Warm Baths Help you Sleep, and This is how

One of the easiest and best methods for improving the quality of sleep is actually a simple one – taking a warm bath before going to bed. Couple that with a new mattress from the best of San Diego mattress stores, and you’re golden.

Muscle tension release

Your body needs to be as relaxed as possible in order for you to sleep well. Warm baths help you achieve that. Warm water helps dilate your blood vessels, increasing the amount of oxygen and blood to your tight and stressed muscles. If your muscles stop being tense, your body can relax more efficiently. A relaxed body equals better sleep, because as muscle tension is released, your brain receives an impulse to wind down and get ready for sleep. Just imagine being totally relaxed as you sleep on the perfect mattress from a San Diego mattress store.

Toxin release

As our body temperature rises during a warm bath, our body begins to sweat. And, by sweating, our body releases toxins through the largest organ, our skin. Lymphatic drainage and increased perspiration are the two processes that help during detoxification. What’s more, warm baths increase circulation, which further intensifies the detoxification process. With the amount of toxins in your body sufficiently decreased, you take another step toward improving the quality of sleep.

Hormone release

With the increase in body temperature, endogenous opioid peptides are released. These are primarily endorphins. That is why people say that a warm bath makes them feel like a new person. Endorphins are natural chemicals that make you feel good, strengthen your immune system, and, most importantly, improve sleep. By making your body release endorphins, you will further increase the probability of a good night’s sleep.

Meditative state

Nothing Buddhist about this, no ommm sounds, just a stress-free mind. If you have trouble sleeping, you have to find a way to relax both the body and soul. Warm baths help with preparing your mind for sleep. By closing your eyes and enjoying a warm bath, you can trick your mind into a pre-sleep state, making it easier to fall asleep afterwards. Also, the sole process of unwinding in warm water, without distractions, sounds appealing enough on its own. Ease your mind, the rest will follow.

The body temperature trick

This is the last, but probably the most important step in preparing our body for sleep – lowering body temperature. However, a warm bath actually increases our body temperature. The trick is in the process of body temperature decrease. As you step out of the warm bath, the temperature of your body gradually begins to drop, making you feel drowsy. So, by providing a starting point for the temperature drop, a warm bath helps induce sleepiness naturally. It is important to take a warm bath an hour or so before lying down on the perfect mattress from one of San Diego’s mattress stores, so as to give your body enough time to cool.
