If you find yourself waking up repeatedly at the same time of the night, you might just be worried about where your lack of sleep is stemming from. While waking up in the night is normal, how quickly you’re able to go back to sleep determines the quality of rest you’re getting.
If you find yourself tossing and turning after a nightly interruption, however, there are some likely causes for your lack of sleep. Studies show that waking up in the middle of the night can be a pretty telling side-effect of insomnia.
Here are some of the reasons you may be waking up repeatedly, and what you can do about it to get some much-needed shut-eye.
A room temperature of between 60 - 67 degrees Fahrenheit is ideal for a restful night of sleep. If you find yourself suffering from night sweats, your lack of sleep may be caused by a lack of circulation in your room.
Your mattress needs to keep cool in order for you to be able to do so. The best mattresses tend to have climate-adaptive technology that helps to regulate your body temperature to help you achieve the best possible sleep. Puffy mattresses are made with exactly this in mind: our ClimateComfort™ layers prevent sudden temperature swings, giving you coolness that is consistent, comfy and calming throughout the night.
If you’re predisposed to being more anxious than calm, it can be tough to get your mind to stop racing about everything the next day is about to bring. Waking up in the middle of the night as a result of anxious thoughts or nightmares can be a really common cause for sleep interruption. A lack of sleep that comes from stress may seem difficult to solve, but really, there’s a simple solution.
Proper sleep hygiene when it comes to stress management starts with accepting there are external factors that will always influence your mood. Look into starting a meditation practice, and think about using sleep accessories to help with your rest. If you’re convinced you already own the best mattress for your sleeping style, Puffy’s weighted blankets are designed for stressed-out sleepers who need a little extra comfort to plug out of the outside world.
The gentle pressure stimulation in our weighted blankets means you feel enveloped in a cozy, never stuffy, embrace, while the plush mink exterior keeps you comfortable.
Sometimes, what feels like the most comfortable sleeping position for you does more harm than good, causing a lack of sleep. If you sleep on your stomach or in a fetal position, you may be constricting your airways, creating interruptions during your sleep.
The best mattresses are ones that can account for every type of sleeper - memory foam mattresses are specially designed to provide the perfect amounts of support and comfort to back, stomach, and side sleepers.
The more comfort and ease with which you’re able to rest, the less likely it is you’ll be putting unnecessary strain on any one area in your body.
Perfecting how to go to sleep after you’ve been interrupted by a poor quality of rest is easier said than done. Memory foam mattress or not, the best mattress for you can be found and made accessible through a little bit of time, commitment, and research.
Investing in your sleep by thinking about how the best mattress for your sleep position, the right weighted blanket, and a proper night routine should really be a priority when you’re looking to shift into taking better care of yourself.
Self-care is an incredibly important way to invest time and energy back into yourself, and whether that’s through getting yourself a weighted blanket or simply taking the time to cultivate better sleeping practices, you’ll be surprised at the impact it makes on your sleep patterns.
