Ways to Create a Relaxing Bedroom Atmosphere for a Deep Sleep

Getting a good night’s sleep is not many people’s priority. Considering the modern lifestyle that most of us lead, 24 hours per day can often seem as simply not enough time for everything we need to accomplish. So, the first thing we sacrifice is our sleep. However, not getting enough sleep can lead to more serious consequences than just being tired the day after. From obesity to stress, being sleep deprived is not something that should be taken lightly. With that in mind, here are a few tips that should help you create a perfect atmosphere for a satisfying sleep.

Adjust the lighting

Adjust the lighting

Your body reacts to light naturally – you’ve probably noticed that it’s much harder to focus on your work in a dimly lit room. Similarly, it’s much harder to get a good night’s sleep in a room that is too bright. In other words, artificial lighting can affect our body’s natural reaction to light and disrupt our need for sleep. This is why it’s often recommended not to use any smartphones, tablets, and laptops at least one hour before bedtime. Additionally, make sure the overall lighting in your bedroom is not too strong, and consider getting some thicker curtains, especially if your bedroom happens to be facing the east side.

Adjust the temperature

Adjust the temperature

Just like the lighting, the temperature gives your body sleep-related signals too. This is why you might have trouble falling asleep during the hot summer nights, while sleeping in winter often seems much more satisfying. It’s also why having a hot bath before bed can help you fall asleep faster, as the cooler temperature right after the bath can help your body relax. The thing is, your body’s temperature needs to drop a bit in order for you to fall asleep – and have the best quality sleep. So, don’t overheat your bedroom, as research has shown that the optimal temperature for sleep is around 65 degrees Fahrenheit.

Pick the right mattress

Pick the right mattress

The one thing you should not skimp on in your bedroom is definitely the mattress. People often spend a lot of money on choosing the right storage solutions, picking the most stylish bedding, choosing the carpet, etc. While all those things do play a role, many people forget about the actual thing they’ll be sleeping on, which is the whole purpose of the room. When it comes to mattresses, different types suit different people, so make sure to do some research before you choose yours. That being said, you can’t go wrong with one of the quality king mattresses, as they would provide you with both comfort and plenty of space.

Choose calming colors

Choose calming colors

You probably already know that colors can affect your mood, so it might not be the best idea to decorate your bedroom in vibrant, bold colors. Of course, your own personality plays a role as well. For example, if you love the color red, you can still use it – but it would be better used as an accent color. In that case, you can opt for a more neutral base color that would match your bolder accents, like cream or light yellow. Moreover, you can also add some color with plants and planters. Plants, in general, have a soothing effect, which is one more reason for adding them to your bedroom. They would purify the air inside it, and they would make it more comfortable.

Clear the clutter

Clear the clutter

Studies have shown that people who live in clutter are more likely to develop a sleep disorder. After all, if your environment is a mess, your mind is more likely to be a mess as well. We’ve all had those moments when there were just too many things on our mind and we couldn’t fall asleep, and this is what can happen if your environment is not organized. Even subconsciously, when you know that there are tasks that need to be done, you may fall asleep, but you’ll probably not be able to recharge fully. Therefore, keep your bedroom as clutter-free as possible – and try to do the same with the other rooms as well.

Not many people realize how important it is to let your body rest. No matter how busy you might be, you can never perform at your full potential if you’re constantly tired due to not sleeping enough, or if your environment is just not suitable for sleeping. Therefore, make sure your bedroom has everything you need for a good night’s sleep, and you’re bound to notice the difference sooner than you might think.
