Reduce Sleeping Stress with a Mini Split


Sleep stress gets the best of us when insomnia, late night thoughts, or restlessness occur. Given that your issues have persisted throughout the years or are recent, sometimes falling asleep and staying asleep both feel impossible. While natural methods and remedies such as regular exercise, proper diet, and reducing stimulant intake, are all part of asserting a balanced lifestyle, sometimes a simple change in environment is just enough for you to become at ease. Although we suggest you speak to your doctor if your issues are unbearable or lead to severe problems, below we have listed some benefits mini splits offer for you to becoming a better sleeper.

4 Top Benefits

  3. Improves Melatonin
    Melatonin is a natural hormone that regulates your sleep and wake cycles. Colder temperatures stimulate your body's natural ability to produce more melatonin, which become elevated with a colder temperature. A higher dose of melatonin can bring on sleepiness, thus lowering your own body temperature.
  4. Reduces Stress / Insomnia 
    Regulating temperature allows for you body to cool down when its time for bed. On average, someone who suffers from insomnia will have a higher body temperature than those who don't. Consequently, when we are sleep deprived or if our sleep cycle is disrupted, our hormone levels become altered leaving it to be even more difficult to fall asleep.

Finally, if your problems do persist, we highly recommend you seek professional help.
