A great night’s sleep can dependon the comfort you feel in your bedroom environment. – National Sleep Foundation
At a Behavioral Sleep Medicine Program, participants learn that the sleep environment is a major component to a restful night’s sleep. In a survey conducted by the National Sleep Foundation, people who make their bed daily more often have a better night’s sleep. Fresh sheets, dark and cool rooms, and comfortable mattresses and pillows also play a factor in mastering sleep comfort.
