How To Get The Best Night's Sleep
Sleep is important, sure we like to stay up late from time to time and dance the night away, but we know that it is just as vital to get some beauty sleep. Some people are lucky enough to be able to fall fast asleep (don’t you hate those guys?) but what about the rest of us? We toss and turn and roll around, before just giving up and laying there exhausted, waiting for the sun to come up.
There are lots of reasons why you might not be able to sleep, but one of the easiest to fix is to have the perfect bedroom setup. But where do you start? How do you take your bedroom from a great place to sleep to the best place to sleep?
Get rid of the clutter
A messy room is never going to the ideal place to sleep. Not only is going to feel more cramped, but rather than relaxing in bed ready for sleep, you will be looking around at all the things that you need to do. Cleaning and organising isn’t always the most fun thing to do, but it is important. Especially in a room where you need to feel ready to rest!
Ban the blue light
We know that we need the dark to be able to sleep, but we forget that one of the most harmful things to have at bedtime are our devices. The blue light that is kicked out by starting at Instagram or Twitter on our phone tells your brain that it is time to wake up and face the day. Which is the exact opposite of what you will want to happen at bedtime. Stop using your devices about half an hour before you go to bed and your brain will be ready to say goodnight.
Buy good quality sheets
It goes without saying that we all love a bargain, but if there is one thing that needs to be spent on, it is our sheets. Comfortable and soft sheets are going to be so much more enticing to get into than cheap, stiff sheets. This means that you should try and invest in good quality sheets. Not only are they more comfortable, but they will also wash brilliantly and will last for a long time, which means that they are a definite future investment.
Make it smell good
We often underestimate the power of smell, but when you want to go to sleep, the aromas around you could be the helping hand that you need. Lavender is one of the best out there, it is known to decrease heart rate as well as your blood pressure. Both of which is what your body will do whilst you sleep, so encouraging these feelings is a great way to remind your body and brain that it is time to switch off and recharge.
Want the best night's sleep ever? Make sure that your bedroom is ready and waiting to welcome you and find that you drop off quickly ready for the day ahead.
