(HealthDay News) -- With the correct sleep environment comes the chance of a more serene and restful night's sleep.
The National Sleep Foundation offers these suggestions toward creating the correct sleep environment:
Use earplugs to muffle disturbing sounds. Or use a device that emits "white" noise to mask outside sounds.
Keep your room cool. Don't wear heavy sleepwear if you tend to get too warm.
Keep your room dark, but make sure you are exposed to plenty of bright light or sunlight during the day.
Make sure your bed is big enough to promote comfortable sleep, and that your mattress, pillows and blankets are comfortable.
If your partner snores or has disrupted sleep, devise an arrangement to make sure you both get the sleep you need.
