Are you waking up tired? Well you’re not alone! So many of us suffer from inadequate sleep making us wake up tired, sore and grumpy. Getting a good night’s sleep is crucial for good health and well-being. At Harvey Norman we understand the importance of sleep and for the month of September we are celebrating Sleeptember®, to help you discover a good night’s sleep.
While there are many factors that contribute to a good (or bad) night’s sleep, one main factor affecting your sleep could potentially be your mattress. If your mattress is old, uncomfortable, too small, or just plain wrong for you and causing aches and pains, a new mattress will improve your sleep and well-being drastically. On average we spend one third of our lives in bed, so having a comfortable and supportive mattress is vital.
But how do we find a mattress that supports our individual comfort and body shape? There’s not one miracle mattress that’s suitable for every person.
When searching for your perfect mattress, there are various factors to consider:
- Do you prefer a firm mattress or more of a soft feel?
- Do you overheat in your sleep?
- How much space do you like when sleeping?
- Do you sleep on your back?
- Do you have allergies?
- Are you a light sleeper and wake up easily in the night?
All of these factors determine the type of mattress you need along with your body shape and size.
Here are our TOP 8 SLEEP TIPS to help you wake refreshed:
Light exercise of at least 20 minutes a day, will help burn off any excess energy.
