Do you find yourself tired and cranky? If you’re not getting 8 hours of sleep each night, you may be feeling out of sorts. Sleep deprivation is real and it drains your mental abilities, putting your physical health at risk. Poor sleep has been linked to health issues from a weakened immune system to weight gain. Sleep deprivation happens after a consistent lack of sleep or reduced quality of sleep. Your body requires sleep as it helps your body heal and restores chemical balance. Memory retention and new thought connections are created by your brain during sleep.
Blackout window treatments can be a game changer when it comes to improving your quality of sleep. The benefits of blackout window treatments can have a major impact on anyone struggling to fall asleep or stay asleep but are especially helpful for:
*Shift workers/ night workers who need to sleep during the day
*Babies and kids who need naps during the day
*Restless sleepers/ anyone dealing with insomnia
*People dealing with streetlights and other light pollution
How do blackout window treatments help? By creating a completely dark environment to sleep in, light pollution and stimuli are eliminated. These distractions prevent you from getting the sleep you need. Your body craves a dark environment so you can drift into a natural slumber without the need for sleep aids.
Enhanced privacy is another bonus of blackout window treatments. Plus, they provide the ultimate protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays which can damage your furnishings and flooring. You won’t have to worry about cracking, fading and peeling of your furniture with blackout window solutions. You control how dark the options are by choosing from a range of opacity levels that allow up to 100% blockage of the sun’s UV rays.
Blackout blinds are a popular option. Their insulation helps to create ideal sleeping conditions, plus keeps sunlight out to keep your home cooler during the hot summer months. If you prefer a warm environment to sleep, blackout blinds will keep the heat locked in the room. If you’re a fan of falling asleep in a cool room, the insulating layer of blackout blinds will keep the cold air in, giving you comfort. As a perk, this can help in lowering your energy costs and save you money in the long run. The insulation of blackout blinds also helps to eliminate noise disruptions, regardless of the time of day.
