You might not realize it, but you’ll spend nearly one third of your life sleeping, so why not make the most of the time you spend in the room where it will take place. We take our bedrooms for granted, mainly because most of our friends and family will never spend more than a couple minutes in there at a time. Help yourself out with these tips on how to make the time you spend in your room more enjoyable, and more efficient!
Clean Bedside Table
If you use an alarm clock, like any normal human being, then this may be the first thing you see when you wake up. Eliminate any clutter that will create bad vibes as soon as you wake up. If you use a traditional alarm clock, then don’t make this the place you charge your devices, as it will immediately pressure you into checking your phone as soon as you get up. This will be especially helpful if you are someone who likes a drink of water bedside, as you won't be stressing about spilling it on your phone as soon as you wake up!
Choose Art Carefully
While most people think the color of the walls will affect your room the most, don’t forget that what you put on the wall will too. If your walls are filled with busy, jarring art, it will have a reflection onto your life. Choose art that shows the world who you are, but also doesn’t conflict with the paint scheme of your room.
Do you spend more time in your bedroom than most? Invest in a chair or two, so that you or your guests will have some place other than the bed to relax. The seat will also be a great place to put on your shoes, or prepare your bag in the morning when you really don’t want to stand anyways!
Double Window Treatment
If you live in the city, or work a late job and don’t wake up early, then you know the pains of trying to sleep with light coming in. Double up your curtains with shades to ensure that your rest won’t be disturbed. This will also keep the heat trapped inside as your windows can lose up to ten times more heat than your walls.
Control Your Tech
If the last thing you do before you fall asleep and the first thing you do in the morning aren’t the same, then congratulations you’re not obsessed with your phone like the rest of us! Create a space where you can store your phone and other electronics before you lay down to sleep. This will ensure they are charged and ready to go for the next day’s use. We all know our phones are killing our sleeping habits, so why not start off the year on a new foot?
