A good night’s sleep is important for both physical and mental well-being. If you’re finding yourself tossing and turning or waking up throughout the night, it might be time to consider bedding that’s a better fit for you and your unique sleep style. We’ve put together this list of our top bedding tips to help get you on the path to a better, deeper and longer sleep - so you can not only sleep better, but live better and feel better too!
Sleep at the right temperature
Finding (and staying) at the right temperature throughout the night is important for a restful sleep. If you find yourself waking up in the middle of the night feeling either chilly or hot and sweaty, bedding made from breathable, natural fibers will help regulate your temperature, keeping you cozy while you snooze. Consider duvets filled with goose down, Mulberry silk, or wool, and duvet covers and sheeting in bamboo, TENCEL™ modal, TENCEL™ lyocell, or organic cotton.
Be allergy aware
Spring is just around the corner, which means allergy season is not far behind. Whether or not your allergies are seasonal or stick with you year-round, wrapping up in hypoallergenic bedding will help you sleep more soundly throughout the night. Silk is a luxurious, naturally hypoallergenic protein fiber, and a great bedding choice for those who suffer from allergies - it can be found in duvets, pillows, mattress and pillow protectors, and pillowcases.
Lighten up with layers
Quilts, coverlets and blankets are lighter and less bulky than duvets, making them the perfect choice for light-weight layers. Coverlets and throws are a great way to add a pop of colour and style to a bedroom, and layering light and breathable cotton quilt sets makes it easy to adjust temperatures as seasons transition from winter to summer.
Reduce stress and anxiety with a weighted blanket
If you’re having trouble sleeping, or struggle to relax due to stress or anxiety, a weighted blanket might be the key to a calm, deep sleep. Weighted blankets apply a soothing pressure to the body similar to being hugged, which can help promote a sense of calm and relaxation - and, they’ve been scientifically proven to promote the production of serotonin and melatonin (the hormones that are good for sleep and relaxation), while reducing the hormones associated with stress and anxiety.
Make your bedroom your sanctuary
Your bedroom is your sanctuary, and your bed is its centerpiece. Having a bed with a feel and aesthetic that reflects you and your own personal style not only looks good it can also offer a calming effect to help you wind down at night. Mix colours, add textures, and play with designs and accents to craft a sanctuary that reflects YOU and brings comfort to your soul.
Bedding for you and fur your fur-family
If you’re a pet owner who loves snuggling up under the covers with your fur babies, consider bedding that works for you and your fur family. Bamboo charcoal bedding (such as our Bamboo sheeting with Activated Charcoal) is well known for its purification and deodorization properties, and can help reduce pet-related odours.
