Top tips for a good night's sleep

The quality of your sleep has a direct link to your general health and sense of well-being. Follow our simple steps to create the perfect environment for restful, restorative sleep.

Do you have a Sleeping Partner?

The majority of adults who share a double bed have, on average, around 23 centimetres less space than a child in a single bed. Investing in a larger bed will provide you with more space and deeper, uninterrupted sleep.

How active are you?

Exercise at any time of the day promotes a better night's sleep. In addition, however, it's important to wind down properly at least two hours before going to bed.

Do you take your phone or tablet to bed?

Digital devices can seriously inhibit the quality of your sleep by suppressing the natural sleep hormone. It's best to turn off all digital devices at least 30 minutes before going to bed.

Do you have a Pre-sleep Routine?

A regular, planned pre-sleep routine helps ease your body and mind into deep, restful sleep. Develop a routine that works for you.

Do you have the right mattress?

If you like a firm mattress and your partner prefers gentler support, you could invest in a special mattress that meets both your needs. Alternatively, you could try a mattress topper or underlay for greater comfort.

How relaxing is your room?

Try to create a bedroom environment that is designed for rest, rather than being a home cinema or office space. It's worth considering your lighting plan and whether you may need extra bedding.

Is your bedroom the correct temperature?

It's generally believed that your body needs to drop by around 0.5°C to ensure a good night's sleep. Aim for a room temperature of around 16-20°C, the ideal temperature is 18°C.

Are you getting enough sleep?

Not everyone needs 8 hours sleep per night, in fact you may require less. But if you find you're feeling tired throughout the day, it's as good a sign as any that you're not getting enough hours in. It could be that your pillow isn't right for you, so consider one that supports your natural sleep position.

Is your room dark enough?

If you have unnatural light from security lights or street lights entering your room during the night, it may be breaking your sleep cycle. Blackout curtains are a great solution for unwanted light and external noise.
