Lifestyle Collection: Tips for Your Best Sleep

Studies have shown that people sleep better when their bedroom is optimized for light, noise, temperature and comfort. Since sleep is tied to health and wellness, a bedroom environment that promotes sleep can also improve how you feel while you are awake.

Optimize Sound for Better Sleep

  • A quiet room or relaxing sounds can help you wind down and fall asleep faster.
  • Soothing music may help alleviate stress, creating a peaceful, microenvironment for sleep.
  • A consistent background sound can help mask environmental sounds or sudden noises that might cause you to wake up.

Support Your Sleep/Wake Cycle

  • Optimizing light exposure during sleep and wake routines helps support your natural sleep/wake cycle so you feel sleepy at night and stay alert during the day.
  • Ambient light in the evening helps encourage the natural increase in melatonin that occurs close to sleep onset.
  • Exposure to artificial light in the morning may help improve wellbeing, mood and cognitive performance.
  • Curated sleep/wake lighting may help promote good sleep.
