. Don’t forget other senses can help you sleep. Consider adding the soothing effects of aromatherapy to your pillow or mattress protectors.
Over 60 million Americans suffer from the effects of nighttime allergies and asthma. If you find yourself stuffy and wheezing when you lay down, you’re most likely suffering from allergens caused by the dust mites, pet dander, pollen or bacteria within your sleep environment. Make sure that your mattress and pillows are protected and that all of your bedding is laundered on a weekly basis.
#3: Light Sleeper
Light sleeper? Me too. It’s the worst. Especially when you share your sleep environment with an avid snorer. But did you know that having the right pillow can make a huge difference? The right head, neck and shoulder support provides proper alignment that can help reduce snoring. PureCare’s patented ONE pillow collection offers both support and comfort while cradling you in any sleep position.
Then there is the tick of the clock – the biological clock that is. As you age your body and sleep needs change. One of the most common issues is sleep heat. If you seek cooler sleep, check out PureCare’s entire collection of FRíO Rapid Chill Cooling Fiber based sheets and protectors. FRíO fibers are tested and proven to cool 5x faster than regular polyester. If you have muscle aches and soreness, PureCare’s Celliant protectors and premium sheets help to improve blood oxygenation and relieve minor muscle aches and pains. Reduce pain. Heal faster. Sleep better.®
Seems silly, right? How could a cluttered room (or home) keep you up at night? The truth is that clutter can create a breeding ground for dust, dust-mites, pollen and other irritants. Give your sleep environment a full helping of fall cleaning by not only vacuuming and dusting, but by up-grading your bed linens, protectors and pillows. You might just sleep better on these long winter nights.
