Tip 2: Design a Sleep Sanctuary 

If you’re struggling to get a good night’s sleep, your bedroom could be the reason. Here are a few quick fixes that will turn your bedroom into a healthier sleeping environment.

  1. Designate Your Bedroom for Sleeping
    Your bedroom is for sleeping and that means you should avoid working, eating, and watching TV in your bedroom.
  2. Pick the Perfect Bedding
    Choose the mattress you find most comfortable and make sure to try it out before making a purchase. Pair your mattress with bedding that is soft in both feel and color.
  3. Lights Out Means Lights Out!
    Your eyelids can flutter open as you move from one stage of sleep to another and even dim light or a full moon can wake you up. Be sure to close the drapes and ditch the glow from night lights and screens.
  4. Keep it Cool and Relaxing
    Lowering the temperature can also signal your body that it’s time to sleep. Cooler sleeping climates can also increase the number of calories you burn, which can aid in weight loss.
