Many people are searching for ways to improve their quality of sleep here are 4 of the hacks from an article on KSL.
Check your sleeping surface– Do you wake up with muscle pain? Or does it take forever to get comfortable at night? If you are not getting the hours of sleep needed each night it might be time to invest in a better mattress or even a better pillow. Do your research! Your time spent on finding the right mattress for you will be well spent. Also look for hypoallergenic pillows. Suffering from allergies spread from pillow stuffing or cases can also keep an adult or child up at night.
No Gadgets in the bedroom – Do you or your child spend time watching TV or playing on devices at night? It is time to say NO to devices in the bedroom. The blue light and active noises emitted from television and handheld devices can disrupt melatonin production. The decrease in the sleep producing hormone can make it difficult for a child or adult to fall asleep.
Check the Temperature – Lower bedroom temperatures helps decrease the body’s core temperature which can help a person fall asleep. So make sure you have a fan or a low temperature on the thermostat.
