How To Fall Into Quality Sleep and Stay There

Enter into dreamland, every night.

For some, sleep is easy, but for a lot of us that’s not the hard part. Staying asleep is the real challenge and fortunately there are a few things you can do to make sure you keep counting sheep until the morning.

Your mattress, room temperature, and other habits are big factors for quality sleep. Some aspects you may not have considered can really impact things.

Ace your Rest Test.

Better sleep starts with the right mattress and using PureSleep Mattress Store’s Rest Assured Test is the best way to find out your mattress match. Discover your comfort level (plush, medium, firm), support level and preferred mattress type (innerspring, foam, hybrid) to determine the perfect mattress for optimal sleep.

Not entirely sure what your results mean? Our Sleep Specialists are ready to guide you to the mattress of your dreams, literally.

Think beyond your mattress.

Your mattress is only a part of your total sleep environment that helps you get good sleep that lasts. Adjustable power bases go that extra mile so you can position yourself for the greatest comfort. Improve your circulation, alleviate pressure points, reduce snoring and wake up feeling refreshed for the day.

In addition to adjustable power bases, pillows play a big role too. 30% of your sleeping comfort comes from your pillow. It’s truly the Bed for your Headâ„¢ that completes your sleep. Having your neck and shoulder’s natural curve properly in-line with your spine reduces the chances you’ll wake up mid-sleep wishing your neck wasn’t sore.

Keep it cool while you sleep.

It’s important to keep your room around the same temperature when your core temperature drops during sleep. In general, most people are comfortable around the 65-70-degree range. But these values are not set in stone. Set the thermostat to what feels best when you’re catching some shuteye.

With the combination of your sheets and comforter, having a warmer room exponentially increases the heat you feel while sleeping. In general, it’s best to have a room that’s a few degrees lower than your normal sleeping temperature.

Set yourself up for slumber.

Accelerate your body’s temperature change with a hot bath or shower so you can fall asleep faster. This also releases stress within your muscles and the steam clears your sinuses. This is the perfect way to set yourself up for long-lasting sleep that leaves you feeling recharged the next morning.

Ditch the blue light at bedtime.

It’s tempting to wind down with TV or your phone in bed, but it’s not the best for getting quality sleep. The blue light emitting from TVs, phone screens and computer screens sends similar signals to your brain that sunlight does, telling your body it’s time to wake up. This makes it harder to fall asleep and stay asleep.

Trade those bright screens for reading or journaling about your day instead. You can also use programs that change the hue of your screen to a warmer tone that keeps your body in nighttime mode.

Take control of your sleep.

The power to getting quality and restful sleep all night is in your hands. Cultivating your sleeping environment goes a long way. The right mattress, pillow, adjustable base, Rest Assured Test and proper pre-sleep tactics will make sure you stay in dreamland the whole night.
