To some people, a good night’s sleep may seem like a far-fetched dream, but if you take steps to engage in a process that works, you may be surprised.
If this sounds overly simplified, you may be overthinking the whole sleep thing. After decades of researching, reading, studying, writing about sleep, doctors and scientists have discovered many new things, for sure. But one thing that hasn’t changed much and most of them will agree, that you need 8 to 8.5 hours of deep, restful sleep each night to have a healthy functioning brain and body.
Of course there are reasons why many people have a problem with sleeping that long or sleeping well when they do finally nod off. So the goal here is to suggest 6 simple steps to follow that will all but guarantee a night of blissful slumber.

Cover your windows, darken your bedroom, and turn the thermostat down
When your sleep chamber is too light, your brain thinks it’s time to wake up. The secret is dark and cool. Keep your room temperature at 70 degrees or lower. After all, you have that wonderful bamboo bedding and weighted blanket.
Drink warm chamomile, passionflower, or peppermint tea before bed
Many people think a glass of wine or sip of brandy is just the thing before bed, but while it may initially help you relax, you’re destined to wake up a few hours later and very likely won’t get back to sleep easily. Try warm tea or a glass of milk, not or cold. There are many tea varieties and you may have fun finding your favorite.
Turn off all digital devices at least 1 hour before retiring
This may be the most difficult habit to get into, but it works. Giving your brain a reprieve from the blue light of tv, phones, and computers sets the scene for better sleep. Try some deep breathing or meditation before bedtime.
Sleep in the nude (your weighted blanket will keep you snug)
This may be the easiest new habit, but it might not be so easy for some. Actually your skin pores breathe much better when not confined by clothing, which oddly enough means you sleep cooler and warmer. Your body self-regulates better. Also you’ll love the silky softness of your bamboo sheets against your skin..
