Reset Your Sleep Habits This Spring

Reset Your Sleep Habits

Catherine Morris, Managing Director of Tielle Love Luxury, is using her many years of experience in the luxury linen industry to call on people to reset their sleeping habits and reap the health benefits this Spring. Tielle Love Luxury has provided guests at the most exclusive hotels in the world with a great night’s sleep for over 30 years, thanks to its luxury bed linen, made from the finest quality, ethically sourced yarns. After many requests from guests, interior designers and boutique hotel owners to make its luxury textiles more widely available to be enjoyed at home, Tielle Love Luxury was born. Its luxury fibres and classic, signature white colour ways make for the ultimate in bedroom comfort and style, the recipe for the perfect night’s sleep.

  1. Create a sleep sanctuary. Sleep is proven to have a positive effect on mental and physical wellbeing, so creating a better sleeping environment is a no-brainer. Make the sleep environment a bastion of physical and mental relaxation that has as few distractions or potential sleep disruptions as possible. 
  1. Invest in quality bedlinen. Selecting quality bedding helps to create a great night’s sleep time after time. We recommend bed linen that’s made of 100% high-grade long-staple cotton. It will have a direct impact on how long bedding will last and how well you sleep. It is not only breathable and soft, helping you maintain a perfect sleeping temperature, but it also has superior strength over polycotton or polyester alternatives. So, although it may be slightly pricier, given the right care, it will last longer and will be more cost effective in the long run. 
  1. Switch tog with the seasons. A hot bedroom is bad for sleep quality – 85% of Brits suffer from sleep disturbance as a result of being the wrong temperature.  Make sure to alternate between different tog levels for your duvet throughout the year. In Spring consider changing your duvet to a lighter 4.5 or 7.5 tog to get a cool night’s sleep on warm evenings.
  1. Invest in products that have anti-allergy properties. As hayfever season looms, opt for anti-allergy items that help prevent night-time allergies, such as the Suprelle Tencel Eco Fresh pillow and duvet which are loved by five star hotels nationwide because they are the ultimate in sustainable luxury. Crafted from recycled materials and blended with Tencel®, an award-winning botanic fibre to help keep you cool and dry as you sleep. Thoughtfully made to ensure what’s good for the environment is just as good for your bed, the pillows’ fibres meet the highest standards of performance and environmental quality, saving 80 million plastic bottles annually going to landfill. 
  1. Wash your linen regularly. Clean sheets are a fundamental factor in a healthy sleep routine. In fact the clean fresh smell has been proven to aid nodding off. A recent YouGov study found that 33% of people change their linen once a week, 35% once every fortnight and the rest… who knows?! As onerous as it might sound, we advise giving your sheets a wash at once a fortnight and give your duvet and pillows a professional clean at least twice a year too. 
  2. Move more during the day. It might sound counter-productive but exercise, and movement in general, can boost energy levels and help you to sleep better. Research shows that if you can manage to stick to a low intensity running program three times a week for six weeks, you could be in for significant improvements in fatigue and sleep quality.
  1. Have a routine. Going to bed at the same time each night and getting up at the same time each morning, even on weekends can help to improve your sleep, so you feel refreshed when you wake up in the morning because you’ve given your body enough time to rest and repair.    
  1. Take a power nap. If you’re feeling zapped, don’t reach for the caffeine, instead reach for a throw and snuggle up. A 20-minute power nap is great for boosting alertness and motor learning skills. Research also shows that longer naps help boost memory and enhance creativity.
  1. Quantity vs quality. We’re often told that getting eight hours sleep is the best way to wake up feeling restored and refreshed. Now experts such as Dr. Nerina Ramlakhan say quantity and quality sleep go hand in hand because the longer you sleep, the more cycles you will go through and the longer you’ll spend in the restorative zones.
