Your home. Does it sometimes feel like Grand Central Station? The continuous go-go-go of your life can be fun and exciting, but also exhausting. Plagued by daytime fatigue, difficulty concentrating, and irritability, you hide under-eye circles behind a giant mug of coffee. You don’t have to suffer! We have sleep solutions that will make the recommended 7 to 8 hours of sleep more than just a dream. Are you dreaming of better sleep? Our Season of Savings promotion offers some of Hunter Douglas’ most popular window shades with amazing benefits and savings for you! Here’s how to get some glorious shuteye amid the constant energy, motion and busyness of your everyday life.
Clean Up Light Pollution
While manmade light sources offer convenience, they disrupt the natural rhythms of nature. From the blaze of streetlights, billboards, and passing traffic, to your TV, smartphone, and iPad, light litters your bedroom. Being exposed to light at bedtime can make falling asleep–and staying asleep–tough. It’s time to clean up light litter! Turn off or cover the glow of devices–or consider keeping them out of your bedroom altogether. Install window shades that feature blackout and room-darkening fabrics. They will add an element of style while helping to create the necessary darkness that will turn your room into a sleep sanctuary.
Turn the Sound Off
Along with light, sound may be making a mess of your sleeping habits and patterns. You may not even realize just how much noises are reducing the restorative power of your rest because sounds don’t have to jostle you awake at night to be a problem. Noises can simply arouse your brain and prevent you from going into deeper stages of sleep. So, if distant sirens, grumbling planes, beeping automobiles, and vigilant dogs are the quartet that plays your nightly lullaby, window coverings that absorb sound are a must-have in your home. They will be sleep solutions you relish!
Rest and Relax
Easier said than done, right? Demanding and hectic days get the best of everyone. It can be so hard to unwind, and some of your usual attempts may actually be interfering with getting quality sleep. Late-day exercise and TV before bedtime can wake you up, and a nightcap can leave you floating in a light stage of sleep. Instead, spend fifteen minutes enjoying a calming activity–such as listening to quiet music, reading by a soft light, or stretching. Then, head to bed. Also, make sure that your home is a comfortable, consistent temperature. Being too hot or too cold can make it impossible to relax–which is already hard enough. Energy-efficient window shades can be a big help with this. Their insulating properties work to maintain a stable temperature regardless of whether snow is flying or the summer sun is scorching outside. With these sleep solutions, you’ll be relaxed and ready for dreamland in no time!
Surround Yourself with Convenience
Does your home boast a desirable panoramic view? Seeing the skyline, or overlooking your own beautiful landscape from floor-to-ceiling windows is a treat like no other. Managing glare and privacy, however, can be a time-consuming challenge. Not with the intelligent technology of PowerView automation, though. Select and save the positions of the window coverings throughout your home that provide just the right amount of light, privacy, and room ambiance for different times of day and occasions. Then program them to occur automatically or control them from your favorite device with the PowerView App. Setting the scene for your next dinner party has never been easier. Plus, you can schedule your window shades to enhance your sleep patterns. Set them to rise and let the sun peek in to wake you up in the morning and then to lower while you start your relaxing bedtime routine. Your window shades will work for you morning, noon, and night while you rest easy! PowerView provides convenient and innovative sleep solutions you shouldn’t live without!
