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.
