Taking control of your sleep

The experts at Tuffs University make the following recommendations for getting a better night’s sleep.

Arrange your bedroom so it is sleep friendly, one that is dark, cool and quiet. Use a mattress and pillow that are not too hard or too soft for your body.

Make your bedroom one that is used specifically for sleeping or sex. Keep your home office separate from your sleeping quarters.

Leave the television in the living room and the computer to the office. Each one excites your mind and will keep you stimulated and awake.

Getting a good night’s sleep will help keep you mentally and physically sharp plus help protect you from illness.
