How to Sleep Better for National Bed Month
Throughout March it’s National Bed Month, an annual awareness campaign set up by the Sleep Council to raise awareness of how important a good, comfortable bed is in helping to achieve a good night’s sleep.
Comfort – whether that’s the bed you sleep in, the environmental factors in your room, or how you feel physically and mentally – all play a huge part in getting a good night’s sleep. A good starting point is to ensure you have a comfortable and supportive mattress with the right duvet and pillows to suit your needs.
Did you know that we spend, on average, one-third of our lives in bed? So we should make sure our bed is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible! Below we have created a small guide on things to consider when creating the perfect bed for slumber.Beware of The Wrong Mattress – it is crucial to find the right mattress that enables you to get the right support for your back as well as the right comport level to help achieve a great night’s sleep. It important to note that there’s not one miracle mattress suitable for all – some of us will require something softer whereas others will benefit from firmness. Make sure to choose one that meets your personal criteria for support and comfort – try before you buy!
- Cotton – cotton is known for its durability, versatility and breathability so ideal for luxury bed linen
- Linen – renowned for its ability to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Although easily creased, it is beautifully soft which improved with every wash.
- Poly blend – a mixture of cotton fibres and polyester – popular due to its level of comfort and ease to care for
- Silk – one of the more expensive choices, silk is hypo-allergenic with the ability to keep you cool in summer and warm in winter. This material is much more delicate and therefore not ideal for family households.
