Sleep is something that so many of us struggle with. Between having to work late and noisy neighbours waking us up early there’s hardly a hope! Well, here are three changes you can make in the bedroom that will improve your sleep.
- Improve the Comfort of Your Bed
Having an uncomfy bed is a guaranteed way to ruin your sleep. Tossing and turning all night unable to get comfy, meanwhile lumps poking into your back just aren’t a good time. The problem is that buying a new mattress is a costly purchase and one that shouldn’t be take lightly. But why not buy a new mattress topper instead? That way you can have all that luxury comfort at an absolute fraction of the price!
- Keep Your Phone Away From The Bed
Mobile phones are one of the great technological advances of the age but it’s not worth keeping them beside the bed for all the problems they cause. The light emitted from the screen actually stops the production of melatonin which is the hormone that passes round your body telling it it’s time to go to sleep. Without it you’re going to have a really tough time sleeping so keep the phone away from the bed.
- Create a Proper Routine
The human body responds so well to routines that having one in the bedroom really improves how easily you fall asleep and how you feel when you wake up. A great bedtime routine consists of having a set time you stick to each night, and a way of winding down before sleep. My hands down favourite wind down has got to be reading. Getting lost in a great book is just the best, it calms the mind and let your eyes fully relax. It becomes so easy just to put the book down close your eyes and fall asleep.
The otherside to that is waking up at the same time every day. Once your body gets the hang of waking up at the same time everyday it only gets easier and soon you’ll start waking up right before your alarm fresh as a daisy.
