6. Optimize Your Bedroom For Sleep
Let’s start with your bedroom temperature. If it’s too hot or too cold, you won’t sleep well. Find a temperature that feels comfortable to you and keep it there. Most people prefer a temperature between 66 and 70 degrees.
In addition to finding the ideal temperature, it’s also helpful to optimize your lighting situation. If it’s too bright in your room, it might wake you up at night. It might be helpful to get blackout curtains to darken your room.
If you’re a light sleeper, it might also be helpful to find background noise to listen to while you sleep. You can opt for a white noise machine, nature sounds, or even turn on a fan for background noise.
Lastly, make sure your mattress, sheets, and pillow are allowing you to feel most comfortable. A new mattress or pillow can do wonders for your quality of sleep.
