'Say goodbye to tech'- definitely, I always feel like my best nights of sleep are the ones when I've shut down all tech a few hours before sleeping. Such a difference. Would add one thing to the list- the colour of your artificial lighting. The closer to natural daylight the better- more on the yellow scale, less on the white.

Melanie, i suggest you try wool-filled duvets and pillows. I'd never go back to a down duvet now; wool resists damp and also doesn't harbour dust mites, it feels warm but breathes brilliantly in warm weather... I also have a wool-filled mattress protector, which is great: i'm sleeping on wool as well as under it.

Thank you for this very interesting article! I didn't know that the paint could have an impact on the breathing quality.
