The Matelas Bonheur 30-Day Better Sleep Challenge (Part 1)
Statistics regarding the sleeping habits of Canadians reveal a large number of us are suffering the consequences of poor quality sleep or lack a sleep all together. Because the benefits of good sleep are so important, we’ve decided to put together – in the form of a challenge – 30 tips to improve your sleep.
Are you ready to take on these daily challenges? Here is the first part half of the Matelas Bonheur 30-Day Better Sleep Challenge.
Take your cellphone(s) out of the bedroom! If you need it to wake up, put it in a place where it’s out of reach but you can still hear it.
Determine your ideal bedtime and do your best to stay as close to it as possible.
No caffeine today after lunch! As an extra challenge, avoid alcohol as well, it’s an enemy of good sleep.
You know that book you’ve put off reading for so long? Get into bed 20 minutes earlier tonight so you can read a few pages before you fall asleep.
Ask yourself if your mattress, pillows, and sheets are working for you or if things could be improved.
On day 6, it’s time to aerate the bedroom! Get some fresh air circulating in there and try to make this a regular habit.
This morning, no hitting the “snooze” button. When your alarm goes off, up you get!
Try some aromatherapy. Not only is it good for sleeping, you can benefit from using them in a variety of ways.
How about washing your sheets and putting them in the dryer before you head to work in the morning? Once bedtime rolls around, you can enjoy fresh, clean sheets.
Plan the next day before you go to bed. Breakfast, clothes, things to do… get it all organized before the Sandman comes to visit.
Get moving today! Make a plan to get 30 minutes of exercise during the day… even a long walk in the fresh air will do.
Think positive! Before you go to bed tonight, think of 3 things for which you are grateful. It’s a great habit to get into.
Is your bedroom to your liking? Do you find it too cluttered? Write down some of your ideas about what you’d like to change and give yourself a realistic timetable to make it happen. The goal? Create an environment that encourages a good night’s sleep.
Try downloading a sleeping-aid app. You’ll see- some of them are really interesting!
The challenge of the day? Take a few minutes to make yourself a nice herbal tea.
We strongly encourage you to take part in this challenge and see for yourself how important it is to take care of your sleep!
