A very good quality of sleep can be achieved by observing the following points:
The bedroom should be as dark as possible.
It should be as quiet as possible.
The air temperature should rather be cool (57-65 °F) and the bedroom well ventilated.
Modern bed systems (mattress, slatted frame, bed frame) provide optimal support for the body and the sensitive spine.
A warm blanket should be used in winter and a cool one in summer.
Feet and shoulders should be covered while sleeping. Some people therefore wear socks and a top.
Most of the body heat is also dissipated through the head when asleep – in winter it would make sense to wear a hat.
As few electronics as possible should be placed beside the bed / in the bedroom.
Mobile phones or any other equipment which continuously measures body values should be banished from the bedroom at night. This also applies to mobile phones in "just" flight mode. See the book recommendation in the right column.
According to radiesthesia human beings should avoid sleeping on a water vein or on other forms of earth radiation.
Do not eat heavy meals just before going to bed.
Don’t drink caffeinated drinks in the late afternoon and evening.
Sporting activities should be avoided shortly before going to bed.
Going to bed and getting up in the morning at regular times benefits the organism.
It makes sense to lie down as soon as the first signs of tiredness appear.
In case of difficulty in falling asleep, gentle natural sounds in the background can help.
It is easier to fall asleep after sex thanks to the various hormonal substances which the body produces.
Anyone who wakes up before the alarm goes off should use this opportunity to get up.
Anyone who usually wakes up feeling exhausted should use a sleep phase alarm clock.
aXbo has already taken all of these sleep hygiene factors into account in the design of their alarm clock:
» Gentle wake-up in the best phase
» Chill-out/falling asleep sounds
» Display switches to sleep mode
» Data exchange only when movement occurs...and the transmission power is almost too little to measure
» Battery & mains operation
