Getting Started With Floor Sleeping!

Getting Started With Floor Sleeping

Discovering the advantages of contemporary floor sleeping may leave you eager to embark on your own floor sleeping journey. Fret not, as we are here to expertly guide you through the steps and share invaluable tips that will seamlessly launch you into the world of floor sleeping!

Firstly, choosing the right surface is crucial for a comfortable experience. Traditionally, Tatami mats, or even futons are popular choices to provide support for your body’s natural contours. Floor Sleeping may require some adjustment to your usual sleeping positions as well. Initially, experiment with different postures to find what feels most comfortable for you. Many find sleeping on their back with a small pillow for neck support to be a good starting point. If you’re accustomed to sleeping on a particularly soft or unsupportive bed, transitioning to sleeping on a firm mattress may take some time. After a short adjustment period, you will feel the benefits of floor-sleeping as the even weight distribution and spinal alignment help to ease stiffness and back aches. For those new to floor sleeping, placing a futon or quilt over your Tatami Mattress can help provide added comfort while retaining the benefits.

Depending on your comfort preferences, you may want to consider investing in additional supportive accessories: a pillow or cushion for added neck support. Pay attention to how your body feels after each night of floor sleeping. Take note of any improvements in posture, back comfort, or overall sleep quality. This feedback will help you fine-tune your sleeping experience. Lastly, consistency is key when adopting any new sleep routine. Once you’ve found a floor sleeping setup that works for you, aim to stick with it regularly. Your body will gradually adjust to this new sleeping environment.

Since we at the Tatami Shop specialise in modernising the art of floor sleeping, here is a comprehensive starter pack to kick-start your floor sleeping experience with the best sleep possible.
