Sleep is something everyone needs, but many struggle with restless nights. This can be due to your sleep environment. Having a bedroom that is uncomfortable can be detrimental to your sleep routine and your health. There are ways to change this! The following suggestions can transform your room into the perfect sleeping atmosphere.
Lighting: Natural lighting is pretty but not the best for sleeping. If you have large windows with transparent curtains, this can let in lighting from the street at night or early sun rises, making you wake up earlier than necessary. Artificial lighting such as TV, digital clocks, or nightlights can be an issue. Make sure your room is as dark as possible by utilizing darkening shades and eliminating electronic devices that emit light.
Temperature: Maintaining a comfortable temperature will help you sleep. Having a slightly cooler temperature helps you to stay asleep. 68 degrees is the recommended temperature for comfortable sleep.
Aromatherapy: Calming scents are known to help relax the body and mind. If your room is stuffy or full of unpleasant smells, this can prevent you from falling asleep. Using an air purifier can improve the air quality and a diffuser can fill your environment with calming scents like lavender or jasmine.
Clean Bedding: Keeping your bedding clean is essential! It not only makes it more comfortable, but it is better for your health. It is recommended to clean your sheets, pillowcases, and comforter every week. This prevents dust mites and oils from lingering and causing you discomfort.
