Ideal Bedroom to sleep!

Create an ideal bedroom to sleep!

1. Lighting: If you can get dimming lights that make it easier to decrease the brightness later into the day. If you do not have this you will want to turn off overhead lights and just use a small bedside lamp with a soft glowing bulb. You do not need to turn your room into the red light district but the warmer the bulb glow the more conducive to sleep it will be.

2. Curtains: Proper curtains are important. You want to get your room as dark as possible. Darkness stimulates melatonin production in the brain and the more it’s exposed to light the more melatonin is suppressed. This is why avoiding electronics late in the day is important as they emit blue light which prevents this melatonin release.

3. Room color: It matters a lot. You want to create a sense of calmness and color can help with that. Before we talk about colors, this is why you may be better off removing things like computers or exercise equipment from your room if you have them. It can cause distractions. These things tend to not be related with being calm and you want to avoid reminders of stress. Color wise the most soothing type colors to create a good environment include: Lavender, Pale grey, Cool blue,pink, Beige.

4. Temperature: It may seem appealing to have a warm room as that may make your drowsy to sleep better but that’s actually not an ideal temperature. Your room should be on the cool side. Your body temperature naturally drops as your drift off to sleep so keeping a cooler room can help jump start the process, make it easier to fall asleep, and help you get a deeper sleep.
