Terry Cralle , RN, believes our bedrooms can be part of the problem and that re-evaluating our sleeping spaces can be a drug-free way to treat insomnia, reports Forbes.
The first step of auditing a bedroom for optimal rest is to remove anything we don’t need because clutter can cause stress and anxiety. This even includes items we store under the bed. “Even though it’s out of sight, it’s still distracting. If you are short on storage space, only store sleep-related items there (bed sheets, linens, and pillows),” Cralle says.
