Can’t Fall Asleep or Stay Asleep? 6 Products That Will Change Your Life

Can’t Fall Asleep or Stay Asleep? 6 Products That Will Change Your Life

When it comes to living a healthy life, proper nutrition, physical activity, and adequate sleep are all important. And while the first two are taken very seriously, many people don’t get enough sleep each night. In fact, 40 percent of Americans get less than six hours of sleep per night. That’s up from 11 percent in 1942.

While insufficient sleep can be linked to any number of conscious choices, there are also a lot of uncontrollable factors at play. These include chronic pain, sleep disorders, and poor environmental factors.

If you’re someone who has trouble falling asleep and staying asleep, you may find the following six products life changing. Check them out!

1. Purple Mattress

    For people with back pain, sleeping on a normal mattress can be painful and uncomfortable. That’s because mattresses are generally super soft or rock hard. Do you really want a mattress with either of those characteristics? What you want is a mattress that supports the spine while gently cradling the hips and shoulders.

    The solution is the new Purple mattress, which is soft where you want it, but firm where you need it. Made from a new material that’s never been used in the history of mattress manufacturing – and backed by numerous patents and proprietary technology – this mattress will astound you. Have trouble getting excited about a mattress? Well, if you aren’t thrilled after 100 nights, you can get your money back. That’s the strongest guarantee in the mattress industry.

    2. Philips Wake-Up Light

      Our bodies are designed in such a way that we’re meant to be awake and active when it’s light outside and asleep when it’s dark. The trouble is that many of us have to wake up before the sun rises, which can mess with our internal clocks and cause us to feel tired.

      That’s where the Philips Wake-Up Light comes into play. It’s an alarm clock that features a light that gradually gets brighter as it nears time to wake up. There are a handful of these products on the market, but this is by far the best.

      3. Gel’O Cool Mat

        Do you ever wake up sweating during warm spring and summer nights? If so, you’re aware of just how disruptive it can be for your sleep pattern. This mat is 24 x 35 inches long and is designed to be refrigerated and placed underneath your pillow or sheets. It’s supposed to dramatically lower your external body temperature and provide a cool night of sleep. It can also be microwaved in the winter when it’s cold in your bedroom.

              5 Fixes For Common Sleep Issues All Couples Deal With

              5 Fixes For Common Sleep Issues All Couples Deal With

              Sleeping next to your partner can be a satisfying experience and is typically seen as the mark of a stable, healthy home life. However, many more people struggle to share a bed with their partner than typically let on. Sleeping beside someone can decrease your sleep quality which negatively affects your life. Maybe you are light sleepers and you wake each other up throughout the night. Maybe one has a loud snoring habit that’s keeping the other awake. Maybe one is always crawling into bed in the early hours of the morning while the other likes to go to bed at 10 p.m.

              You don’t have to feel ashamed of finding it difficult to sleep with your partner and you also don’t have to give up entirely on it. Common problems can be addressed with simple solutions such as an additional pillow. Here are five fixes for common sleep issues that couples deal with.

              1. Use a bigger mattress to sleep through movement

              It can be difficult to sleep through your partner’s tossing and turning all night, particularly if they have to get in and out of bed. Waking up multiple times in one night can leave you frustrated and exhausted. The solution may be a switch to a bigger mattress or a mattress that minimizes movement.

              Look for a mattress that allows enough space so that your partner can move around without impacting you or consider a mattress made for two sleepers like the Sleep Number bed.[1] This bed allows each person to choose their own firmness level. It also minimizes any disturbances their partner might feel. A foam mattress like the kind featured in advertisements where someone jumps on a bed with an unspilled glass of wine will help minimize the impact of your partner’s movements.[2]

              2. Communicate about scheduling conflicts

              If one of you is a night owl and the other an early riser, bedtime can become a source of conflict. It’s hard for a light sleeper to be jostled by their partner coming to bed four hours after them. Talk to your partner about negotiating some compromises. If you’re finding it difficult to agree on a bedtime, negotiate with your partner. Don’t come to bed before or after a certain time, giving the early bird a chance to fully fall asleep before the other comes in. Consider giving the night owl an eye mask to allow them to stay in bed while their partner gets up to start the day.

              3. Don’t bring your technology to bed

              If one partner likes bringing devices to bed and the other partner doesn’t, there’s very little compromise to be found. Science is pretty unanimous on the fact that screens can cause harm to a healthy sleeper. Both partners should agree on a time to keep technology out of the bedroom or turn screens off. This will prevent both partners from having their sleep interrupted and can help you power down after a long day.

              4. White noise and changing positions can silence snoring

              A snoring partner can be one of the most difficult things to sleep through. Snoring tends to be position-specific so many doctors recommend switching positions to stop the snoring. Rather than sleeping on your back doctors recommend turning onto your side. Changing positions can cut down on noise and breathing difficulties for any snorer. Using a white noise fan, or sound machine can also help soften the impact of loud snoring and keep both partners undisturbed.

              5. Use two blankets if one’s a blanket hog

              If you’ve got a blanket hog in your bed don’t fight it, get another blanket. This solution fixes any issues between two partners and their comforter. There’s no rule that you have to sleep under the same blanket. Separate covers can also cut down on tossing and turning making it a multi-useful adaptation.

              Rather than giving up entirely on sharing a bed with your partner, try one of these techniques to improve your sleeping habits. Sleeping in separate beds can be a normal part of a healthy home life, but compromise can go a long way toward creating harmony in a shared bed.
