National Sleep In Day is Sunday 26th October!

The majority of people often don’t get enough sleep, National Sleep In Day (26 Oct, the day the clocks go back) provides an ideal opportunity to enjoy some extra time in bed, without any of the guilt!

Here at Naturalmat we don't need any extra encouragement to sleep in, but we know its not always easy. Here are our top 10 tips for sleeping in this weekend:

1. Remember to switch the alarm off before you go to sleep at night.
2. Unplug phones and ensure that radios or TVs are not set to come on at any time. Also, exposure to even the weakest glow at night, for example, your TV’s standby button can unconsciously play havoc with your body’s circadian rhythms so turn off at the wall.
3. Close curtains, preferably heavy ones that will block out the light that may disturb you.
4. Make sure you are sleeping on a good bed, one that’s not too soft, too hard, too small or too old is not conducive to a good night’s sleep, let alone a lie in.
5. The bigger your bed, the less the chance your sleep will be disturbed by your partner.
6. Monitor the temperature in the room. A room that’s too hot or too cold, too stuffy or too draughty can disturb sleep. Having a hot room is more likely to cause restlessness and temperatures having the room too cool can make it difficult to drop off.
7. Use adequate bed clothes, pillows and duvets for the time of year, layer with sheets or blankets which can be easily removed. Wear bed socks if you’ve got cold feet.
8. If you have young children, make sure you and your partner take a lie in turns with the ‘on duty’ partner responsible for keeping noise levels down.
9. Double glazing will cut down on external noise. A cheaper option would be ear plugs.
10. Avoid alcohol the night before. This isn't a sleep aid and will play havoc with sleep patterns. It may help you fall asleep initially, but will interrupt your sleep later in the night. 

Make sure your bed is up to scratch. Go to our website to see how you can make your bed even more comfortable!
