Your bedroom is a place where you can do more than just sleep, but you also want it to be a place where sleep comes easy. It’s a place for romance, it’s a place for relaxation, and it should be a sacred place. That means leaving certain things out of the bedroom, like televisions and electronic.
Make your bedroom a place where your only thoughts are on relaxing things and sleep. You don’t need to be kept up by the sound of the television or by the bright screen of your smartphone. Leave those in the living room, and have the following things going on in your room, instead, for comfort.
Get The Right Bed And Bedding
A relaxing bedroom seriously starts with your bed, and the most important part of your bed is your mattress. When it comes to purchasing a mattress it’s important to do some research first. Look at online reviews, search best deals online, and take time to check the actual mattresses out at stores.
You also want comfortable bedding. If you get sheets made from synthetic fibers they can be itchy and uncomfortable. You also want blankets that aren’t too thick and heavy, and don’t stick to you or scratch you. Get pillows that help you wake without a stiff neck, but offer you the comfort you need (not too hot, not too soft, not too stiff).
Paint Your Walls
You want your bedroom walls to be a relaxing color. If you pick something too bright it won’t be very conducive to sleep. Think pale colors, for beginners. Take some time to learn what colors evoke relaxation. One of those colors is blue.
If you want to have art on your bedroom wall, make sure it is also relaxing. Bright and crazy colors will make your mind crazy.
Scents And Sounds Are Important
Your sacred space needs the right scents, sounds, and lighting. Bright lights in a bedroom isn’t going to help you relax. You want a small reading lamp if you plan to read at night. You may want to use candles for a romantic night in bed.
Sounds can help you relax and sleep, from relaxing instrumental music to the sounds of nature. Scents will also help with relaxation. Smells like lavender are made to help you relax and go deeper within yourself.
You want to be able to not only sleep, and find romance, in your bedroom, but you also want to make it a sacred place where you can unwind, relax, and even meditate. It should be a place that is sacred to you, where you can get inside yourself and slough off all the bad stuff from the day, and just feel extremely relaxed.
