How To Get Better Sleep
Getting a good night's rest is one of the most important things you can do to stay well and alert throughout the day. Good sleep helps mood, being more productive and even eating healthier, among other benefits. Yet it's all too common for people to feel exhausted and agitated when they lose out on a full night's rest - and that can be harmful to your well-being.
If you're considering alternative ways to feel more comfortable in your daily life, there are many options to get to sleep faster and stay asleep for longer periods of time.
Back to Basics
Since the dawn of man, way back when your early ancestors were sleeping in caves and trees, people have had a fairly regular sleeping habit. Not only did that habit rely on the amount of available sunlight, it was affected by the temperature. Throughout history, humans have gone to sleep in warmer temperatures, cooled off during the night, and awoke naturally with the return of sunlight and rising temperatures. It was only with the invention of modern air conditioning and heating units that this pattern became disrupted.
Finding a way to regulate your body's temperature throughout the night is one key way to get a better night's sleep. For some people, this can be achieved by merely sleeping with one or both feet outside the blankets. For others, it's not so simple.
Ironically, technology such as AC units can sometimes be the source of sleep problems however, new technology can also be the solution! Products that regulate your body temperature throughout the night can help keep you comfortable, no matter what the thermostat is set at. For example, the nuyu™ Sleep System uses warming and cooling to subtly change your core temperature throughout the night; warming in the evening to help you fall asleep, cooling in the night to help you stay asleep, and warming again to help you wake up feeling refreshed.
This method of control works especially well when combined with other techniques, such as limiting screen time an hour or two before bed and halting caffeine consumption after noon. Simple measures like these will allow you to sleep more easily and wake feeling more rested. You'll feel like a brand new you!
