Turn Your Bed into a Sleep Oasis With These Three Simple Tips

Even if you already exercise regularly and eat relatively healthy foods, sustaining good sleep habits is also an imperative part of a healthy lifestyle. Peaceful sleep can help decrease daily stress and anxiety while keeping you fresh and alert to tackle all of life’s obligations. So resist the temptation of just one more Netflix episode, turn off all devices, and settle in for a good night’s sleep. And to help you achieve that much-needed slumber, here are three simple tips to transform your bed into the perfect sleep sanctuary.

1. Get the Right Pillows and Keep Them Fresh

Where you lay your head to catch some Zs is important. In fact, a poor pillow can lead to neck and back pain, as well as, uneasy sleep. Your pillow shouldn’t be too flat or too thick, but rather it should provide just the right amount of neck support and should always be comfortable to rest on.

It’s also paramount to wash pillowcases regularly to keep bacteria and allergens at bay. Plus, pillows must be replaced often—at least once a year—for optimal cleanliness and support.

So if your pillows have seen better days or just don’t give you the support you need for proper relaxation, then get yourself some comfortable and fresh EthoHome pillows.

2. Dress your Bed in Comfortable Sheets

Just as important as the right pillows are comfortable sheets to cozy up to after a long day. Wrapping yourself in luxurious sheets that feel great on your skin can get your body and mind ready for a restful night of deep sleep. Also, the right sheets are crucial to maintain ideal body temperature—being too hot or too cold can prevent you from drifting off into dreamland.

When talking about sheets, thread count is the total number of horizontal and vertical threads per square inch. In general, the more threads, the softer the feel of the sheet. So opt for sheets with higher thread counts for better bedding. Of course, similar to pillowcases, keep sheets clean by washing them regularly.

If your sheets are looking a bit threadbare and feel scratchy on your skin, it’s time to deck your bed out in some luxury EthoHome bedding.

3. Invest in a Weighted Blanket

For some seriously deep sleep, invest in a weighted blanket. There’s plenty of research out there that shows that a weighted blanket—weighing around 10% of your body weight—can lead to more restful sleep. The deep touch pressure stimulation that a weighted blanket offers is similar to the comforting feeling of a hug.

Additionally, using a weighted blanket has been linked to decreased levels of stress and anxiety. Browse our collection of EthoHome weighted blankets to find the right one for you.
