Did you know that sleep vacations are the latest thing in hotels?

Read the following blog entry from WebMD's sleep expert, Michael Breus:

Sleep Vacations, At Home and Away

And according to this article , it's healthy to make your bed.

So tell us, do you make YOUR bed every day and how do you make your bedroom a welcoming place to sleep?

Hi Caprice!
My daily routine is set on key points.
My wife and I make the bed together, when we get up, we have been for the past 31 years.
If she sleeps in (she's not as much a morning person as I am.)
I still make my side of the bed.
We usually get to bed at the same time but with my sleep disorder there are times that I will be last one to turn in. But the bed room routine is as most, a place for calm and sleep so the lap-tops aren't allowed.
I have to take a sleep aid at night to get past REM onset problems. and I use a CPAP at night so there is the routine of keeping the water level in the right spot and the cleaning of the face gear. (Very important) believe me.
I always make sure there is some good night blessings spoken to each other.
An intamate snuggle/hug and a good night kiss or two or three(depends how tired we are. The important thing is that we communicate our trust to each other and to our creator; for sleep is as if we leave our realm into the constructs of the mind taking on new adventures and partially in a state of a shadow of death (none dream sleep) only to wake to another day in the journey of our lives.
Good night.

It sounds like you and your wife have created quite a haven for yourselves when it comes to sleep and within your marriage.

Thank you for sharing your routine here, Mike.
