We aren't getting enough sleep. Whether it's checking work emails, watching TV in bed or just plain restlessness, more and more people find it difficult to switch off at night. Considering that you will spend a third of your life in bed, how can you make sure your bedroom is designed with sleep in mind?
1. Set up your space for relaxation
To transform your bedroom into an oasis of calm, make sure your bed is set up correctly. Where possible, make sure your bed is on legs, rather than a divan. This helps create a calming, floating sensation.
Some people find it helpful to position their bed facing the door; this calms our natural instinct to be situated in the most secure part of the room, and can help you feel that you have a clear view of your surroundings. Others may prefer to have their beds facing away from the window, as this reduces the chances of sunlight or glare from street lamps disturbing your sleep.
The position of your mattress is vital for getting into a comfortable sleeping position, especially if you and your partner tend to sleep at different angles. The Simba Motion Base adjusts to your preferred position, so that you can find the perfect angle for rest. The base also includes a massage function, to add help you relax even further and get your body ready for sleep.
2. Get comfy
It may sound obvious, but it is important to make sure that your bedding provides you with the comfort you need to drift off. How many of us have spent restless nights, tossing and turning under a lumpy duvet or misshapen pillows?
Duck down and feather duvets provide the perfect insulation for a cosy night, adding bulk to give you that important ‘tucked in’ feeling. The Simba Hybrid® Duvet with OUTLAST® is made with 90% duck down and 10% feathers, the perfect combination for breathability and comfort. The ‘phase change’ materials of OUTLAST® provides temperature control, giving you the rest you need at the right temperature for your body.
3. Keep it cool
A bedroom that is too hot or cold can cause restlessness, so make sure you are at a comfortable temperature for sleep - your bedroom should ideally be 16-18°C. Consider opening a window to circulate cooler air in the warmer months, and add blankets for chillier nights.
Invest in pillows and duvets to regulate your temperature; the Simba Hybrid® Pillow with OUTLAST® provides vital temperature regulation to keep you cool while you sleep. The fabric of the pillow uses a phase-change treatment originally developed by NASA to absorb, store and release heat, as you need it. Combine with the Simba Hybrid© Mattress, which uses Simba Sleep’s unique hypoallergenic airflow sleep surface and a unique, soybean-infused cooling comfort layer known as Simbatex to control temperature and provide the perfect night’s sleep.
