Sleep Better This Winter by Keeping Your House Warm
When the weather cools off it’s not always easy to keep your home warm. This is particularly true in the dead of winter. Unfortunately, a cold home can make it difficult to fall asleep (and stay asleep).
Here are a few of the better ways to stay warm this winter:
· Wear socks or slippers to bed. It’s probably not something you do in the summer, but it’s an absolute must in the winter if you’re trying to keep warm. From wool socks to house slippers, cover your feet with something warm and comfortable.
· Block drafts. Do the windows in your bedroom let a cold draft in? Does air from the attic make its way into your bedroom? The first step in fixing this problem is pinpointing it. Once you know where the draft is coming from, you can then take action.
· Use a humidifier. Did you know that a humidifier can help keep your house warmer? When you add this to the fact that it can also reduce dry air during the winter, it’s easy to see why it’s so important. If you don’t have a whole-house humidifier opt for one that you can run in your bedroom while you sleep.
A cold home can take a toll on your sleeping habits, as well as your health in general. Fortunately, with these tips, it won’t be long before you’re warming your home and better enjoying the hours you spend in bed.
