How a good night’s sleep can be the key to stress-free days
Life comes with no shortage of stressful situations. From looming work deadlines, bills that need to get paid, to thoughts about the ongoing pandemic — these day-to-day stressors are enough to keep our minds racing at all hours.
While it is more difficult to get a wink in during these difficult times, a good night’s sleep is scientifically proven to restore the body, improve concentration, and more importantly help cope with stress better.
This April, as we celebrate Stress Awareness month, we’re here to guide you on your way to a restful night’s sleep and to more stress-free days!
Breaking Bedtime Habits
Making small adjustments to your pre-sleeping routine can greatly improve the quality of sleep you’re getting. Simple things like allotting 10 minutes to do a short meditation, to airing out frustrations through a journal, or keeping your gadgets out of arm’s reach at least half an hour before sleeping can already go a long way in helping you wind down, de-stress, and get ready for a restful night’s sleep.
Investing in Better Sleep
Filling your room with aromatic oils and scented candles can set the mood for a more relaxed bedtime, but these can only do so much. Study shows that getting the right pillows and mattresses that match the comfort and support your body needs can be the real game-changers in getting the most out of your sleep .
