Sleep plays an important role in your physical health and emotional well-being. That’s why the benefits of good sleep should never be underestimated; getting a proper rest on a regular basis isn’t just a good idea, it’s an essential one. At Allied Services, Inc., we care about the comfort and well-being of your entire family and that’s why we’ve put together a list of tips to help you get a better night’s sleep.
1. Prepare the RoomIn order to get a good night’s sleep, it’s important that you clear your room of distractions. Keeping your bedroom clean and organized can help to declutter your mind and give you less to think about as you climb into bed. We also recommend removing stimuli such as cell phones, computers, and television. Shut off these devices at least an hour before you plan to sleep because the light from these devices limits the amount of melatonin (the sleep hormone) your body releases, which means it will take longer to fall asleep.
2. Prepare the Temperature
The perfect sleeping temperature for sleeping is different for everyone. In general, cooler temperatures (around 67-72 degrees) are optimal for sleeping. Your body’s temperature decreases during sleep, and a cool, but not cold, room will help you settle into and maintain sleep throughout the night. If your current system isn’t keeping you comfortable, work with your air conditioning contractor to see how your HVAC system can create a more enjoyable atmosphere in your bedroom(s).
3. Prepare the Air
The air quality is the final piece of the great sleep puzzle. Pay attention to the way the air in your bedroom smells and feels. Is it dirty? Does it smell? Is it stale? The professionals at Allied can install specialized air filters to clean the polluted air within your home. This will leave you with clean and healthy air to breathe while you sleep, so you wake up well-rested.
