It is a long established fact that sleep has a direct influence on all aspects of our health.
Sleep gives our body, mind, and spirit a time to recharge, repair, and rebuild. It is a basic need. And for these reasons, you must invest in quality beddings. If you live a hectic lifestyle and can afford only 5 hours of sleep per day, you’d want to get the most of those 5 hours.
Strategies to A Better Sleep
Several strategies can improve sleep quality. However, implementing all of them at the same time can be a bit overwhelming. You might end up more awake after preparing your bedroom. A more effective approach is to start with small changes, such as your beddings.
First, let’s clarify that bedding includes several items: bed cover, sheets, pillows, and blankets. In some cases, the comforter and duvet are also included.
Bedroom Rental Expert from Direct Appliance Rentals, Karina Wolfin says, ”High-performance mattress provides support to proper posture, preventing muscle and joint pain. Bed pillows must be replaced every 18 months because their performance decreases over time. If you sleep for 7 to 8 hours, it means you use the pillow for around 2,400 hours in a year!”
Memory foam pillows and natural pillows last longer than synthetic pillows. Now, do you know that your sleeping position should also be considered when choosing a pillow?
For back sleepers: Get a flatter pillow to maintain a proper alignment from the head and spinal column alignment.
For side sleepers: Opt for a pillow with the thickness that is the same as the distance between your outside shoulder and ear.
For stomach sleepers: If you sleep on your stomach may not need a pillow at all. They may use a soft pillow to support the pelvis though.
If you have a firm mattress, you’ll sleep better with a soft pillow and vice versa.
For Covers, Sheets, and Blankets
Pick microfibre beddings if you need more warmth. They are durable, easy to care, and available in various colours, styles, and sizes. Despite their breathable structure, they can retain a decent amount of heat.
Microfibre is recommended for colder months of the year due to its heat-absorbing ability.
Bed sheets made of cotton are ideal for those in hotter regions. Many are adamant about buying expensive cotton beddings, believing that they are more comfortable and therefore, can induce better sleep. The truth is, most of us can’t exactly tell the difference between a low-grade 1000 thread count and a pricey 200 thread count. The thread count is only one of the many factors that contribute to softness of bedding. The fibre itself is still made of cotton.
Cotton is more prone to wrinkles and creases than microfibre, so it needs extra care. But it is more suitable for warmer months due to its breathability.
