At Closet & Storage Concepts of Massachusetts we can help you get your closet under control, but we also care about how you sleep in the bedroom that is connected to your closet as well. Here are a few tips and tricks that might help you get a better night’s sleep!
Skip The Bedtime Snack
Many studies have shown that eating food and/or drinking alcohol right before bed can cause serious issues falling asleep. As the body tries to process the sugars in your food, it is working to digest and that can inadvertently keep your body from fully relaxing. If you must eat before bed, try eating something light with natural sugars such as fruit.
Lose The Electronics
Before bed, it’s always a good practice to shut down your electronics or move them out of site, not just because they are distracting but also because the blue light that emanates from electronics induces wakefulness. There are some apps that will reduce the blue light in your phone as the night goes on, allowing your eyes to relax as bed-time draws near.
Make a Tomorrow To-Do List
A lot of times it can be hard to fall asleep because you have a million things running through your head that need to be done the following day. Keeping a notepad by your bed for writing things down can be a great help when you need to let go of these thoughts so you can fall asleep at night.
Sometimes your sleeplessness can be fixed by simply changing positions. Re-orient yourself so that your head is facing a different direction than normal, so your feet are where your head normally is or so that you’re sleeping on a different side of the bed than normal. It can even help to simply leave the room and try to sleep on a couch or a chair in a different room. You may not sleep through the night on the couch, but it could help you get over the sleepless hump!
Reserve Your Bedroom For Sleeping
Along the same lines as removing your phone from your bedroom, it is also important to keep in mind that your bedroom is for sleeping above all else. If you have a home office set up in your bedroom, it may be worth looking for somewhere else because that could be the culprit behind your sleepless night. Your bedroom needs to be a relaxing sanctuary for sleep, and allowing the stress of your work life to enter that room will seriously threaten your ability to have a good night’s sleep.
