Since sleep researchers point to too little sleep as a primary contributing factor to many common diseases, it’s apparent that it’s not just important but imperative to sleep well. Fortunately, those same sleep medical professionals have also revealed the circumstances that affect quality of sleep. Minimal lifestyle adjustments can pay big dividend when it comes to catching your zzz’s.

5 Keys To A Restful Sleep

These are five recommendations to ponder before you even think about look for a sleeping pill at the pharmacy or ask your doctor for a prescription.

  • Indulge in good bedding.

    Getting a enjoyable night’s rest may be as easy as purchasing a new sleeping surface. Due to the plush support and unique feature of contouring every curve of the body, many people find memory foam mattresses allow them to fully relax at night. Indulge in the very best bed linens you can affordas well. Sheets with the highest thread count are velvety and luxurious, and your blankets and comforters should also give you a feeling of being pampered. Some mattress suppliers give away free bedding when you buy a new mattress, but these are more often than not of a cheaper quality as they are a free add-on for buying the mattress. When it comes to bedding, the best things in life are not free.

  • Be consistent.

    Going to bed at the same time every night and getting up at the same time every morning (yes, even on weekends) puts your body on a regimented sleeping pattern. After a while, it will “look forward to” to sleeping at a certain time, and you may not even need an alarm clock to get up for work. (Most people agree their morning’s are less stressful when they wake up naturally.)

  • Create a relaxed sleeping environment.

    Your bedroom should be cool, dark and quiet. Even the smallest amount bit of clatter or luminosity-such as the ticking of a clock or a light left on outside-can disturb sleep, even though the sleeper may not be conscious of it. Do what you have to: A sleep mask and room darkening blinds will screen out the daylight; earplugs and “white noise” like a ceiling fan can help with interfering noises. Seventy degrees is the optimal sleeping temperature. Make sure you don’t go above 75 or below 54.

  • Take it easy.

    Stress wreaks havoc on sleep. Find a way to distress prior to going to sleep. Do a bit of light reading, meditate, do a number of moderate stretches, or take a warm bath.

  • Watch caffeine intake.

    Caffeine stays in your system longer than you might think-up to eight hours. For better sleep, you should prevent caffeine consumption at least six hours before you go to sleep. Remember that soda pop drinks, tea, and chocolate all contain caffeine.


Nearly all of people who have used these suggestions vastly enhanced their sleep quality which in turn provides a refreshed body and clear mind in the morning. Try them out four yourself and see how much better you can feel.
