Women's Health Australia - - BEST BODY -

Tidy bed, tidy zeds.

That’s the word from a sur­vey of 1500 adults by the US Na­tional

Sleep Foun­da­tion, which found bed-mak­ers were 19 per cent more likely to re­port get­ting a good night’s shut-eye on most days. “It’s about do­ing what makes you feel like, ‘Yes, this [bed] is a place where I want to spend my next eight hours or so’,” says sleep ther­a­pist Dr Katha­rina Led­erle, au­thor of Sleep Sense (Ex­isle, $29.99) and co-founder of sleep-health hub som­nia.org.uk. An­other trick? Fresh sheets: 75 per cent of the sur­vey par­tic­i­pants slept bet­ter with that clean smell.
