We understand that sleep will probably be the last thing on your agenda for Freshers’ Week, and let’s face it, early nights are less than realistic when there’s so much to do!
When it’s impossible to get enough hours of sleep in, making sure the sleep you do manage to get is good will definitely help you when it comes to being bright-eyed and bushy-tailed the following day! We’ve compiled a list of tips at Mattressman that you may find useful when it comes to getting the best quality sleep this Freshers’ Week.
As hard as it may be to keep your dorm room tidy, try to keep your space as clutter-free and inviting as possible in order to let yourself relax and drift off to sleep – consider tidying your bed and the surrounding space before you head out as this will guarantee you a space to curl up in when you get home.
When you get back from a night out, remember to take a glass of water to bed – drinking a splash of that magic H₂O before you go to sleep will ensure you wake up feeling refreshed and less tired. Not only that but drinking water when you get out of bed in the morning will wake you up and get you ready for the day.
An inexpensive way to make sure you get some real sleep is to invest in some earplugs and an eye mask; these are a great way to block out unwanted light and sound without having to adjust your sleeping space in any way and they’re also a quick way to ensure a night of good quality sleep.
Making sure your bed is as comfy as possible at the start of the year may seem like a dull practice, but you’ll need plenty of beauty sleep throughout your university career. Spending a small amount of money on a good mattress topper will not only add extra comfort to an older mattress but they are also a great way of protecting your mattress from wear, prolonging its lifespan – and you can move them around with you easily from house to house. And best of all, it will mean during all-important Fresher’s Week you’ll get some comfortable sleep!
We hope you have the best Fresher’s Week, and above all, get the best quality sleep possible.
