Tips to Help You Sleep Better While Sick

We have been preaching here on our blog that the right amount of sleep, for anyone, can help you avoid various illnesses and ailments that can set in from lack of and poor sleeping habits. Getting enough sleep during cold and flu season can even help you avoid catching something and help you get over it faster. But, as we all know, it is immensely difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep when you’re hacking, coughing, sneezing, and dealing with a runny nose.

We have put together a list of some tips that may be able to provide some relief and alleviate some of the symptoms so you can get the much needed rest and be on your way to recovery.

Be Cautious of Cold Medication

Our first instinct when we are sick is to head over to the pharmacy and pick up something that will help. However, everyone reacts to nighttime medications differently. Furthermore, the cold medication the decongestant, pseudoephedrine, may even have adverse affects and end up keeping you up instead of sedating you. You might experience jitters, anxiety or an increased heart rate according to WebMD. Always consult your physician before resulting to medication. They will always have the best solution for you.

Elevate Your Head

Everyone has experienced the annoyance of being sick, having a stuffy or runny nose and trying to sleep. Your ears get clogged. Your feel yourself choking on that post-nasal drip. You have severe sinus pressure and congestion. What’s the answer? Well, propping your head up can help alleviate all of these problems. It lets gravity take over and pull all the junk out of your ears and ease the pressure in your sinus cavities. You’ll be able to breathe easier than if you’re lying down flat.

Take a Steamy Shower or Bath

When you take a hot shower or bath your body temperature rises and fter you get out of the steamy shower, your body’s temperature drops and helps get it ready for sleep.

Also, the steam in the shower offers slight benefits and relief to cold symptoms. The moisture in the air can help loosen congestion in your nose and chest and help you breathe easier. Also, a humidifier can help with relief as well.

Drink Tea

“Sleepy Time” teas such as Chamomille and Passionflower have natural sleep aids that will help you fall asleep. Plus, you will be drinking liquid that will help you keep you hydrated which is crucial in the recovery process. They also help soothe a sore throat which can keep you tossing and turning.

Physical and Mental Benefits of Sleep

We do it, or should be doing it, each night, but why? Why is it important? Why do we need it? Sleep. It plays such a vital role in our health and well-being and often times we overlook its importance and skip or shorten the time we should be resting.

The way we feel, mental and physical, is directly associated with getting enough sleep each night. Getting enough sleep each night can help protect your physical and mental health, quality of life and safety.

When you don’t receive enough sleep, it is called “Sleep Deficiency” and its effects can be felt at any point. Whether it be something instantaneous, such as a car crash, or felt over time, such as a chronic health problem, trouble thinking, interacting with others, learning ability or reaction time.

Healthy Brain Function and Emotional Well-Being

One of the most important benefits of sleep is healthy brain function and your emotional well-being. While you are sleeping, your brain is recharging, preparing for the next time you are awake and is working on forming new paths to help you learn and remember information.

There have been numerous studies that show a proper night’s sleep improves learning capacity, problem solving skills, helps you pay attention, make decisions and even be more creative. Have you ever woken up from a nap or a night’s sleep with a great idea?

Physical Health

Sleep also plays a large role in your overall physical health. It is involved in the healing and repair of your heart, blood vessels and muscles. Sleep deficiency puts you at an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and stroke.

Obesity is another risk of sleep deficiency. Sleep regulates and maintains a healthy balance of hormones that give the sensations of hunger or being full. When you don’t sleep you feel more hungry and this might cause you to overeat increasing your weight gain and eventually cause obesity.

Sleep also regulates how your body reacts to insulin, the hormone that controls your blood glucose level. When you don’t sleep it can cause a higher blood sugar level which can put you at risk for diabetes.

A healthy immune system is aided by the gain of proper, restful sleep. Sleep deficiency can change the way your immune system reacts and in some cases you may find yourself having trouble fighting common infections.

Daytime Performance and Safety

Quality sleep each night aids your daily function throughout the day. Not sleeping can cause you to become less productive at school, work and home. You take longer to finish tasks, make more mistakes, have trouble processing, and have slower reaction times.

Studies have shown that losing 1 to 2 hours of sleep each night, your ability to function suffers as if you haven’t slept for at all for a day and can lead to microsleep. Microsleep are brief moments of sleep that occur when you are normally awake and you may not even be aware of it.

Drowsy driving has been documented as being as bad if not worse than drunk driving. It has been estimated that nearly 100,000 car accidents each year that result in nearly 1,500 deaths are caused by drowsy driving.

Sleep deficiencies have been linked to depression, suicide and risk-taking behavior. Furthermore, children who are sleep deficient have shown problems getting along with others, anger outbursts, impulsive behavior, mood swings, depression, lack of motivation and have trouble paying attention in school or to their parents.

These are all very serious problems that you can reduce your risk of simply by sleeping the proper amount each night. The dangers are real and imminent and should be take seriously.

Tips To Reduce Affects of Daylight Savings Time

The “Fall Back” Daylight Savings Time is fast approaching, begins at 2:00 a.m. on November 4th, and it is a change that impacts millions of Americans each year.

The time change causes a “fall back” of an hour.

This is a change that can disrupt sleeping patterns and cause fatigue.

Our dedicated team at Mattresses for Less have done a little digging and found some tips to help reduce the impact Daylight Savings Time has on your sleeping schedule.

Keep your sleeping area dark

The change in time can disrupt sleep, especially if you are used to waking when it is still dark outside. Try to make sure you always keep the area in which you sleep as dark as possible to encourage sound sleep.

Increase exposure to light after waking

Exposing yourself to light after waking can have an alerting affect. Try opening the shades in your room after waking to let natural light in or turning on the lights.
