Your bedroom should be tranquil and relaxing. Invading noise or light, an uncomfortable or worn-out mattress and foundation, or a room that's too warm or too cool can prevent you from getting the sleep you need. There's no reason to settle for anything less than perfect sleep.
Your sleep environment serves as the basis for a good night's sleep. Noise, light, an uncomfortable or worn-out mattress and foundation, or a room that's too warm or too cold can set you up for poor sleep.
You can make your sleep environment more conducive for restful sleep by checking these factors.
Mattress and Foundation
Be sure your mattress and foundation meet your needs for ideal support and comfort. If you sleep with a partner, your mattress should allow you both enough space to move easily during the night.
Light is one of our body's most powerful time cues. The rising sun can stimulate the brain into wakefulness long before the alarm goes off. A dark room is the most conducive for sleep, day or night.
Sudden, loud noises from inside or outside the home can disrupt sleep. Steady, low sounds like the whir of a fan or air conditioner are soothing because they help block out other noises.
The ideal bedroom temperature is 60 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit. A room that's too hot or too cold can disturb your sleep.
