During the working week the average bedtime for adults in Britain is 10.43pm. Most of us know that getting a good night’s sleep is important, but too few of us actually make those eight or so hours between the sheets a priority. Though research cannot pinpoint an exact amount of sleep need by people at different ages, nevertheless it’s important to pay attention to your own individual needs by assessing how you feel on different amounts of sleep. Teenagers (14-17): Sleep range widened by one hour to 8-10 hours (previously it was 8.5-9.5) Younger adults (18-25): Sleep range is 7-9 hours (new age category) Adults (26-64): Sleep range did not change and remains 7-9 hours Older adults (65+): Sleep range is 7-8 hours (new age category)
As these are guidelines and everyone sleeps differently, so pay careful attention to your mood, energy and health after a poor night’s sleep versus a good one. Ask yourself, “How often do I get a good night’s sleep?” For example if you take the bottom end of the guidelines and sleep for 7 hours your body may need more rest than this and you may perform better with 8/9 hours. Once you find your sweet spot KEEP CONSISTENT, Pick a bedtime and a wake-up time and stick to them as much as possible. Life will inevitably interfere, but try not to sleep in for more than an hour or two, tops, on Saturdays and Sundays so that you can stay on track. That way, your body’s internal clock will get accustomed to a new bedtime, which will help you fall asleep better at night and wake up more easily each morning.
The nation’s addiction to technology like smartphones and tablet computers is the main reason most Brits admit they don’t get enough sleep. Half of those polled – exactly 50% – admit the last thing they put down before finally turning out the light is a computer or smartphone. Sufficient sleep is as crucial for good health as diet and exercise. What you might not realize, however, is that your bedding could be impacting how you are sleeping at night. Without adequate rest, sleeping problems can affect mood, lower learning and memory performance, and can have adverse impacts on overall health, energy levels, and weight. The following are some of the signs that your bedding could be having an adverse effect on your sleep.
You Are Too Hot
If you are prone to night sweats, experience hot flashes as a side effect of menopause, or simply find yourself uncomfortably warm during the night, your bedding is likely the cause. Periods of overheating while you sleep can have you waking up in a sweat multiple times, disrupting your sleep cycle and making it difficult to get comfortable and get back to sleep. If you find that you are struggling with getting to sleep because you are too hot, then we have created a collection with regards to this common problem. Click Here
You Are Too Cold
Similarly, if you find yourself too cold at night, your bedding may be to blame. It can be difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep if you are left shivering. Though you may try to layer on more blankets to achieve a comfortable temperature, you could find yourself becoming overly hot later on. Silk bedding products have the unique ability to keep you at the perfect temperature all night long. Here at the Linen Cupboard we also have a special range called BESPOKE HIGH PERFORMANCE BEDLINEN, The unique wicking fabric provides relief for overheating at night whilst offering soft comfort of the very highest standard, it's not too hot or too cold!
