6 things you need for a relaxing bedroom and perfect sleep
The Right Pillow and Mattress
Find the right pillow for your sleeping style. For example, if you sleep on your stomach more, find a flatter pillow; keep your head directly on it so as not to strain your neck and head. Get as much help as you can from the experts at the pillow section in stores. And just like pillows, the right mattress that suits your body and sleeping habits is very important! It needs to support your back and spine.

A Sleep Playlist
If you’re always using your phone before bed, perhaps it’s best to put it aside and let it play you some lullabies. Curate about 30 minutes worth of calming music for yourself!
If sleeping is difficult for you, perhaps a combination of calming music and scents as well as a blackout curtain can help. Blackout curtains keep sunlight from coming it and you’ll soon be falling asleep!
