How to get a good night sleep

It goes without saying how important it is to our bodies to get enough night sleep. We have all suffered a day´s working after not having slept properly the night before, it´s torture. Sleeping is considered just as important as exercises or doing a healthy diet. In fact, experts always recommend to sleep at least 7 hours a day if you are trying to get into your ideal weight.  It is safe to say that sleeping is an extremely important aspect of a healthy lifestyle and that why today we are going to give you some tips on how to make sure you are getting you goodnight sleep.

Researches have discovered that poor night sleep is directly linked with brain performance and function, as well as increasing risk of suffering diseases. On the other hand, getting enough hours-sleep help you stay more active, gain less weight and exercise better.

One of the most important things to consider when thinking about sleep is our circadian rhythms, this is to put it simply, the way our organisms set a routine by which we feel sleepy at night and we wake up in the morning, trying to keep this routine as stable as possible is paramount. This is why experts recommend to get as much natural light exposure as possible during the day and as little when the sun comes down, this helps our bodies set a natural “alarm” which helps us rest as well as possible.

In addition to this, naps can also lead to disorders on our night sleep, although sleeping 20 to 30-minute naps is recommended, exceeding this time or taking naps at different times of the day can also cause distortions on our sleeping pattern.

Another key aspect is to try and keep our bedrooms clean and organised, research has proven this to be of extreme importance when setting up a healthy sleeping routine. This is easily achieved by using Orliman´s Sitlive products. These anatomic pillows are produced with the best breathable materials to ensure perfect temperature and comfort for our night sleep.
