My Personal Super Easy Sleeping Tip
So easy my personal sleeping tip focuses on something each and every one of us can do.
Make a wish and dream it!
Whenever I have something troubling me or can not sleep for whatever reason I lie down, close my eyes and think of the solution I would like. If there is an important meeting the next day, I play the whole meeting in my mind until I get the outcome I really would like. An argument with a loved one will make me think of how I wish the situation to be resolved. Something troubling me with my work and I play the visionary with myself and think of my dream scenario for the future.
You might laugh but more often than not my dream scenario becomes reality!
Of course you need to dream carefully…if it involves getting someone else to behave differently you have to dream the whole scenario which will involve YOU changing something that will result in the other person doing what you want – smile!
The jet lag dream – If you can’t sleep because of jet lag the trick is to stay calm. Tell yourself simply resting in bed is almost as good as proper sleep and think of all the lovely things you would like to do the next day.
Sleeping Tips from the Professionals at Elite Beds
1. The golden rule is to invest in a good mattress
2. Protect yourself from a too hard mattress
– hard mattresses are often recommended for back problems but it is still important to take your body weight into account so that the mattress is able to shape itself properly.
3. A good bed is key but might not be the only problem to you sleeping badly
A healthy lifestyle with plenty of sleep, enough down time and the right diet also are major factors contributing to a good sleep.
Before investing in your next mattress speak to the professionals for real advice.
There are so many factors to take into account. A mattress should be perfect for your body weight and shape. It needs to offer support in the right places. I personally have learnt so much by speaking with the professionals at Elite beds and can only recommend you do the same!
