Now that it is a new year, there’s never a better time to set forth some new personal goals along with some health goals for 2018. Since sleep is so closely correlated with overall health, making some bed time adjustments or changes may set forth a better you for the new year. We here at Spring Air feel that implementing some of these suggestions will ensure you are sleeping better in 2018!
Here are our top 3 suggestions:
Listen to Classical Music: if you are accustomed to either watching TV in bed, or playing on your smart phone before bed, it might be hard to transition into a silent, dark room and expect to fall asleep. Many alarm clocks have the capability to also play music that’s on the radio – so listen to your local classical music station in the dark when you are settling down. Now, you may not want this music to be playing all night long, so set it on a time to shutoff 30-45 minutes in. While classical music has a calming effect on most people, it might not be up everyone’s alley to incorporate classical music before hitting the sack. Another variation of listening to music, would be investing in a sound machine. Sound machines give you a variety of different (non-musical) sounds to that promote relaxation – some settings would include the sound of the ocean, running brook, and white noise.
