Dream a little dream ~ It’s like sleeping on a cloud

This is something that my husband and I have said to each other on more than one occasion over the week since I fitted a mattress topper to our bed. I added the extra layer after starting a month-long sleep challenge to see if I could improve the quality of my sleep during November. We’ve already fitted blackout blinds, which were a huge success because they solved my condensation issue too and now I’ve put the mattress topper on the bed ready for a cosy week.

I was concerned that it would bunch-up underneath the fitted sheet and would pop-off the mattress after a night of sleeping on it. But I’m pleased to report that it was actually great to sleep on. The topped stayed in place every night and the straps didn’t pop off once! Most impressive was the feeling of sinking into a cloud when I first climbed into bed. And this feeling surprised me every time that I got into bed – so cosy – so soft. I love it. My mattress seems rubbish in comparison!

As you can see from my photos – my cat loves it too! Here are some more tips for getting a good night sleep from Dunelm that I’ll be trying to stick to during the sleep challenge:

  1. Eat breakfast within an hour of waking up every day, it helps to reset your body clock (I already do this because I wake up hungry every morning!)
  2. Avoiding digital screens (e.g. TV, computer, tablet, phone) within an hour of going to bed could help you get to sleep, these gadgets are proven to restrict your melatonin production, the hormone that makes you sleepy. (I’m not sure I’ll be able to do this, but I’ll try to put down my devices earlier than usual and make a habit of spending time reading and winding-down before bed)
  3. Avoid eating a big meal late in the evening. Too much food or alcohol late at night can disrupt your sleep patterns (I eat rather early – as soon as I stop work really – and then I’m hungry again before bed, so I’ll try to eat my main meal a little later and stop myself from snacking too close to bedtime).
  4. Practice breathing through your nose, rather than your mouth. It reduces snoring and allows you to take deeper breaths

And all this focussing on my bedroom has got me thinking about the decor and what I’d like to do to ‘makeover’ our bedroom – so watch this space!
