Do you know someone who can fall asleep in any place at any time? That is certainly a talent to be envious of. Most folks stick with the traditional bedtime that is between 10 to 12 at night and a wake up between 6 to 7 the following morning. It actually helps to stay on a consistent sleep schedule but that is not the only thing that can help you get to sleep. You need to create the perfect sleep environment. Here’s how:
Eliminate Noise and Light
Darkness has a way of “tricking” out bodies into falling asleep. It is how we’re “coded.” When it is time for sleep, your bedroom should be as dark as possible. Blinds and/or curtains can go a long way towards cutting out the light. What about the noise? That should also be reduced as much as possible. If you live near a busy street or have roommates or family members that are staying up, then you should try to find ways to block of the noise that is generated. A sound machine that produces sounds of wave or white noise can help. Even a fan can greatly eliminate those outside noises.
Keep Things Cool
Your sleep environment should be cool. Aim for room temperatures between 65 and 68 degrees. There should also be adequate ventilation. Again, the idea of a stationary or ceiling fan can be a big help. Running the AC all night might become too expensive to maintain.
Use Your Bedroom for Sleeping Only
Your sleep environment should be just for that: Sleeping. That means avoiding doing work while in bed or watching TV. When you do that, your brain starts to associate the bedroom with those distractions and it will become harder to focus on sleep, which should be the primary goal.
Make Sure Your Bed Is Comfortable
If you are constantly waking up with stiff neck or sore back, then you need to take a hard look at your pillow and mattress. Both of those items need to be replaced if they’re pushing beyond being eight years old. Getting rid of an old pillow is easy but mattress requires the kind of help provided by Junk King Houston.
