For much of the U.S., March signals the end of winter, the beginning of the warm weather… and the start of Sleep Awareness Month. An ideal time to think about your sleep quality and quantity, Sleep Awareness Month can be a call to action. If you regularly find yourself struggling to drift off in the evening or waking up in the middle of the night, you might be among the 10 percent of adults worldwide with some degree of insomnia. At Pure Parima, we understand that lack of sleep can be associated with a wide array of negative health effects, including high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and depression. With that in mind, we go above and beyond to provide the bedding products you need to get more rest. Keep reading to learn more about sleep hygiene and discover how Egyptian cotton sheets can help you feel revitalized.
Tips for Sleeping Better
Tossing and turning when you should be resting easy? The problem might be that your current evening routine is lacking. Here are some of Pure Parima’s top tips for getting more sleep:
Stick to a Schedule
Do you go to bed at the same time every night? Or do you make the mistake of letting the evening’s events dictate your schedule? If you’re the kind of person who struggles with sleep, experts recommend making an effort to go to bed at the same time every night and wake up at the same time every morning. This is especially crucial for people who follow a different schedule on weekdays and weekends. For best results, shoot for seven to nine hours of sleep a night and avoid napping to make up the difference. You may also want to refrain from consuming caffeine, alcohol, or other stimulants if you struggle with sleep.
Turn Down the Temperature
If you’ve ever woken up in a pool of sweaty sheets, then you might be what’s considered a hot sleeper. Common among individuals who reside in warm climates, this issue can lead to a great deal of discomfort and prevent people from getting sufficient rest. For best results, we recommend turning the thermostat down to between 60 and 67 degrees at night. You can stay dry by choosing better bedding as well. Featuring extra-long staple fibers picked by hand in the Nile River Valley, Egyptian cotton has a smooth, ultra-fine, porous texture that allows heat and moisture to pass through. Percale is especially valuable for hot sleepers, as the one-over-one-under weave is known for its cooling quality.
It’s also wise to keep the lights off and avoid looking at bright devices such as phones or tablets while trying to fall asleep. Still feeling warm? A fan pointed at the bed can help keep you cool on hot summer nights.
Choose Better Bedding
It’s hard to sleep well if your sheets are rough, scratchy, or prone to pilling and tearing. Fortunately, Egyptian cotton bedding has a buttery soft texture that invites you to stretch out and relax. Mimicking the feeling of silk, Egyptian cotton actually gets softer every time you wash it. The result is you never have to worry about waking up with rashes or irritation.
Best Egyptian Cotton Sheets for Sleep
One of the most common causes of insomnia is actually one of the easiest to correct. If your bedding isn’t soft, breathable, and comfortably cool, you might find yourself tossing and turning when you’re trying to get sufficient rest. Here are two of the most popular sheet sets at Pure Parima, along with tips on selecting the best one for your needs.
