How To Make Your Bedroom Sleep Friendly [VIDEO]

Did you know that it is important to have a bedroom that is conducive to getting a good nights sleep? Watch our video post on this very subject matter and find out how a bedroom with a cool temperature, dark interior and with little or no electronics can ultimately ensure that you have a better nights sleep.
