Sleep is essential to your health and it is often an area where people struggle. In order to get better sleep, you need to change the conditions of how you’re sleeping. What you wear to bed can help you to improve your overall sleep.
An Eye Mask
When you sleep, it’s ideal for you to be in complete darkness. Any kind of light can stimulate your body and keep you from falling asleep or staying asleep. Wearing an eye mask can help to block out all light while you sleep. Aside from keeping your circadian rhythm on track, darkness can also help to “quiet” the sounds in your mind. It can signal to your body that it’s time to sleep and you may have your stresses and worries eased. Eye masks are fairly cheap and there are different kinds you can try to fit your needs and comfort levels.
Many people have a tendency to grind their teeth while they sleep. This causes damage to the teeth, but it also creates unnecessary tension while you’re sleeping. A mouthguard keeps you from grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw. You can be more relaxed while you sleep. Mouthguards can even help to prevent snoring and they are a great way to prevent tooth damage, plaque buildup, and more. If you use a mouthguard, you need to keep up with maintenance. A mouthguard should be cleaned daily and weekly. Doing so will make sure there is no buildup of bacteria.
Again, the conditions of the room you’re sleeping in will have a major impact on your sleep quality. In addition to being dark, you also want it to be quiet. It may be difficult to always have quiet conditions while you’re sleeping. The best remedy is to always wear earplugs. Earplugs will allow you to block out sound, so you can have silence while you sleep. Even a little noise can pull you from a deep sleep and this disrupts the quality of sleep you get each night. Earplugs can block out the sounds of someone snoring next to you, noises elsewhere in the home, or even the sounds of traffic outside.
You want to make sure you are getting the best sleep possible. While you may not have control over every condition, you can control the things you wear to bed. These items can make you more comfortable and provide you with a better night’s sleep.
