Do you find yourself tossing and turning in bed every day before your body finally drifts off to sleep? Then you are not alone. Many Singaporeans would have experienced such sleepless nights on several occasions. There may be multiple reasons that cause your restlessness, but fret not; allow us to share four practical tips you can adopt to help you fall asleep quickly at night.

1. Do some breathing exercises before going to bed

An occupied mind is often a hurdle to peaceful slumber. Breathing exercises are an excellent way for you to relax and calm yourself down before heading to sleep. While the effects of deep breathing are mainly psychological, calming your mind can also help to normalise your respiration and heart rate. When you are in a state of tranquility, you will find it much easier to fall asleep.

2. Lower the temperature of your bedroom

Singapore’s hot and humid climate makes it hard to sleep comfortably. Not only are you drenched in sweat, but you will also likely find yourself tossing and turning to find a comfortable sleeping position. All these factors combined make it challenging to fall asleep quickly.

During these warm nights, you may want to consider turning on the air conditioner to reduce your bedroom’s temperature. Our body temperature naturally dips when we prepare for sleep. A cooler bedroom will aid this process by signalling to your body that it is time for you to sleep.

3. Get a mattress that suits your needs

There is no one-size-fits-all when selecting the right mattress as every individual has their own needs and wants. Owning a mattress that suits your sleeping style and body type is essential to ensure you doze off quickly and get a good night’s rest.

The importance of a comfortable mattress cannot be overstated. Not only will you struggle to fall asleep quickly, you may also encounter body aches and back pains in the long run if your mattress is not providing you with the adequate support your body needs.

If you’re looking to upgrade your mattress, our DETENSE | ArcticSilk® Advanze Aire Flex™ mattress reduces muscle exertion during sleep due to its high rebound function and multi-dimensional support. The cooling gel-infused memory foam mattress also helps to minimise motion transfer during sleep, ensuring minimal sleeping disruptions in the middle of the night. Additionally, our mattress utilises natural latex to support the curvature of the user’s spine. This ensures good pressure distribution and enhances blood circulation, thus promoting pain relief. You can also pair our mattress with a customised storage bed frame, made with German Hydraulic lift system for easy access to your belongings.

4. Reduce your smartphone usage before sleep

Numerous researches have shown that using your smartphone before bed can disrupt your sleep cycle. The blue light produced by your phone screen hamper the production of melatonin, which helps to control your circadian rhythm. The circadian rhythm helps our body determine when it is time to go to sleep, so when it is disrupted, we find it challenging to fall asleep and wake up the following day. Browsing your phone before bedtime also keeps your mind engaged, thus tricking your brain into thinking it should be awake.


Our body requires 7 to 9 hours of sleep daily to function at its peak. If you find yourself struggling to fall asleep, you may wish to change your routine and improve your sleep behaviour by giving our tips a try. When you doze off quickly, you are adding hours of sleep to your weekly sleep cycle, which will help you feel more energised at work and reduce your risk of falling sick.
