You have the best chance of enjoying a restful and restorative night’s sleep by making sure that your room is at the right temperature to optimize sleeping, the light levels are extremely low and noise is kept to a minimum, or that you find your own unique noise level that helps you fall asleep (for instance sleep music).
Darker is Better
The intrusion of light into your room or that created by electronic devices will almost inevitably disturb your sleep. The Blue Light emitted from devices like laptops, LED TVs, smartphones, and others have been proven to inhibit the production of melatonin – and that is the brain’s way of telling the body it should enter a sleep state. If you cannot achieve total darkness then a modern, comfortable sleep mask is an option.
As we fall asleep and enter into the deeper stages of sleep we are exposed to all sorts of environmental noise, and it appears that our preferences and tolerances for noise are uniquely our own. experimentation will help you find yours. Some sleepers require total silence to fall asleep, others will enjoy the sound of rain or music. However, if you find that environmental noise is preventing you from getting a good night’s sleep then a pair of noise-canceling headphones or earplugs will solve the problem. If it is too quiet, then a soothing playlist can also help you fall asleep.

Comfort is Crucial
Trying to get a good night’s sleep on and uncomfortable mattress is pointless. Even if you do get sleep the likelihood is that you will wake up feeling achey and not as well rested as you would like. Nest bedding’s customer performance reviews will help you to find the perfect mattress for you to get a great night’s sleep.
The right room temperature will help you fall asleep. Recent studies indicate that our bodies experience a slight drop in core temperature (2–3 degrees) just before we drift off. The initial, quick drop is part of the human body’s inbuilt ‘Circadian Rhythm’, which governs when we sleep – and can help us fall asleep, and reach the restorative deep stages of sleep. If the room is overly warm the drop-off can have trouble initiating sleep. On the other hand, a temperature that is too low will cause you to wake up during the night. Experts agree that the optimum temperature is between 60–67℉.
