We have been going through some tough situations, and the first thing that you need the most is a pleasant evening’s sleep, it is essential for good health. Yet, remove that sleep, and it affects your heart, stomach, bowels and mind-set.
With Ken being up the entire night several times every week, it has flipped around our life around and. So, you can imagine, I would do anything to help him get a good sleep then I can get a pleasant evening’s sleep!
We’ve attempted the usual suggestions – going to bed at the same time each night (in any event we are consistent at getting there before 12 PM), no caffeine, no liquor, hot milk, snacks, no snacks, warm socks, and ear plugs. Here are a couple of other things we attempted or are trying.
- Make Your Bedroom A Calm And Soothing Sanctuary
Make a climate conducive for sleep with colors best patch for getting good sleep. I read that colors have a psychological impact and to try not to stimulate colors like red. Pink, cool greens, light blue, off whites and beige are calming and soothing colors. So I painted our walls the shade of the Mediterranean Sea, and the ceiling is the shade of the sand sea shore. We even added some willows in a larger than average vase to bring in a little zen of the forest
- Dispose Of Clutter And Distractions
Eliminate all messiness, papers, and office supplies. You need to associate your room with relaxation and not be distracted with work. This also means removing the TV, which was a hard one for me because I found the TV helped me to unwind and will sleep. I adored watching a mindless show on decorating or cooking before I put out the lights. It put me in my upbeat spot! Yet, Ken was having so numerous terrible nights it put him in his cranky spot. However, out of desperation for him to get a good sleep, the TV was eliminated. In any case, he still experienced difficulty sleeping.
- A Good Mattress, Pillow, And Bedding
This is personal inclination. Our 2 guest rooms are brimming with brand new too-fat, too-thin, feather and froth pillows in the search to find the ideal cushion. In the end, Ken has returned to using his old one, and I have another one, yet have neck pain. So that search is still on-going.
Our mattress is awesome however; we love the adaptive padding topper over a supportive mattress.
We have a scope of blankets and quilts to go from the warm days of summer to the virus winter ones. We discovered quilts were too warm, and layers of blankets work best. On the off chance that you get too warm, it is easy to remove a layer.
- Keep Your Room Dark And Cool
We invested in room darkening blinds that also give insulation from sound or the virus. The thermostat is set to automatically bring down the temperature to – 17°C (62°F) for the evening. This does improve sleeping.
