What are your new year’s resolutions?
While sleep may not be the top priority in your life, it’s time that it becomes more important to you. Getting better sleep should be the goal of many Americans, considering that one-third of us don’t get enough sleep each night. If getting better sleep isn’t already one of your resolutions, make it one. We’ve already gone over the benefits of sleep, and how important sleep is to your overall health. This time, we’re here with Sleep Number to help you finally get the sleep of your dreams.
How To Get Better Sleep
Set an alarm to wake up – and to go to bed.
When my new iPhone asked me to set a bedtime, I couldn’t get over how simple yet brilliant it was. Now, every night at 10pm, my bedtime alarm goes off, letting me know that it’s time to get to bed. Maintaining a consistent sleep schedule is one of the best things you can do – having erratic sleep patterns can… well, cause you to continue having erratic sleep patterns.
Keep colder temps
Having a temperature-controlled room can improve not only the time it takes to fall asleep, but also your quality of sleep! Like goldilocks, it can’t be too hot or too cold, but juuuuuust right. Between 65-68 degrees Fahrenheit seems to be the magic number. The Sleep Number 360 Smart Bed comes with a cooling feature to ensure you’re at optimal temps..
Exercise during the day
Exercise literally helps with everything. Well, most things. Namely, sleep. The more vigorously you exercise, the more likely you are to sleep better, but even light exercise has sleep benefits. Try to finish your exercise session 3 hours before bedtime so that your body has enough time to chill out before you try to unwind.
Get a comfortable mattress
It’s a pretty obvious point here: the more comfortable you are, the better you’ll sleep. Your mattress should be built for you, which may be entirely different from your partner’s preference. For example, some people might like a firm mattress, while others get their best sleep on a soft bed. The i7 Smart Bed from Sleep Number provides adjustable firmness, comfort and support on both sides, so nobody has to compromise on sleep quality. It’s the smartest bed in the world – knows, senses and adjusts to you to keep you sleeping comfortably all night long.
