SLEEP ENVIRONMENT: HOW TO CREATE THE PERFECT BEDROOM RETREAT
A good night’s sleep can change your life. During sleep, your body is working to support healthy brain function and maintain your physical and mental health. Research shows that sleep quality is superior to sleep quantity. We should pay more attention to obtaining sleep of good quality. Small changes in your bedroom can bring about that sleep quality and luxurious rest you need. You can transform your bedroom into that personalized retreat with these simple changes.
How to create that luxurious bedroom haven
There are various ways to make small changes in your bedroom for improved, quality sleep. These include:
Optimize your room temperature
The ideal temperature for sleep is between 60- and 67 degrees Fahrenheit. You can maintain this temperature with small adjustments like opening windows, turning on or off the AC and fan, and getting breathable bed linen.
Choose appropriate bedding
Choose natural fabrics like cotton, bamboo, viscose, linen, natural silk, etc. for your bed linen. These materials and fabrics are breathable and would not overheat at night and affect sleep negatively.
Sleep in darkness
Light is a major factor that has a deep impact on the quality of sleep. The brain produces the hormone melatonin and sends a signal to the body that it’s time to rest. The darkness increases melatonin levels and helps lower the risk of depression. Invest in heavy, lined draperies and block out all light entering your bedroom for that ultimate sleep retreat.
Fragrances to relax
The sense of smell is powerful, and stimulating your sense of smell can help you relax when you get ready for bed. Choose the right scent for your bedroom retreat. Some fragrances like lavender, chamomile, rose, geranium, jasmine, and others contribute to better sleep. Incorporate a diffuser with calming oils, linen spray, or candles to use with your choice of fragrance, to enhance that rejuvenating restful sleep experience.
Perfect balance for comfort and support
A good mattress is crucial in achieving a great night’s sleep. The right mattress offers the perfect balance of required comfort and support. It significantly enhances the quality of sleep and luxurious rest. Invest in the right mattress for your tranquil bedroom retreat, providing the ultimate peaceful rest. Also, select your pillow with care. The correct supportive pillow can give you the comfort and support for that exquisite sleep.
Avoid noise and electronics
When entering your bedroom retreat, reduce all external influences and noises. Create a bubble of tranquility and detach yourself from the world. Prepare for the ultimate sleeping experience. Your bedroom retreat should offer you a space away from the world, news, TV, and work.
Find a place elsewhere for documents, notes, the newspaper, and anything else from your pocket or briefcase. Transform your bedroom into a perfect sanctuary for rest and tranquility. Your bedroom retreat is the place where you will recharge and recover with optimal quality rest and sleep to take on life.
Create that safe, serene place for revitalizing yourself by creating your perfect bedroom retreat and making your dreams come true.
