Health Tip: Create a Healthy Sleep Environment

Health Tip: Create a Healthy Sleep Environment

09/26/12

(HealthDay News) -- With the correct sleep environment comes the chance of a more serene and restful night's sleep.

The National Sleep Foundation offers these suggestions toward creating the correct sleep environment:

  • Use earplugs to muffle disturbing sounds. Or use a device that emits "white" noise to mask outside sounds.
  • Keep your room cool. Don't wear heavy sleepwear if you tend to get too warm.
  • Keep your room dark, but make sure you are exposed to plenty of bright light or sunlight during the day.
  • Make sure your bed is big enough to promote comfortable sleep, and that your mattress, pillows and blankets are comfortable.
  • If your partner snores or has disrupted sleep, devise an arrangement to make sure you both get the sleep you need.
