1. Give Your Bedroom a Sleep MakeoverMany American adults do not get the recommended seven to eight hours per night of sleep. What can you do if you have trouble falling or staying asleep? Here are a few good basic steps to getting a better night’s sleep.Install blackout drapes to block outdoor light sources (like streetlights and passing cars) at night for a more restful sleep.Move or cover light-pollution sources within the bedroom when possible, such as nightlights, hall lights, clocks and baby monitors.Turn off the television, computer and other screens at least an hour before bed. These light sources can make falling asleep difficult.Invest in a comfortable mattress and bedding made of natural fibers such as cotton, wool and linen.Find cotton and linen sheets in the Houzz Shop
Many bedroom products contain chemical flame retardants called PBDEs, which have been banned in several U.S. states and other countries because they interfere with nervous system development, causing problems with memory and attention. The Environmental Protection Agency says that its toxicology database on PBDEs “is inadequate to truly understand the risk." Given these uncertainties, it’s smart to keep PBDEs out of your sleeping space.A few general things to consider:Look for beds and bedding made with natural fibers such as cotton, wool, and hemp, which don't catch fire easily or burn quickly and are less likely to be treated with toxic flame retardants.Not sure how to find PBDE-free mattresses and bedding? Find a list at ewg.org/pbdefree.Ikea no longer uses PBDEs in any of its furnishings or accessories.
