Tips for a Better Night’s Sleep
Do you find yourself struggling to get a good night’s sleep? A sufficient sleep allows the body to heal and recover following a hard day of work. Making a few simple changes can help to assist in improving sleep quality and ensure that you wake up feeling energized and ready to tackle the day. Did you know that pillows not only provide comfort, but actually aim to help neutralise and support body position during sleep? Pillows act to fill the space that can lead to joints being displaced from non-neutral positions. It is important that your pillow fully supports you head at a height that allows for neutral alignment of the spine. As well as this, sleeping on your stomach can lead to an increased risk of neck pain. If you can avoid it, steer clear. Sleeping in this position makes it very difficult for you to maintain a neutral position and can also restrict blood flow to your hands and arms. In conjunction with these, maintaining a regular sleeping pattern and winding down before bed by avoiding electronic screens can aid in ensuring you get the most out of your night’s sleep.
