- Consider using white noise machines or soothing nature sounds to drown out disruptive sounds and create a peaceful ambiance.
2. Light Management
- Install blackout curtains or invest in a sleep mask to block out unwanted light and promote deeper, more restful sleep.
- Limit exposure to screens and bright lights before bedtime to signal to your body that it's time to wind down and prepare for sleep.
3. Comfortable Bedding
- Select bedding materials that are soft, breathable, and conducive to a comfortable sleeping environment.
- Experiment with different pillows and mattress firmness to find the ideal combination that supports your body and promotes restful sleep.
