A good sleep at night is very necessary for the health.

In our religious books and even in Chinese culture are suggested some methods for it:

1. If you choose dark color for the bed sheets, it is always advisable to choose light colors for the paint on walls.

2. When you sleep you always make the room dark and switch off the lights. Having dark colour bed sheets will automatically give more darkness and it will help you to get a sounder sleep. When the dark colour struck to your eyes; eyes automatically wish to close and thus you go on sound sleep.

3. Light prints may be sober and attractive but for sound sleep purpose they are not at all good. In the day time you can put them for adding beauty to your room, but in the night time only dark colour bed sheets must be there.

You should put light printed sheets in the day time and while sleeping take the upper light colour bed sheets and go on to sleep on dark colours only. – Madhu Sidhwani
