Did you know that nearly 70 million Americans are not getting quality sleep? Well, at Schrader Mattress, we have gathered five things that you can do that will immediately enhance your sleep quality, and help you feel refreshed every single day.

  1. There are dozens of apps out there today that will track your sleep and tell you when you should sleep, and when you should wake up. These apps are so intelligent that after they track your sleep patterns, they will give you an ideal wake-up time.
  2. It is very important to make sure you bedroom is dark while you sleep. It has been proven that people who sleep in darker rooms have greater levels of melatonin, which is a hormone that helps regulate sleep.
  3. Adding white noise to your sleep can help you enhance your sleep quality. This can be from a machine or even adding a fan somewhere in your room.
  4. An excellent way to help your sleep is to add a wake-up light to your room. These lights replicate the sunrise, so you wake up naturally and gradually in the morning, which enhances overall sleep quality.
  5. Painting your walls a different color such as reds, purples, browns, or greys can help increase sleep quality. Of course, the best proven color to enhance sleep quality is blue, followed by yellow, then green.
