Comment of the Week
“Sleep hygiene doesn’t necessarily mean sleeping in a cold, pitch-black bedroom. That doesn’t work for everyone. Total darkness makes me feel disoriented, like I’m floating in a vacuum. I’m more comfortable with enough night glow coming into the room to give it a bit of vague definition. I also need it to be warm enough in the room that I don’t require a lot of blankets or quilts. I wear warm slippers in the evening about three-fourths of the year. That’s because I’ll never get to sleep if I go to bed with cold feet. Conversely, I’ve read that you should be almost uncomfortably cool in order to sleep well. Um, no thanks. I need to be warm without being weighted down by a lot of covers.
These are just some of the things that work for me, although they’re contrary to what sleep experts suggest. Since good sleep is crucial, we should all take the time to figure out what works best for each of us instead of just accepting the word of sleep experts as being gospel.”
– Good comment, Skeezix.
