Splurging for Insomnia

If money was no object and you did not have to look at a single price tag, what would you buy? No, not just to pay your debt and buy a house – you would already have all that.

Money is no object whatsoever. You have done all the good deeds you need to do. Now it is time to focus on you. What would you buy to help alleviate your insomnia and increase the chances of getting a good night’s rest?

Creating the ultimate splurge wish list

I would like to share mine with you. This led me down a path of research that I really enjoyed. I may even have set up some saving goals to attain some of these over time.

Please do feel free to share with me what you would buy to help alleviate your insomnia. Also, if you have something that you use, please share this with us too.

A bed perfectly sized for me

Oh, even just the thought of a new bed excites me. I would head over to the closest store that sells top range beds and get myself fitted for a new bed. One size fits all is really not a thing for beds unless you do not have much of a choice.

There are so many factors that come into play. How tall you are, how much you weigh, and what your favourite sleeping position is. This all plays a part in what mattress is best suited to your needs.

The best linens money can buy

Top-quality, breathable, smooth, crisp linen. Enough sets to change out whenever you need to. They have got to be thick, soft, and they should never ever make any little fuzzballs, which are also known as lint balls or pills.

I would love to be able to choose high-end linen that would not only look good but feel so good on my skin. Suffering from psoriasis means that good quality linen will have a great impact on me. I do believe that the good stuff is able to assist in temperature control too.

A weighted blanket

This is actually something that has found its way onto my wish list, and I am currently saving for one. Getting the correct blanket for your weight and body size is essential. An occupational therapist would be able to help you work out exactly what you need.

State-of-the art air-conditioning

I live in South Africa. Summers out here are no joke, and they make sleeping an absolute nightmare. A state-of-the-art air-cooling system would be installed, and the perfect temperature would be set every night. Said air-conditioner should not make a noise; it should just do its thing quietly in the corner.

No light and no sound

Blackout curtains and soundproofed walls – I do believe that both of these would have a substantial impact on my sleeping habits. Not needing to hear the traffic of the neighbors would be blissful.

Also, the over-enthusiastic sunrays would need to wait their turn before hauling me out of bed. Importantly, this would leave me with the freedom to control the lights and the sound within the space.

Less stress and fewer worries

I do believe that if money were no object, my stress levels would also automatically be lower than what they are. Financial worries would be a thing of the past, and having the freedom to sleep past my alarm clock in the morning after a bad night would simply be priceless.

When you have been sleeping badly and need to get up and get to work at 7:30 AM, it really has a way of bringing your mood down and your stress up.
