Born Sleepy: 3 Top Tips for a Restful Time in Bed
At LOGICDATA, we often say that our adjustable bed bases are made to measure for the businesses that sell them. Which, given features like the market’s smallest packaging, no oversize charges with UPS and FedEx, and dropshipping capabilities… isn’t an outrageous assumption.
But what about the people who sleep in our beds? When you buy a COSMO Line adjustable frame by LOGICDATA, you invest in a premium bedroom product that can transform the way you sleep at night. However, getting yourself awesome bed isn’t the only way to improve your sleep. For this blog post, we’ve put together our simple, three-step guide to sleeping better: forming the habits that can lead to lasting changes to the way you approach your night-time rest.
#1 Phone Off, Lights Out.
Modern technology is designed to be immersive. Think about the next episode of Squid Game starting before the old one has even finished… or the never-ending deep dives into TikTok, Instagram and the like. This isn’t an accident: the more you use your phone, the more money that big tech providers can make from selling advertisements to show to you.
Who pays the highest price? You do. Binge watching, doomscrolling and all the rest can have serious consequences to your sleep patterns. There are many reasons to reduce screen time before bed, from physical, to psychological, to plain common sense. Here are just some of the ways that media binging at the end of the day can cause an unhealthy relationship with sleep:
- You don’t sleep enough. According to guidelines by the CDC, adults generally need seven hours or more of sleep per night (the actual total differs from person to person). As such, if you’re awake until 3 a.m. watching Netflix, you’ll need to sleep through to at least 10 a.m. to make up for it, and if you have to be at work by 9 a.m. … you get the picture. Something has to give. Seeing as a lack of sleep may lead to high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attack, heart failures and strokes, obesity, depression, reduced immune system function, and lower sex drive – maybe it’s time to say no to “one more episode”.
- You’re too alert to sleep. Falling asleep is much easier when your mind is clear and your thoughts are in order. If the last Facebook post you saw sparked a whole internal monologue about the state of the world, or the last email you read brought you out in a cold sweat… dropping off at night becomes that much harder.
- Your sleep is poor quality. The reason that humans are generally awake in the day and asleep at night is because of Circadian Rhythm – the instinct that tells us when it’s time to sleep and when we need to wake up. However, modern technology has the potential to disrupt hormones including melatonin, vital to Circadian Rhythm, which in turn makes it harder to achieve a healthy balance. Long term, this can cause serious health issues, and while you could invest in some blue-light blocking goggles, a much easier way is to avoid looking at bright screens in the two to three hours before bed.
#2 Get Some Help.
Paradoxically, some of the problems caused by technology can actually be solved by… technology itself. There are plenty of apps and IoT health devices – often known as wearables – that can provide valuable insight and advice into the way we sleep. Most smart devices, especially smart watches such as the Apple Watch, notice when you are asleep and stop notifications during this time. You’ll also get a nightly report on how you slept the night before, in addition to guidance on achieving a desired sleep schedule.
You can take this a step further with wearable devices like the Oura Ring, which measures physiological signals to give you an overview of your health and wellbeing. Not only can the ring provide 24/7 heart rate monitoring, you’ll also get a nightly sleep score, based on an analysis deep sleep, REM sleep, light sleep, nightly heart rate, bedtime schedule, and more.
#3 Get the Right Bed.
A healthy, productive day starts (and ends) in bed – in fact we can spend up to a third of our daily lives sleeping or resting. That’s why, if you’re serious about improving the quality of your sleep, a first-class adjustable bed should be your first port of call.
All adjustable bases have benefits. Not only does an adaptable position allow you to sleep in exactly the right pose every night, it also makes getting in and out of bed far easier. However, the COSMO Line by LOGICDATA provides even greater benefits to end users: rather than just a bed, we’ve created three incredible products – the COSMO Sydney, the COSMO Austin and the COSMO Vienna – that make your bed part of a lifestyle, not just a furnishing.
