Tips for Better Sleep
Everyone knows how much of a battle it is working the next day without a solid 8 hours of sleep under your belt. You may have tried taking a warm shower before bed or even tried reading a book, but if you don’t have a nice, relaxing bedroom environment around you, you are going to struggle.
Below are some useful tips we have put together to ensure you get the best zzz’s ever!
You may have heard it all before, but turning your phone off seriously works. When it gets dark, your pineal gland secretes the hormone melatonin, which tells your body to get tired and go to sleep. But blue light, whether from the sun or a laptop, is very effective at inhibiting melatonin production — thus reducing both the quantity and quality of your sleep
Spend 30 mins before bed not looking at that bright screen of yours and your brain will automatically begin to relax and prepare itself for a good night’s rest. Give it a shot!
Your body heat peaks in the evening and then drops to its lowest levels when you're asleep, so a temperate 16-18°C is thought to be an ideal temperature in the bedroom, while a cold room of about 12°C will make it difficult to drop off.
If you are in a particularly cold climate, you might find that you are sometimes too uncomfortable to be able to get a good night’s sleep. But don’t fear- we have a large range of column heater options which provide fast, energy efficient heating which will help keep you nice and cosy before getting into bed!
What’s cooler than being cool?
On the flipside, many Australians struggle with being too hot to sleep due to being in arid climates or in the high summer seasons. Dimplex have a proven track record when it comes to cooling, with many cooling options for your bedroom with our split systems, window boxes and portable air conditioners. And for a product that will get you through all seasons, our DC Inverter Split System Air Conditioner is the way to go, providing both cooling AND heating options for all 365 days of the year.
Breathe it in!
Is your room stuffy? Do you or your partner struggle with allergies? It can be a real pain trying to catch some Z’s with sniffling and coughing going on. That’s where using a dehumidifier is the perfect option. Our range of Dehumidifiers and Evaporative Coolers are the perfect solution for reducing dust, spores, bacteria and pet fur flying around and are easily operated from the comfort of your bed with remote control included.
Your bedroom is not only your sanctuary, it’s your retreat from the world, and the one room where you spend most of your hours and with the current situation, there’s never been a better time to get your bedroom and home sorted to ensure you have a good sleep and therefore a great mindset for the day ahead.
All in all, warm or cold, whatever you need… we’ve got you. Happy snoozing!
