With coronation fever sweeping the nation, it seems only fitting to take a leaf out of the royals’ book and work on getting a night’s sleep that is worthy of a king.
If you struggle with your sleep then you will know more than anyone the difference a good night’s sleep can make. As well as improving your physical and mental health, sleep helps to reduce stress and leads to better long term health. What’s not to love?
But how to catch that elusive royal rest? We at Sleeptight know that a one size fits all approach doesn’t work because everyone is different and this is certainly true when it comes to the ingredients for a good night’s sleep.
What works for one person might not work for everyone but there are a few headlines that we feel will certainly help to contribute to sleep that is worthy of a royal.
Going back to basics and getting the right mattress for you means you’re off to the best start. Some people prefer a firm bed whilst others like a bed they can sink into and you also have to consider your bedfellow, if you have one, and find something that suits you both. This is where going into a showroom and trying before you buy is the best option.
The next logical step in making your sleep is as comfortable as possible is ensuring you have the correct pillow that supports your head and neck and promotes a good night’s sleep. Your sleeping position will dictate the best pillow for you, ie if you sleep on your side a thinner pillow works better, or if you sleep on your front, then a thicker pillow might be more comfy.
Next you need to consider the lighting in your bedroom. Blackout blinds or curtains have been proven to help promote a more restful night’s sleep as you aren’t disturbed by the light in the morning and are more likely to sleep better for longer.
Many people are turning to noise machines as a way to help them fall asleep and stay asleep. There are lots of different styles of noise you can choose from, so you can find something that works for you from white noise, sounds of the sea or nature noise, to name just a few.
Let’s hope King Charles III uses our tips to get himself the best night’s sleep before the coronation…
Getting the right temperature in your bedroom is crucial to securing sleep fit for a king. Apparently the ideal room temperature is between 15 and 19 degrees Celsius so a thermometer in your bedroom might be helpful to achieve the correct sleeping temperature.
