Does gearing up for the holidays and its increase stress impact your sleep?
We may feel overwhelmed with the added “list” during this time of year, but as the dark nights of winter set in, we can sometimes feel like we have less energy; one way to help combat this could be to get more sleep! We all live such hectic lives, that this may seem like an impossible task but making some simple adjustments to your sleep environment may mean you wake up feeling like you have more energy, better concentration and feeling happier.
These changes won’t happen after a single early night. If you’ve had months of restricted sleep, you might have built up a significant sleep debt, so expect recovery to take several weeks. To begin with, ensure your bedroom is a relaxing and confortable space. ‘Your bed may have deteriorated by as much as 70% from its ‘as new’ state after 10 years. Even beds as little as six years old could offer significantly less support and comfort than a new one, thanks to wear and tear not just from body weight and movement but also sweat and debris such as skin and hair.’
This does not mean that you need to rush out and buy a new bed, but it may be time to try a mattress topper. You can transform your current mattress with the Naturest® Kenkopad®. Made from ecologically sound and renewable non-allergic latex, natural materials and Magnetic technology; it also helps with temperature regulation as you sleep.
To catch up on sleep; try to add on an extra hour or two, perhaps at the weekend. Start your bedtime routine earlier and go to bed when you’re tired, allowing your body to wake you up naturally in the morning. For extra comfort try the KenkoDream® Quilt, Naturest® Pillowcase and Naturest® Pillow. The revolutionary technology in the KenkoDream® Quilt and pillowcase, helps to regulate temperature while the Naturest® Pillow is fully adjustable with an internal collar to help towards achieving the most comfortable position. If you need to “quiet the mind” our sleep mask may just be the answer! Isn’t time you had a really good nights sleep?
If you stress is due to what to get those on your list…..consider a unique twist….how about giving the….
