There are few things you actually need in life to survive and be totally functional teach day. Water, nutrition, and sleep are probably the three absolute must haves. Sleep can pick apart your life one miserable insomnia-driven hour at a time, and the following day can be horrifying to get through for anyone with sleep challenges. While some nights, you may just not be able to rest due to stress, or from an illness, if it keeps up and becomes a pattern, it’s time to look into your sleep routine for some answers.
Sleeping on an old, or poorly made mattress can often be the culprit. The golden rule seems to be changing your mattress after ever eight years, but the one you currently have is causing havoc, then look into getting a new one. If you find yourself tossing or turning all night, it’s usually due to the mattress not having a lot of resilience, or being loaded with dust deposits inside that you just can’t see from the outside.
The Good Men Project advised that experts recommend getting into a mattress store quick, and trying out each bed variation thoroughly before handing your hard earned money over. Additionally, if the mere thought of buying a new bed is financially daunting, check out the many new options online for mattress vendors, as “paying the mattress corporate cow” seems to be coming to end more and more each day. You can now find ones that can be shipped right you, and ones that are half the price of what you’d be paying in a local retailer.
Sleep specialists also recommend changing for sheets, or washing them at least once a week. Getting a quality pillow, versus the ones we all pick up at the department stores, and making your nightly routine more subdued in order to set your mind into sleep mode more naturally. Putting a small water feature in the room, or only using dull lamps by the bed versus overhead, bright lighting, are all tricks of combating insomnia once and for all!
