Sleep anxiety is a type of anxiety disorder that involves excessive worry or fear about sleeping. People with sleep anxiety may have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, or they may feel excessively tired during the day due to poor sleep quality.
One way to help reduce sleep anxiety is to create a comfortable and relaxing sleep environment. This includes choosing the right bedding, as well as ensuring that the bedroom is quiet, cool, and dark.
Here are a few tips for choosing bedding that can help reduce sleep anxiety.
Choose a comfortable and supportive mattress
A mattress that is too soft or too hard can cause discomfort and disrupt sleep. It's important to choose a mattress that provides the right level of support and comfort for your body. At the same time, make sure to use a mattress protector, to protect your mattress from all kinds of germs and dirt. A mattress topper too provides your mattress (and you) with extra support so you can get a peaceful sleep.
Opt for high-quality bedding materials
Natural materials like cotton sheets are breathable and lightweight, which can improve sleep quality. If you're looking for something that will keep you cool and relaxed during the summer months, then our Tencel sheets are just what you need. These sheets have temperature regulating properties so that you can have a cool sleep all night long.
Use a weighted blanket
Weighted blankets have been shown to help reduce anxiety and improve sleep quality. The weight of the blanket provides a soothing, calming sensation that can help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer.
Choose a comfortable and suitable pillow
The right pillow insert can help support the neck and spine, reducing discomfort and improving sleep quality. Wrap these pillows in our pillowcases so that you can lay your head on the softest surface to get a good night’s rest. Consider choosing a pillow made of natural materials and that is the right height and firmness for your sleep position.
Use a white noise machine or earplugs
External noise can disrupt sleep and contribute to sleep anxiety. Using a white noise machine or earplugs can help block out noise and create a more peaceful and relaxing sleep environment.
Practice a proper sleep routine
Establishing a consistent bedtime routine, turning off screens an hour before bed, and creating a cool, dark, and quiet sleep environment can all help reduce sleep anxiety and improve sleep quality.
Overall, the right bedding and a relaxing sleep environment is of utmost importance in order to avoid sleep anxiety.
