A good day always starts with a good night sleep. Sleep is vital for your metabolism, thinking, immunity, concentration, energy levels, and mood. Having a well-designed bedroom can prompt a better sleep quality, which can greatly improve your productivity and mental health. A soothing bedroom allows you to drift off gently to sleep and get the quality of rest you crave.
It’s essential that the visual design and practical setup of your bedroom foster a soothing ambiance which would provide you with that instant feeling of relaxation. Dozing off comfortably and enjoying deep sleep help your body restore and make you feel good the next day. Deep sleep is essential for clearing waste from the brain and putting energy back into your cells.
Refreshing your sleeping space has the power to reframe your perspective on comfort. With just some simple tweaks could turn your bedroom into a restful oasis of good sleep and sweet dreams.
Declutter Your Bedroom
Waking up in a quiet and aesthetically pleasing bedroom can help you start the day on the right foot. A well-designed bedroom should contain minimal furniture such as a cozy chair, mirror, a nightstand, wardrobe in addition to your bed. Remove unnecessary clutter that make your bedroom look crowded and visually heavy. Having disorganized items in your bedroom can generate anxious feelings which might make it harder for you to relax your mind when you want to fall asleep.
Keep It Dark
When light is detected, it delays the release of melatonin, thus keeping your body temperature raised which can make falling asleep hard. Melatonin is the hormone responsible for regulating sleep-wake cycles which is released at night in the darkness. Receiving light signals during your sleep can initiate wakefulness. Therefore, it’s important to block light sources to enjoy deep, restorative sleep and a regular sleep clock. If blocking all light isn’t feasible, you can always use a sleep mask that covers your eyes. Choose one with a comfortable band and smooth, breathable fabric like fine cotton, satin, or silk.
To improve your sleep time, try to eliminate as much interference as possible. Noise can make it hard to get to sleep or staying asleep during the night thus affecting your deep sleep cycles. Try to block any source of noise in your bedroom. If you can’t control the noise use earplugs or a white noise machine to make it easier for you to doze off.
Just as loud noises can keep you from staying asleep, distractions can make falling asleep more difficult. You should avoid electronics, TV, and mobile devices. They’re not only distracting but also they emit blue light, which makes it more difficult to fall asleep.
Even changing small things can have a major impact on your sleep. A well-designed bedroom provides an environment for rest, positivity, and relaxation.
