Having a hard time getting a good night’s sleep? The problem could be a bedroom that isn’t geared toward your health. With a few simple tweaks, though, you can turn your room in a relaxing, restful space that will help you get all the sleep you need, and then some!
For example, you probably wash your bedding and pillows with regularity, but when was the last time you paid attention to your mattress? You can flip it, of course, but you should also rotate it one hundred eighty degrees every several months to ensure even wear. Also, every couple of months you should give it a quick sprinkle with baking soda, then wait fifteen minutes before vacuuming it up. This will keep your mattress clean. If you’re still not sleeping as well as you’d like, consider turning down your thermostat at night. Experts agree that temperatures of around sixty-five degrees can help you sleep better. Finally, if you have a tendency to hit the snooze button in the morning, consider moving your alarm across the room. Snoozing might feel good in the moment, but it will confuse your brain and leave you feeling worse as the day goes on!
