Better Sleep With Tempur Pedic Neck Pillow in Tallahassee

 There is no better feeling than waking up in the morning feeling well-rested, energized, and ready to take on the day to come. For some, good sleep comes naturally. A lot of adults, however, have difficulty falling—and staying—asleep at night. Why is that? What are some easy ways to ensure you get a good night’s sleep every night?

 There are two different types of sleep: REM sleep and non-REM sleep. REM sleep refers to “rapid eye movement” sleep. This is the stage of sleep that occurs about an hour and a half after you fall asleep. Most dreaming takes place in REM-sleep, though you may not remember most dreams.

 The amount of sleep needed per night varies by age. It’s recommended that adults get 7-9 hours of sleep each night. Babies can sleep upwards of 18 hours a day, while teenagers need about 9-10 hours of sleep, and older adults can function off less than 7 hours of sleep.

 For those who struggle getting the good night’s sleep they need, here are some easy tips…

DO’s:

  • Stick to a schedule! (Yes, that means on the weekends, too)

  • Create a relaxing night-time ritual

  • Only use your bed for sleeping

  • Make sure your room is dark, quiet, and cool

  • Keep a sleep diary if you find yourself having difficulties falling/staying asleep

DON’Ts

  • Avoid naps during the afternoon if you have trouble falling asleep

  • Avoid eating right before bed

  • Avoid using technology and bright lights before bedtime

  • Don’t just lie awake in bed; go into another room and do something relaxing until you’re tired

 Make sure that you’re sleeping on a comfortable mattress and are using supportive pillows. You should never have to bunch up a pillow to get the right amount of support! Tempur-Pedic pillows are great in supporting your head and neck while you sleep. The S-curve design of the Tempur-Neck pillow allows the neck to remain in a neutral position while you sleep and is made to fit your shoulder dimensions.
