During the warmer months, the heat can play havoc with our sleep. Therefore, falling asleep in a smooth and efficient manner can often feel like a cause for celebration.
When it comes to preparing your body for rest, it is so important create the ideal bedtime routine and also a sleep environment that is soothing enough to rest in.
If you find yourself struggling to fall asleep each night, we’ve provided some useful tips below to help you achieve the perfect sleep environment at home.
Finding the Right Temperature
Hot, cold and draughty rooms can seriously impact your sleep. Your body temperature peaks in the evening and then drops to its lowest levels when you’re asleep, so a cool 16-18°C is thought to be an ideal temperature for your bedroom. Temperatures over 24°C are likely to impact your sleep and so it is ideal to invest in a fan during the warmer months.
Turn the Lights Out
When we see light, our bodies assume it’s time to wake up. When it’s dark, our bodies release melatonin, which helps us to drift off. If you’re a light-sleeper and those bright summer mornings wake you up easily, it might be time to consider investing in an eye mask or even black out curtains.
It goes without saying that loud noises can interrupt our sleep. One of the best ways to combat this is with double glazing, as it muffles sounds from outside. However you can also use foam ear plugs, which are particularly effective in the summer months when you are more likely to have the windows open each night.
Comfort Is Best
Your bed is by far the most significant element of a good night’s sleep. It is near impossible to get a good night’s rest on an old and uncomfortable bed. Mattresses that lack comfort, space and support are likely to leave you waking up tired and achy, and will also have a significant impact on your partner’s sleep too.
So why let an old mattress get in the way of the best quality night’s sleep that you deserve?
