Ahhh sleep…… how do you like yours? Do you have any sleeping habits? I’d love to know!
Sleep is a lot of different things to a lot of different people and comes in many shapes and forms. Do you fall into one of the main categories below? (*based on research conducted or made up, who knows*)
The Over Indulgers: quite possibly these are non-parents or teens/early 20’s who just love to laze around catching up on some Zzzz’s whenever and wherever they can.
The 40 Winkers: absolutely 100% are parents to newborns and/or toddlers/preschoolers who have yet to discover the joy of a full night sleep and give their parents no more than a catnap at any given opportunity.
The Snoozers: This is me. Loves my sleep but regardless of how many hours I have, I will still always hit the snooze button on 3, yes 3 of my alarms!
How Do Your Sleeping Habits Help You Sleep?
But what about how you sleep? That’s just as important as how much sleep you get, buy ambien zolpidem, isn’t it? We all do or need different things to help us catch that all important shut eye to feel rested and revived the next morning. Even if it’s only revived enough to make it to the kettle so you can tag team the coffee in to take over the reigns for the day!
Do you have a routine though? Do you need a good bedtime routine?
Let’s take Olivia for example; She needs to have her phone on playing god awful YouTube videos to help her get in ‘the zone’. Her light will be off but her Lumie will be set. Then when she hits ‘the zone’ it’s total silence. No noise, a little bit of light, and absolutely 3,000 pillows propping her up. The pillows are non-negotiable despite the fact that they will end up on the floor during the night.
How about me? What are my sleeping habits? I like silence. It needs to be nice and quiet for me. Or maybe some white noise in the background lulling me into a peaceful nights sleep. There is a TV in my room, and my phone by my bed but when it comes down to it, it all gets switched off. If I do fall asleep watching something, chances are it will either wake me up before the programme/film ends (do you know how many films I’ve missed the ending of!) or the sound of the TV going from an on-demand show back to normal TV will give me the fright of my life. I always end up waking back up to either turn the sound down or turn it all off completely.
It also has to be dark. Ironically I live on a busy main road so the general hustle and bustle will rarely wake me. But I do tend to sleep in silence as opposed to falling asleep to music/TV/Background Noise and it seems Olivia is exactly the same too.
Mattress Next Day commissioned this sleep survey. Do any of these results sound like you?
