Top Ten Tips for Achieving a Better Night’s Sleep on World Sleep Day

With 30% of Britons struggling with sleep disorders, DUXIANA, renowned manufacturers of the most technically advanced mattresses and customised sleep systems, highlights the paramount importance of adequate restorative sleep in promoting both mental and physical well-being. As we commemorate World Sleep Day today (15th March), this alarming statistic underscores the urgent need to prioritise quality sleep while throwing the spotlight on the challenges affecting sleep health which include:
  • Enhanced Physical Health: Quality sleep has been linked to improved immune function, reduced inflammation, and a lower risk of chronic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.
  • Optimised Mental Well-Being: Adequate sleep is crucial for cognitive function, memory and emotional wellbeing. It can significantly contribute to better stress management and reduced symptoms of anxiety and depression.
  • Improved Performance and Productivity: Individuals who prioritise sleep consistently report enhanced focus, creativity, and problem-solving skills. Quality rest plays a pivotal role in boosting overall productivity and performance.
  • Weight Management: Lack of sleep has been associated with an increased risk of weight gain and obesity. Quality sleep regulates hormones that influence appetite and metabolism.

With these overarching benefits in mind, DUXIANA recommends these top 10 tips for achieving a better night’s sleep:

1.Be mindful of your food and drink before bedtime. Avoid going to bed hungry or overly full, steering clear of heavy meals within a couple of hours of sleep. Moderate your intake of nicotine, caffeine, and alcohol, as their stimulating effects can persist for hours and potentially disrupt your sleep. While alcohol may induce initial sleepiness, it can lead to disruptions later in the night.

  1. Choose a Supportive Mattress and Pillow: Prioritise comfort to alleviate discomfort and aches, promoting physical well-being.

3.Opt for Comfortable Sheets and Blankets: Maintain an ideal temperature throughout the night for uninterrupted sleep cycles.

  1. Block Out Light: Consider blackout curtains or a sleep mask to eliminate light interference, crucial for melatonin production.
  2. Dim the Lights: Foster melatonin production by dimming lights before bedtime, promoting a relaxed transition to sleep.
  3. Minimise Noise: Create a tranquil environment with tools like fans, white noise machines, or headphones for enhanced mental well-being.
  4. Set the Thermostat: Maintain a comfortable room temperature between 65-68°F, optimising physical and mental rest.
  5. Get At Least Seven Hours of Sleep: Schedule ample sleep time and unwind before bedtime to support overall health and well-being.
  6. Set a Consistent Wake-Up Time: Establish a regular sleep routine, including consistent wake-up times for improved cognitive function.
  7. Keep Naps Short: Limit daytime naps to around 20 minutes to avoid disruptions, promoting optimal sleep cycles.

“Quality sleep is not just a luxury; it’s a fundamental necessity for overall well-being. Making minor adjustments in our daily habits can significantly enhance sleep quality.

“For optimal sleep rejuvenation, your mattress choice is crucial. Investing in a high-quality, custom option like DUX yields enduring benefits, including enhanced sleep quality and exceptional comfort for longer, deeper, and more restorative sleep cycles. This choice also promotes superior spinal alignment, pressure relief, improved posture, and reduced discomfort.” Kevin Slade, Director of Growth at DUX.

DUXIANA’s deep sleep mattress, a product of over 90 years of research and development, boasts a patented system of latex, coils, and cotton encasement that outshines the benefits of most other innerspring mattresses. Designed for superior sleep, it allows the body to gently sink into the mattress, minimising movement and preventing disruptions to deep sleep. This innovative design delivers ergonomic support, ensuring uninterrupted rest throughout the night.

In an independent sleep study conducted by the Karolinska Institute of Sweden, the sleep patterns were measured. The researchers studied individuals sleeping on various innerspring mattresses, using an EEG to record the electrical activity in the brain’s cerebral cortex. The study demonstrated that DUX users not only reached the Deep Sleep stage faster but remained there longer.
