How to Create the Perfect Room for Sleep
Where you sleep is an important factor with a lot of power that contributes to how well you sleep. By improving your sleep environment, you can change what’s keeping you awake. Back to Top of your health online page
Tossing and turning can be directly related to the mattress you sleep on. One that’s too firm can cause you to constantly shift, trying to find a comfortable spot.
A mattress that’s too firm can be unyielding and cause body aches.
Having a mattress that’s too soft can cause backaches. You want a mattress that’s top quality – one that’s just right.
You can never go wrong paying for the best mattress you can buy.
But you need a sturdy, supportive box spring, too. A weak or older box spring can cause your mattress to wear in some places.
You’ll need the right kind of pillow for your bed in order to achieve optimal sleep. A lumpy pillow can lead to a neck ache, headache or pain in your shoulders.
You may wake throughout the night having to constantly fluff the wrong kind of pillow.
An unyielding pillow can be just as bad as a lumpy one. You can find ergonomic pillows that cushion your head and help you get a good night’s sleep.
Base your pillow selection on the preferences you have for fillers and the sleep position you prefer.
Think “soothing” when it comes to bedroom accessories. Wall paint should be soothing and calming and promote sleep.
Don’t choose vibrant paint colors for your walls because vibrant paints tend to excite the mind subconsciously.
If there’s something about the room that bothers you when you’re awake, like a noisy ceiling fan, trade it out for a quieter one. The lighting in your bedroom is important.
Your bedroom needs to be dark. This helps your body get into a cycle of associating a dark room with time to go to sleep.
Keep your bedroom at an adequate temperature, leaning on the colder side. A too cold or too hot environment is not conducive to undisturbed sleep and it can make falling asleep harder.
Get rid of any bedroom clutter. Clutter bothers your subconscious and weighs on you when you’re trying to go to sleep.
Make organization and storage a top priority for your bedroom so that it’s a peaceful haven for you to slumber in.
Some bedrooms become catch all rooms where all sorts of items are stashed. Take out anything that’s not related to sleep. If you have exercise equipment in your bedroom, take it out.
Remove the television, the computer and anything dealing with work or finances from your bedroom. Keep the room quiet, too. If you live in a noisy neighborhood, use a sound machine or earplugs.
If you live alone and have trouble sleeping because of security fears, invest in an alarm system.
Finally, make sure your bedroom has a fresh clean scent that’s both soothing and relaxing. You can achieve this by using oils or scented room accessories.
