Your bedroom is one of the most important factors when it comes to getting a great night's sleep. A calm, tranquil bedroom free from clutter, junk and technology will help you become more relaxed and rested.
Your bedroom is your personal sanctuary. Never bring your work life into the bedroom - keep lap tops and mobile phones out of this room - it should be a technology free zone.
The ideal temperature for good sleep is slightly cool so keep windows open, change your duvet with the seasons and use a fan in the bedroom. In fact, the white noise from the fan can also help to create a white noise effect which can cut out distracting background noise, especially if your partner snores.
Rugs and heavy curtains will help to reduce other environmental noises which might keep you awake at night.
Lighting is personal to each individual - you may want to consider black out blinds, especially if you live near street lights, or you might like to wake up to some light in the room. Try this out and see what works best for you. If you choose black out blinds make sure that you open them as soon as you wake to help prepare yourself for the day ahead.
Aromatherapy oils such as lavender and eucalyptus can help to create a calm and soothing sleep environment.
Pets can be great bedtime companions and help us feel secure at night but they can disrupt sleep patterns - it is always preferable to give them their own place to sleep.
Invest in a good quality bed and mattress which supports your spine and body contours. Mattresses should be changed every seven years - when was the last time you changed yours? If you're struggling to remember it might be time for a change.
