End Sleepless Nights

- Monday, April 09, 2012

It does not matter where you live, in a home in the country or in an apartment in Lynchburg, VA.  If you suffer from insomnia, it can really take its toll. However, sleep aids are not always the answer. It may be where you are sleeping that is the problem.

Here are some tips that can help you get a better night’s sleep.

As the days become longer, you don’t want those rays of early morning light to steal the last few hours of sleep you need. Blackout curtains or shades block out any light.

Keeping cool at night makes for better sleeping conditions too. People sleep better when it is cooler at night, so program your thermostat between 60 and 68 degrees. You will sleep better and conserve energy.

You need to be comfortable. A new mattress may be necessary for some, but sometimes all that is needed is a mattress pad. Pillows with polyester stuffing tend to wear out after a year, so try a new pillow too.

Sometimes, soundproofing is a good idea. Try a white noise machine which can replace the sounds of outside life and neighbors.

Did you know that you should not use your bedroom as a TV room or office? When you use your bedroom for other things, your brain associates your bedroom with activities other than sleeping, which may be what’s keeping you up all night. Give your brain the chance to wind down before bed and don’t use the computer or watch TV.
