5 Ways to Fall Asleep Faster

August 09, 2019 1 min read

Ever struggled to fall asleep at night – whether it’s from an uncomfortable bed or stress? Here are 5 quick and easy ways to help you fall asleep faster tonight!

1. Hide the clock: It’s a fact that the light from technology hinders melatonin production in your body. Therefore, you end up staying up later if you keep staring at the clock counting the hours you aren’t sleeping.

2. No sweets before bed: Parents knew best! We grew up being told that sweets weren’t good before bed, and our parents were right. Ice cream and chocolate along with other sweets are also unknown sources of caffeine.

3. Cool rooms are your BFF: Did you know a person gets a better night’s rest when they sleep in a room between 65 and 67 degrees. A good tip is to take a lukewarm shower before bed to cool down your core temperature and wash off all the residual germs from the day!

4. Aromatherapy: Scents like vanilla, lavender, chamomile, and sandalwood are all great scents to put under your pillow or in your bath before bed! Fun fact: lavender is also great for warding off mosquitoes and spiders!

5. Mattress Matters: The way you sleep is a major factor in your sleep cycles. If your bed doesn’t provide comfortability and proper support for your body, it can increase your chance of insomnia. Luckily, DLX Mattress offers a great bed that allows you to easily interchange different foam layers to make sure your bed is perfect for you and your sleep patterns.
