Getting a full night’s sleep is crucial to the overall physical and mental health of anybody. Besides making changes to your sleep habits, creating the right sleeping environment for yourself is just as important. As a leading mattress store for Alpharetta, we’ve helped answer so many questions about designing a sleep-friendly bedroom environment. For that reason, we’ve created a simple guide to putting together the perfect environment for sleep.
Before changing the external factors, we believe that changes first start with you. The better sleep hygiene you can practice, the more your sleep quality will increase. Here are some good habits that we strongly encourage you to bring into your daily routine:
In the beginning, it may not be easy to make these changes. However, they will prove to have a significantly positive impact on your sleep in the long term.
A perfect sleeping environment is definitely a personal preference but, there are several common factors that can combine to make a much more restful sleep for you and your partner. First and foremost, is your mattress. This the foundation of anyone’s rest.
Reflect on your personal preferences and think of what types of mattress and pillow that are comfortable for you. Do you usually sleep on your back, your side, or your stomach? Would you prefer to have a lot of neck support or just a little? With whatever decisions that you may go with, make sure that your body weight is fully supported and your spine is properly aligned during your sleep. You should also wash your sheet and pillowcases on a weekly basis to keep pollen, pet dander, and dust mites from interfering with your sleep.
For those with joint issues and health issues like sleep apnea, an adjustable bed can be a great option. The key to selecting any mattress, is testing it out. While online sales have gained some popularity, the best and traditional way of visiting a mattress showroom is always the way to go. At Fred’s Beds we pride ourselves on having a team of experts fully trained and knowledgable about the many mattress options for a perfect night’s sleep.
For your brain to associate the bedroom with relaxing and resting, you need to remove objects that alleviate yourself from doing so. TVs, laptops, phones, and tablets are at the top of the list of things that are disruptive to your sleep. Your work desk or treadmill should also be in another room. In addition, consider removing the clutters inside your closet, which is directly connected to your bedroom. Overall, the less distracting your bedroom is, the more sleep-conducive it’d become.
A study conducted in 2012 has shown that the temperature of the room where you sleep is among the most important factors in getting a good night’s sleep. Generally, you want to keep it cool in the bedroom, somewhere between 60 and 68°F. Bear in mind that factors like the climate condition of where you live, the current season, or your sheet material can affect the temperature of your sleeping environment. If you are a warm sleeper, the 60 -68°F range may not work for you, but we don’t encourage anything over 75 or below 54°F as that certainly will disrupt your sleep quality.
It goes without saying that loud noises negatively impact your overall sleep experience. Whether it’s dog bark or your neighbor’s music, they all cause interruption to your sleep. To resolve this issue, you can opt for double-glazed windows, heavyweight drapes, and earplugs. In addition, you may consider introducing white noise to your sleep routine. The sounds of crashing wave or light rainfall from a white noise machine can do wonders for your sleep.
