How to Sleep Better
Everything from temperature, light, to sound, humidity, and the materials on which you sleep can affect your sleep environment. These core elements should be hit in order to set the scene for proper sleep.
Sound for Sleep
A sleep sound machine can make a big difference if you live in a city or if there's snoring in the room. You should try to get as little sound as possible for sleep, and if sound is unavoidable, a sleep sound machine might help. Your brain can quickly tune out the low fan sounds on a sleep sound machine, which creates a deep, consistent sound. When you have an uncontrollable environmental sound, your brain will quickly ignore the simplicity and consistency of the sound.
Light for Sleep
Minimal light is the best for sleep. Use amber-tinted glasses before bed to avoid blue light if it is unavoidable. Blue light fools the brain into thinking it is still awake.
Optimal Sleep Temperature
Our bodies naturally reduce their temperatures during the sleeping process in order to facilitate consistent sleep cycles. By lowering bedroom temperatures between 60- and 67-degrees Fahrenheit, you can assist your body in reaching this condition faster and sleeping more quickly and smoothly.
Optimal Sleep Surface
