We know that sleep is crucial to maintaining our physical and mental health. But getting consistent, quality rest is often harder than it sounds. A key factor in ensuring you get sufficient sleep is your bedroom environment. This means creating a bedroom setting that is relaxing and conducive for sleeping to help you fall asleep and stay asleep night after night.
For a healthy sleep environment, it’s essential to cultivate a bedroom ambience that promotes peace, relaxation, and rest. So, it’s time to put away the bright phone screen during bedtime – and create an ideal sleep environment with these 4 tips!
Light plays a significant role in tuning your circadian rhythm, which is your body’s internal clock that signals when it’s time to sleep. When it’s bedtime, you want to keep your bedroom as dark as possible to maintain a healthy circadian rhythm. Eliminate all light sources possible. This includes turning off your lights and bedside lamp. If exterior light brightens up your bedroom at night, blackout curtains can help to block it out.
Other important light sources to eliminate are your electronic devices, including your phone, television, computers, and tablets. These electronic devices expose your eyes to blue light, which can keep your mind active and make it more difficult to wind down before bed. If you need to keep a device in your bedroom, avoid using it for at least an hour before bedtime.
As bedtime nears, your body temperature will begin to drop as it prepares itself for a deep snooze. Keeping your bedroom cool also helps to cool down your body for slumber. Excess heat can disrupt your sleep, so it’s best to keep your bedroom temperature low. If you don’t have an air-conditioning thermostat to precisely control the temperature in your room, you can opt for a fan or keep the window open to circulate the air.
A messy and cluttered environment can generate feelings of anxiety that prevent you from getting quality sleep. It’s not surprising if you end up feeling stressed and overwhelmed every time you walk into your bedroom and think about having to declutter your belongings as they pile up.
Additionally, placing your work desk or exercise equipment in your bedroom can cause your brain to associate the space with other activities besides sleeping. For instance, having your office in your bedroom can keep your mind busy or anxious about work, since that’s what you will correlate the room with. Instead, your bedroom should be focused on making you feel relaxed and at ease.
To maintain a clutter-free bedroom, it’s a good idea to invest in storage solutions that will keep your belongings neatly in place. Maximise your space by doubling up the function of your bed for storage as well!
