We know how busy the week can become: you are carried off into hectic schedules and numerous plans that leave you only five hours to sleep until you need to resume your productive self. Life seems to be caught up in a whirlwind and unfortunately, your bedroom looks as if an actual tornado made a quick stop. With such limited time to sleep, what’s in your bedroom and how the environment feels can strongly influence the type of sleep you will get. Here’s how to make your bedroom a safe haven for all your resting needs.
Except for your phone, for alarm purposes only, your bedroom shouldn’t be your office. Any work that needs to be done should be outside your bedroom walls because your brain needs to associate your bedroom with the act of sleep. Even watching an episode or two of your favorite tv show can have an influence on your brain, making it stay awake longer than necessary.
Windows and Decorations
Surprisingly, what you see before you fall asleep is actually important. So if your bed is facing the window, you are probably accustomed to looking outside before you sleep. If you have a piece of artwork on your walls, you might have the habit of staring at it until your eyelids start to droop. However, the effects of what you look at impacts how well you sleep as well as what you might dream about. Try to keep the artwork sparse in the bedroom and for those pieces you absolutely love, make sure it’s calming to look at. So no Guernica, but yes on Starry Night.
The size of your bedroom does not matter if the floor is cluttered with clothes and random objects. If you find it hard to walk from one corner to the other, perhaps try to move the object that is in the way. Many people leave their bags on the floor, as well as laundry. Some people are even used to hitting their toes on the legs of their beds. This is not okay.
To solve this dilemma, set aside time every week to clear up your floors. Pick up objects lying on the floor and place it in drawers. Establish a place for everything you own so that the ground does not become a storage space of its own.
Your mattress matters
What you sleep on matters just as much as what you eat. If you were lactose-intolerant, you wouldn’t drink milk every day even if you grew up doing it, so why should you sleep on a mattress that is uncomfortable despite doing so for X many years?
Your schedule is busy enough without worrying about back pains so spend some time researching the type of mattress that is right for you. What you sleep on is a big influencing factor on how your day can turn out so a good mattress is definitely worth the investment!
