Breaking the Cycle - How to Develop a More Rest-Ready Lifestyle

Posted by Stewart Armstrong on

Preparing yourself for relaxation doesn’t sound like something that would be too hard to do or too complex a task, but many people struggle to wind down by themselves in the evenings. This is a common ailment among workaholics, and even the everyday person will find themselves tossing and turning from time to time. Developing a more rest-ready lifestyle is easily achievable within a shorter amount of time that may seem believable, and it’s all in the layout of your home/rest space. We have put together an article detailing the ways you can develop a more rest-ready lifestyle, in the hopes that it gets you off your feet and into a deep, relaxing snooze more often.


Napping

For most full-time workers, napping stops being a part of one’s life as soon as the 9-5 grind begins, but there’s no reason to discount its effectiveness at reawakening us in the afternoons and giving us a little boost on the days that we need it. The key to napping is understanding your sleep cycles, and how they are timed, in order to plan when you’ll wake up at the lightest point of sleep. The deeper the sleep you’re in when you wake up, the more tired you’ll feel, and this is why you’ll occasionally nap and wake up feeling well rested and ready to go, and sometimes you’ll wake up feeling like you’ve been hit by a truck, and your body is trying to move in honey.


Bedding

Your bedding is crucial to how well you sleep at night, and whether you realise it or not, your mattress will often be the deciding factor for how well you sleep at night. Our Cirrus mattresses are specially designed to support your spine in just the right way to give you a healthy sleeping posture, and better overall posture during the day. Not only this, but they’re created right here in Australia, meaning you’re buying Australian products from an Australian company, so quality is sky high.


Bedroom Lighting

The light in your bedroom can seriously affect how well or poorly you sleep through the night, and even the lights you see before you get ready for sleep can have a serious impact. Blue light, for instance, has the effect of “waking up” your brain, and is, therefore, best kept away from the bed and the bedroom. Warmer coloured lights, however, will make you sleepier, and this is ideal lighting for any place where you’ll be laying down for a snooze.


Noise Levels

Finally, the noise levels in your room and your home can have a big impact on the quality of your sleep, as well as the number of your nights of decent, restful dozing. If you’re living in a noisy household, or on a noisy street, you might find it difficult to reliably get your eight hours, so try installing heavy blinds to deaden some of that street sound, or covering your walls and door with wallpaper to add that little extra layer between yourself and your housemates.


With these tips, you’re bound to be off to sleep, snoozing on your Nicklor mattress before you know what’s hit you, and the nights you spend blissfully dreaming will be more and more common as time goes on, so don’t waste a moment. Contact Us today to get to your sleepy dreamland.
