I’m one of those unlucky people who is not good at sleeping, and I do not understand how people can sit down on a couch or a bed and immediately drift off for the night.
I have never been lucky in this area and I do not believe that this will ever change.
I have found a few things that help me to sleep better, though. The main thing that I know I will always need is a super cool and dry environment to sleep in. I love to have ice cold air all around me so that I can snuggle up in my blankets and feel nice and safe and secure, and additionally, it helps when the air is moving to some degree instead of staying stagnant. I love the feeling of a breeze across my body so I can hide from it in my warm bed, but lastly, I can tell you that I absolutely need some kind of blackout curtain in order to sleep good. I cannot get a single wink unless my room is perfectly dark. Thank God, it turns out that there are blackout insulating curtains which helped me in both of these areas. With my blackout insulating curtains I’m able to keep my bedroom cooler all day long by blocking out the sunlight rather than having pounding hot conventional heat entering my bedroom all afternoon, which forces the air conditioning system to work harder during the day, I can prevent the heat from rising in the first place. My blackout curtains do an excellent job of insulating my high quality indoor air from my central AC system, and they work wonders for keeping my room elegantly dark all evening and afternoon.
