  1. Always prefer to sleep in a dim lighted room because bright light can create a disturbance in the performance of the pineal gland and disrupt your physiological clock. This may in turn increase the risk of developing cancer and other physiological disorders.

    You will be amazed to know that all forms of life evolved in response to certain patterns of light and darkness, known as Circadian Rhythms. Today’s electrical lighting has significantly affected the physiological clock resulting in mal functioning of these Rhythms. Light rays curves their way in to the brain through your optic nerves and signals the biological clock that it’s time to get up and prepare your body for action

    Hence, remember to switch off all the lights and close your bedroom door properly before going to bed. Try to keep even the tiniest glow away from your physiological clock while you sleep.
  2. Room Temperature not higher than 70 degrees F is best for sleeping:

    It’s high time you get rid of your personal choices and take a more practical approach towards sleep. Keeping your bedroom too warm may lead to sleep disturbances. According to Research s the optimum room temperature for sleep is quite cool, between 60 – 68 degrees F. When you sleep, your body temperature tends to drop to its lowest level. Scientists believe that a cooler bedroom is most conducive to sleep as it mimics excellently to the change in your body’s temperature.
  3. Keep electro-magnetic fields (EMFs) off your bedroom:

    Electro-magnetic fields are known to disrupt the pineal gland, hampering the formation of melatonin & serotonin hormones. For detecting EMFs you need a Gauss Meter. Experts even recommend pulling the circuit breaker down before you sleep to kill all electro-magnetic fields.
  4. Do not keep alarm clocks and other electrical devices near your bed:

    If there is no possible option to avoid keeping mobile phones and other electrical devises in the bed room, keep them as far as possible from your bed. Remove the clock and other appliances off the view. They will only add to your worries and haste as you attend them throughout the night.
  5. Always use alarm clocks with softer tone:

    Agree to it or not, but it is really stressful for your body to be suddenly jolted awake. A melodious alarm clock will definitely help you to get up slowly and conveniently. If you’re getting enough sleep regularly, an alarm clock is not even necessary.
  6. Avoid doing mundane activities on bed:

    If you are in the habit of watching TV or doing office work in bed, please stop it today. Doing these activities in bed will not only make it harder for you to relax but will also drift you off your sleep by giving you mental alertness.
  7. Separate bedrooms:

    For many people sharing a bed with pets or a partner can impair sleep significantly. If you find that your bed fellows are playing a role in keeping you off your sleep, considering a separate bedroom can be a brilliant idea.
