Getting a good night’s sleep is incredibly important for your physical and mental health. On an average, a healthy adult requires between 7 and 9 hours of sleep per night. Sleep deprivation can increase the risk of weight gain, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease and Type 2 diabetes. However, a good night’s sleep is elusive for many people, especially those who live in big cities. As one of the leading noise cancelling windows manufacturers, we share with you a few useful tips to get a good night’s sleep:
Install noise cancelling windows: Noise has a major impact on sleep. In cities, it is common to hear sounds of traffic, dogs barking or excessive noise from pubs and clubs at night. Exposure to too much noise can lead to fragmented sleep. This can make you feel less refreshed the next day. Poor-quality sleep over a long period of time due to noise can lead to many serious health conditions. If you have been struggling to sleep at night because of outdoor noises, installing soundproof windows can help you. The soundproof windows’ cost depends on the quality of glass, frame material and accessories.

Choose a comfortable mattress: When it comes to sleep, the right mattress plays a huge role in ensuring that you sleep well. A mattress that fails to provide enough support and comfort will affect the quality of your sleep. To find the best mattress, you need to ensure that it has the right firmness and features to meet your sleep needs. Here are a few things to consider:
Materials: Mattresses come in three main types: foam, innerspring and hybrid.
Firmness: Mattress firmness describes how a mattress feels under your body. Firmness ranges on a scale from 1 to 10, with a 10 being the firmest bed you can find.
Support: People with lower body weight often prefer a foam mattress as it gives good support. But people with higher body weight may prefer the added sturdiness of coils underneath foam.
Specific problems: These days, there are many mattresses available that support the neck, spine, and lower back.
Use a supportive pillow: Pillows with poor support can lead to pain and discomfort around the neck at night. This can lead to poor quality of sleep. A good pillow should support the head, neck and shoulders. These days, many pillows are labelled for specific sleep positions. For instance, there are specific pillows for side sleepers and stomach sleepers.
Create a restful environment: For a good night’s sleep, it’s important that your room is calming. Dim the light in the night to get ready for sleep. Avoid using electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets that emit blue light at least 2 to 3 hours before bedtime. Use blockout window curtains to keep the light from the streets out.
Stick to a sleep schedule: Go to bed and get up at the same time – as it helps the body understand your sleep pattern and get used to it. Also, doing relaxing activities such as taking a bath or reading before hitting the bed can help you sleep better.
