Five Tips to Get a Better Night’s Sleep
PEARL RIVER, N.Y. - As we all know, sleep is vital to a person's well-being; it affects everything from our mood and health to our communication and social interaction skills.
However, contrary to what many people think, research has shown it is not just the number of hours in bed that is important, but also, the quality of those hours spent asleep.
In order to wake up feeling energized and refreshed, getting deep, restorative sleep is crucial. Unfortunately, many factors in our everyday lives can prevent this.
To help ensure your night's sleep is all it should be, try these tips from Sally Morse, Director of Creative Services for window fashions leader Hunter Douglas, a company that provides many light- and noise-blocking solutions to enhance your quality of sleep:
? Bedtime Schedule: Going to bed at a consistent time every night will help your body establish a regular sleep pattern. Your body's sleep-wake cycle is one of the most important strategies for achieving a good night's' sleep. Keep up this routine and you'll find yourself waking up naturally without an alarm clock.
? Noise: Noise is one of the most disruptive factors that can affect the quality of sleep you're getting. Whether you live in the city or the suburbs, noise has a way of infiltrating our private spaces. Thanks to innovators at Hunter Douglas, there is a way to bring peace and quiet back into your home. The company's products are all tested and score high ratings for sound absorption, so you can rest peacefully. Rated among the highest for sound absorption of any Hunter Douglas window dressing, Vignette® Tiered™ Architella® Modern Roman Shades have rear fabric air pockets that trap air and help absorb sound energy.
By following these simple tips, a good night's sleep can't be far behind.
