INSOMNIA – HOW TO CREATE A SLEEP RITUAL & BEDROOM SANCTUARY10th April 2016
The Sleep Foundation suggests we use our senses to create the best environment or comfortable bedroom sanctuary for quality sleep.
– Touch: Do you feel hot or cold? Address the temperature in your room. How do your mattress, pillows, sheets, and pyjamas feel? Sleep on and in 100% natural fibers such as cotton, silk, hemp or bamboo. How old is your mattress and pillow? Maybe it’s time for a new lot. Do you get into a made bed? A Bedroom Poll by The Sleep Foundation found that many people believe clean, neat and comfortable elements of the bedroom environment are important to getting a good night’s sleep.
– See: Is your room dark? Dark enough that when you stretch out your arms you don’t see your hands. Any form of light will drop your melatonin. Sometimes there is certain light we can’t control. Put up thick curtains or blinds or wear an eye mask. Does you room look and feel peaceful and calm? Is it aesthetically pleasing? Declutter and tidy your room. Make it a beautiful and comfortable sanctuary. If you use your room for other purposes such as an office, keep those areas neat and tidy. Put up a screen to separate the spaces.
