A comforter is a blanket or quilt, typically larger than a normal blanket, that typically lies between bed sheets on top of the mattress.

 

It can be used in many ways to create comfort. It’s often used during the winter time when one warms themselves by wrapping themselves up in it while under blankets, but it can also be used atop during hot days or afternoons to help cool down. Other usages are for naps, reading books without disturbing others in shared spaces like dorms and libraries during sunny days, for children to get comfortable before sleeping with motion-inducing items like swinging chairs and wagons at home or at daycare centers or toy stores. It can even be worn as part of formal wear. There are so many dimensions of duvets and comforters which can be taken care of while purchasing them.

WHAT IS DUVET

 

Duvets are a sort of bed covering consisting of an airtight flat sack filled with down, feathers, wool, flannel, cotton, or a synthetic substitute, and is usually covered by a removable heavy-duty cover, similar to a quilt and mattress pad. Duvets come in many different styles and colors. The primary difference between a down duvet and a feather duvet lies in the fact that down is the best insulator for warmth, as well as providing greater comfort.

 

A duvet set consists of several items. The duvet itself, a top and bottom sheet, possibly with some lining or fill material and a matching valance or shawl, sometimes with a zipper or snap closure, and a number of matching feather blankets or pillows.

 

ADVANTAGES OF DUVET

 

Comfortable- They’re usually more comfortable to sleep with. A blanket can bunch up or need to be adjusted during the night, but a duvet is like having an entire comforter for each season made of soft material. They also do not sag like blankets might after 10+ years of use and liquid spills. And, because they are machine washable, they don’t have to be washed as often as a blanket does if someone has been sick with the flu recently.

Provide Warmth- Duvets are padded, fluffed coverings intended to keep individuals warm in bed during cold periods.

Duvet covers are the pieces of cloth that come over the duvet for decoration. Comforters can provide warmth when not covered by a duvet or blanket because they add an extra layer on top of the person.

 

Good For Body- Duvets are better for people who are allergic to feathers.

Quilts are better at keeping the user warm, while it might be hotter in a bed with a comforter. A quilt can also be made of silk or other fabrics that breathe well and feel good against the skin.

 

HOW TO PRACTICE A HEALTHY SLEEP SCHEDULE

 

  • Sleep in a cool, dark, and quiet place.

 

  • Sometimes it’s difficult to establish or maintain healthy rhythms when living with other people in shared space, in these cases find ways of setting aside space at home to create your own “sleep sanctuary” – for example, by moving the bedroom furniture away from the TV, rearranging closets so that you can close them without waking up too much, or using blackout curtains.

 

 

  • Remove screens from your bedroom. They are stimulation sources which interfere with circadian rhythms.

  • Find an activity that relaxes you each day before sleeping e.g., reading a book under a peaceful

 

  • Train your body clock to go to sleep at a specific time, typically 8 hours before you want to awake.

 

  • Set an alarm or use some other means of external control that wakes you up at the desired time.

 

COMMON CAUSES OF A DISTURBED SLEEP CYCLE

 

Exercise too close to bedtime– exercise triggers the hormones that keep you alert, which can interfere with sleep.

 

 Use the bedroom only for sleeping- avoid watching TV in bed, talking on the phone or surfing the web. Also, do not eat right before you lay down to go to sleep.

 

 Go to bed when sleepy enough– if you stay up later than usual -even by an hour or two- your body will interpret this as a disruption in your “circadian” rhythm (your natural cycle of hormone release.) If this happens every night it could make it harder for both parties in a marriage; one has no energy while the other is exhausted and wanting more attention.

 

Hard Surface– If you’re sleeping on a hard surface or mattress, you may want to consider padding it with something to make it more comfortable. This might seem like an obvious step, but many people fail to take this into consideration when purchasing their bedding and often find themselves uncomfortable enough to switch out their expensive item for another one which is actually made for comfort. Doing so can drastically improve your quality of sleep at night and not hinder the rest of your efforts.

Medication – Be sure that any prescriptions for medications taken during the day

 

Inability to sleep can have a number of causes. Perhaps the most common is being so caught up in thoughts, worries and concerns from the day or events from your past that you can’t shut them off long enough for your body to take over so it may heal itself. Inability to sleep might also be due to environmental factors such as noise, light, air quality, temperature and others which disrupt one’s circadian rhythm.Some prescription medications interfere with brain chemicals that help control when a person wakes up or falls asleep, a disruption which leads directly into insomnia.
