Everyone has their own strategies for a good night’s sleep, but if you are looking for a few pointers to make your bedroom more sleep friendly, you have come to the right place! Here are 6 more steps towards the perfect sleep in your new bedroom at Arcadia Run:
Make the space serene: Having your room decorated in a pleasing way creates a serene environment to give you a more peaceful sleep. When choosing colors for your room, light colors, especially blue, will benefit your mood and sleep.
Choose a good temperature: Studies have shown that too hot or too cold rooms will disturb your sleep and cause you to toss and turn during the night. The ideal temperature for quality sleep is between 60-67 degrees.
Block the distractions & noise: Your body’s natural sleep cycle can be disturbed by light and noises coming from all of the electronics and other distractions that are in your bedroom. When you go to sleep, keep all of the distractions to a minimum and try not to fall asleep with the television on. If you must be on your phone, computer or tablet, keep the brightness down.
Add calming scents: Certain scents, such as lavender, vanilla, and jasmine have a calming effect on your body, which may help you fall asleep faster. If you are wary about using candles or air fresheners, prepare a nice cup of hot tea with these flavors and for the same calming effect.
Keep it clean: If you tend to have a messy room, you are more likely to have some stress caused by the mess when you go to bed and then again when you wake up. Laundry is one of the top causes of a messy room, so make it a priority to keep up with your laundry routine.
Make a comfortable bed: Everyone has a different idea of what a comfy bed feels like. Finding the most comfortable bed for you is all about trial and error because you might fall asleep faster with a firm mattress than with a soft one, or vice versa. And don’t forget, the same goes for pillows!
Sometimes habits take awhile to change, so if you want to start adjusting your sleeping routines with these awesome steps, you don’t have to rush into it. Take it slow and steadily integrate these as a part of your go-to tricks for a perfect sleep!
