According to HouseLogic your house can help you sleep better. Here are a few tips to make your house more sleep friendly or help you pick out a sleep-friendly house to buy…
- Keep is dark. Use blackout shades. Find windows that point away from the light. Use red light bulbs before bed; it helps your body start to take on melatonin.
- Clear out the clutter. Clutter induces stress and reduces sleep. So clear out those dishes, the laundry and mail for a better night sleep.
- Keep the TV out of the bedroom. It does not help you sleep is keeps you awake.
- Keep your bedroom your bedroom. Multitasking your bedroom as an office or exercise room leads to sleep time distractions that you don’t need.
- Soundproof the room. Just like light, sound can keep you awake at light. Find a house with a back bedroom, away from the street traffic or find a way to muffle the noise.
- Improve your air. If it’s easier to breathe, it’s easier to sleep. High levels of carbon dioxide can hinder your concentration the next morning.
