Know Your Sleep Inhibitors

October 14, 2014


When it comes to your sleeping routine, there are a few annoying things that can really keep you up at night. Sleep inhibitors are quite common, but in most cases it is simply a matter of changing your habits. Knowing what inhibits your sleep can be the first step towards regaining all those lost hours, provided that you make a few easy changes.

Keeping Up Communication

If you are constantly connected with friends or co-workers via email or social media, it may become a sleep inhibitor for you. People often enjoy checking their emails before bed or spending time online; the glow of your screen can reduce the production of melatonin, keeping you awake. Luckily there’s an easy way to combat this – apart from putting down your phone of course – simply dim your screen and hold it more than 14 inches away from your eyes.

Sunlight Deprivation

If you do not have an office window or come in contact with direct sunlight during the day, it can definitely impact your sleep patterns. The American Academy of Sleep says that sunlight-deprived office workers sleep on average 46 minutes less every night, which can add up to quite a lot of lost time in a year.

Alcohol Consumption

Being intoxicated can really mess with your sleeping patterns, especially in the case of females. Since women’s metabolic rates are different from most men’s, it can lead to a loss of sleep – in fact up to 19 minutes more at a time, according to a study in the Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research journal.

Getting a good night’s rest is essential and with the wide variety of high quality beds from Bed King, you can get used to waking up feeling refreshed. For more information on our products, please browse our product pages or find one of our bed stores near you.
