If you have tried absolutely everything – from exercising to maintaining a healthy diet and even given up on coffee – to ensure a good night’s sleep where you don’t toss and turn in bed, the problem isn’t inside you. Many individuals find it difficult to sleep due to their bedroom’s layout or furnishings and never figure out the reason behind them not getting a peaceful night of sleep.
A good night’s sleep is essential for your overall functioning and productivity during the day. Whereas, a lack of sleep would cause you to gain unnecessary pounds, and make you prone to multiple illnesses.
Listed below are certain bedroom redesign measures you can undertake to ensure a good night’s sleep:
1. Upgrade and treat your mattress regularly
If you feel you always sleep better in a hotel room, chances are your mattress is causing you to stay up at night. You should upgrade your mattress every 4-5 years to ensure that you get the best quality of sleep possible. However, if you recently purchased a new mattress, or simply cannot afford to purchase a new one every few years, you should opt for mattress cleaning services instead. Deep cleaning your mattress can give you the subconscious peace that your mattress is free and clean from any dust mites that may have been lurking around, and give you the peace of your mind your need for a good sleep.
2. Set your bedroom’s temperature
Your bedroom’s temperature has a great effect on you getting a good night’s sleep. Getting the temperature right for a good night’s sleep can be very difficult – sometimes it’s too hot and sometimes it’s too cold. Hence, you should install a new thermostat in your bedroom to monitor what temperature suits you the best.
3. Choose colors in your bedroom that encourage a good sleep
Cool colors such as lavender, light green, silver, and light gray are in fact conducive to sleep and help individuals achieve a good sleep at night. Not only are these colors minimalistic, but they also have a very calming effect on the individual sitting amidst them and hence aid them in sleeping favorably.
4. Install black shades to block out any light at nighttime
Even streetlights and lights shining through your neighbor’s window can affect your nighttime sleep and hence it is recommended that individuals install black shades over your windows that you can simply pull down at night to ensure that no external lights come in. A total blackout at night creates the perfect canvas for a peaceful sleep and ensures that no lights would be disturbing you unnecessarily.
While redesigning your bedroom to sleep peacefully may seem a bit daunting to some people, but it actually isn’t. Not only is a good sleep at night proportional to your bodily health, it is also important if you wish to function properly during the night. Besides, you don’t have to completely redesign your room either – only a few tweaks in a certain domain would get the job done and help you sleep better at night.
