How Well Do You Sleep?

How well do you sleep?

How much time do you think that we spend in bed, sleeping? It is actually a whopping 1/3rd of our life. So how much does it matter to what we sleep in and under the sheets. The mattress or the bedlinen, and taking into account the bedroom itself. Your bedlinen is a most important part of giving you that great nights sleep, and dependant on what type of bedlinen, whether cotton, linen, silk, or flannel, it is important that you choose wisely.

Firstly Make sure that you choose the right TOG quilt, its just as important that you get the season’s right as well, too heavy and summer will be a nightmare, too thin in winter and you will be as cold as an iceberg for the season and your personal body temperature. You’ll want bedding which is breathable and regulates your body heat systematically, making it less likely that you’ll get woken up from being either too cold, or over hot. When it comes to bed linen, spending a little extra on high quality that comes highly recommended.

Ten Tips for The Perfect Night’s Sleep

Ten Tips For the Perfect Sleep

Routine – a regular routine educates your body to sleep far better.  Try going to bed, sleeping and getting up at about the same time, every day – even weekends!

Exercise can make a bigger improvement to sleep than any other natural treatment – studies have shown that people who exercise regularly sleep better.

Relax your mind and body before going to bed – maybe have a warm (not too hot) bath, listen to some quiet music or a relaxation tape or do some yoga.  Studies show that combining pure essential oils with a calming routine works best for deep sleep.

Remove anything from your bedroom than can prevent or disrupt sleep.  Your brain needs to relax so don’t have mobile phones, computers or TV’s in your bedroom

Cut down on stimulants such as caffeine and try a milky drink or night time herbal tea instead.

Create a restful sleeping environment by keeping your bedroom for relaxation and sleep. Keep it at a comfortable temperature and it helps for the bedroom to be as quiet and dark as possible

Clear the clutter from your bedroom

Have a comfortable bed – if your bed is too small, too soft or hard, or the mattress is lumpy it may difficult to get deep, restful sleep. It could be worth investing in a new bed or a new mattress topper to add layers of comfort to your bed.

Choose your bedding carefully to ensure the right temperature – make sure you have the correct tog duvet for the time of year and organic cotton sheets. If you are too warm in bed it can lead to a disrupted night’s sleep.

While you sleep your body works hard to regulate your temperature so by using cool, breathable organic cotton bed linen which is effective in absorbing moisture and perspiration, it becomes much easier.

Change your bed linen regularly (at least once a week) – Any excess dust can irritate the airways which may disrupt sleep.

Spritz your pillow with lavender mist made from pure essential oils, close your eyes and drift off to sleep.

Sweet Dreams!

Are you feeling too hot and uncomfortable in bed at the moment?

It may be time to switch to cool, breathable cotton for a comfortable nights sleep!

Now the summer is here, it could time to introduce into your bedroom beautiful, soft organic cotton bed linen, lightweight silk duvets and silk pillows to keep as cool as possible during the hot nights.

Firstly ensure you have a lightweight duvet on your bed. Summer weights start at 3.0 Tog and 4.5 Tog are also nice and light. The pure silk range of duvets, pillows and mattress enhancers can help maintain your comfort on hot, sweaty nights, as they are naturally breathable and heat conducting.

Silk is naturally hypoallergenic and they really do help to regulate your body temperature, keeping you cooler on those hot nights.

Some people prefer just to sleep with a top sheet instead of duvet and have a light weight blanket if it gets a little chilly. If you are choosing sheets, the cooler option is for cotton especially organically grown cotton.

Organic cotton bed linens are very effective in absorbing moisture and perspiration and can help you have a healthy and comfortable night’s sleep. This high level of absorption helps to eliminate the excess sweating that some people can experience when sleeping in non-organic cotton or synthetic bed linens.

Synthetic fabrics like polyester do not breathe well and do not aid heat regulation during sleep.  are Some conditions such as fungal infections, like athletes’ foot may be aggravated by sweating and organic cotton bed linen may reduce incidences.

Organic cotton bed linen is breathable and pure, soft and gentle on the skin and is grown without nasty chemicals or pesticides. So when you buy organic cotton bedding you know it is of the highest quality and ensures the safest and most comfortable sleeping environment.

To maximise the benefits of sleeping in organic bed linen it is important to change and wash your linens frequently at a high temperature in a gentle, organic cleanser to help ensure that you keep your bedroom clean and fragrant and also free of irritants.

Being too warm in bed is one reason for a poor night’s sleep. While you sleep your body works hard to regulate your temperature so by using cool, breathable organic cotton it becomes much easier.
