Sleep Better on Vacation
— by Tempur-Pedic on May 19, 2021
For many families, summer break means summer vacation — and everyone is excited to hit the road on their next great adventure. Whether you’re planning to stroll sandy beaches or explore national parks, we know you’re eager to get some much-needed time away. And we’ve all heard the phrase, “I need a vacation from my vacation,” because we rarely prioritize the rejuvenating rest our bodies need—especially when we’re busy enjoying fun activities and making new memories. You don’t have to let your vacation sabotage your sleep routine! Discover how to get a great night’s sleep…even when you’re not at home.
Did you know “The New Bedroom Effect” can impact your sleep? A new place, even on vacation, can impact how we feel and sleep. In fact, experts found that we get lackluster sleep when staying in an unfamiliar place, because new surroundings can put us on edge and keep our brains alert all night long.^ The best way to combat this unwanted side effect? Take the comforts of your bedroom with you.
Create Your Perfect Environment
First, set your thermostat to the perfect sleep temperature— approximately 60-67° Fahrenheit. Research suggests a cooler sleep environment helps you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. Next, if you’re traveling to an area with a high-pollen count or other airborne irritants, try taking your preferred allergy relief medicine an hour before bed so itchy eyes and a stuffy nose won’t disturb you. And, be sure to swap out watching TV or scrolling on your phone for reading a book or listening to a mediation podcast. This will ensure pesky blue lights won’t stimulate your brain and keep you awake. For ultra-relaxation, make a cup of soothing chamomile tea before settling into bed.
Pack Your Favorite Pillow
Don’t forget to pack your favorite pillow. Only our TEMPUR-Cloud® Pillows are traditionally soft with the adaptive support of TEMPUR-Material™. The best part? Our pillows feature removable, machine-washable covers so you can refresh them as often as you like and put them back on your bed when you get home. Plus, the TEMPUR® Cloud pillow compresses and rolls so you can pack it in your suitcase, duffle bag, or backpack for a great night’s sleep on the go.
Travel in Comfort
For maximum comfort, bring along a TEMPUR-Topper Supreme, featuring 3 inches of supportive TEMPUR-Material™ that adapts to your weight, shape, and temperature for your most comfy sleep. Our topper is thicker than most competitors and instantly upgrades the comfort of any mattress. And, our topper is perfect for camping trips, music festivals, and more, because like our pillows, you can easily remove and wash your topper’s cover. Or opt for our complete Travel Collection, featuring a variety of Tempur-Pedic products for comfort away from home.
Bring the comforts of home wherever your travels take you this summer so you can put that "New Bedroom Effect" to sleep and return home feeling relaxed, rejuvenated, and most importantly… well-rested.
