Here at Mattress Next Day, we take sleep seriously. That’s why we endeavour to provide an incredibly broad range of top-quality mattresses that can meet our customers’ diverse needs. However, a good mattress isn’t the only accoutrement you need to get a great night’s sleep. There are several bedtime accessories that can really help you doze off and sleep comfortably. In fact, we recommend keeping the following three items within easy reach when you go to bed. You might be surprised by how well they can help you sleep.
1. A good book
Reading can help soothe your mind: it therefore enables you get to sleep easily. We suggest that you always keep a book by your bed so that you have something to read if you have difficulties dozing off. Of course, reading before bed can also nurture your intellect and expand your vocabulary: a goodnight’s sleep isn’t the only benefit of keeping a book close by at bedtime.
2. A glass of water
It’s often a good idea to keep a glass of water within reach of your bed. It’s very common for people to wake up during the night feeling thirsty or dry-throated. If this happens to you, you will probably want to fetch a drink. Unfortunately, getting out of bed to pour one can cause you to wake up fully, thereby making it difficult for you to get back to sleep. Simply putting a glass of water on your bedside table before going to sleep can obviate the need to get out of bed and therefore solve this problem.
3. A hot water bottle
A hot water bottle isn’t necessary on warm nights, of course. However, it can really help you get comfortable and drift off to sleep during cold snaps. We suggest taking one to bed most nights, in case the weather turns cold. You can leave it within arm’s reach and simply grab it if you need it.
Getting a good night’s sleep is important, but it isn’t always easy. We believe our top-notch mattresses can help, but it’s also worth investing in the items on this list.
