Sleep Tips

A good night's sleep means you wake up refreshed, energised and ready to face the day. And because we sleep for around eight hours every night, we spend around one-third of our lives in bed. So it’s important to choose the right bed. A Sealy Posturepedic bed provides you with the perfect balance of support and comfort for the ultimate night's sleep.

10 Tips for a Better Sleep

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT

Some people change their car or electrical appliances more often than they change their mattress or pillows. It is important to remember your bed plays an important role in your health and well-being.  One key thing to think about is comfort. If you’re uncomfortable in bed, it can be harder to get to sleep and you will toss and turn more.

Ask yourself, does your mattress provide enough support? Do you wake with an aching back? Is there room for you and your sleep partner? How well do you sleep when you’re away from home?

What Does Your Bed Mean to You?

If you can fall asleep easily on your couch or chair, but find it difficult to fall asleep in your own bed, you may be associating your bed with everything but sleep. Do you use your bed for work? To watch television? This tells your body to be alert in bed, not to go to sleep.

Learn to use your bed for sleep and follow a regular wake-up schedule. Initially, remain in bed only for the hours you actually sleep. As you get in to the habit of good sleep, increase your time in bed by 15 to 30 minutes a night.
