4 Steps to a Better Night’s Sleep
Make these easy adjustments, and you’ll be on your way to a full 8 hours every night.
You don’t need us to tell you you’re probably not getting enough sleep every night. While we don’t have a magic spell we can cast to make you fall asleep quicker and wake up more refreshed, we can recommend some things to help you stack the deck in your favor.
Darkness is Key
It’s hard to get a great night’s sleep if your room isn’t completely dark. The good news: there are blackout shades. They block light even if you’re on the busiest street in town. Double up with blackout window panels for total darkness.
Make your bed a place that’s actually pleasant to sleep in. Being comfortable will help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. We like the Therapedic® 500 Thread Count Mattress Pad in White because not only is it comfortable, but it also has moisture management qualities, ClearFresh™ odor eliminator and stain repel. To keep you cool throughout the night, the Brookstone® Outlast® Temperature-Regulating Comforter absorbs and releases body for a restful sleep.
Block Out Noise
Construction, car horns and noisy roommates or neighbors can all cause sleep disruptions, but a white noise machine can solve that problem by masking those sounds.
Aromas derived from lavender and cedarwood can help you sleep. Plus, diffusing essential oils can bring calm to your space and give you a sense of well-being, which can also help you drift off more easily.
