When the lines are blurred between home and office, make sure you keep your bedroom a sanctuary. Sam Lincaro gives tips how to.

Restful sleep is definitely one of the most luxurious things you could have these days. But it’s been one of the most deprived things for many, especially with the anxieties brought about by the pandemic. It’s even worse for those who battled COVID-19 or those who are a carer for COVID patients. I have personally experienced being sleep-deprived for weeks when my dad was fighting the virus a few months back. I had to step in as his carer to prevent my mom from contracting the virus, too. I was overthinking about it on top of other things which led to anxiety and sleep deprivation. 

But the good thing was I was able to bounce back by rechanneling my focus into making my bedroom a restful haven. It was a huge help in coping with the stress and getting enough sleep back.

With everything that’s been going on, getting enough sleep should be on top of your wellness priorities and it’s only just right to think about switching things up in your bedroom to make it a restful one, right?

Here are some tips that might help you make your bedroom restful. 

Color it with calming hues

Your bedroom walls are literally the largest thing in your room. They should set calming vibes in such a way that they makes you breathe and think easily. This also applies to your linens. Try going for neutral tones like white, cream, or beige. 

Fill it up with comforting scents

A nice-smelling room is an absolute treat! A scented candle or a diffuser with a vanilla or lavender scent on your nightstand helps soothe your sense of smell, making you fall asleep faster.

Lighting is key

Go for three-way lamps or bulbs with dimmers so it’s easy for you to switch the intensity. Soft lights have their way of lulling you to sleep. 

Grow some greens in it

Let nature in your bedroom! The presence of greenery in your bedroom helps exude a calming vibe. Try letting some snake plants in as they are known for being a natural purifier, emitting oxygen at night that helps you sleep better.

Keep it clutter-free

Lastly, your bedroom is where you begin and end your day, so might as well keep it well put together. An organized room clears your mind, helping you think better when you’re just about to have a good night’s sleep. 

While some of you may have settled for a completely different bedroom theme according to your preference, what’s important is that you’re doing something to address the sleep struggles that work well for you. After all, it’s all about comfort and wellness!
