A huge number of factors can influence how you sleep at night. Our bedroom should be the space in our homes that is most conducive to sleep – but sometimes, it can be the very thing that stops us from getting a good night’s rest. If you find that you’re having trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, there are a few switches you can make to your bedroom set-up that might be able to help. We go through a few of the most effective ones below.
A supportive, comfortable mattress is the most important element in your bedroom that can help – or hinder – your quest for a great night’s sleep. Here at Milton, we’ve been creating mattresses for the community for over 70 years. Comfortable right down to the price, we’ve made sure that a top-quality mattress is accessible to all – because we believe everyone deserves the best night of sleep possible. Our range of mattresses can provide varying levels of firmness and softness, so you can find the one that’s perfectly tailored to your sleeping position and ideal form of comfort.
What you put on the mattress can be very important, too. Making sure your sheets are breathable can be crucial if you generally sleep on the warmer side. On the other hand, if you find yourself struggling to sleep because you’re cold at night, getting a duvet which insulates heat, or an electric blanket, might do the trick.
Light & Noise
Minimizing light and noise when trying to sleep is one of the easiest steps you can take to make your bedroom a restful and relaxed space. Covering all those small LED lights on clocks, tv’s, and other electronics can go a long way when it comes to getting sleep. A small piece of tape or something you can cover them with when you go to bed in the evening will work. Turning your phone on silent can help reduce disturbances from the outside world. If you live in an area with noise outside, using a fan or a speaker to play some white noise can help drown them out.
