7 Tips To Get A Better Night’s Sleep

Sleep impacts every part of our lives.  From our performance at work & the interactions with loved ones, to our health and mental well-being. In today’s hustle and bustle –  quality sleep is often hard to come by. Because of stress, work, and TV marathons (haha), I’ve fallen short on sleep quite a few nights.  To get a better night’s sleep, one big improvement we recently made was upgrading our mattress (from queen size to king!) Eve Mattress has been a lifesaver in helping us get adequate sleep.

A few small tweaks to your everyday habits can make big improvements to your everyday living. I hope this inspires you to make your sleep a priority.

Top 7 Tips To Get A Better Night’s Sleep

 

1.  Choosing the Right Mattress

Picking out a mattress is a big task.  After having ours for quite some time (and having two dogs in bed with us every night!) – we could definitely tell we were due for an upgrade to a king sized mattress.  We were very interested in trying out Eve.  A memory foam mattress? Yes please!

The Eve Mattress is a foam mattress and combines three different types of foam to form one amazingly comfortable mattress. The bottom layer is an ultra-resilient base foam.  The middle layer is made from highest quality, luxurious memory foam and the top layer is  New-generation Memory Foam, reducing pressure on joints. This makes for a cloud-like sleeping experience. Can you believe Eve also has a 100-night free trial where if you don’t absolutely fall in love with your mattress, you can send it back free of charge with a full refund! They also offer free shipping! Amazing right?

Our Eve arrived to our doorstep in a compact box.  The king mattress was tightly wound up inside. (crazy, right?) We got it upstairs, pulled it out of the packaging, and watched it magically unroll in front of our eyes.  We were instantly sold when it expanded out over our king bed frame in seconds. I definitely appreciate the amazing yellow trim and graphic design within the box itself.  Yellow just brightens you up and makes you a little bit happier!

2.  Adjust Your Bedroom

Your bedroom has a big impact on your quantity and quality of sleep. For your best night’s sleep try keeping your bedroom dark, cool, and quiet. We recently painted our bedroom a dark gray color.  It feels a lot cozier and not as bright as it was before. Having extra light is a natural cue for your body to wake up.  Try and eliminate as many lights on alarm clocks, bright night lights, and other electronics is essential to giving your body the rest it deserves.  We used to have a night light in the bathroom, but it was constantly waking us up at night.  We removed it and have seen a big difference.  

Keep your room at a comfortable level to get a better night’s sleep.  The best temperature to fall asleep to is 65 degrees Fahrenheit. (According to studies) 

Try out this thermostat.  You can schedule it to lower your houses’ temperature at a certain time every night or while you are away.

3.  Replacing Your Mattress

Your mattress set should be comfortable and provide proper support.  If it’s sagging, worn out or more than 10 years old, you should think about upgrading your set.  Our Experience with the Eve Mattress has been great! We have been sleeping on it for 2 weeks – and have been getting great sleep!

4. Stick to a Strict Bedtime

Making sure you are going to bed at the same time each night, waking at the same time every morning, and avoiding long naps during the day can help stabilize your internal clock, and in turn lead to a better night’s sleep.

5.  Maintaining a Healthy Lifestyle 

Eating a healthy diet and getting a good night’s sleep go hand in hand. Exercising regularly can help with relaxing and reducing mental stress, which in turn can make it easier to fall asleep at night.

6.  Routine, Routine, Routine

Just as sticking to a bedtime can help improve sleep, so can sticking to a nightly routine. Find something that helps you relax each night before bed. Reading, writing in a journal or taking a bath are all great ways to unwind after a long day.

7.  Nighttime Teas

Chamomile tea is an excellent choice to stimulate sleep. It helps you calm down, by relaxing the nerves and calming the stomach, promoting a great, peaceful night’s sleep. For maximum benefits, drink this tea about 30 minutes before bed.

    I’ve totally got a bedtime routune. I take ashower, I do yoga then I curl up in bed. The mattress you have does make a world of difference.

    I LOVE reading about sleep. All of these tips are so true. How you sleep can totally determine the rest of your day and thus your week! My bedtime routine is washing my face & brushing my teeth in the 10pm hour, reading a book, and lights out around 11pm. I love doing this because I don’t need an alarm clock to wake up if I stick to it! Thanks for this lovely post.

    I have a very specific routine that I follow at bed time. Even when traveling. It makes for a much better nights rest no matter where I am. Also I have found that exercise does help. I suffered from insomnia for years and these tips have really helped.

    These are all great tips! I always struggle to fall asleep at night, and I know that it’s easier when my overall diet and lifestyle is healthy AND when I stick to a routine. Getting your body used to a certain bed time is really important to maintain a good night’s sleep 🙂 Thank you!

    Hubby and I both need better sleep. I think our biggest struggle right now is our little guy not sleeping through the night. He’s three years old and has apraxia and sensory issues. Our mattress is also a problem. I’m hoping we can use the above tips along with a new mattress to help all three of us sleep better.

      I definitely recommend Eve Matress! Check them out! Sorry to hear your little guy isn’t sleeping well throughout the night! Hope things get better for you and your family 🙂

    These are really great tips! Not for me though (since I can literally sleep anywhere at anytime HAHA) but for my boyfriend because he’s more of the picky one between us. True enough the mattress choice really helps. Often times there are too many beds that are either too soft or too hard.

  • Reply everydayeyecandy February 21, 2016 at 8:20 am

    Great tips! I really believe that a great mattress really effects your quality of sleep! I am trying to develop a better nighttime routine, but it doesn’t help that I never go at the same time! The struggle is real!

  • Reply MrsTee February 22, 2016 at 3:59 pm

    I’ve seen the eve mattress a few times now and have seriously been considering a change in our mattress. We are nearing that 8 year mark so perhaps this can be our next option because Lord knows sleep is so valuable in my daily function…LOL

  • Reply Katie @ Recipe for Perfection February 23, 2016 at 6:45 am

    I can never sleep if it’s hot, so I turn down the thermostat- but then I also pile on blankets. Somehow the contrast between the warmth and the cold is restful. Glad you like your new mattress!
