A bedroom makeover can help you get a good night’s sleep.
Waking up each morning feeling refreshed and energized is a great way to start the day. Having trouble sleeping the night before can have you feeling groggy and sluggish in the morning.
Many factors are affecting your quality of sleep. But one big thing to consider is how you’ve decorated your bedroom. If you’d like to know more about how to set your bedroom up as the ideal space for sleep, read on below.
One of the first things you should consider in your bedroom is your bed. Do you find yourself tossing and turning in the evening? Rolling over to find the perfect decision? Consider a memory foam mattress.
Memory foam mattresses mold themselves according to your body. So whatever body type you have, the memory foam mattress will adjust for you.
Payment Choose room-darkening blinds, drapes, or shades that allow you to rid the room of any outside light in the evening.
Vary the types of lightbulbs you have in your bedroom. A bright lightbulb might be appropriate near the desk. But you’d want more gentle lighting for your reading lamp next to your bed. An easy way to make any lightbulb less harsh is by using lampshades.
Consider installing dimmer switches for your lighting. You’ll no longer only have to decide between having the lights on or off. You can control the brightness as you see fit.
Unless you hate it, blue should be the color of your bedroom’s walls. The color blue contributes to more extended rest and is soothing and calming.
There are special receptors in your eyes known as ganglion cells. These cells are responsible for relaying visual information to the part of your brain that controls your sleep cycle. These ganglion cells are most sensitive to blue.
Reducing the thumps and bumps you hear in the evening will help you sleep better and make the room feel more welcoming.
1. Silent Mode
Noisy gadgets can keep you up at night. Notifications and ringtones from your smartphone, tablet, or computer stop you from sleeping. Consider setting all your devices to enter “Do Not Disturb” mode at a specific time in the evening.
2. White Noise
White noise isn’t noise. It is a consistent sound that blocks out distracting noises, thus helping you sleep better. There’s no need to buy a white noise machine. Turn on a fan, air purifier, air conditioner, or small fountain and listen to the noise.
If your partner’s snoring has been bothering you for a while, consider taking them to visit a sleep specialist. Or consider buying them breathing strips or decongestants.
Everyone wants a good night’s sleep to get ready for the next day. Making some small changes in your bedroom can go a long way in terms of your sleep quality.
