Tips For Better Sleep

The quality of sleep is the foundation of your health and well-being. Feeling well-rested in the morning goes a long way towards staying productive and stress-free all day long. However, many people don’t know how to improve their sleep. They struggle with insomnia, lack of energy, and loss of productivity.

At Unlimited Comfort, we have decades of experience helping people in and around Sarasota make the most of their nighttime. To sleep better, we recommend following these simple tips.

Minimize Noise

Noise can interrupt your sleep during REM (Rapid Eye Movement) and deep sleep stages. Since these phases are key to physical and mental restoration, the importance of reducing noise is especially high. Even if you don’t wake up, persistent noise can elevate stress hormone levels and make your sleep less fulfilling.

Here is how to minimize noise:

  • Use earplugs
  • Rearrange your space to keep the bed away from noise sources (e.g., windows or walls)
  • Consider using a white noise machine
  • Turn off electronic devices that emit noise (TVs, computers, phones)
  • Think about installing extra insulation

Most importantly, set a consistent sleeping schedule. If your body gets used to falling asleep and waking up at the same time, it may be less prone to react to occasional noises.

Adjust Your Thermostat

The quality of your sleep depends on the quality of the sleeping environment, which, in turn, depends on the temperature. By setting the thermostat to around 65°F, you are creating the perfect setting for comfort and relaxation.

Cooler temperatures help maintain the body’s circadian rhythm (internal clock that regulates sleep and wakefulness) and facilitate the transition into REM and deep sleep.

Consider investing in a smart thermostat, which automatically adjusts temperatures based on your sleep schedule. Make sure to clean and maintain your HVAC system to ensure high air quality and temperature consistency.

Block Out the Lights

The best way to sleep is to do it without any light. Darkness stimulates the production of melatonin, a hormone that signals your body that it’s time to sleep. By keeping the lights on, you could be interfering with melatonin production and making it harder for yourself to fall asleep.

Here are a few tips to consider:

  • Using blackout curtains
  • Wearing an eye mask
  • Covering electronic displays
  • Installing dimmer switches
  • Blocking door cracks

Consistent exposure to light during the night hours could hurt your circadian rhythms and affect your sleep quality. While you may still fall asleep on time, you may not feel rested in the morning.

Invest in a Quality Mattress

The quality of your mattress is one of the main factors contributing to the quality of your sleep. Here is how:

  • Support: A high-quality mattress provides support and alignment for your spine so you don’t experience aches and pains during the night.
  • Pressure relief: High-quality mattresses distribute body weight evenly. This alleviates pressure points and prevents discomfort.
  • Less Tossing and Turning: A comfortable mattress minimizes tossing and turning, which could interrupt your sleep.
  • Allergy Prevention: Quality mattresses are made from hypoallergenic materials that reduce the risk of allergies and promote a healthier sleep environment.

Before buying a mattress, you need to conduct detailed research about the type of mattress that suits your sleeping needs.
