How to FINALLY Get a Good Night’s Sleep

Posted on October 16, 2015 by Core Products There have been 0 comments

You’ve tried all the tricks you’ve read about. You cut back on caffeine late in the day, you avoid TV right before bed and you’ve spent hundreds of dollars on mattresses, pillows and gadgets- and may have even resorted to a sleep medication. Before you spend another sleepless night, here at Core Products we have provided some simple tips to help you get your zzzzz’s.

In today’s busy world, insomnia is all too common. We all know the recommended hours to sleep at night are 7-8, but whether you have too much to do or can’t turn off your mind, many don’t come close to this guideline. Lack of shut-eye not only leaves you sleepy the next day, but chronic, long-term insufficient sleep increases odds of diabetes, depression, cardiovascular disease, even weight gain.

Here at Core Products we realize the importance of a good night’s sleep. Here are some recommendations to get you back in bed!

-  Don’t drink alcohol late at night

While drinking alcohol may relax you, it interferes with getting into a deep sleep. If you are going to have a drink, have it well before bedtime.

-  Write down your thoughts- get your thoughts in check

With the busy lives we lead, we often have trouble turning off our brain at night. Keeping a   journal and writing down your concerns or anxieties can help you eliminate those thoughts and turn off your mind.

-  Take a bath

A relaxing, warm bath at night helps to calm the body and mind and makes you sleepy.

-  Set the mood

Make sure your bedroom is a calm environment. Avoid bright lights and bright colors and keep your bedroom lights dimmed or use lamps.

-  No electronics

Keeping a television in your room not only will likely keep you up later than you should be, but the lights and distraction can interrupt the sleep cycle. Tablets and phones should also be put away somewhere outside the bedroom to avoid unnecessary distractions.

-  Make your goal relaxation, not sleep

If you use these tips and still can’t seem to get the sleep you need, instead of watching the clock tick by, just tell yourself your goal is to simply relax not sleep. This may trick your brain into releasing the pressure of how many hours of sleep you get, and if nothing else, relaxing is a good way for the body to rejuvenate.

-  Choose the right pillow

Core Products offers cervical pillows and specialty pillows that can help alleviate pain and add comfort, leading to a better night’s sleep.

Following these simple tips will help get you the right amount of sleep so you can face the day relaxed and rested!
