It’s a fairly simple equation: better sleep = better life. And a bunch of little mini equations tell you exactly how to achieve that better sleep. We’ve got enough hours + enough quiet = better sleep, and a consistent schedule + relaxing pre-bed activities = better sleep. And—perhaps most importantly—we have the right mattress + your unique needs = better sleep. Awesome, right? Because this means that a better life is right around the corner!
I’ve heard people again and again refer to a larger bed as a “luxury.” A queen or king-sized bed is often something that is spoken of longingly but considered, for whatever reason (too expensive, not enough room in your room, yada yada) unattainable.
I think it’s about time we erase this idea. One of the most important variables in achieving your best sleep is enough room in your bed. You should never feel restricted and should always have enough space to move around. If you’re sharing a bed, this usually means that a larger bed is necessary. And your mattress should most definitely fit your size, which, for larger people, could mean investing in a more supportive model. (Englander’s definitely got you covered here—oh hey Posture Support Plus.)
Heading to bed with a clear mind is vital to a great night’s sleep. You’ve gotta shake off the pressures and stressors of your waking life before slipping in between those sheets. That annoying colleague at work or quickly-approaching deadline should be muted until you are back in your office. Reading a book or listening to soothing music before bed can help fade distressing thoughts.
It’s also a great feeling to know that your mattress is doing it’s part to save the world—and with Englander’s green line of mattresses you don’t even need to break out the Superman sheets! Organic materials and energy-saving business practices mean that sleeping on one of Englander’s green mattresses is like winning the environmental karma jackpot. You can for sure sleep soundly knowing that your mattress is helping to reduce your carbon footprint.
While establishing a pre-bedtime ritual may be the most vital thing to remember when seeking the elusive perfect night’s sleep, it’s also important to remember to stay in touch with your body’s changing needs. Going to sleep at 10pm every night is great, until it just doesn’t work anymore. Maybe your job requires you to get up a little earlier now, or your kids need your attention later into the night. Whatever it may be, the point is that it’s key to monitor how your lifestyle changes and adjust your sleep habits accordingly. Handily, Englander is here to help you make those adaptations.
Maybe the most important equation to remember is knowing yourself + caring for your changing needs = better sleep (= better life).
