Sleep is a vital element of a happy and healthy life, but people often do not give sleep the attention it deserves. Sleeping for eight to nine hours every night is extremely important for physical and mental health, so why not make your bedroom a wonderful place to sleep? Here are some tips for transforming your bedroom into an oasis, from the mattress to the walls.
Paint your room in calming colors. Calming colors such as cool blues and greens are great for combatting insomnia, relaxing your mind, and easing you into sleep. Paint your room in a cool sky blue or a sage green for a comforting feel—you’ll be surprised at how much a great paint job will help a room feel more inviting.
Add some soothing decorative touches. As long as you don’t have allergies, fresh flowers are a fantastic calming element. Change your bouquet every few days; it’s wonderful to close your eyes and then wake up to the sight of a beautiful floral arrangement. The aroma of certain flowers is also very soothing.
Ensure good air quality. Breathing high-quality air that’s the correct temperature will help you get a good night’s sleep. In the winter, a humidifier is a great addition—it will keep your sinuses from drying out from the artificially warmed air. In the summer, make sure you are cool enough. All throughout the year, an air purifier is a good idea.
Choose the right mattress. The right mattress is essential for a good night’s sleep, so don’t delay. Sleep (or lack thereof) on a poor-quality mattress can cause back and neck pain as well as all the complications that accompany insomnia. A good mattress is one of the most important investments you’ll make, so choose wisely.
