Can your home help you sleep?

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…

  1. 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.
  2. Clear out the clutter. Clutter induces stress and reduces sleep. So clear out those dishes, the laundry and mail for a better night sleep.
  3. Keep the TV out of the bedroom. It does not help you sleep is keeps you awake.
  4. Keep your bedroom your bedroom. Multitasking your bedroom as an office or exercise room leads to sleep time distractions that you don’t need.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
