4 Tips for Making Your Bed a Serene Place to Sleep

Last updated 6 years ago

Not much is worse than being unable to sleep when you are tired. If you are having trouble falling asleep at night, you might need to make some changes to your mattress and your bedroom atmosphere. The following tips will help you make your bedroom a peaceful place where you can easily escape into a deep and healthy sleep:

Replace Your Mattress

The mattress is a great place to start when trying to make your bedroom a more relaxing place to sleep. Find a model that gives you the firm support or the soft comfort you need to feel truly comfortable in your bed. Whether you prefer a Simmons, Dr. Breus, or Tempur-Pedic, a new mattress might be all you need to fall asleep fast.

Choose the Right Bedding

Once you have your ideal mattress, cover it with bedding that adds to the serenity of the room. Choose soothing colors, like white, grey, or baby blue, and sheets that feel great against your skin. You should also buy pillows that enhance your sleeping position.

Remove Distractions

If you spend each night watching television in bed or using your smart phone, try to get rid of these stimulating distractions. Give yourself at least an hour without electronics, so your mind can relax enough to allow you to fall asleep.

Block Out the Light

Any light that filters in through your windows can keep you from getting a good night of sleep. Choose window treatments that give you complete control over the light, so you can immerse yourself in darkness when it’s time for bed.
