Poor quality sleep is something we probably all have experience of. Whether it’s tossing and turning all night or not being able to stay asleep once we get there, a bad night’s sleep is a miserable experience.
But can better quality bedding improve your sleep?
Before we talk about what can help to improve your sleep, we need to address what causes poor sleep.
Stress, anxiety, some physical illnesses, mental illnesses and even the use of technology are amongst the many causes of sleeplessness.
Now, we love brilliant bedding. But let’s be honest - better bedding won’t help to deal with a physical illness causing insomnia. And better bedding won’t solve all of your stress problems.
But creating a bedroom environment more conducive to sleep can help to eradicate some causes of sleeplessness.
The blue screens on our phones and tablets can decrease the production of melatonin, the hormone that makes us sleepy. So doing away with the phone before bedtime is a sensible idea. But there’s more to it than that.
There are lots of other things in our bedrooms that can influence how well we sleep. These include:
The comfort element of sleep is unquestionably important. 100% cotton bedding is more suited to helping you to regulate body temperature than man made fibre produced bedding.
Plus, higher quality cotton feels softer and more comfortable.
Alongside a comfortable bed, better bedding could very well help you to sleep better.
