SIMPLE BEDROOM UPDATES TO CREATE YOUR OWN RELAXING RETREAT SPACE.
A sleep sanctuary is a space you can retreat to at the end of the day. Where you can relax and recharge. It’s where you can get away from all the noise in your life—and find some quiet time. Creating an inviting bedroom oasis allows you to unwind and de-stress so your mind is prepared for a good night of rest when it’s time to fall asleep.
FIND WHAT WORKS FOR YOU.
The ideal sleep sanctuary is a space that feels safe and secure. Where you can be calm and grounded. And you can customize it to what feels good for you (and your partner). It doesn’t need to be fancy or include a bedroom remodel. You’ll be surprised how small changes can make a big difference in your quality of sleep.
5 WAYS TO UPDATE YOUR SPACE FOR BETTER SLEEP.
Here are some tips to help you get started:
SAY GOODBYE TO CLUTTER
A messy space makes it harder for your mind to relax. And it can even make you feel more stressed. Remove items that don’t belong in your room—like paperwork or toys—keeping a minimal amount of things for a clean and clear environment.
INCLUDE COZY, SOFT BEDDING
Comfortable, natural bedding that feels good against your skin and keeps you cool at night. Try incorporating good-fitting sheets made of naturally cool organic cotton. Add pillows made with plant-based latex rubber to provide needed support with breathable, non-toxic comfort.
SOOTHING SCENTS & CALMING SOUNDS
Create a spa-like environment by choosing soothing scents to fill the room. Try essential oils like lavender or chamomile in the form of a natural linen spray, an essential oil diffuser, or a soy candle. As you’re winding down in the evening, play calming music or nature sounds (like rain) to help you relax even more.
REMOVE DIGITAL DISTRACTIONS
This one is simple but not always easy. The pull of our electronic devices is a hard one to fight. But the blue light exposure from screens suppresses your body’s production of melatonin and makes it harder to fall asleep. Set a sleep timer on your mobile devices to automatically turn off the screen at a specific time.
GET THE LIGHT RIGHT
Open the windows and let in plenty of natural light during the day. But as the sun goes down, keep the room cool and dark. Try black-out curtains or a personal sleep mask to block out as much light as possible while you sleep. Light can interrupt your circadian rhythm, making it difficult to get rejuvenating rest.
