Get your adjustable beds for seniors at Flexabed!

A doctor’s recommendation isn’t needed to warrant an adjustable bed. Perhaps you know someone who would like to watch TV or read in bed without craning their neck. An adjustable bed provides a comfortable position wherever the sleeper wants to go. That freedom of comfort is one of the many reasons seniors and their families come to Flexabed for adjustable beds.

We’ve all been there. Tossing and turning at night. Checking the clock over and over. Watching the hours roll by, and failing at every attempt to go to sleep. Few things are more frustrating than thinking about how exhausted you’re going to be the following day, while feeling powerless to do much about it.

At Flexabed, we’re all for promoting healthy sleep habits and quality rest with our line of luxury adjustable beds. As such, we’ve compiled a list of tips and tricks for those struggling with how to fall asleep faster. If drifting off to dreamland is an issue for you, try some of these tactics for more effectively going to sleep at night.

1– Try the Military Method

The military method was initially developed to help pilots fall asleep in less than two minutes flat! This trick involves actively and strategically relaxing the body one muscle group at a time. You begin by relaxing the muscles in your face including those inside your mouth. Then you drop your shoulders to release tension, allowing your hands to drop down by your sides. Next you exhale, relaxing the chest. Next your legs, thighs, calves. Then you clear your mind for 10 seconds, imagining a relaxing scene. It takes some practice, but can be a great way to wind down and practice mindfulness at bedtime.

If you're wondering how to fall asleep faster, one way is to avoid electronics for 30 to 60 minutes before going to bed.

2– Manage Lights/Avoid Electronic Devices

Bright light has an effect on the body’s circadian rhythm, which is what keeps people awake and alert during the day. Conversely, the absence of light at night tells the body it’s time to rest. The blue light emitted by electronic screens– like computers, televisions, tablets, and cell phones– interrupts this natural circadian rhythm, making it more difficult to fall asleep and to achieve deep, rejuvenating rest.

Try to avoid screens for 30 to 60 minutes prior to going to bed! Replace that screen time with relaxing music, meditation, or reading to help the mind and body relax.

3– Ignore the Clock!

Checking the time repeatedly while you toss and turn is counter productive. The more aware you are of time, the more anxious you’ll tend to become about losing sleep, which only exacerbates the problem. Try removing any time-keeping device other than your alarm clock from your bedroom, and turning the clock away so you can’t see it from bed.

4– Crank the AC

Your internal body temperature actually plays a key role in your biological clock and sleep patterns. Your body temperature drops after you fall asleep, and a cool, dark bedroom helps to boost melatonin production. Most people fall asleep faster in temperatures between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit. Even if you’re a cold-natured person, you may want to try this trick for falling and staying asleep at night!

Another tip for how to fall asleep faster is getting the right bed for you!

5– Avoid Caffeine and Carbs

It’s no surprise that the food and drink you put into your body have an impact on sleep. Large amounts of carbohydrates can cause drowsiness; however, after a carb-loaded meal, people tend to sleep for a short time, then toss and turn the rest of the night. Foods with high-fat content actually work better at helping promote restful sleep. It’s best to avoid carbs for at least 4 hours before turning in at night, and caffeinated beverages for about 6 hours prior to bedtime. Instead, try chamomile tea and nuts for a bedtime snack, as the tea contains calming agents and almonds and other nuts are high in fat and protein.

6– Get the Right Bed for You

None of these tips or tricks will do much good if you’re not working with the right bed/bedroom. For this reason, it’s important to ask yourself this question: Are you setting yourself up for success when it comes to falling and staying asleep? Check in about your mattress and bed frame. Are they serving you? If it’s time to upgrade, check out our Flexabed luxury adjustable mattresses and bed frames. They can be completely customized to best meet your sleep needs and preferences so you can achieve deep, restful sleep every night.

One of the most common sleeping positions is on one’s side. It’s a misconception that using an adjustable bed won’t work if this is your favorite sleeping position.
