As a nation, we are terrible at sleeping. Between 30-50% of people suffer from insomnia at some point in their lives. The average person gets 6.9 hours of sleep a night when we should be getting 7-8 hours of sleep.
Getting a good night’s sleep is essential for our mental and physical health. That is why we have compiled a step-by-step guide to help you establish a solid sleep routine and a list of tips and suggestions for you to try if you need to try something different.
Getting the lighting right in your bedroom is important to help you feel super cosy or to help you wake up in the morning.
Candles are perfect for creating a warm glow to dimly light the room. They create an ambient mood to settle you. They are also perfect for chilly evenings.
Lamps have mute lighting for warm, cosy light and are great for helping you get into the mood for sleep. Most people have these by their bed.
LED daylight bulbs will brighten the room. They are ideal for helping you wake up and for feeling refreshed in the morning.
Do the same things before bed to train your brain when it is time to get some shut-eye. For example, change the light levels to low or read a book. Do not look at your phone for at least an hour before you are supposed to go to sleep.
Choosing the right bed, pillow and duvet will ensure that you sleep through the night and wake up refreshed. Everybody is different and has different needs. Some prefer soft mattresses, some prefer harder mattresses and some prefer memory foam. At Gardiner Haskins Interiors, we provide bespoke mattresses to fit your requirements. If your mattress isn't comfortable or supportive enough, visit our Bristol Beds showroom to explore our range of mattresses.
