Bedroom Comfort Affects Sleep

Do you spend your nights tossing and turning in bed? You may want to vacuum your bedroom, wash your sheets, and throw out that lumpy mattress before you reach for a sleeping pill.

Results from a survey commissioned by the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) in the US suggest that people sleep much better when their bedrooms are comfortable and clean. Sound sleepers and poor sleepers were surveyed about how the bedroom environment affected their ability to get a good night's sleep.

NSF Chief Operating Officer David Cloud said, "People reported sleeping longer hours and feeling better about going to bed when their bed was made, their sheets were fresh, and their bedroom was comfortable."

According to sleep psychologist Shelby Harris, who directs the Behavioral Sleep Medicine Program at Montefiore Sleep-Wake Disorder Center in New York, the sleep environment is an important, yet often ignored, component of a good night's sleep.
