According to lifestyle experts, these common household habits could be making you sleepy:
Your home is cluttered: A study out of Princeton University found that a cluttered house can make you emotionally exhausted. Your brain actually ends up spending a lot of energy on the stress induced by the mess and it makes you feel sleepy.
You have blue walls: A recent study found that blue walls actually slow your heart rate and even lower your blood pressure, making you feel tired.
Your thermostat setting: The optimal sleep temperature is between 60 and 68 degrees. If your thermostat is too high, you might not be getting a good night’s sleep, making you feel tired the next day.
Your wine fridge: That glass (or two) of wine at night might make you fall asleep faster, but the quality of sleep you get isn't very good. You will most likely wake up more often during the night, which will have you hitting that snooze button in the morning.
The junk food in your pantry: Sure, it's fun to snack on chips and cookies while you're watching your favorite shows at night, but those foods are loaded with simple carbs and sugar, which result in blood sugar spikes, followed by drops that will make you feel tired over time.
Your phone: A study by the National Sleep Foundation found that 20% of people between ages 19 to 29 were woken up by a call, text, or email at least a few times a night. (Redbook)
