With just a few quick and simple changes, you can optimise your bedroom to be the ultimate environment for encouraging high quality and restful sleep.
It’s better for your room to be a little on the cooler side when you’re trying to sleep – a comfortable 22 degrees should do the trick.
You can enjoy better quality sleep when you have ventilation in your room for fresher air. Issues around things like mold have been known to connect with insomnia and excessive sleepiness during the day.
Light tricks our brain into thinking it’s time to wake up, so make sure you block out any light sources at night (that includes screens!).
Alongside neutral tones, cooler colours like greys, lavenders and pale blues help to lower our blood pressure and heart rate.
Use rugs to soften footsteps, or a white noise machine to block out external noises that may disrupt your sleep.
