6 Signs You Need Better Sleep & How iGel Beds Can Help

Are you having difficulty sleeping? Do you think that your mattress may be one of the culprits holding you back from getting the quality sleep you deserve? Here are six signs that you need a better night's rest and how a high-quality mattress can help!

A good night's sleep is absolutely essential to being healthy and hapy. If you're having trouble getting the best sleep possible, there are some steps you can take to improve your situation. This includes: 

  • Sticking to a sleep schedule
  • Don’t go to bed stuffed or starving
  • Avoid napping during the day
  • Leave time for physical activity during the day
  • Use stress mitigation techniques

While all of these are excellent ways to improve your sleep, the most important of them all is your sleeping environment. Having a dark, quiet, cool, and comfortable room will do wonders for improving your sleep. If you find that you become too hot during the night or that your mattress is not pleasant, an IntelliBed® might be just what you need!

6 Signs That You Need a Better Sleep

1. Constant Drowsiness

By far, the most prominent sign that you are sleep deprived is that you are constantly drowsy. The feeling of drowsiness is entirely normal and healthy for all humans; it signals when we should be going to sleep. But if the desire to sleep is a constant presence, this could be a sign of sleep deprivation. If you feel that you could fall asleep anywhere and anytime, you need to improve your sleep or face the risk of developing chronic health issues.

2. Difficulty Falling Asleep

Once you have decided to go to bed, your body needs to know that it is time to sleep. If you find that you are tossing and turning for an extended period of time before falling asleep, it could be a sign that your sleep patterns are not satisfactory. Some reasons why you may be having a difficult time falling asleep at night include:

  • Sleep apnea
  • Insomnia
  • Inconsistent sleep schedule
  • Uncomfortable environment

Once you have set up a routine and environment conducive to a healthy slumber, falling asleep will become much easier, and you will be waking up more refreshed than ever. Learn more about the science behind the IntelliBed® by reading our article on the IntelliBed's® Gel Matrix™ technology and how it will help you fall asleep faster.

3. Your Diet is Inconsistent and You're Gaining Weight

For decades now, there have been numerous studies on the relationship between sleep deprivation and weight gain. The outcome of these studies is nearly unanimous; insufficient sleep has a strong correlation with weight gain.

When we feel over-tired, we tend to become stagnant and are more likely to choose easier alternatives. One of the most common examples of this is our diet, where we reach for more snacks and fast food instead of putting in the energy to cook healthy meals. Additionally, when we are more tired, we are less likely to exercise, leading to weight gain if paired with an unhealthy diet.

4. Getting Less than 7 Hours of Sleep Per Night

We’ve all heard the narrative that we need at least eight hours of sleep a night. While it is true that eight hours of sleep is the best for optimal body function, anything less than seven hours of sleep will not only make you feel drowsy but can also be detrimental to your health. When you sleep, your body is in a state of healing and rejuvenation. Without enough sleep, you could be putting your health at risk.

5. You Are Moody and Emotional

The connection between sleep and emotion is very strong and complex. Aside from the obvious connection that not enough sleep can leave you cranky, it can also be one of the causes of anxiety, depression, chronic insomnia, and many other mental health disorders. If you are looking to care for your mental health, one of the best methods to do so is with consistent, healthy rest.

6. Impaired Concentration and Productivity

The best example of the harm that lack of sleep can cause our concentration and productivity is to look at the rate of car crashes after daylight savings. In the week following daylight savings time, when we are all frustrated about not getting enough sleep, car crash rates tend to spike by about 10%. This is quite a stark example of the negative impact that even as little as an hour of missed sleep can have on our concentration. Similarly, businesses report millions of dollars of losses every year due to a lack of productivity in the week following daylight savings time.

How an iGel Bed Can Improve Your Sleep

Q: What is the best sleep position?

The best sleep position is whatever makes you the most comfortable, whether it be on your side, back, in the fetal position; it doesn't really matter, just as long as you are comfy. The only position that is not recommended is on your stomach, as this can lead to neck and lower back pain.

Q: Why am I tired, but I cannot sleep?

If you find that you are always sleepy during the day but are wide awake once you go to bed, it is likely that your circadian rhythm, also known as your sleep cycle, is off. The best way to reset your circadian rhythm is by creating the optimal scenario for sleeping. This means ensuring your environment is conducive to sleep, you have avoided caffeine and screen time, and have not had any naps during the day.

Q: How do I choose the right mattress for me?

The only surefire way to find the right mattress for you is to test them out. We offer a 120 day trial period where you can try out our IntelliBed® mattress. If it is not for you, we will take it back at no cost to you.
