There are tons of products on the internet that claim to give consumers a better sleep. But how do we know if they actually work?
A lot of the time, it’s hard to tell.
Though, there are plenty of products that have been reviewed by consumers and have been said to actually help improve sleep quality.
Here are 5 must-have products that will give you a better sleep:
Weighted blankets have been all the rage in recent years because they reduce anxiety and promote high quality sleep.
This is because these blankets use deep touch pressure.
DTP is when weight is evenly distributed across the body, which stimulates the brain’s natural production of serotonin. This hormone creates the feeling of calmness.
DTP also builds up melatonin in your brain, which is a hormone that makes you feel sleepy.
Many people use diffusers around their house to give their spaces a nice scent.
But did you know that certain aromas can actually encourage relaxation and help you fall asleep?
Aromas such as lavender, eucalyptus, and sandalwood promote relaxation by lowering your blood pressure. Lowered blood pressure can help you fall asleep.
Diffusers come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you’re bound to find one that fits with your home décor.
Early morning light can often wake us up from sleep long before we’re ready.
To prevent that from happening, pick up some black out curtains.
These curtains have a tightly woven backing that absorbs natural light, keeping your bedroom dark, even during the day.
In addition to keeping the room dark, they also help regulate the room temperature by acting as an insulator.
Both temperature and light are important factors that affect your sleep quality, making blackout curtains an essential buy.
What tells our bodies that we’re tired is melatonin. It’s a natural hormone that our brain produces around bedtime that makes us feel sleepy.
Sometimes though, if our circadian rhythm is out of sync, our bodies won’t produce the melatonin we need to fall asleep.
And that’s where melatonin supplements come in.
Take a melatonin supplement around 30-minutes before going to bed, so that your body will naturally feel tired. Not only will you be able to fall asleep quicker than usual, you will stay asleep throughout the night.
Thermal Balance Pillows
Thermal Balance pillows are great for those who love laying their head down on a cool pillow when they go to sleep.
These pillows use cool-touch technology that keeps the surface of the pillow cool throughout the night. The fabric absorbs the heat and disperses it to the back of the pillow, away from the surface.
This makes for a comfortable, temperature-controlled sleep.
You can find these pillows at Majestic Mattress in Kelowna and West Kelowna.
