Set yourself up for a healthier, happier life by giving YOU the attention you need
Quality sleep is one, if not the, most important part of self-care. It impacts every aspect of your life – your mood, productivity, concentration, physical wellbeing and mental and emotional health.
It’s time to rethink your self-care – SELF-CARE ISN'T SELFISH – because when you take care of yourself, you're better able to take care of the people in your life. It's your tool to better parenting, relationships, work and health. Getting quality sleep is the #1 thing you can do to improve your overall wellness, because we all know how awful, unmotivating and irritable it feels to be tired.
Take Care of Your Sleep Space
Your bedroom should be a reward at the end of a long day, not simply a place you crash in exhaustion. Create the ideal environment by keeping your bedroom between 65 and 68 degrees, which ensures better sleep. For couples that struggle with finding the perfect temperature balance, you’re not alone. Recent Sleep Number research shows 80% of Americans suffer from sleeping too hot or too cold.* Look for a mattress and bedding solutions that help you and your partner fall asleep and stay asleep. Sleep Number's temperature balancing bedding absorbs excess heat and releases it as you get cool, so you can both sleep comfortably.

After you go to bed, your body temperature drops during sleep and your head, hands and feet release heat. Our temperature balancing bedding absorbs excess heat, keeping you warm enough to fall asleep and cool enough to stay asleep. Game changer.
Wake Up ( The Right Way )
Establish a morning routine to reduce your stress, be more productive and start your day on the right note.
A consistent sleep schedule will help you fall asleep and wake up easier. Try to go to bed at the same time each night and wake up around the same time each morning.
When you wake up, get some natural light. Go for a quick walk around the neighborhood or take your morning cup of coffee or tea and head out to your patio. The HGTV Smart Home 2020 doubles up its outdoor spaces with an upstairs and downstairs patio – perfect for enjoying a little sunshine.
You might not be able to get the number of hours of sleep you need – life happens – so focus on making sure the sleep you do get is the best quality it can be. People who routinely use the Sleep Number 360® smart bed’s features improve their quality sleep by more than 15 minutes a night — nearly 100 more hours each year – by delivering personal insights into heart rate, breathing and movement, as well as natural sleep and wake cycles.** 100 more hours of quality sleep each year? Yes, please. Studies show that even 15 more minutes of quality sleep per night increases a body’s ability to stave off a cold or weight gain and can increase productivity.
What Do You Need?
It's important to make time for yourself, even during a busy schedule. In addition to quintessential self-care practices, such as exercising, eating healthy and getting quality sleep, make sure to give your individual preferences time in your day-to-day life. Everyone's needs are different, so think about what you require most in your life: get a massage, plan dates with friends, garden, write in a journal or make time to craft or paint.
One way to practice self-care without spending a dime is through mindful habits.
Take just a few minutes in your bedroom when you wake up. Resist grabbing your phone as soon as your eyes open, and try one of these practices:
Before getting up, lay in your bed and think about what you're thankful for.
Develop a meditation routine:
Take as little as five minutes to focus on your breathing for a better start.
