Getting a restful night’s sleep can sometimes feel elusive. There are so many factors at play to ensure you enjoy a restorative slumber, which necessarily includes prioritizing a healthy routine combined with the right bedding and mattress. At Essentia, we understand how this winning combination directly impacts your sleep quality.

Below, you’ll find a comprehensive guide on how to improve your sleep quality through developing healthy habits and investing in sleep products that optimize your sleeping environment. 

Consistent Sleep Schedule

When it comes to overall sleep quality, consistency is key. Going to bed and waking up at the same time every day – even on weekends – regulates your body’s internal clock, which makes you more alert during the daytime, hungry at the appropriate meal times and, of course, sleepy at nighttime. 

When your circadian rhythm operates on a healthy schedule, it makes it much easier for you to fall asleep at night and wake up naturally in the morning. Our commitment to promoting a healthy sleep environment aligns perfectly with this principle, as our products are designed to help your body attune to its natural sleep-wake cycle. 

Create a Relaxing Bedtime Routine

Developing a pre-sleep routine signals to your body that it's time to wind down. To help your mind and body relax, try engaging in calming activities such as reading a book, listening to soothing music, or practicing relaxation techniques.


A little effort can go a long way to improving both the length and quality of your sleep. Our aim is to help you create a relaxing routine in a peaceful sleeping environment that eliminates any stimulants, and helps to extend the time you spend in Deep Sleep and REM sleep cycles. 

Choice of Mattress

 

It should come as no surprise that your choice of mattress will have a direct impact on the quality of your sleep. That’s why investing in a high-quality mattress is essential. But how do you know which mattress is right for you? 

Here are some things to consider:

  • The size, softness and support of your mattress are all important factors to consider. Your mattress should be large enough for your body height and weight, feel soft enough that your body feels comfortable and relaxed – regardless of the position you sleep in, and supportive enough to ensure spinal integrity. 
  • Choose a mattress that can adapt to your body. Essentia's innovative molding technology, found in our Beyond Latex™ organic foam, responds and readapts to your body’s movements, eliminating sleep interruptions and ensuring a longer, more restful night’s sleep.
  • A mattress that supports better sleeping posture and that also helps to regulate your body temperature helps to improve your overall sleep quality. Essentia’s patented Beyond Latex™ organic foam and molding technology conforms to the body's natural curves, promoting proper spinal alignment, while the active cooling technology ensures a comfortable temperature throughout the night, contributing to a more restful sleep experience.
  • Choose organic. Essentia strives to create foam mattresses that never compromise health for performance. Our commitment to using GOLS (Global Organic Latex Standard) and GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified materials ensures that your mattress is nontoxic and ethically sourced. The mattresses are manufactured in a certified organic factory, contributing to a healthier sleep environment.

Limit Exposure to Screens

While it can be challenging to put down your phone or tablet at night, it’s important to minimize your exposure to blue light at least 30 minutes before bedtime. The blue light emitted by screens interferes with the production of melatonin – an important sleep hormone that helps to promote sleep. 

Comfortable and Organic Sheets

Comfortable, breathable sheets that feel soft to the touch and help to regulate your body temperature at night are also essential for quality sleep. That’s why our commitment to optimizing sleep quality extends beyond mattresses. 

Our Performance Micro Knit Organic Sheets employ a bespoke knitting technique, making them ultra-soft on the skin. Plus, they are made with 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton to ensure maximum breathability – which also makes them suitable for all seasons. Investing in organic sheets helps to create a sleep-friendly setting that prioritizes your health and well-being.

Watch Your Diet

Maintaining a healthy diet has a positive impact on your body, your mental health, your energy levels and, of course, your sleep quality. 

Consuming heavy meals, caffeine and nicotine close to bedtime can disrupt your sleep patterns, making it difficult to not only fall asleep but also stay sleep. Maintaining a healthy sleep routine and creating a peaceful sleeping environment are essential – and that also includes making dietary choices that support your overall well-being.

Manage Stress

Stress directly impacts our physical and mental well-being, and often impairs sleep by prolonging the time it takes to fall asleep, or disrupting sleep patterns. 

Feeling stressed can elevate cortisol levels in your body, leading to sleep deprivation, so it’s important to incorporate stress-reducing techniques into your bedtime routine. Whether it’s meditation, deep breathing, or progressive muscle relaxation, find something that works best for you and try to stay consistent with it. Creating a calm, stress-free environment lays the foundation for a peaceful slumber. 

Expose Yourself to Natural Light

To help regulate your body’s natural sleep-wake cycle, it’s important to spend time in the great outdoors. Something as simple as going for a walk in the middle of the day helps to synchronize your circadian rhythm – not to mention supports your overall well-being – which makes it easier to fall asleep at night.

Improving your sleep quality involves a combination of healthy habits and a sleep-friendly setting. Our dedication to creating more comfortable and healthier conditions for sleep with premium-quality products will help you achieve the quality of rest you need.
