9 Things in Your House That Are Making You Tired

These pesky culprits might be the reason you can't seem to wake up. Your home decor, appliances, and lifestyle choices can all affect your state of mind and how restful your night's sleep is, according to Good Housekeeping.

Watch out for these household items that may be negatively affecting your zzz's and making you feel tired the next day.

Your clutter: A Princeton University Neuroscience Institute study found that a messy, unorganised environment causes you to expend mental energy on stress, which increases your exhaustion.

Your TV: And your tablet screen. Both exude blue wavelengths that suppress your brain's production of melatonin (the chemical that makes you feel tired and helps you fall asleep), meaning you're more likely to have shorter disrupted sleep, causing you to be tired the next day.

Your coffee maker​: While caffeine is a stimulant and it does increase your energy, that effect wears off over time and leaves you feeling worse later.

Your low thermostat setting: Studies found that the optimal temperature for sleep is actually pretty cool at 60 to 68 degrees Fahrenheit — so if you keep your home chilly you might find yourself feeling ready for a nap during the day.

Your drawn curtains: One study about workers with offices with windows versus those without found that people who were exposed to natural light all day long on average slept 46 more minutes per night.

The same goes for your home: More natural light will help you sleep better at night and feel more rested the next day.
