Are you running out of sheep to count and still cannot fall asleep?
Your bedroom could be the reason of your insomnia.
One of the tips to beat insomnia is to create a conducive sleeping environment.
Here are 7 easy hacks to a more sleep-friendly bedroom:
1. Close the drapes
A dark environment will help you sleep better. Turn down the lights and close the drapes so you can get deeper and better quality sleep.
2. Have a hot bath
A hot bath helps lower your body’s temperature as a response to the heat.
3. Bring the temp down
A cool temperature will help tell your body it’s time to sleep.
4. Buy a new mattress
With so many mattress options in the market, it can be a huge confusion to decide which one is the right mattress for you. The truth is, you’ll only know the right mattress for you if you try it in your home for 30 days. Find mattress shops that offer this option and test it out. The right mattress should allow you to sink into a deep natural sleep and wake up in the morning without pains and aches.
5. Choose the right bedding
Invest in high quality, soft beddings in a soothing color. Get as many pillows as you want.
6. Pick your favorite bedroom scent
Every person is different and have their own preference on scents. But studies show that a quick spray of soothing lavender water on your sheets and pillows before bed will help calm your exhausted mind.
7. Put on socks
There is no scientific explanation to this, but some studies show that putting on socks to bed helps you sleep. It could be because they warm your feet and legs, signaling your internal body temperature to drop.
