There are so many reasons why one might hit snooze a hundred times or even opt for going to bed early, and it’s because we’re trying to maximize our sleep and reap the benefits of a good night’s rest. In addition to helping someone look more attractive or improve their performance at work, did you know studies also show that better sleep can improve your sex life -oh .. do we have your attention now?

That’s right – there is a positive, scientific correlation between sleep and sex which is why we think you might be interested in learning. Tulo, a new bed-in-a-box brand has conducted an extensive research evaluating sleep patterns and behaviors in order to create their new mattress offering with various comfort levels based on individual sleeping styles.

Sleep expert, Parinaz Samini is sharing with Latin Times how to get the best sleep of your life, and ultimately the best sex of your life, and yes! There’s a reason why mattress has two S’: Sleep & Sex.

  1. Go to bed earlier! We have 90-minute sleep cycles and our REM stage sleep cycle happens earlier in the morning. If you have to wake up early, you may not have enough time to hit the REM stage of sleep before your alarm goes off.
  2. Have a regular bedtime routine. Our bodies are on a 24-hour cycle and our bodies do best when we have a consistent circadian rhythm. Train your body so that the appropriate hormones (cortisol/melatonin) get released in response to light/dark.
  3. Eliminate distractions. Whether it’s using a sound machine to block out other noises, or even wearing a sleeping mask, to keep you from waking up. As a bonus, using pink noise(a gentler version of white noise) has been shown to improve memory in older adults.
  4. Complete your sleep system. Choose a mattress that suits your unique sleep needs, such as sleeping position and regulating body temperature. Both are essential to getting quality rest.
  5. Avoid using electronic devices close to bedtime. The blue light emanating from them disrupts circadian rhythms. Choose a paperback book or magazine instead.
  6. Be aware of what you eat. Avoid eating foods to which you have an intolerance, such as spicy foods or dairy. Tart cherry juice before bed has shown to improve your sleep quality.
