The ideal setting for a good night of zzzs
Everyone, including moms and doctors, can agree that a good night of sleep is necessary for good health, high energy and an individual’s overall well-being. Not getting enough good sleep — or rapid eye movement sleep — can affect the mind and body’s ability to react appropriately to outside factors, the National Sleep Foundation reports.
Creating the perfect sleep environment is the first step toward ensuring a good night of sleep. One in four adults in the United States experience occasional sleeplessness, difficulty falling asleep or waking up feeling un-refreshed at least a few times per week, according to the National Sleep Foundation.
Fortunately, you can implement these tips and create a comfortable sleeping environment in your home for both you and your family.
• Eliminate distractions. Electronics. Noises. Lights. Many items, such as laptops, TVs and cellphones, commonly found in bedrooms can cause distractions and prevent a person from entering REM sleep. Remove these items from the room.
• Establish comfort. Creating a sleep-conducive environment is an important factor in making the most out of every minute you sleep. Cuddle up each night with soft linens and create a calming atmosphere in the bedroom.
