Sleeping is one of those mysterious things that humans do that scientists can’t fully figure out. While most studies say that we should be able to get away with little to no sleep if we take certain supplements, the same studies say that it just can’t happen for some reason. The human body isn’t meant to go for long without sleep and even those of us who can last for longer on shorter sleep schedules will still fall victim to a nap attack sooner or later. So what can you do to make sure that your sleep is as restorative as you can make it?
One of the important things for you to do before going to bed is to make sure that your sleeping accommodations are a comfortable temperature. Most scientists suggest making it a little cooler in your bedroom than you may like while you are awake because our bodies don’t need to work so hard during sleep. This means that the cooler temperatures can help put you into a state of relaxation and trick your body into conserving energy. This means you are less likely to sweat and wake up all sticky and gross like you would in the summer. This is much easier to do at this time of the year, but just make sure you don’t make it too cold or you’ll start shivering!
Another thing that you can do is make sure that your mattress and pillows are all effective. I can remember staying at my grandmother’s and sleeping on a mattress that had no more stuffing so I could always feel the springs no matter where I laid down. This is the kind of thing you want to avoid. If your pillow is too flat or your mattress is too lumpy, it may be time to start looking into a new one. Mattresses may be expensive, but they are something you need to have a good start to each day.
