When it comes to living a healthy life, proper nutrition, physical activity, and adequate sleep are all important. And while the first two are taken very seriously, many people don’t get enough sleep each night. In fact, 40 percent of Americans get less than six hours of sleep per night. That’s up from 11 percent in 1942.
While insufficient sleep can be linked to any number of conscious choices, there are also a lot of uncontrollable factors at play. These include chronic pain, sleep disorders, and poor environmental factors.
If you’re someone who has trouble falling asleep and staying asleep, you may find the following six products life changing. Check them out!
1. Purple Mattress
For people with back pain, sleeping on a normal mattress can be painful and uncomfortable. That’s because mattresses are generally super soft or rock hard. Do you really want a mattress with either of those characteristics? What you want is a mattress that supports the spine while gently cradling the hips and shoulders.
The solution is the new Purple mattress, which is soft where you want it, but firm where you need it. Made from a new material that’s never been used in the history of mattress manufacturing – and backed by numerous patents and proprietary technology – this mattress will astound you. Have trouble getting excited about a mattress? Well, if you aren’t thrilled after 100 nights, you can get your money back. That’s the strongest guarantee in the mattress industry.
2. Philips Wake-Up Light
Our bodies are designed in such a way that we’re meant to be awake and active when it’s light outside and asleep when it’s dark. The trouble is that many of us have to wake up before the sun rises, which can mess with our internal clocks and cause us to feel tired.
That’s where the Philips Wake-Up Light comes into play. It’s an alarm clock that features a light that gradually gets brighter as it nears time to wake up. There are a handful of these products on the market, but this is by far the best.
3. Gel’O Cool Mat
Do you ever wake up sweating during warm spring and summer nights? If so, you’re aware of just how disruptive it can be for your sleep pattern. This mat is 24 x 35 inches long and is designed to be refrigerated and placed underneath your pillow or sheets. It’s supposed to dramatically lower your external body temperature and provide a cool night of sleep. It can also be microwaved in the winter when it’s cold in your bedroom.
You’ve probably been told your entire life that eating before bed is unhealthy and leads to weight gain. Well, not so fast. Research shows that hunger is actually disruptive to sleep and a pre-bedtime snack can improve your sleep cycles. However, you have to be careful what you eat. This product is high in fiber and protein, doesn’t have a bunch of calories, and contains Chocamine and melatonin, which promote relaxation and sleep.
5. Just Chill Beverage
After eating your NightFood bar, you’ll need something to wash it down. So, grab a Just Chill relaxation beverage! The proprietary blend contains ingredients like L-Theanine, lemongrass, magnesium, and ginseng, which are all supposed to promote relaxation. Best of all, the drink is only 50 calories.
6. Germ and Mold Purifier
Do germs, mold, and allergens leave you congested and irritated at night? Well, you need a solution. This germ and mold destroying air purifier is supposed to eliminate up to 99.9 percent of airborne bacteria in your room (up to 650 square feet). It draws impurities in and instantly destroys them via 400 degrees of heat. It’s the perfect solution for those who suffer from chronic sinus issues.
Get Some Sleep Tonight
Sleep shouldn’t be viewed as an optional luxury. If you want to be healthy and productive on a daily basis, you need to be getting six, seven, or eight hours of consistent sleep. Give some of these products a shot – they could help!
