Avoid a Sleep Disorder by Making Your Bedroom Sleep-Friendly

Part of Sleep Disorders For Dummies Cheat Sheet

If you believe that you are suffering from a sleep disorder, there could be many causes. Before you launch an investigation into the possible physical causes, check out your bedroom. Your bedroom should be reserved for a night of peaceful rest. Dedicate your bedroom to sleep (yes, and romance). Here’s how:

  • If your pets sleep in the room with you, get them their own little beds.

  • Install light-blocking shades or curtains.

  • Keep the clock out of sight so you can’t watch it during the night.

  • Make sure your mattress and bed linens are comfortable.

  • Take the TV and computer out of the bedroom.

  • Use indirect lighting.
