A bedroom can be full of distractions without us even realising. Below are a few things you can do or change which might help you get that full night’s sleep you have been dreaming of.
Even the smallest amount of light can have a negative effect on your sleep pattern. The most common light distractions are alarm clocks and mobile phones, it is recommended these are covered or turned away when you go to bed. Landing and outside lights should be turned off. If you have street lights outside, it is a good idea to invest in black out blinds or curtains. Artificial Light can reduce your melatonin levels which are vital to controlling your sleep cycles, this can also have a negative effect on your health by disrupting hormones.
Whilst you are sleeping your bodies temperature will naturally drop slightly. Making sure your room is cool will help ease this process. Having a room which is too hot or too cold will affect your sleep quality. The ideal bedroom temperature is said to be between 62 - 68 degrees.
Make your bedroom a place of calm. Don’t use your bedroom as a place for any other activities i.e. watching television, using laptops or game consoles. This can lead to confusion as your brain can associate the room with things other than sleeping.
Your mattress plays an important role in your sleeping pattern, if you are having either a disturbed night’s sleep or suffering aches and pains in the morning it may be time to invest in a new one.
