Many of us are unknowingly sleeping in a bedroom that’s simply not fit for purpose, and that environment could be the key cause of a restless night. Fortunately, it’s relatively easy to transform your bedroom into a space that encourages peaceful sleep. Read our tips to help you get the best night’s sleep possible.
Make sure your room is completely dark; use an eye mask, or blackout blind if need be. You should also maintain a cool temperature at around 16-18 degrees in your room. Create a space that’s your own; family photos, ornaments and flowers will make the room pleasant and will help you to relax, along with keeping your bedroom neat and simple. Our Napoleon range features warm, natural hues that can create a great homely atmosphere.
The foundation of a great night’s sleep is a comfortable bed. The right mattress can make a huge difference between a restful and restless night, saving you from fatigue and irritability for the rest of the day. An unsupportive mattress will encourage a poor sleeping posture, which prevents you from good sleep. If you regularly wake up with aches and pains, it’s probably time to change your mattress. A high quality bed, such as the Voltaire, can also make a difference when it comes to offering the right amount of support.
Gadgets and Displays
Say no to technology in the bedroom! That means avoiding televisions and computers. Having access to these will urge you to switch on when you can’t drift off, which in turn can lead to even more disturbed sleep. LED displays are particularly troublesome when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep, so why not opt for something like our Aviator mantle clock instead?
Sleeping on the right pillow can make a huge difference to how well you sleep and also how refreshed you feel the following morning. One of the most important factors in choosing the right pillow is choosing one that adequately supports your head and aligns your neck with your spine. There are many pillows designed to help people overcome particular sleep problems. If you suffer from allergies you may also wish to consider a hypo-allergenic synthetic pillow.
Moderate exercise on a regular basis, such as swimming or walking, can help relieve some of the tension built up over the day. Make sure that you don’t do vigorous exercise, such as running or weight training, too close to bedtime, as it may keep you awake. Yoga is renowned for its relaxation and sleep benefits, while moderate aerobic exercises have been found to help people fall asleep quicker.
