Tip #13: Upgrading your sleeping environment

Tip #13: Upgrading your sleeping environment

Let me introduce you to a question which will probably sound familiar from vacations: “Where will we sleep?”. Well, this question is even more relevant regarding your day-to-day life, as your sleeping environment has a significant impact on your sleeping quality. 

A well-designed sleeping environment should contain the following: 

  • A temperature controlled room, adjusted to the season and your personal preferences.
  • Regulated humidity levels, maintaining the room as one you would be comfortable to stay in for the next few hours, hopefully 8…
  • Try to create a quiet area around your bed, starting by choosing a quiet room in your home, choosing a good noise-reducing window, turning your phone’s silence mode on, turning off the TV or any source of noise that was in use before going to sleep, and actually, anything else that crosses your mind while reading this tip.
  • In order to make sure your bedroom is ready for you to sleep in, take a moment to create a fully dark space. We might think of darkness as the least of our sleeping worries, but light, and especially blue light during your sleep can trick the brain into thinking it's daytime, causing the body to stop releasing melatonin (the sleep hormone) and damage the circadian rhythms. 

Without a carefully thought out sleep environment, we risk sleep quality & sleep disruption, which can be quite significant. Sleep continuity is critical for body recovery, including tissue regeneration, wound healing and a well rested mind.
