Want to wake up feeling fresh and rejuvenated every morning? Do these little things in your bedroom to sleep better at night.
You spend close to a third of your lifetime in your bedroom, or even more if you’re the kind who loves to Netflix in bed on lazy afternoons. That’s why it’s essential that your bedroom space is perfect for your rest and relaxation. Unfortunately, most of us don’t get enough quality sleep on a daily basis.
The hot and humid weather is a constant bugbear in Singapore. Feeling all sweaty and sticky before bedtime sucks, and it definitely isn’t going to help you sleep soundly. While a soft mattress may feel comfortable, your body tends to sink in, restricting the air circulation between the mattress and your body, causing you to feel warm. Your achy back and neck from long hours in the office also get in the way of quality sleep. Make these little tweaks to your bedroom, and you’ll be off to slumberland in no time, for the best sleep ever.
What can you do?
Use a mattress topper
Most of us work at busy deskbound jobs, resulting in long hours in front of the computer and frequent late nights. Moreover, the Singapore heat zaps away our energy. After an exhausting day, a mattress that fails to give us the support our bodies need results in an uncomfortable night’s sleep, making us even more tired than before. For a change, try adding a mattress topper such as Airweave’s Smart 035.
Using a functional mattress topper is a great way to give your bedding a new lease of life. Airweave’s Smart 035 mattress topper ensures you are sleeping on a flat surface, for optimal spine alignment. The firm and highly resilient material will help to distribute your weight evenly across the mattress for you to sleep soundly. Additionally, Airweave’s mattress topper does wonders to regulate your body temperature so you can sleep better. Simply lay it over your mattress – it effectively dissipates heat and moisture from your body to help you cool down instantly.
Since most of us sleep on a relatively soft mattress, the addition of a firm topper will take some time to get used to. To our pleasant surprise, we woke up feeling refreshed and ready to tackle the day ahead. After one week of sleeping on Airweave’s topper, we felt rejuvenated. While the price of the mattress topper ($760) seems a little steep, it is a worthwhile investment for better sleep.
Upgrade your pillow
Pillows that are too flat or too thick may cause you to suffer from neck and back pain. Since your pillow bears the weight of your head every day, the National Sleep Foundation in the US suggests replacing your pillow every one to two years. If you’re not sure what pillow height suits you, the best way is to experiment to find out. Try Airweave’s Beauty Pillow, which is neither too thick nor soft, giving your neck the comfortable support it needs, and preventing wrinkles from forming on your neck too. It comes with removable pads for you to adjust the pillow’s height to your preference, and is made from soft cotton gauze to keep the allergies at bay. We were amazed by how soft yet supportive the pillow felt. Bonus: It comes in an adorable pastel pink pillow case.
Indulge in aromatherapy
Having your favourite fragrance in the bedroom promotes sleep. When your body detects a familiar scent you love, it releases feel-good and relaxing chemicals that calm your mind and body to induce sleep. Some great ways to introduce fragrances to your room are to use scented candles or reed diffusers. Good news: Airweave is giving out linen mists that come with an invigorating citrusy scent to their first 30 customers. Valid at the Airweave counter at Basement 1, Takashimaya Department Store from June 28, 2018.
Airweave Smart 035 ($760) and Beauty Pillow ($280) are available at Takashimaya Department Store.
