- Choose a Comfortable Mattress
It should be common sense for most people to choose a mattress that supports the shape and weight of their body.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, up to 92 percent of people find a comfortable mattress to be an important part of a comfortable sleep.
Buying a mattress that’s suited for you has been shown to reduce stress. This could be from a number of factors. First off, mattresses can be a source of allergens. If you buy a mattress that’s made of a material you’re allergic to, of course you’re going to be uncomfortable.
Second, you’re not going to want a mattress that’s not compatible with your weight or size. You need a quality mattress that’s going to conform to the shape of your body. If you don’t, you’re going to deal with some unpleasant cramps.
2. Keep a Schedule
One of the worst enemies for someone who wants a good sleep is an improper sleep schedule. Your body relies on something known as the circadian rhythm to keep itself in check.
The circadian rhythm is what’s responsible for ensuring your body produces melatonin at the proper time. Melatonin is what your brain uses to decide when you’re going to sleep.
3. Your Bed Should be For Sleep, and Only Sleep
If you like to watch TV, eat your dinner, or play video games in your bed, you’re not doing yourself much help. Your brain tends to associate similar positions and areas with the activities that you perform in them.
