How to sleep when you travel. It is one of thw great delemmas when we must conquer. The bbed is different, the surroundings are different and no matter whether for fun or business, there is stress There are a few tricks to help you.
The firat is to pack something that will male you comfortable such as your pillow or blanket. We never .out grow the failiar. It 5ells your brainthat this is the place you are supposed to sleep.
Keep to the same sleep routine at home. Minr is read for 15 to 20 minutes. Do some streches. Brush my teeth. Then go to bed. This agai alerts your brain it os time to sleep.
Lastlyremeber that alcohol and new foods will affect your sleep. Limit the amount of alcohol becaise it causes disrupted sleep later in the night. And new food can cause rwflux that can make it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep.
No matter how that first night was remember the next night will be better.
I always appreciate that the white sales start at the beginning of the year. It is an easy time for you to remember that you bedding needs to be changed. A pillow receives a great deal of wear and tear and accumulates a lot of dirt, skin and other allergens.
You would be amazed at how much better you will sleep when you replace your pillow. The big question is which pillow to buy. That is a tough question to answer. It depends on many things. Do you need one with a great deal of support or that is designed for those who have a bad neck or back? Then a memory foam pillow may be a good choice. They now have ones that have a cooling pad added so you will not overheat.
If you are a person who needs a pillow that you can crumple up and design to your specific design than a buckwheat pillow, my pillow or a shredded foam pillow might be what you need. These pillows conform to a person’s specific needs so they can feel comfortable.
If you do not have specific needs then you should buy a pillow designed for the position you sleep in most of the time. If you are a belly sleeper or back sleeper your pillow may be flatter do you do not put too much pressure on your neck. If you are a side sleeper you may want a higher pillow so you do not wake up with a kink in your neck.
You may also want to look at replacing your mattress if it is over 10 years old. Most mattresses are designed to last approximately ten years if you maintain it properly. If you have had it for more than ten years you might want to consider a new mattress. If you have an inner spring mattress this is the perfect time to rotate your bed. You should flip it if it is a reversible mattress or at least rotate it 180 degrees so you change where the pressure points are on the bed. This will help it to last longer.
Sheets, blanket and other accessories should be changed as you need them. But if you have an electric blanket or mattress pad this is a great time to inspect them to make sure there are no frayed wires.
The New Year gives us a marker of when to look at our beds and our comfort. Comfortable sleep should be a priority since it contributes to your health and to other resolutions such as weight loss. A little time taken to look at your bedding can give you great results.
