Sleep is one of the must ingredients that either can make it all sunny and live or truly torture our bodies apart. In the latter, we mean the insufficiency of sleep due to the preventable disturbances and interruptors.
What is considered a good night’s sleep?
Our bodies rebuild and chuck away the by-products from the chemical reactions taking place during the night phase during the REM hours.
What Is REM?
A kind of sleep that occurs at intervals during the night and is characterized by rapid eye movements, more dreaming and bodily movement, and faster pulse and breathing.
If we do not get a REM phase in our lives on the regular basis, it could lead to a chronic bodily inflammation, which translates in many chronic diseases like hypertension, heart diseases, insulin resistance, obesity, and cancer. Not exactly what we want and are looking forward in life, is it?
Getting the right amount of sleep is a remedy granted to us by Nature by birth to use for self-healing and rest. Here, we’d love to touch upon the factors that can interfere with our sleep and make it miserable. To be aware of these factors is the first step to making a change.
How to get good night’s sleep?
Here are simple and proven steps to a good night’s sleep with HOW TO sleep better tips every single night.
Sounds, Buzzes and All
Electronics are a huge part of our lives. We do need them for so many things! However when it comes to a good night’s sleep, do a favor to your body and mind and put those electronics aside at least one-to-two hours before you go to bed. Here’s why.
Buzzing, ringing during the night causes interference in our sleep. Even if it is a minute interference, it can ruin our REM cycle and stop such important processes like rejuvenation to take place. And when we do it often and on the regular basis, the body will give us a good picture of ourselves: what we look and how we feel. Sluggishness, skin tone and color, chronic fatigue – things like these can easily take their permanent presence.
The light emitted from the electronics screens can suppress melatonin, the hormone that helps our bodies to shut down for rest. The stats tell us that two or so hours in front of the electronic screen can prevent us from getting into REM sleep.
Sleeping in cooler temperatures can actually do our bodies good. The best sleep comes at about 60-68 F. During the sleep phase, our bodies go through the process called thermaregulation, when they are trying to cool the core body temperature for optimal rest. Allowing our organism to do it easier, dialing down room temperature would help.
TV Helps Me Sleep Better
Wrong! All the emotions and feelings that we my go through while watching our TV shows and movies can easily get a spike of adrenalin – from stress, fear, excitement – which can cause a counterproductive effort when we are trying to go to sleep. Adrenalin and melatonin do not go together. The role of one is to force a “run and jump” action. The role of another is to calm down and go to sleep. It is a good choice when we keep our TV sets in our living and media rooms.
Pitch-Dark Is The Way To Sleep
Even if we are supposedly are not bothered by light when we go to sleep, any light – be it from electronics, night stands or outside – can cause sleep interruption. Our skin has light receptors. The absorption of any light can trigger hormones that will wake us up and keep us awake. Having quality blinds that prevent the outside light to mess with our sleep cycle would improve the quality of sleep you are getting.
Good Night’s Sleep Means
the Best Bed Sheets to Keep You Cool!
Beds, Bedding And Breathing
When we spend 1/3 of our lives in bed – sleeping – it is a good idea to invest in quality bed every 7 to 8 years. Little do we know that our bed mattresses can double in their size during that time period. What do you want? We sweat, we lose our skin cells in millions while we are enjoying our night’s sleep. To get a good mattress after 7-8 years is simply a must.
For every night’s good sleep, do invest into your bedding, too. Taking into account that cooler temperatures do our bodies good during sleep hours, look for bed sheets that will protect you from cold, yet are breathable and pleasant to be in.
From my personal use of these sheets, these are some of the thinnest 1500-thread covers I’ve ever had in my life. Soft and breathable, PeachSkinSheets would be your go-to bed sheets for every season!
