Bedroom Design & Use Are Important When It Comes To Biohacking Sleep

Beyond getting the right bed, there are plenty of things you can do to create a bedroom design that promotes quality sleep. Your room must be dark, quiet, and used solely as a place of rest — biohacked peace from stressful days.

Better Sleep Requires a Well-Designed Room

Several things can be added — or removed — from a bedroom to optimize health and sleeping conditions. Improving the design and use of your bedroom will help you relax at night, promoting better sleep. 

Shhh! A Dark and Quiet Bedroom May Require Tech

A dark environment is crucial for a good night’s sleep.1 Darkness tells the body that it’s time to rest. Light exposure at night has also been linked to depressive symptoms.2 Investing in blackout curtains will help with sleep quality, especially for people living in cities with excessive light pollution. 

Excessive sound can also be overstimulating while trying to fall asleep.3 This is especially challenging for people living in metropolitan areas. If you live in a noisy environment, a sound machine may be able to help you improve your sleep. Check out the sound and light sections for more information on how to optimize sleep using these tools. 

Many Biohackers Turn Off the TV — Not Just at Night

How a bedroom is set up and used influences sleep habits. One of the biggest mistakes people make is having a TV in their bedroom. Not only does the artificial light make it more difficult to sleep, but studies have shown that having a TV in the bedroom is also correlated with weight gain and relationship challenges.4

Using the bedroom solely as a space for relaxation and rest will help decrease stress and improve sleep quality.5 Too much clutter can increase stress levels, making it more difficult to fall asleep.6 Clearing out excess clutter and not using your sleep environment to work or watch TV will train your mind to recognize your bedroom as a place of rest.

“If you stop perceiving your bedroom as just another room in your home and begin considering it as your sleeping space, you will immediately begin to see the room in a different light.”

Air & Temperature

Set It At 65F: It’s Easy To Biohack the Air & Temperature In Your Bedroom

Everyone knows how vital it is to have a quiet space for rest, but only few know that air quality and temperature are equally important. Research shows that a cool space promotes deep rest, and healthy air quality— which can be enhanced with filters or plants.

Optimize Air Quality & Temperature for Sleep

Temperature and air quality play a big role in sleep quality. Luckily, they’re easy to hack. By simply making a few small but important changes, you’ll surely be able to notice improved sleep. 

Try a Warm Bath, Followed By Rest in a Cooled Room

Controlling room temperature throughout the evening and night is an easy biohacking tool that can have drastic effects on sleep. Increasing environmental temperature during the four hours prior to going to bed decreases the time it takes to fall asleep and increases the depth of sleep.1 Having a warm shower or bath before bed is also a great way to improve sleep quality.2 Once you are ready to go to bed, you’ll want to start lowering your body temperature — keeping your environment around 65 degrees will promote the best sleep.3 As you’ll notice by integrating this practice, small changes in body temperature have a big impact on sleep.4

Temperature control before and during sleep is a simple tool that can be very beneficial. Anyone with a temperature-controlled home can start doing it today. If you can’t control the temperature of your home, cooling sheets can be used to decrease body temperature.

Initial studies suggest that air quality has an effect on sleep.5 More studies are needed to confirm this theory. Nevertheless, this hack is worth a try. You have nothing to lose — removing toxins from your home environment can only benefit your overall health and well-being.6

Biohack Air Quality With Air Purifiers or Plants

Air purifiers can be purchased for an affordable price and are an easy addition to the bedroom to help remove harmful pollutants. HEPA filters can remove up to 99.9% of dust, pollen, bacteria, and other particles in the air which may be causing harm. Another way to improve air quality for sleep is by using a humidifier. Releasing moisture into the air helps relieve dry skin and nasal passages while sleeping.

Plants can also be used to remove pollutants from the air and naturally reduce stress.11 One or two small plants will not be enough to significantly change air quality. However, adding a green wall to your bedroom will remove pollutants and add a lovely decor to your home!12

“When you sleep, your body temperature naturally drops. A cooler room can help you get there, so crack the window and snuggle under a warmer blanket.”

Mattress & Bedding

Biohacking the Bedroom: Upgrade Mattress & Bedding for Quality Sleep

From cooling sheets to mattresses with built-in computers that track your sleep, modern bedding helps you get the best possible rest. Integrate new technology to improve your sleep and feel great all night, and all day.

Woman sleeping sideways on a cloud with head on her hands.

Beyond a Soft Pillow: Biohack Your Bed

Everyone appreciates soft sheets and a comfortable mattress. That said, bedding has much more complex effects on the body than most people realize.1

When biohacking the bedroom, mattress materials are the first thing you should be looking at. Most mattresses contain toxic chemicals that can be harmful to health and well-being. The good news is several companies offer products free from these toxins. 

Optimizing Your Mattress Is a Personal Choice

The firmness of a mattress is also important when it comes to getting better sleep. The optimal mattress firmness varies from person to person. Someone who sleeps on their side will want a softer mattress than someone who sleeps on their back. For people struggling with chronic back pain, a medium-firm mattress is the best choice to relieve symptoms and get better sleep.2 

New mattress technologies aim to improve sleep by optimizing body temperature and changing it throughout the night. Heat-conductive mattresses help regulate body temperature while you sleep.3 This type of mattress is widely available and should be considered if you’re looking to enhance your sleep quality. 

Biohacking mattress and bedding companies offer various cutting-edge solutions for better sleep. From advanced heating and cooling technology to vibrations that replace an alarm clock, today’s market has a lot to offer biohackers looking to improve their sleep. Some mattresses even track sleep cycles and provide real-time data that can help you sleep better.

Don’t Forget To Biohack Pillow, Blankets, and Sheets Too

Now, getting the right mattress is crucial to quality sleep, but your mattress isn’t the only thing that can make or break your sleep cycle. Getting the right pillow is important for sleep quality, as it is known to help with body alignment issues. There are pillows on the market for every type of sleeper — back, side, or stomach. Copper pillows have also recently become popular for their anti-inflammatory properties.4 

When it comes to bedding, several components play a role in sleep quality. For example, cooling sheets can help improve sleep, especially for people in hot climates because decreasing body temperature is beneficial when falling asleep.5 These products can help decrease the time it takes you to fall asleep, but more on that in the air and temperature section.

Another addition to the bed that can help improve sleep is a weighted blanket. Weighted blankets improve symptoms of insomnia and help reduce anxiety.6 They are an easy and affordable way to improve sleep.

“Most people spend roughly one-third of their lives in bed. It’s crucial to find a mattress that can provide adequate comfort as well as support.”

Aromatherapy

The Aroma of Biohacking: Aromatherapy Is Proven To Help Sleep

Winding down at the end of the day is easier when you incorporate calming scents into your evening routine. Essential oils and non-toxic candles can be used in a bath, in the air, or as a bed spray to increase relaxation and improve sleep naturally.

Try a Variety of Sleep-Inducing Scents

Aromatherapy induces relaxation and improves quality of sleep. Essential oils are the most commonly used form of aromatherapy. Sprays and candles can also be used to decrease the time it takes to fall asleep.1 

Science Shows Lavender Works Best to Biohack Sleep

Essential oils can be used in a diffuser or put directly onto your pillow to help you relax into a deep, restful sleep. Lavender aromatherapy works particularly well as a natural sleep aid.2 In addition to the classic essential oil, various lavender aromatherapy products are available on the market. For example, lavender bath products can be used at night to start winding down before bed. Sprays, candles, and fresh lavender are all great ways to reap the benefits. 

Chamomile3, cedarwood, sandalwood, and marjoram4 essential oils are also popular for sleep. However, research on their benefits as a sleep aid is limited. 

Essential oil diffusers are a great option if you want to dive into aromatherapy. They can be used to promote sleep at night and productivity during the day. Every essential oil has its own benefits. They can be bought in packs and used for various purposes. 

Although lavender seems to be one of the only essential oils backed by science to promote sleep, different people may find relaxation through different scents. Purchasing a sample pack of essential oils is a great way to figure out which ones work best for you.

Steer Clear of Cheap Candles To Avoid Poor Air Quality

Candles can also be used for aromatherapy, but have a bad reputation due to popular candle brands using toxic chemicals. If you want to use candles at home, especially in the bedroom, look for products that use soy wax, beeswax, or coconut wax. Stay on the lookout for artificial fragrances that may be harmful. With so many natural alternatives, there’s no reason to bring pollutants into the home in the name of relaxation and sleep improvement.

“Oils generate a biological response in the brain that boosts serotonin and endorphins, both of which promote relaxation.”
