Get a better night's sleep with Apartment Therapy's tips for a quicker trip to dream land.
Set your thermostat to 65 to 68 degrees to keep from waking up in the middle of the night hot and sweaty.
Do not eat within three hours of going to bed because it makes it difficult for your body to be able to sleep if it's digesting.
Pillows should be replaced every one to three years to prevent the skin irritants and allergens that can be trapped inside them.
Don't keep a television in your bedroom because the noise and light they give off can inhibit your sleep.
Extra weight can lead to sleep apnea, which can wake you up because you'll have trouble breathing while you sleep. By staying in shape and sticking to a healthy weight, you'll avoid that.
If you create a bedtime routine and stick to it, your body and mind will wind down more quickly.
Finally, if your mattress isn't comfortable, get a new one! The power of a good mattress on your sleep can't be overestimated.
