National Bed Month is here!
Yes, that’s a whole month dedicated to encouraging you to spend more time in bed – what could be better?
Organised by the National Sleep Council, National Bed Month takes place every year throughout March. Its main purpose is to create awareness of the importance of getting a good night’s sleep – and how having the right bed can help.
Here at Sleepeezee, we couldn’t agree more and we think you should get involved too. Here’s a list of ways you can make the most of National Bed Month.
Put your bed through an MOT
You sleep in it for 6 – 8 hours a night, almost 365 nights a year. In fact, you probably spend more time in your bed than in any other place in your home. But when was the last time your bed had an MOT?
Fortunately, a bed MOT (that’s Mattress Obsolescence Test) doesn’t involve lugging your mattress to the nearest servicing centre. You can carry out your very own assessment from the comfort of your home, by taking The Sleep Council’s quick quiz.
Complete a digital detox
Do you frequently find yourself falling asleep with the TV playing away in the background?
There’s no denying technology has a big role to play in our lives – but it shouldn’t at bed time. It’s well known that digital distractions can play havoc with our sleeping routines, so why not kick tech out of your bedroom this month and see how it improves your sleep – chances are you won’t even miss it!
Watch your diet
Avoid over-eating before bedtime this month and choose foods with sleep-promoting chemicals such as chicken, turkey, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, peanuts, beans and milk.
Equally, limit stimulants such as alcohol and caffeine which reduce sleep quality and prevent you feeling rested.
Try out a new mattress – Sleepeezee style
National Bed Month is the perfect time to start thinking about a new mattress. What you sleep on plays a huge part in how well you sleep.
A bed with the correct support and comfort will ensure you wake less throughout the night, aren’t disturbed by your partner and are less likely to wake up feeling tired or aching.
If your bed isn’t doing its job make sure you discover our collection of handcrafted beds, each designed to give you the perfect night’s sleep.
Upgrade your bedding
When it comes to creating your optimal sleeping environment, it’s not just about the bed itself.
While your bed and mattress are vital to a healthy, rested night’s sleep, it’s really important to combine them with bedding that performs too.
So if you’ve completed your bed MOT and are happy with your mattress choice, it’s time to turn your attention to your bedding. And what better way to treat yourself than with some luxury textiles? For maximum comfort, look for natural fibres for the perfect sleep-enhancing combination.
There you have it, our five top tips to help you make the most of National Bed Month.
