Sleep is very essential to body. It aids our body to rejuvenate and repair body cells the different systems of our body to function well. In short, it is how our body repairs itself. With enough sleep, irritability, moodiness, dizziness, and unattractive physical features like eye bags, rapid skin aging, and pimples could be avoided or minimized. However, sometimes, several factors such as those that are found in our environment could make us deprived of sleep. But just like any other problems around, there are some solutions for them.
One thing that could prevent you from getting those precious long hours of undisturbed sleep is your environment. If you are living in a dormitory, the people you are with might be depriving you of sleep, maybe intentionally, but unintentionally most of the time. If you are a student, your study time and your roommate’s study time might not coincide. For instance, you study during the day while he or she is most comfortable studying at night. You might be the type who cannot sleep with a single light shining inside your room, but you are too shy to ask your roommate to turn it off because he or she is still studying. However, in this case, learn how to talk to him or her. And from there, both of you could compromise. You could choose to just buy some sleep mask or your roommate could decide to study outside your room when it is really late and it is already time to sleep. If both could not compromise and the situation is hardly fixable between the two of you, then it is already time for you to look for another place to stay in.
Another thing that could affect your sleep is your room’s appearance. Brightly colored rooms, such as those that are painted with orange, yellow, and bright green might just bring energy inside the room. These are basically energetic colors that are not necessary in the bedroom. When painting a room, make it light and cozy. Choose colors that are calming and relaxing like blue, light or mint green, and lavender. Also, do not conduct any activities in your bed aside from sleeping. Your school works and office works should be done on the table, not in the bed. This would condition your brain that when you are in your bed, it is time to sleep.
Lastly, a good and clean mattress and pillow could help induce sleep. Make sure that it is cleaned regularly and free of any bed bugs. You should also maintain regular sleeping and waking schedule. This would help you set your circadian rhythm or your body clock and would help you get sleep faster.
