Scentered has teamed up with Mellanni Fine Linens and sleep expert Dr. Holliday-Bell in honor of Sleep Awareness Week, which takes place from March 14th till 22nd. A healthy sleep pattern and a good night’s rest are crucial to fully function during our daily lives. Combining our expertise in sleeping and bedding, we will be discussing steps you can take to improve the quality of your sleep.
The importance of good sleeping quality
It doesn’t matter where you are in your life, sleep is important every day of your life. Whether you’re juggling a busy work schedule with your private life or you’re a full-time mom, a restless night will cause you to slow down throughout the day. No amount of coffee can live up to a full night of high-quality sleep. Not only does a lack of sleep have an effect on your mental state, but it also increases signs of aging and gives you dark under-eye circles. Not a great look, if you ask us. By increasing the amount but most importantly the quality of your sleep, you will highly increase your quality of life as well.
Improve your sleeping environment
An important factor that determines your quality of sleep is your sleeping environment. You will most likely sleep better in an environment that feels safe, has a good temperature and a bed that feels like you’re sleeping on pink clouds. Especially now that we’re bound to home a lot, it’s important to keep your bedroom the place where you sleep. Don’t spend all day laying in bed as it will harm your sleep during the night. In a bedroom, temperature plays a big part as getting too cold or too hot during the night impacts your night’s rest. The ideal temperature usually lies between 60 to 67 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on your personal preferences. Invest in a high-quality bed that supports your neck, shoulders and back and keeps your spine aligned. By turning around your topper regularly, you keep enjoying the benefits of a comfortable, supportive mattress.
Discover exceptional affordable bedding with Mellani
Your bedding is the most important decor decision you’ll make, but many people overlook the importance of choosing the right bedding to help them sleep soundly. The type of sheets you choose won’t just tie your bedroom together aesthetically; it can impact the quality of your sleep. Best of all you won’t need to spend a fortune to get high-quality sheets when you shop with Mellanni.
If you are a hot-sleeper or get sweaty at night, choose natural materials like cotton in a lightweight material, as it will help wick perspiration away from your skin while you sleep. Mellanni’s lightweight cotton Flannel Sheet Sets were named Best Flannel Sheets of 2020 by The National Sleep Foundation. Conversely, if you are a cold to regular sleeper microfiber bedding could be the perfect fit for all season comfort.
When it comes to getting your beauty sleep, what you sleep on is almost as important as how many hours you sleep. Mellanni’s 100% Mulberry Silk Pillowcases offer a smooth surface for your face to lie on. Silk pillowcases also help to lock moisture into the skin. This is beneficial for those that suffer from dry or irritated skin, and helps to keep those hydrating moisturizers and sleep masks in place while you sleep. And that moisture-wicking property also helps with hair hydration as well.
Scentered aromatherapy to sleep better
After a long day, it can be difficult to transition into a relaxing mood and slow down before it’s time to go to bed. We often lie awake during the night, worrying about our plans for the next day or struggling with personal problems. Your bed is a place where you should feel at peace and wander off to sleep quickly. Aromatherapy can be used to transition moods throughout the day, feeling focused during work hours and slowing down when it’s bedtime. Scentered’s SLEEP WELL Aromatherapy Balm is a 100% natural essential oil that uses a blend of Lavender, Chamomile, Palmarosa and Ho Wood to trigger the part of your brain that helps you to relax and wind down. Take a conscious moment of rest and deeply inhale the balm’s scent before bedtime. Slowly exhale and you will notice a feeling of calmness and relaxation perching over you.
