Everyone experiences bouts of insomnia. But if you have chronic insomnia, it may be affecting your mood or productivity. Wake up refreshed in your Dallas apartment with these bedroom hacks designed to improve your sleep.
Have an Assortment of Pillows
Your pillow has a big impact on how you sleep. And the fact is that some nights you might be more comfortable with a firm pillow; other nights, you may prefer a soft pillow. If your pillow heats up during the night, it’s also helpful if you can replace it with a cool pillow you haven’t used that night. These are all the reasons why you should have an assortment of pillows available on your bed. If you wake up in discomfort, you can easily switch out your pillow with another one without even getting out of bed.
Make Your Bed With Layers
Dallas nighttime temperatures can be unpredictable. To ensure your body temperature is optimal for sleep, make your bed with layers. Include a light sheet, a light blanket, a heavier blanket and a comforter. With all these layers to choose from in the middle of the night, you’ll be able to effortlessly cover yourself with just the right one.
Use Light-Blocking Shades
Dallas city lights are beautiful, but they won’t help you get to sleep at night. Hang light-blocking shades on your Dallas apartment windows to ensure a good night’s rest.
Use an Oil Burner
Use an oil burner in your bedroom to improve sleep. Essential oils like vetiver and lavender have both been shown to promote sleep. Organic compounds in vetiver help calm the brain so it glides into sleep mode. Lavender relaxes the entire body, so fulfilling sleep comes much easier. If you dislike those scents, experiment with others you find more pleasant.
Enjoy Walnuts Before Bedtime
Walnuts are high in melatonin, which is what your body produces to help you fall asleep. Keep a small jar of walnuts on your nightstand, so you can snack on a handful before bedtime to help you doze off fast.
