In order to enjoy a peaceful sleep you need to make your bedroom sleep friendly. Sleeping well is crucial for optimal health. Below are a few pointers on how to turn your room into a place where you can sleep comfortably.

Try to get eliminate of any unwanted noise.

Noise can disrupt anyone’s sleep easily. If you can’t block out the sounds caused by the neighbor’s dog or traffic etc, try covering it with some sleep inducing, slow-tempo music. Moreover you could even resort to earplugs if you simply like your pin drop silence when trying to sleep.

Keep your room temperature cool.

Undoubtedly the temperature of one’s bedroom affects their sleep greatly. A greater percentage of people prefer to sleep in a moderately cool room whilst a few prefer to sleep in a slightly warm room.  A room that is extremely cold or hot will only keep you from sleeping well.

Make your bed as comfortable as possible.

Your bed needs to be big enough so that whilst sleeping if you feel the need to stretch or toss around a bit, you’d be able to do it without tripping off.  Opt for a mattress and pillows that won’t leave you all sore in the morning.

Exercising during the winters requires extra precaution and is usually more demanding on your body. Even a minor decrease in core body temperature can affect your muscles enough to make them quiver and will thus impede your performance. Plus, it will also put you at risk of sustaining other severe injuries.

During this time of the year, suffering from sprains and strains is fairly common as the low temperature causes for muscles and the surrounding tissue to go cold. In order to exercise accurately during the winter, you need to accustom your body to the cold climate. To accomplish this, you should start off by working out alternatively in the gym and outside for a week or so, until you feel like your body can handle the outdoors well enough.

In the winters increase your warm up time by an additional 10 minutes. This will ensure that your muscles are properly warmed up and loosened up for the activity. Idyllically the best and safest way to exercise during the winter that will surely restrict your risk of sustaining serious injuries is to adhere to an exercise regimen all year round. This will allow your body to adapt to physical activity in general and hence will also help it to acclimatize to the cooler conditions much more quickly.
