It’s a proven fact that a good night’s sleep is vital for our well-being, but people often have problem falling asleep at night. While stress is one of the key reasons for this, the environment within your bedroom can also affect your sleep patterns.
It is important to make your room sleep friendly to make sure you do not spend the night tossing and turning. If you’re wondering how to achieve this, here are some tips for you.
1. Keep the Bedroom Clean
Keep your bedroom well-organized as too much clutter can lead to a ‘cluttered mind.” Have enough storage space within the bedroom and make sure things are organized properly in their respective place. Not only does it make your room look better; it also makes things easy to find.
2. Have the Right Bed
Having the right kind of bed is very important to ensure a good night’s sleep. Make sure the bed is large enough for you to sleep comfortably. For instance, a king-size bed such as the Hudson Furniture French beds would be appropriate for two people to sleep comfortably. It is also important to have the right mattress and bedding. The right bedding and mattress reduces stress and helps you to fall asleep quickly. Choose bed sheets that are made of natural fibre and are in a soothing color. The pillows should also be soft and comfy.
3. Maintain Optimal Temperature within the Room
Lowering the temperature a bit can help induce sleep, so it is important to cool down the room before you go to bed. Experts suggest that the temperature of the room must be maintained at 68 degrees Fahrenheit for a good night’s sleep.
4. Make Your Bedroom Smell Nice
Lighting scented candles before going to sleep for a few drops of aroma oils (such as lavender, chamomile, and vanilla) can calm down your mind and induce sleep. Open the windows during daytime and allow fresh air to enter the room. This drives out the musty or foul odor from within the room, which can be very distracting. Light a candle or drop a few drops of aroma oil onto the pillows at half an hour before going to sleep. You can also buy an essential oil diffuser to keep the room aromatic.
5. Choose Cool Hues for the Walls
The color on the wall has an impact on your mood. Soothing colors such as blue, green, and other neutral colors calm your mind, whereas bright colors such as red, purple, orange, etc. make you feel restless and energetic. Since you need to feel relaxed before going to bed, it is important that you choose soothing colors for the walls.
6. Play Some Soothing Music
Music can have a soothing effect on your mind and body. Listening to some soothing music before going to bed can lull you into a sound sleep. Keep the volume to a minimum and choose a slow number.
The above tips can help you transform your room into a space that induces sleep and promotes good health. So try these tips and say ‘hello’ to restful slumber every night.
