Do you find it hard to fall asleep at hotels? Improper sleep can have negative impacts such as:
- Weakened immune system;
- Weight gain;
- Impaired brain activity;
- And becoming accident prone.
Are these symptoms that you want to experience on your next trip or vacation? Incorporate these sleep must-haves on your next trip to ensure you stay well-rested and enjoy yourself to the fullest.
Pack the Essentials
When it comes to sleeping easy, certain items are essential. These must-haves can make all difference in getting that much-needed rest while on vacation.
Earplugs or noise cancelling headphones work great for drowning out the sound of any noise from others in the hotel or nearby traffic. Don’t forget the eye shades either! These are useful for blocking out distracting visuals or light in the room.
Ensure Your Room is a Non-Smoking Room
For non-smokers, this can be an important point. Being in a room that is normally occupied by smokers can cause uneasiness and even lead to an upset stomach. If you find yourself in a room that smells of smoke don’t be afraid to address it at the front desk and ask for a room transfer.
Keep Dinner Portions Reasonable
Refrain from massive dinners before going straight to bed. Remember, your stomach has to digest all that food! The more food you eat the harder your stomach to work to digest it. This can have a negative impact on getting a deep night sleep.
Ask to Move Rooms (If Necessary)
Hotels are all about providing quality service. If noise has become so loud and inconvenient that it is prohibiting you from proper sleep you have every right to request a room switch.
