I’m one of those unfortunate people that is not great at sleeping, and I do not understand how people can lay down on a couch or a bed and instantaneously drift off for the night.
- I’ve never been that lucky in this area and I do not think that will ever change.
I have found a few things that help me to sleep better, though. The main thing that I know I always need is a super cool and dry environment to sleep in. I like to have ice cold air all around me so that I can snuggle up in my blankets and feel very safe and secure, and additionally, it helps when the air is moving to some degree instead of staying stagnant. I care about the feeling of a breeze across my body so I can hide from it in my warm bed! Lastly, I can tell you that I really need some kind of blackout curtain in order to sleep properly. I can’t 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 day, which forces the air conditioning to work harder at night, I can prevent the heat from rising in the first place, my blackout curtains do a good job to insulate my high quality indoor air from our central AC system, and they work wonders for keeping my room wonderfully dark all evening and morning.
