See Broadway Medical Today for Better Sleep Tonight

Posted on in Stroke

It’s Better Sleep Month and Broadway Medical wants you to get better sleep and have better health. In the last blog we talked about finding the right bed for your needs. We talked about specialty beds and features, and now it’s time to talk about sleep and health and why it matters how well we sleep.

We were designed to sleep. In a perfect world, we wake up fresh and restored, ready to face the day! In the real world, many off us deal with sleep apnea.

If you have or even think you have sleep apnea, get tested right away. If you need a CPAP or a CPAP mask, see Broadway Medical today. The right sleep apnea treatment can make a huge difference to in your sleep.

Sleep is the foundation of good health. It’s important to make an overall commitment to healthy, restorative sleep. Here are some tips from the Better Sleep Council for maintaining a healthy sleep cycle and ensuring the best night’s rest:

Are you tired of not getting good sleep? Are you tired of not getting good sleep?

1. Make sleep a priority by keeping a consistent bedtime and wake schedule, including weekends.

2. Create a bedtime routine that is relaxing. Experts recommend reading a book, listening to

soothing music or soaking in a hot bath.

3. Create a room that is dark, quiet, comfortable and cool for the best possible sleep.

4. Evaluate your mattress and pillow to ensure proper comfort and support. If your mattress is five to seven years old,

it may be time for a new one. In general, pillows should be replaced every year.

5. Keep work materials, computers and televisions out of the bedroom.

6. Exercise regularly, but complete workouts at least two hours before bedtime.

7. If you sleep with a partner, your mattress should allow each of you enough space to move

easily. A queen mattress is ideal for two people sharing a mattress.

8. Avoid eating, alcohol, nicotine and caffeine close to bedtime. These can lead to poor sleep,

keep you awake or disrupt sleep later in the night.

 

We hope that these tips and our coverage of sleep and its importance to your health provide you with ways to get more quality sleep. We’ll be back next month with a new topic. Come by and see us at Broadway Medical soon!
