Creating the perfect environment for a good night’s sleep

Making a few simple changes to your bedroom could help you to sleep more soundly and improve your health and wellbeing.

A good night’s sleep has countless benefits, it can improve your mood, keep you healthy, and help you to perform at your best during the day.

Use the tips in this blog to turn your bedroom into the perfect environment for falling asleep fast and sleeping more soundly.

Comfortable mattress and bedding

On average, we spend one third of our lives in bed, so it’s worth investing in a good quality mattress to make the space as comfortable and inviting as possible.

Take the time to figure out which mattress and bedding best suits your sleeping style and requirements to ensure that you are properly supported and comfortable whilst you sleep.

Choosing the right mattress and bedding will not only help you to get a better quality of sleep, it can also help to improve your posture and reduce stiffness, aches and pains.

Remove technology

Gadgets and technology don’t have a place in the bedroom. Not only can using electronic gadgets immediately before bed stimulate our minds, making it more difficult to get to sleep. The blue light emitted from screens can also disrupt our natural circadian rhythm by suppressing our body’s production of melatonin, causing a disrupted night’s sleep.

Add blackout curtains

Keep your bedroom as dark as possible to help to regulate your body’s circadian rhythm and improve the quality of sleep you’re getting. Reducing both natural and artificial light can help you to achieve the optimum amount of sleep, leaving you feeling alert and rested the next morning.

Make it quiet

Making sure that your bedroom is quiet can help you to fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly. Eliminate unwanted noise from your bedroom by banishing technology that could emit noisy notifications or annoying whirring or buzzing sounds. If noises that are beyond your control are keeping you awake, try using a white noise machine to block out distracting sounds. White noise machines play at a consistent frequency and volume which many people find soothing.
