If you’re like any other average adult, then you probably spend at least 8 hours at day in bedroom (sleeping and getting ready). Since you are spending a third of your time in this particular room, don’t you want it to be inspiring to sleep in? Here are some things you can add or take away from your bedroom to help with those Zs!
Add A Calming Canvas
Magenta is a calming color therefore when you look at you instantly feel it’s soothing aura. So what better way to calm yourself before bed than by having a canvas painted this color! Blues and greens also exhibit the same stress relieving factor.
Take Away Bright Lights
Switch out your bedroom light-bulbs for softer ones so that the light isn’t so stimulating. If you don’t want to do that with the overhead ones, then switch out the ones in your bedside lamp. If you don’t have one of those, invest in one that slowly dims on a timer to imitate a natural sundown.
Add Making Your Bed Everyday
It can seem like a hassle but once you get in the habit of making your bed as soon as you get out of it, it will be a natural response. Doing this will give your bedroom a cleaner feel to it which in turn will make you want to be there. Walking into your bedroom with a messy bed is not the most inviting thing.
Take Away Electronics
If you have a TV in your bedroom, get rid of it. Studies show that you should be turning off all electronics way before you actually go to bed so that your brain can start calming down. The blue light emanating from electronics stimulates your brain more than you think so either move the TV to another area or vow to turn it off 30 mins before sleep time!
Balance has a soothing effect. If your side of the bed has a table next it, add another one to the other side. Have the same number of throw pillows, instead of one lounge chair, have two facing each other for nightly discussions. Balance in your bedroom will bring balance to your sleep.
