Dr Oz: Nate Berkus Sleep Guide
One of the things almost all of us do every night at home is sleep, but are you getting the best sleep possible? There are a few simple ways you can improve your sleep by choosing the right pillow (whether you are a stomach sleeper vs back sleeper), and design expert Nate Berkus gave advice to Dr Oz’s audience. After sharing Nate’s stress secret, Dr Oz got his bedroom advice.
Dr Oz: Pillow for Stomach Sleeper Vs Back Sleeper
Are you a side sleeper, a stomach sleeper, or a back sleeper? The answer to that question will affect what type of pillow is right for you. Go through Nate’s guide to see if you are using the right type of pillow.
Dr Oz: Side Sleeper Pillow
Nate told side sleepers to choose a latex pillow, which is on the firm side and supports your face and neck as you slumber.
Dr Oz: Back Sleeper Pillow
For back sleepers, chose a down and feather pillow. Then you can push the filling to the lower portion of your pillow to create more ergonomic support.
Dr Oz: Stomach Sleeper Pillow
Are you a stomach sleeper? This is my category. Nate said that we need to get a second wool or cotton pillow to put under the stomach. That will take strain off the lower back. Who knew you could stress your back while you slept?
Nate Berkus: When To Replace A Pillow
If your pillow is showing signs of wear or has gotten deformed, it’s time to get rid of it. Otherwise, Nate recommends getting new pillows every two years.
Dr Oz: Nate Berkus Comforter
Nate suggested that silk and cotton are the best bedding fabrics because they wick moisture away and keep you cool while you sleep. If you find yourself getting too hot at night or sweating in your sleep, it may be time to switch to a new comforter.
Dr Oz: Nate Berkus Sheets Thread Count
Surprisingly, Nate said that high thread count isn’t necessarily what you want in your sheets. That’s because a high thread count gives you sheets that are tightly woven. That can make you more hot in your sleep, which may not be what you want.
Instead, Nate said to try lower thread count sheets, which are more breathable, stay cooler through the night, and are more economical.
Dr Oz: Nate Berkus Room Darkening Shades
Do you sleep in the dark? Nate Berkus said you should. Letting light into your bedroom can age you and wrinkle your skin while you are asleep. He suggested using room darkening shades or completely covering your window with curtains to improve your beauty rest.
