- Happy sleeping day everyone!
- Need help to sleep?
- Mattresses that would defeat any baby rocking chairs.
Did you guys know that last Friday, 18th March was World Sleep Day. Yeah, I know I’m late and to be honest, I was celebrating and overslept that day, thus, I couldn’t finish this article on time. And since the next following days were the weekend, I decided to continue celebrating.
In case you didn’t know about this celebration, let me give you a short brief. World Sleep Day is the day where we celebrate sleeping and take the initiative of understanding the importance of good quality sleep. The whole purpose of this day is to bring awareness of preventing and managing society’s problems with sleeping disorders.

Ah Boy! Go to Sleep Now!
It is common knowledge that sleeping for 7 to 9 hours is essential to maintain a healthy lifestyle. For example, getting a good night’s rest will help you maintain or lose weight, so you don’t have to religiously do that keto diet. Plus, it helps improve your productivity and protect your immune system.
Who knew that we could prevent Covid-19 by doing nothing. Hey, are you actually getting enough sleep? Be honest cause even I’m guilty of it. Well, if you have insomnia like me, thankfully, here are some useful tips to help us go to bed.
How to Sleep Soundly:
The first tip is to live like a plant. What you must do is be surrounded by light during the day and get less exposure to light during nighttime. Our body has mechanisms that identify when it is day and night, and it schedules our slumber time based on light exposure. Although it’s scary to stay in the dark for a few hours, just give it a try!
I think we both know that consuming caffeine very late in the day will disturb your beauty sleep. As much as that cappuccino is the best to-go drink, we have to give it up for the greater good. Late-night Maggi is also a big NO. Eating late at night would disturb your sleep hormones. Plus, you don’t want to wake up looking bloated, right?

The last tip: please do yourself a favour and get good quality mattresses. I admit that everyone’s definition of comfort is different, but a few ways could help you distinguish what is the best mattress for you.
There are three types of sleeping positions, and usually, there would be one specific position that we would choose by default. So which one are you; the back, side or stomach sleeper? Knowing this is important because it can help narrow down your options.

Sleep enthusiasts have made a firm scale of a mattress, and you might have seen this scale while window shopping before. Not sure which one to choose? If you are a side sleeper like me, the ideal scales would be between 3-6, while 4-7 would be nice for does who lay on their back.
For those who lay on their stomach, 5-7 is the perfect scale. If you don’t know exactly what type of sleeper you are because whenever you wake you, you’ll be in the weirdest positions, then I suggest scales between 5-6 is just right.
You are probably indecisive about which brands you should get, right? I mean there are probably thousands of options that you could choose from. Fear not, because down below, I have listed a few wonderful mattress brands that will help you sleep like a baby.
