Strategies For Deep Sleep - Simple Steps You Can Take to Turn Your Bedroom Into a Safe Haven Again

Jun 29, 2008
The challenges we face from the outside world are getting into our homes. We get distracted to the point of missing quality sleep. Your bedroom should be a place of peace and quiet so you can get some quality rest for the next day. It should not be a place where you are accessible to anyone (except of course your kids). So the last thing you want is to be on edge at that time. Here's a little step-by-step routine to set the table for limiting distractions in your own bedroom.

Step 1 - Make sure your thermostat set for the perfect temperature for sleeping. Reportedly, a good temperature for sleeping is around 70 degrees. You do not want the bedroom to be too hot or too cold when trying to sleep at night. Also, if you have a ceiling fan, make sure it's on or off.

Step 2 - Turn off any mobile phones and laptops are off. Better yet keep them out of the bedroom. The last thing you want is to worry about is getting a phone call from work in the middle of the night. Also you want to create distance from your e-mail. If you're not on call for your job, don't worry. Voice mail will pick it up.

Step 3 - Light is a very huge distraction in the middle of the night while sleeping. Eliminate as much light as possible from your bedroom. Make sure your bedroom door is closed. Also, ensure all your window shades are down. So you want make sure your bedroom is dark.

Step 4 - Turn your television is off or set it for sleep mode. If you work long hours, the last thing you want is new information. So if you are the type of person that needs to watch TV at bed time, set in sleep mode so it turns off after an hour or so while you're sleeping.

Step 5 - You want to be comfortable when sleeping at night. It could mean all the difference in the world to you. Wear something comfortable to bed. This could be your pajamas or whatever you usually wear. Also get any necessary blankets or pillows that you may need.

You may want to try these steps for a week to see if you eliminated enough distractions. These steps appear to be simple. So there should be no excuse to try them. Finally, you don't need to strategize and put a lot of thought into avoiding the rest of the world during bed time. Sometimes life just gets to us and we need to change our approach once in a while. To go from sleep deprived to sleeping is really a matter of going back to basics.
