Health Tip: Create the Right Environment for Sleep

Here are suggestions

(HealthDay News) -- It's important to create the right environment to help you fall asleep and stay asleep.

The National Sleep Foundation offers these guidelines:

  • Keep your room quiet or use earplugs or a white noise machine.
  • Keep your room at the right temperature -- not too hot and on the cooler side.
  • Make sure the room is dark.
  • Allow plenty of room in your bed to stretch out and get comfortable. Choose a comfortable mattress and pillow.
  • Address issues that affect your sleep, such as snoring or television watching, with your partner.
