Restorative Sleep



Sleep is vital because it prepares our body and mind for optimal performance the following day. It is a known fact that a deep and relaxing slumber is what truly restores your body and mind and not the number of hours you sleep.
During sleep your body repairs itself and revitalizes organs and muscles. Sleep is important for proper functioning of the immune system and the nervous system.

The right mattress is the key to quality sleep: a mattress that reduces pressure points on different parts of your body and a cradling support that helps to maintain the natural shape of your spine while you sleep


Of all of life’s pleasures, one of the best and easiest to attain is a good night’s sleep. But with the hectic lives many of us lead and the strain put to us mentally and physically, attaining a great sleep sometimes seems like a luxury we cannot afford. However, restful and optimal sleep is an essential part of a healthy life, so take a little time to indulge and create a quality sleep experience.

Sleep And Your Health

First be aware that the lack of sufficient sleep can have the following results:

  •     Impaired performance the next day
  •     Increased propensity to stress and anger
  •     Below average concentration levels
  •     You can be more prone to injuries and health problems
  •     Impaired judgment (for example, driving after 17-19
  •     continuous waking hours is the equivalent to being legally drunk)
  •     Children can become irritable, restless, moody and lacking self-control
These are just a few of the obvious short term side effects of insufficient sleep. Take the time to indulge and pamper yourself with the following ‘guilt- free’ indulgences and ‘sleep tips’ and create a sleep retreat you cant wait to come home to.

Sleeping Tips

Choose A Large Sleeping Surface
Make sure you have a bed big enough for you and your partner if necessary; stretching out and sleeping comfortably is a must.

Sleep In A Cool, Dark Place
Setting the thermostat between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit makes curling up under a thick blanket the cozy pleasure it should be.

The Fabric of Our Nights
Smooth satin sheets made of 100 percent cotton can be very soft, the higher the thread count, the better.

Have Zen With Your Den
A peaceful mind is a restful mind, so keep TVs, computers or work-related items out of your bedroom. A clutter-free space is peaceful and relaxing. Hide the clock, too. The alarm will still find you when its time to get up. If you cant sleep, constantly looking at the clock only makes it worse.

Reduce Stress,
Try This Exercise Before Going to Bed Sit or lie down quietly in a comfortable position. Close your eyes, tense and then relax all of your muscles, beginning with your toes and progressing to your face. Breathe in easily through your nose, and exhale through your mouth. Continue for 10 to 20 minutes.

Take A Warm Bath Before Bed Just before going to bed,
take a warm, soaking bath. This will send blood away from the brain to the skin surfaces and make you feel relaxed and drowsy.

Avoid Alcohol Near Bedtime
Avoid any alcohol or caffeine for at least three hours before bedtime. It may cause you to wake up repeatedly, snore or exacerbate sleep apnea.

Snack Now, Sleep Later
If you’re hungry, your stomach wont let you sleep. Don’t indulge, eat something light like a piece of fruit or a bowl of cereal, nothing too big.

Exercise To Stay Fit
Exercise increases heart and lung fitness and reduces stress, anxiety and insomnia.

Stop smoking
Nicotine stimulates brain wave activity and increases blood pressure and heart rate. If you smoke, stop.

Keep To A Proper Diet
Eat vegetables and fruit, whole grain cereals and breads, rice, pasta, fish and poultry. Limit your intake of fat and fried foods.
Have a healthy breakfast, substantial lunch and a light dinner.
Stay away from foods that cause indigestion, gas or heartburn.

Stay Mentally Stimulated During The Day
Boredom can cause loss of sleep. If you are physically and mentally active, you’re less likely to become bored. Establish A Bedtime Ritual.
Engage in a nightly ritual of non-work related reading just before turning off the lights
