Extremely Precise Directions for Better Sleep

New research from the UK has resulted in some extremely specific directions for how to get the best sleep.

The survey of 1,000 people found that in the winter months, people sleep an average of six hours and 15 minutes, 40 minutes less than in the summer, while more than half complained of “cold and discomfort” in the night.  Room temperature also causes two arguments a week for half of couples, with nearly a quarter of the respondents forced to bundle up when going to sleep. One in ten even take a nip of brandy before bed.

So, what can you do about this sleep problem?  The survey has a very specific answer, based on the analysis of the results.  Here’s what you should do:

  • Two goose feather pillows (A note from SleepBetter: We prefer synthetic down, as it doesn’t cause allergy problems)
  • One hot water bottle
  • One a winter-weight duvet
  • One throw or blanket across the bottom of the bed
  • One pair of slipper socks
  • One pair of cotton pajamas
  • A room temperature of 66.2 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Go to bed at 10:37 p.m. and wake at 7:19 a.m.
