If you can not wake up, and go all day exhausted, look around you. Perhaps the causes of drowsiness are from you at arm’s length.
These seven completely harmless and habitual things in your home can be a cause of sleep disturbance and even a chronic sense of fatigue.

2. The walls are blue
It sounds strange, but according to the results of the American study, which analyzed 2,000 different houses with blue-colored bedrooms, it is this calming color that can slow the heart rate and lower heart pressure. So, the blue background makes you feel drowsy. Even if you do not realize it.
3. TV and computer
More precisely, the habit of falling asleep under his accompaniment. The fact is that radiation suppresses the production of melatonin, a hormone regulator of circadian rhythms, responsible for healthy fatigue and sleep.

5. Scented candles
Especially, with the aroma of lavender and other “relaxing”. Do not underestimate the effect of aromatherapy.
Smells are strongly associated with emotional memory. Therefore, it is very useful to have at hand an aroma associated with the experienced minutes of intense happiness, delight, bliss. Breathe it more often, it will help to keep a good mood.
6. Always lowered blinds and thick curtains
Darkness is a friend of good sleep. But in order not to feel drowsy at four o’clock in the evening, leave the windows unblowned until the quiet hour is near.
7. Too cold room
