As life becomes more hectic, it's much easier to go longer without sleep. This is becoming more and more common in everyone's daily lives, however, rest is of utmost importance, since sleep gives the body and brain time to recover from the stress of the day. After a good night's sleep, you perform better and are better able to make decisions. Sleep helps us feel more alert, optimistic and have a better relationship with people.
The most common question related to sleep is: How many hours of sleep do you need? The answer to this question may vary, since people need different hours of sleep depending on their lifestyle, among others. Most adults need 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night for good mental health and functioning. Some adults need up to 9 hours of sleep per night, for example.
To achieve a good rest, we recommend the following tips to implement in your daily life:
1. A good pillow
Most of the time when we talk about our rest we refer to the mattress, but we have to admit that the pillow is the perfect companion for our mattress to guarantee us the perfect rest.
However, choosing the perfect pillow is not an easy task, the range of pillows on the market is enormous.
At Plumas we have a variety of pillows that fit your needs and guarantee you an excellent night's rest.

- Pillow in Pillow Premium Pillow:
It maintains the same characteristics of the Pillow in Pillow Signature but is firmer and has more weight.
2. Lead a healthy and balanced lifestyle
A diet based on healthy foods and the practice of regular physical exercise are the essential pillars to enjoy good health. It is advisable not to do intense physical activities before going to sleep.
Don't go to bed hungry or feeling very full. In particular, avoid heavy or very abundant meals a couple of hours before bedtime. That discomfort may keep you awake.
3. A dream quilt
When it comes to getting the best rest, bedding is as important as having a good mattress for rest. Duvets are used on winter nights for comfort, they are breathable, insulate perfectly from the cold and maintain a constant temperature.

- Classic Duvet:
Combines 20% down and 80% feather. Feathers may be more noticeable to the touch.
4. Create a relaxed environment.
Create an ideal room for sleeping. Often this means a cool, dark, quiet room. Exposure to light can make it more difficult to fall asleep. Avoid prolonged use of light-emitting screens just before going to sleep. Consider using room-darkening curtains, earplugs, a fan, or other devices to create an environment that suits your needs.
Doing relaxing activities before bedtime, such as taking a bath or using relaxation techniques, can promote better sleep.
5. Control worries.
Try to resolve your worries or concerns before going to sleep. Take note of what you think and leave it for the next day.
Stress management can help you. Start with the basics, such as how to organize, prioritize, and delegate tasks. Meditation can also relieve anxiety.
Resting well can be the root of many benefits for our health. Sleep helps us grow healthy, activate our immune system, prepare our brain to learn new things and consolidate what we have learned, help our mood and reduce stress.
Incorporate these tips into your daily life and notice the difference in improving your rest at night. Because you deserve the dream you long for!
