Your bedroom should be a personal haven that you look forward to curling up in each night. Create it to be relaxed and inviting by choosing soft, soothing colors, clearing out clutter or anything else that doesn’t promote what bedrooms are made for. Televisions, computers and laundry interrupt sleep and romance so don’t bring them in.
Your sleep hormone, melatonin is interrupted by light. Keep your bedroom as dark as possible to promote sleep. Consider room darkening shades, or wear a comfortable eye mask if you want that night light on. If you r room is dark and you wake up easier when there is light consider an alarm clock that shines light to wake you or set a timer on your bedside lamp so it turns on a few minutes before your alarm goes off.
