Summary: Good quality sleep is important to maintaining physical and mental health. Use these three things to assist you in getting better sleep each night.
With everyone being so busy these days, it is becoming increasingly difficult to get a good night’s sleep every night. We know sleep is important to maintain a healthy mind and body, but we stay up late and wake up early so we can fit everything into the day. So, if we cannot sleep more, we should do our best to sleep better for the few hours we do get to sleep.
Use A Neck Pillow
Many pillows are not supportive enough for our necks to be in a comfortable position all night. Investing in a quality pillow that fits your neck is one of the best things you can do to sleep better. You will not move around as much trying to find a comfortable position, and it will be better for your neck in the long run.
Listen to Calming Sounds
Having sounds like ocean waves or a campfire crackling softly can help you fall asleep faster. This will allow you to be in a deeper sleep sooner and go through the sleep cycle more efficiently than if you laid awake in bed for an hour.
Get A Weighted Blanket
Weighted blankets have calming qualities that will help you get more effective sleep. They can be pricey, but you will use it every night. Try getting a weight that is about 7-10% of your body weight for best results and comfort.
A good night’s sleep is crucial for your body. That’s the time your body uses to repair and detoxify itself. So, if you know you will not be sleeping at least 7-8 hours per night, use these tricks to get better quality sleep for the hours you do get.
