Need a Wake Up Call for Better Sleep?

{Post in conjunction with Bedding Co}
How’s this for a wake up call?
More than half (63%) of Australian adults have actively taken steps to improve their sleep quality in the past twelve months, with Australian adults among the most likely to use prescription sleep drugs compared to the rest of the world. These are the latest findings in a recent online study, The Philips annual sleep survey conducted in February by Harris Poll on behalf of Philips.This survey compares the sleep habits of over 15,000 adults across 13 countries (Argentina, Australia, Brazil, China, Colombia, France, Germany, India, Japan, Mexico, Poland, the UK, and the United States) and assesses how sleep is prioritised, addressed and perceived by populations around the globe.
Here are some recommendations to help you take control of your sleep health so hopefully, you can better enjoy your day without yawning every hour.
The findings prove that clearly, us Aussies are fair dinkum about our need for sleep.
Choose your sleep tools wisely by researching them!
Seek out a mattress that supports your body, but also one that remains cool and breathable. It’s really important that regardless of how tired you are, you take the time to research what’s on the market so you can find bedding that’s suited to you, your needs, and your budget. A great starting point is to check out bedding online first.

Pillow Talk

Seek pillows that offer correct, anatomical support for your neck to open airways, increasing oxygenation.  Pillows should not push your head into a forward position – think about the way you sit at your desk or when on the computer. You head leans slightly forward. You don’t want your pillow putting you in this posture.

When you sleep on your back and side, your pillow should support and lengthen your spine, encouraging a more peaceful sleep. Sleeping on your back with the correct contour for your neck, counteracts wrinkles and promotes beauty sleep too – naturally.

Sleep is a non- invasive, FREE anti-aging treatment.

Sleep plays a part amongst every vital organ in our bodies. That’s why it can dramatically affect the aging process. Visible signs of aging begin when there’s a breakdown of oxidation of tissue exceeding the normal growth and maintenance rate of tissues within our bodies.

Aim to maximise the body’s natural daily healing process with sufficient sleep to rejuvenate and restore cellular tissue, as well as minimising the breakdown of oxidation of cells. Sufficient sleep health is paramount in reducing the signs of aging. Plus, it’s free. No appointment necessary. Walk-ins welcome!  
Try becoming regimented with your sleep.
Sleep is just as critical to us -as water and food is. We require sufficient amounts of sleep to run our physiological engines. Poor quality sleep is like running on empty or not having eaten in days. Approach your sleep health with respect and work on attaining balance.
Did you know it takes approximately 90 minutes to complete one sleep cycle and a decent night’s sleep includes approximately five full circles? With better sleep practices, not only will you start to look more refreshed, your body will run more efficiently, your mental alertness will be on pointe, plus you will be less prone to illness.
Sleep quality takes work. When you think about it, we work on so many factors in our life like diet, exercise, improving our finances (or staying afloat). We make efforts to keep in touch with our loved ones and friends (even if only via Facebook, a simple text or phone call) – so don’t neglect working on improving your sleep quality. It’s really easy and is part of our everyday lives. It deserves our time.
