Too many people spend all of their time choosing sleep aids to help them achieve a more restful sleep, but forget that their sleep environment must also be prepared ahead of time. It doesn’t matter how comfortable your mattress is, if your bedroom is not climate controlled you will have trouble sleeping in it.
It is very important that a sleep environment be well ventilated and temperature controlled. Most people find that they sleep more soundly in a cool room where the air is free to circulate. When considering sleep aids, don’t forget to take temperature and humidity into account!
