Night shift jobs, rotating shift jobs, being a manager of your own business, all jobs that can steal your sleep because of the hours and how time consuming they are. Sleep is a vital part of life, and vital to being productive, alert, and meaningful in your life. If you’re struggling to feel positive about your job, struggling to ever feel like you’re not tired, or simply not performing the way you should, perhaps it’s time to check out some ways to manage your sleep schedule.
Make sure that when you do sleep, you’re getting good quality sleep, not restless sleep that leaves you as tired as before. You do this by having a mattress that doesn’t impede your sleep by being saggy or uncomfortable in any way. A mattress should provide a good night’s sleep by supporting your body adequately. Support from a mattress is crucial to your muscles relaxing, which is linked to you sleeping properly and waking rested. If your mattress is more than 10 years old, the chances are that it’s not doing that for you, especially if you have chronic back pain when you wake up and during the day. A mattress should also not cause you to breathe fitfully because it’s full dust mites, dead skins cells and hair that you’ve shed. Mattresses can double in weight over 10 years from this very cause. If your mattress is older than 10 years and you wake up with headaches, struggle to get over a common cold, and simply don’t feel rested, it might be that it’s simply unhygienic.
Memory foam is a great foam to look out for in a new bed, because it’s both extremely supportive and hypoallergenic, meaning that it will support your body and give a superior night’s rest while keeping allergy inducing dust mites, mosquitoes and bed bugs away. The memory foam is supportive because it moulds around your body shape, letting every part of your body be supported by the mattresses, not just those that protrude and usually take all the slack. Memory foam beds that are sold at The Mattress Warehouse include Silentnight, Genessi, and Cloud Nine.
Try to develop a pre-bed time routine that you do every night before bed. This will help you to fall asleep for quickly and settle into a sort of routine, even if you are sleeping at weird and wonderful times. Stretching and simply relaxing your physical body gets your brain ready to sleep.
Make sure your bedding doesn’t make you uncomfortable. Warm bedding is all very well at night, but if you sleep late into the morning after a night shift, you may be familiar with the unpleasant sensation of the sheets making you feel sweaty and gummy. Buy cotton sheets, flat and fitted, as well as a cotton duvet cover and good quality duvet to combat this. Cotton is breathable, gets softer with use, and stores heat well without making you sweaty. The Mattress Warehouse sells 100% cotton sheets, duvets, and towels at low prices, as well as microfiber duvets for the best feel.
