Apr 03, 2018 /prREACH/ -- Southwest Spas and Southwest Spas and Pools, selling hot tubs and swim spas in the Phoenix and Superstition Springs area supports Sleep Awareness Month by publishing “3 Tips for Better Sleep”

Melinda Dalacas, manager of Southwest Spas and Pools says, “It’s important to get between seven and nine hours of sleep per night. But many things people do daily prevent them from doing that.”

Many people soak in a hot tub before bed time to reduce stress. Hot tubs can drastically increase the body’s ability to fall asleep and sleep better. Soaking in hot water eases the transition into deep sleep.

A portable spa makes it easier to soak for longer without having to adjust temperatures. A hot tub’s temperature controls allow people to set the temperature exactly where they want it, and it will keep the water at the perfect level of heat for the entire time. Hot tubs also have the added benefit of massage to work out tension and ease aches and pains so people can fall asleep easier. By soaking in a hot tub before going to bed, the body is relaxed, and yet has time to cool down, which prepares the body for a good rest. When the body’s core temperature drops after getting out of a hot tub, it makes it easier to fall asleep.

Keeping the bedroom cooler has helped many people sleep better. People sleep better when the room they are in is a little bit cooler than it is when they are awake. Try turning down the thermostat when it’s time for bed. Having the room between 60 and 67 degrees at night helps keep the body more comfortable when sleeping, and promotes a deeper, longer resting state.

Most people sleep in the dark, however, in some cases, nightlights are used, thinking it makes the room safer. Sometimes that is the case, but it would be wiser to rid the room of obstacles that might be dangerous at night than to use night lights. Any light, even street light coming in through light curtains can interrupt deep sleep patterns.

Even a small sliver of light disrupts the body’s hypothalamus. That is the area of the brain that controls sleep activities, and also releases the vital hormone, melatonin, that helps induce sleep. If the room isn’t dark enough, or if work schedules require sleeping during daylight hours, it is suggested that people hang blackout curtains or use a sleep mask to give the brain the darkness it needs to fully rest.

Many people forget to get rid of electronics in the bedroom. The soft glow of a cellphone’s screen or even larger alarm clocks can disrupt sleep patterns. Cellphones are a serious problem for sleep in other ways as well. If a cellphone must be kept in the bedroom, it is recommended that it is placed face down on a nightstand or shelf so the glow does not interfere with sleep.
