5 Tips to Get the Best Nights Rest
There is nothing we hate more than feeling tired. We feel crabby, worn out, and can’t help but daydream about the comfort of our beds. Sound familiar? As a #GirlBoss, you might be thinking that a full 8-hours is a thing of the past, but no business professional can operate at full potential if they aren’t fully rested. So, if sleep is one the few things you can control, why are you letting it control you?
Although there are many outside factors that may interfere with your sleep — pets, children, noises, etc. — it is important to adopt healthy sleeping habits to counteract the ones you can’t control, and the best place to start is with your mattress. In fact, our Simply Stylist Founder Sarah Boyd is well-aware of the importance of sleep, which is why she recently teamed up with the experts at PangeaBed and purchased a PangeaBed Copper Mattress! PangeaBed is a next generation bed-in-a-box mattress company. Originating in New York, PangeaBed was created to provide consumers with the best night’s sleep they’ll ever receive — and the fact that it ships right to your door (at no cost!) is just icing on the cake! Not only are their luxurious mattresses made with the highest quality materials on the market, but a supportive, breathable PangeaBed mattress is the answer to your #GirlBoss insomnia.
Stress at the office shouldn’t affect your sleep cycle, and PangeaBed is here to help! We sat down with our friends at PangeaBed to discover exactly what needs to be done to get the best night’s rest. Here’s what they had to say:
1. Eat Smart: Contrary to popular belief, some people actually do well eating a little later at night. Now, this doesn’t mean eating a bag of cookies at 10pm is the way to go, though. If you work out in the morning, for example, eating a healthy dose of apples with peanut butter or cheese and crackers is a perfect bedtime snack.
2. Exercise: Regular exercise helps you sleep better at night, but avoid doing vigorous exercise right before bed (that burst of energy that comes right after a hard work out will keep you up!) If you work out in the evening, give yourself at least 2 hours before heading to bed.
