Small changes you can make to ensure undisturbed sleep

Sleeping is a very vital human function, but some can find it hard to get an undisturbed and peaceful sleep. While our modern hectic lifestyle is largely to blame for our erratic sleep schedules, there is a lot we can do to change the way we sleep. The right way to do this is by paying attention to patterns that go unnoticed. The next step would be to reassess any elements of your bedroom that contribute to your discomfort.  
We, at Home Centre, believe that everyone deserves the best lifestyle possible. That is why we want to do everything in our capacity to help you combat your sleep struggles. In this article, we have compiled a list of simple and small steps you can take to ensure a night of uninterrupted, restful sleep.


1. Get the right furnishings  



Your bedroom hygiene is as important as personal hygiene. Make it a habit to change your bedsheets and pillow covers at least once a week. Moreover, if you are allergic to external irritants such as detergents and softeners, you can switch to using bed furnishings that create a healthy breathing atmosphere. Our curated collection of Healthy Living furnishings will be the ideal solution. Pick from our Healthy Living collection of pillows, duvets, pillow protectors, and mattress protectors. These products are infused with anti-bacterial heating oils and protective materials such as:

  • Argan oil, which has anti-inflammatory, UV protection, and anti-ageing properties
  • Neem oil that is anti-fungal and pest-resistant
  • Silvadur that prevents decay, discolouration, and bacteria
  • Copper that increases blood circulation and releases positive ions
  • Charcoal that helps regulate temperature, moisture, and odour


2.    Switch to posture-correcting mattresses and pillows



Sometimes, you might not even know that your mattress, duvet, and pillow add to your sleep discomfort or contribute to conditions like insomnia. Switch from plain bedding to a posture-correcting one, and in a few days, you’ll see the difference it makes! Whether you need a flat or plump pillow or a firm or soft mattress, our range of bedding solutions can help. You might want to start with the ‘Art of Sleeping’ collection and select the resting level and mattress type you like – coir, Bonnell spring, pocket spring, foam, or orthopaedic. Again, all our mattresses are bug-proof, anti-microbial, and super breathable. Once you have your mattress sorted, give your neck the comfort it deserves with our versatile pillows from our collection. Whether you are a back, side, or stomach sleeper, you will find a pillow ideal for you.



3. Maintain proper sleeping time 


You might have heard this often but failed to put it into practice because you didn’t have the right bedroom atmosphere and furnishings. But once you do, all the discomfort gets eliminated. It is up to you to remove any distractions that can keep you awake beyond a reasonable hour. We mean cellphones, laptops, and tablets. Keep them out of sight an hour before bedtime, as they can affect your natural sleep cycle and inhibit the secretion of the sleep hormone melatonin. It is best to stick to the same time for sleep every day and wake up at the same time to maintain balance. Avoid all-nighters, tune out from the world’s chaos a few hours before sleeping, and indulge in things that relax you. For instance, you can meditate, read (something light) or journal half an hour before bed and ease yourself into falling asleep. Also, avoid afternoon naps that exceed half an hour. Eat as healthy as possible and keep the junk for cheat days or (even 
Sleep is something that should come naturally. If you find yourself struggling with this basic human need, give yourself the benefit of the doubt at first and take a look at your bedroom, and see if it needs some revamping. Once you take care
