5 Ways to Make Your Room Sleep-Friendly
Good sleep is directly related to better physical and mental health, happiness, and overall well being. However, too many people, either due to stressful lives or a disruptive sleep environment, get less than ideal sleep. We offer 5 tips to make your room more sleep friendly for a healthy, deep sleep:
Lower the Temperature
Slightly colder rooms are better for sleeping. Natural fibres are breathable and perfect for maintaining a lower temperature. Use fabrics like eco - friendly bamboo or Egyptian cotton are your best options. Cotton or cotton blends like sateen and percale are also great budget friendly options
If your bedroom is messy, it will likely stress you out. Keep your room dust free and organized. Keep anything work related out of sight, stay light on accessories, choose closed storage nightstands to put away stuff so it's not scattered across your room. You can use these handy baskets and trays to keep your space clutter free
Cozy and Comfortable
Make your room cozy by adding extra cushion, and add a comfortable down duvet insert. The duvet might be a little pricey, but they are a great long term investment. Also, add soft lighting lighting to your room to create a warm, stress free atmosphere
Use candles or an oil diffuser with aromatic oils like lavender, rose, and chamomile that are great for winding down before bed. They are known to improve sleep quality and creating a peaceful sleep environment.
Get Rid of electronics
According to the sleep foundation, it’s important to stop using your electronic devices, phone, tablets, laptops etc., 30 minutes before you go to sleep. The late-night Netflix session might seem harmless but the blue light from these devices can prevent you from falling asleep, and impact your quality of sleep. You can make small changes by listening to a podcast instead of streaming a video to slowly get adjusted to a new routine.
