Inspire relaxation in your bedroom and promote a night of deep, restful sleep with our top 5 tips:
Keep Your Room Clutter-Free
What we surround ourselves with is often an indication of what is going on in our life. We are more likely to allow clutter to build up when we are stressed, anxious or feeling down. It can feel like a chore or low on our priority list to keep on top of it. However, keeping your room clutter-free can help to reduce stress, promote feelings of peace and tranquility and increase motivation and productivity levels. Most people tend to feel a sense of calm and order. Relaxed AND motivated? Yes, please.
Play With The Senses
Set the mood in your bedroom with candles and essential oils. The flickering of a candle is a soothing visual to focus on when winding down and the ritual of it can play a vital role in signaling to your body that it's time to sleep. When it comes to scents, we recommend diffusing lavender, cedarwood, vetiver and ylang-ylang - which are known to help support sleep quality.
Invest In A Quality Mattress + Linen
A good mattress will gently support your whole body and keep your spine in a neutral position – no matter what position you're lying in. But it's not just about the mattress, it's about what goes on top as well! Linen is temperature-regulating, anti-static, anti-bacterial and acts as a natural insulator. We sustainably source ours from Normandy, France where it is stonewashed for extra softness!
Bring Your Room To Life
Add natural elements to your home to promote a night of deep, restful sleep. We love to adorn our rooms with air-purifying plants and ventilate it with fresh air during the day so that at night, our rooms feel clean and free of any built-up odors from the day (like cooking dinner!).
Our favourite air purifying plants are:
- Devils Ivy or Pothos
- Aloe Vera
- Peace Lilies
- Rubber Plants
Create A Zen Zone
This is especially important when winding down of an evening. We've shared before that an important part of a nightly routine is a meditation practice, and this is because of its ability to ground, center and quieten our minds. Create a space in your room that is dedicated to your meditation practice. It could be a chair in the corner, a pillow on the ground or even just your bed. Dedicate this space to unwinding and relaxing.
