We all know the importance of a good night’s sleep. However, it can be hard to get the right amount of rest. Your environment can have a huge impact on your quality of sleep. We’ve put together a list of simple changes you can make in your bedroom to help you drift off quicker.
Focus on Relaxation
Your bedroom should help you unwind. The design should be geared around comfort and things that help you relax. Keep it simple. If you have a home office set-up in your bedroom it will only remind you of all the work you have to do. If possible, keep your work out of your bedroom. Of course, not everyone has the space for this, but there are interior design tips to at least soften the look if you’ve got no option but to work from your bedroom.
Speaking of soft, how comfortable do you feel in your bedroom? You should play with soft furnishings and textures to create a cozy space for yourself. Whether you want to pile on the blankets, use decorative pillows, or even get a rug to soften the floor. It’s not just your physical surroundings either. Ladies nightwear can make you feel cosier. There’s nothing quite like curling up with a good book in your favorite pajamas at the end of a long day.
This brings us nicely to what your habits are before bed. So many of us are guilty of scrolling on our phones until we get tired, but you should limit your screen time before sleeping. More and more adults in the UK are having trouble sleeping because of their phones. You’re probably aware by now that the blue light can impact your body clock and make you think it’s daylight. So if you’re looking to improve your sleep, don’t bring your phone to bed with you.
If blue light from a screen impacts your body, does that mean the colours of your wall can also impact the quality of your sleep? Yes, they can. There are certain colours you can paint your bedroom to help improve the quality of your sleep. Aim for cool or neutral palettes for the best results. Think lavender or pale green.
Your bedroom is your haven from the rest of the world. Invest time in creating a space that helps you feel relaxed and comfortable. Do you have any tips to help you sleep?
