YEP! You heard me, bedroom makeover. I am sure you are wondering if it is remotely possible to makeover a bedroom. I tell you, it is. Did you know that your state of mind definitely contributes to how good you look and feel about yourself? If you feel crappy, even when the world tells you you look great, you will never believe them. Why? Because you just don't feel that way. That is why where you live, especially your bedroom; what you wear and what you eat is extremely important to your beautiful appearance.
That is why today, we will be talking about a better-sleep bedroom makeover.
Your bedroom is where you spend most of your days, outside work, right? Therefore, it is important to have the right colour shades, lighting and accessories. If your workplace is somewhat like mine where you can't quite distinguish the day from the night until well, when you step outside, you will need a bedroom that calms your senses down and helps you rejuvenate. You and I know that sleeplessness or inadequate sleep hampers your health, just as it destroys your beauty. To guard against that, you will need to do the following.
Clear out the clutter. Clear out stuffs you don't need and most importantly, get rid of the clutter under the bed and areas you can see while lying on the bed. You know what? Your bedroom is a place of relaxation and romance!
Rearrange bedroom. Relocate the desk in your bedroom. Keeping a desk in your bedroom will make you feel like you are constantly working. You may also want to place the mirror in your bedroom in the bathroom or somewhere else because mirrors in the bedroom can bounce too much energy, making it hard to unwind and rest at night.
Make it dark and cool. A naturopathic sleep specialist at The Institute of Naturopathic Sleep Medicine in Seattle, Washington, Dr Catherine Darley advised that you make your bedroom as dark as possible, cave-like even. Meaning? Use light blocking shades in your room and get rid of LEDs on electronics, and light on clock. Because when you look at the clock each time you take a piss at night, your mind keeps doing the math of how much sleep you can get and you may be so upset that you will end up not sleeping.
Colour it accordingly. Did you know that the colour of your walls or bedding can influence the quality of your sleep? Calm, relaxing shades do help to calm nervous system and help you sleep easier. Use cool colours like blue, purple, gray, silver, green, neutrals because they help lower blood pressure and heart rate to help ensure a proper night's sleep.
Pay attention to your other senses. While we typically focus on what we see in the bedroom, it is also important to focus on what your other senses experience there as well, says Christine Lakas, an interior designer, producer, and set stylist for HGTV, DIY, and Fine Living Network, and owner of Premier Design. For instance, what do you hear in your bedroom? Ideally, the room should be quiet, but sound machines or relaxing music may help you nod off.
