Fight Insomnia: Is Your Bedroom Conducive To A Good Night's Sleep?

Jun 30, 2008
First and foremost, your bedroom should be quiet and relaxing. Several things are just not welcome when it comes to rest: noise or light, an uncomfortable or worn-out mattress and foundation, or a room that's too warm or too cool can prevent you from getting the sleep you need. There's no reason to settle for anything less than perfect sleep.

So, what should we do?

Let's begin with the room itself. Look around the floor, and see if the is dust, papers and clothes. If there are, then that is a good place to begin to revamp your sleeping area. Studies have shown that those living in cluttered quarters are more likely to suffer from insomnia.

Next, consider the distractions that tend to plague the location of your room at night. Does the running refrigerator drive you crazy? Does that one street light glare into your bedroom to no end? Guess what? These things will add to your restlessness throughout the night, so close the door, draw the curtains, and put a blinder over your eyes.

At this point we are going to focus on the bed, which is supposed to be comfortable and inviting, for all intents and purposes. When was the last time you got a new mattress? Have those sheets been washed recently? Is it positioned right near a window so that the sun beats down on you in the morning? Honey, if you expect to stay put for eight hours straight, you want to make sure that the bed feels more like feathers than bricks.

Do what is necessary to accommodate your needs so you can avoid bouts of insomnia due to things which you have control over.

And finally, is your room inviting? In order for you to avoid having trouble sleeping, you need to create a certain ambience. The room should look good, smell good, feel good. Perhaps there is a dreadful color on the walls that needs attention. Or maybe a little aromatherapy can prevent you smelling this evening's dinner over and over again. And fuzzy pajamas never hurt anyone.

Many people automatically assume that insomnia is solely caused by a major health issue. While this can be true, there are several social, physical and mental factors that attribute to insomnia. Make the room work for you rather than just seeing it as a place you rest your head for a few hours each night.

Hopefully, these do's and dont's of the sleep environment will encourage you to make your bedroom more sleep-friendly and conducive to sleeping through the night.
