While it would be great to be able to fall asleep anywhere, anytime, most of us need to have a particular environment to be able to sleep soundly. It’s crucial to have your bedroom as sleep-friendly as possible with a comfortable bed, cool temperature, and minimal lights and distractions to get a good night’s rest. Continue reading for three tips for creating the perfect sleep environment in your apartment!
No one likes to sleep when they are sweaty and uncomfortably warm! It’s essential to keep your bedroom as cool as possible in the summertime, as most people sleep best in slightly cold rooms. If you don’t have an air conditioner or central air, be sure to invest in a high-powered fan. During the winter, the room may be too cold, and you may need to have the heat on during the night. Both heaters and fans can dry out the air and make the room uncomfortable to sleep in, so be sure to use a humidifier to help that problem.
Lighting is very important since a lot of our sleeping patterns depend on light and darkness. If your apartment gets a lot of outside light from buildings and street lights, be sure to invest in heavier curtains or even black-put drapes. If you need complete darkness and find yourself getting woken up much too early by the sun, consider wearing a comfortable sleep mask. Also, consider installing dimmer switches if possible on your bedroom lighting to ease into darkness as you prepare to sleep. The slow lighting change will signal to your body and mind that it’s time to unwind and rest.
Mattresses can be expensive, but since you spend about one-third of your life in bed, it is worth investing in a comfortable bed! You don’t need to spend your entire savings on a new mattress, but it’s crucial to find the type of mattress that works best for you and allows you to sleep soundly with no pain. Also, look for good quality sheets and pillowcases, as they can make a significant difference in your sleep as well!
