Upgrade from Full to Queen for a Full Night’s Sleep

Nothing beats a good night’s sleep. You wake up feeling refreshed and ready to live your life. Work is much easier to deal with rested than sleepy. We know this yet we consistently shortchange ourselves on sleep. There are a few things we can do to improve the quality and amount of sleep we get. The first would be to make sure that you have the right sized mattress. If you’re part of a couple, having a full sized bed might not be enough for you. If you’re both tall and/or broad people, the bed can feel very cramped. Cuddling is nice, but it’s less enjoyable when you’re cramped in and have no other choice. If you find yourself short changed on sleep, consider upgrading from a full to a queen mattress (or bigger).

There are a few other things you need to handle to get a good night’s sleep. One of which is your caffeine intake. For most people it out of their system in a few hours but for some it can persist longer. If you’re having difficulty getting to sleep it might be time to lay off the stimulants especially after noon. You also want to avoid anything that will get you excited or angry late at night. If you’re a young person, if you plan on going to bed around 11 o’clock every night you should probably turn off the video games around 10 o’clock. That way you’re not riding an excitement, or depending on the game, frustration high when you go to bed. You don’t want to be restless and frustrated when trying to sleep.

Avoid napping, and avoid alcohol. Alcohol can make you lose sleep into the day and not be able to sleep at night, or it might result in poor sleep. Napping has the effect of re-energizing you, but, depending on when you nap and for how long, it could be too much energy. You might pick up an hour of sleep at the expense of four hours.
So in recap: make sure you have the right size mattress for your needs. They last a long time so if you need to upgrade do it. It’s not worth cramming two people into a full if they can’t fit comfortably when a queen mattress would serve better. Calm yourself down before bed; you don’t want adrenaline going through you. And finally avoid the chemicals (caffeine, and alcohol) and sleeping during the day. If you find yourself tossing and turning get up, get out of bed and go sit and read for a bit. Taking your mind off of trying to sleep can help you sleep.
