Spring into Better Sleep: Tips and Tricks for a Restful Season

04 April 2023

Ah, spring is here! Listen up, sleepyheads! Spring has sprung, the birds are singing their little hearts out, and those pretty flowers are popping up everywhere. And you know what that means, right? It's snooze o'clock! Don't let the excitement of the season keep you up all night long. You deserve some quality shuteye, my friend. And I'm here to help you doze off with a dose of humor and a dash of fun. So buckle up and get ready for some rib-tickling tips on how to catch those Zzz's this spring!

First things first - let's talk about your sleeping situation. Are you still using the same old mattress from the 90s? It might be time to upgrade, my friend. Your bed should be comfortable and supportive, just like your best friend after a breakup. So, invest in a quality mattress and pillows to ensure that you're snoozing soundly.

Now, let's address the elephant in the room - electronics. We all love scrolling through TikTok before bed, but did you know that the blue light emitted from our screens can mess with our circadian rhythm? That's fancy talk for the internal clock that controls our sleep-wake cycle. So, it's best to avoid electronics for at least an hour before bed. I know, I know - it's tough. But trust me, your sleep will thank you.

Alright, let's get real about bedtime attire. Are you still clinging on to that ratty old t-shirt from your gym class days? Sweetie, it's time to up your pajama game. Treat yourself to some snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug jammies or a flirty nightie that makes you feel like royalty. And let's be clear: socks are a no-go in the bedroom. Free those tootsies and let them groove and wiggle as they, please. Trust us, your feet will thank you for the liberation!

Okay, so we've got the bed, electronics, and sleepwear covered. Now, let's talk about the ambiance of your sleep space. Do you have blackout curtains to keep out the early morning light? What about a white noise machine to drown out any outside noise? These little additions can make a big difference in the quality of your sleep. Plus, who doesn't love pretending they're in a fancy hotel room?

Now, let's set the mood with some sweet scents. Lavender is the queen of calm, so why not light up some lavender-scented candles or diffuse some lavender essential oils to help you drift off to dreamland? Feeling like spicing things up? Give chamomile or vanilla a try! But hold up, don't get too crazy with the scents. Avoid anything too invigorating, like peppermint or citrus, unless you're planning on pulling an all-nighter.

Now, I know what you're thinking - "But FlexiSpot, I've got a million things on my mind and I can't seem to shut them off at night!" Fear not, my sleep-deprived friend. Here's where the fun comes in. Try out some relaxation techniques like meditation, yoga, or even coloring. Yes, coloring! You're never too old to break out the Crayolas and let your inner child run wild. Plus, it's a great way to clear your mind before bed.

Last but not least, let's talk about the one thing we all love - food! Did you know that your munchies can mess with your slumber? Yup, it's true! If you want to avoid indigestion and falling asleep like a sack of potatoes, steer clear of heavy, spicy, or greasy foods before hitting the hay. Instead, snack on light and easy treats like a banana or a bowl of cereal. And don't forget, cut off the caffeine and alcohol flow before bedtime. Sorry party peeps, that glass of vino might make you feel like a snooze fest, but it can actually mess with your sleep rhythm.

Well, folks, there you have it - our ultimate guide to snoozeville success this spring. Don't forget, catching those Zzz's isn't just for looks. Your body and mind need it, so don't cheat yourself. Follow these tips and you'll be counting sheep like a pro in no time, leading to a brighter and happier tomorrow.

And, if all else fails, just remember what Ralph Wiggum of The Simpsons once said, "Sleep, that's where I'm a Viking!" So, channel your inner Viking, grab your favorite pillow, and sail off into the land of nod. May your dreams be sweet, your snores be soft, and your mornings be bright and cheerful!

Adjustable Bed Base EB011

This device claims to provide the best luxury sleep ever, but you may also use it if you're reading or watching TV and still can't fall asleep. If you plan to work in bed, you can utilize it as well.

How is that even doable? This bed base is adjustable, so it may be made to fit a specific person's body's needs. With a head adjustment range of 0 to 60 degrees, you may comfortably read, watch TV, or go to bed. Select from the three leg options of 3, 6, or 9 to raise or lower the bed for greater comfort. Up to 25 cubic feet of storage are available under the bed.

Without a new bed, this may still be put to use. It can be used as a stand-alone support system or fitted into a bed frame of conventional size. The bed frame can be adjusted to a comfortable sleeping position using the connected remote control that is included. It has a long-lasting, whisper-quiet motor that produces a maximum push of 6000N (600 kg) with a sound level of under 50 dB for a peaceful slumber. It has a mattress retainer bar to keep you and the mattress from falling off the frame out of safety.
