We have all spent a day feeling groggy and slow when we didn’t get a good night’s sleep. Sadly, that groggy feeling is not the only side effect that sleeplessness has on our body. Lack of sleep can lead to increased stress levels, anxiety, and decreased alertness. Not getting enough sleep over an extended period of time can also lead to increased risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and diabetes. Read more.
There is no quick solution to ensure you always get that good night’s sleep. However, here are some tips to help put you on the path towards a more restful night’s slumber:
Develop a relaxing bedtime ritual
Whether it’s a glass of decaf tea, a chapter of a book or a relaxing bath, developing a relaxing bedtime ritual will trigger your mind to prepare for rest.
Avoid drinking alcohol before bed
Yes, Buckhead Village has some great nightlife and it’s tempting to stay out late for that last nightcap. And while it might feel like alcohol helps you fall asleep, the reality is that alcohol actually reduces rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, which is the most restorative form of sleep. Disruptions in REM sleep may cause daytime drowsiness, poor concentration, and a bad night’s sleep.
Avoid high energy exercise two hours before bedtime
While exercise is great to get your blood flowing, it will also amp you up mentally, preventing you from relaxing and ultimately getting a good night’s rest.
Make sure your bedroom is not too hot or too cold
Temperatures outside of your body’s natural temperature range will likely wake you up in the middle of the night and make it hard to get back to sleep.
Find the perfect mattress
On average, Americans spend eight hours sleeping and one hour commuting every day. Now, while we don’t hesitate before spending thousands of dollars on a car for our one hour commute, we often choose second-rate options for our mattress. Spending a third of your life in bed merits the time and money spent finding a supportive mattress that meets your sleep needs. And if you’re looking for ultimate comfort and support, memory foam mattresses are the way to go. Relax The Back Atlanta in Buckhead has a full range of Tempur-Pedic beds, often considered one of the most comfortable beds in America. Tempur-Pedic offers both mattresses and pillows with different densities depending on your needs. The Tempur-Pedic Cloud-Supreme relieves pressure points with its ultra-soft feel, while still maintaining great back support. Meanwhile, the Tempur-Pedic Cloud-Luxe has an adjustable base which ranges in motion from sitting upright to lying flat. This is excellent for reading in bed or if you have specific health needs that demand an adjustable mattress.
