One of the things in our society that people underestimate the most is sleep. The majority of us are overslept. We work way too much and rest way too little. The problem is that even when we rest, we do not do it properly.
Today we will tell you how you can make your bedroom the perfect environment for the proper kind of rest. That way you will feel much more energized after your sleep and you will be ready to take the world head on!
1. Ditch The TV
It is somewhat of a modern trend to have TVs in the bedroom. However, this is one of the worst things you can do for yourself. Your bedroom should be used mainly for sleeping, and other kind of bed business. That excludes watching TV, working in bed, or even studying.
See, our brains are masters at pattern recognition. They can adjust themselves unconsciously. And such an adjustment is key for a proper sleeping habit. Having a TV in your bedroom disrupts these patterns and your brain starts to associate your bedroom with brainless entertainment, and not rest.
2. Calming Colours
While having a splash of colour around your home is a great way to boost your mood and make it feel much more welcoming, your bedroom is not the place to be extravagant with it. Flatter, calmer colours are the best pick here. Avoid bright and flashy nuances as they engage your brain too much.
3. Yellow Lights
You may have heard that blue light affects your sleepiness. It is detrimental if you are trying to sleep on a regular schedule. That is because blue light signals your brain that it has to stay awake, and obviously this is the opposite of what you want to accomplish.
Where does blue light come from though? TVs (which we have already mentioned), phones, computer screens, and… the majority of LED (or fluorescent) lighting. You have to look for yellow tinted lighting specifically, but it will make your sleeping habits much better.
4. High Quality Mattress
If you want to be truly rested, you have to sleep for a minimum of 6 hours a day, but you should make it 7.5 hours for this to be optimal. However, sleep length alone is not the only thing that matters. If you are sleeping on an uncomfortable mattress, you won’t be well-rested in the morning. Instead you may feel groggy and even stiff.
Investing in a high quality mattress is a must. It is the one thing that you use for such a long time. Think about it – you spend at least a quarter of your day on that mattress. What else do you use that much?
5. Dusting Is Key
Dust is literally everywhere. You cannot escape it. No matter how hard you try to keep your house clean, you just can’t get rid of dust completely. But breathing it in is not an alternative either. That is why regular dusting is an absolute necessity, especially in the bedroom.
But why? Well, when you sleep, your breathing is very regular and quite deep. And you are staying the same room for hours, usually without much ventilation there. So if dust is around you, you are going to breathe it in and this can cause a plethora of respiratory problems.
We understand if dusting is too much of a chore for you. But that is why you can request our regular cleaning. We from WooW Services are always ready to help!
