Setting Your Bedroom Up For A Night of Rest

There are more pressing problems on earth, sure, but the number of people that are struggling to sleep should be a concern. The rates of insomnia have been on the rise for some years, but then the coronavirus pandemic came along, and the numbers began to balloon

The good news is that insomnia isn’t just something that you have to live with. There are things you can do that’ll make it more likely that you can get a full 7 - 8 hours of sleep under your belt. In this blog, we’re going to focus on the bedroom itself, including how you can set it up so that it nudges you towards sleep.

Clean and Tidy

When we’re younger, it feels like we can sleep anywhere. The surroundings don’t have that much of an impact on us. But that all changes when we’re adults. Though it’s not true of everyone, the majority of us need to sleep in a clean and tidy place. 

If you’re not committed to regularly tidying up and cleaning your bedroom, then space might not be as pleasant to sleep in as it could be! It’ll only take five minutes before bedtime to get the room into shape but it might just have a big impact.

Regular Washing

As well as cleaning the room, think about cleaning your bedsheets. This is something that’s not always convenient and also easily overlooked, but it does make a difference to the quality of your sleep. We all know how much more comfortable a bed with freshly-washed sheets is! And apparently, people aren’t washing their sheets all that often...sometimes just once a year! Which is bad, no matter how you look at it. 

Buy two sets and wash one of them once a week. You’ll always have perfectly fresh sheets to sleep on.

Simplified Space

If your bedroom is cluttered, then you might struggle to fall asleep. No one quite knows why, but the more items there are in a place, the more difficult it is to relax. A chaotic bedroom will lead to a chaotic mind, and a chaotic mind cannot sleep! 

So look at simplifying your space. You can do this by investing in wardrobes that offer plenty of storage, and by removing any items that don’t positively have to be in your bedroom. 

There’s a reason why the minimalist approach became so popular...it’s conducive to relaxation!

Handling Annoying Sounds

Too noisy in your bedroom? No one wants to wake up in the middle of the night for any reason, least of all a car horn. Soundproof your room by adding double glazing windows.

The Right Temperature

Finally, have a think about the temperature of the bedroom. This can have a big impact on a person’s ability to sleep. If it’s too hot or too cold, then you’ll struggle! There are always ways to improve the ambiance of the bedroom. 

Adding insulation and a blanket will keep you warm; a fan will keep you cool on those hot summer nights.
