It’s a new year, and that means hope for another incredible season in your life. It’s inspiring to set forth goals and to see how hard work (or even simple changes in habits) can make them a reality.
We know you’ve got some big plans for you and your family, and that’s why we believe that the number one resolution on everyone’s list should be: getting consistent quality sleep.
We see a lot of the same New Year’s resolutions: from getting a promotion to fitness and weight loss to more outdoor adventures, to getting glowing and youthful skin. Having a good night’s rest more than just a couple times a week will make achieving these goals that much easier.
You’ve probably noticed that more and more studies are supporting the benefits of getting good zzz’s. It’s more than just the number of hours you need per night but truly getting the restorative sleep your body needs to replenish your energy reserves and getting rid of the toxins out of your system.
Sleep is when our bodies heal. The more rested you are, the more energy and mental faculties you’ll have to tackle life’s daily challenges.
So what’s the first step?
Optimizing your bed is the number one improvement you can make. Make your bed a sanctuary that brings comfort whenever you lay upon or even glance at it. Having a good quality mattress, pillow, and bedding will prime your body and mind for deep, restorative sleep. There is no one-size-fits-all. Customization is an important part of creating the dreamiest bed.
Some questions to ask yourself:
Are you a side sleeper or a back sleeper?
Do you prefer a firmer pillow or one that molds to your head and neck?
Do you like your bed warmer or cooler? (Tip: cooler temp is optimum, get breathable linen to prevent sweating)
Customization is available for your mattress and pillows. But unlike a mattress, upgrading your pillows and linen are easier on the wallet. Whether you have an older or newer mattress, be sure to get a mattress pad to protect your investment.
