To sleep, perchance to dream . . . But how? Getting a sufficient amount of sleep is a key part of a healthy lifestyle that can benefit our hearts, weight, minds and more. But according to the Centers for Disease Control, one in three adults don’t get sufficient shut eye. Our sleep series is exploring all the ways in which you can maximize your chances for a sound, refreshing night’s zzz’s. We’ve looked at mattresses, and pajamas. But what about sheets? Do they matter in this quest?
Where will October 2018 take you? Where should it? You could visit a cosmopolitan city (we’re thinking Paris, New York, Rome or Tokyo). Or take a cultural journey to Muscat, Oman. Halloween means there’ll be spooky good fun all over the world. Looking for something more bucolic? Head to New England or the Lake District in the UK for the spectacular views of the autumn leaves. Feeling the need for adrenaline-fueled adventures? It’s perfect bungee-jumping weather in Queensland, New Zealand. Or take flight in New Mexico in a hot air balloon. More in the mood for the beach? Ditch your shoes and set up shop in Cabo. New river boat, new seaside resort, New England, New Zealand, New Mexico — it’s all waiting for you this October. Let’s go!
Can the pajamas you wear improve your sleep? Absolutely. There’s plenty of evidence that your body temperature affects the quality of your sleep, so a breathable pair of pyjamas (as some of our friends spell it) can make a big difference. And surely looking great is a helpful way to feel great, right? And feeling great can only help you relax and drift off. Here are our top picks for luxurious p.j.’s that will have you looking smart and sleeping soundly.
