Health - Create the perfect sleep environment

Do you have a sleep problem?

Bedrooms should be used only for sleeping not working, eating or watching television.

Your brain needs to associate your bedroom with sleep.

If you have a television or computer in the room, then it is time to de-clutter and move them elsewhere.

You should aim to make your bedroom a dark, quiet and peaceful environmentin which to rest after a hard days work.

To do this:

Make sure you have a bed which is comfortable. Mattresses are supposed to be changed every 10 years. If the mattress sags, put a board under it until you can afford to buy a new one. You will also be doing your back a favour!
Fresh sheets and pillow cases may also help
If the morning sun is causing you problems, invest in heavier curtains or lining, or wear an eye mask
If your partner snores, buy some soft ear plugs
Keep the room at a decent temperature, and well ventilated not too hot in the summer or too cold in winter
