A Good Night's Sleep

BEDROOM IDEAS FOR A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP

Each person is unique, but your body needs seven and a half to eight hours of sleep a night in order to maintain good health. This goes beyond feeling rested--getting enough quality sleep is critical to your physical and mental health. While you’re asleep, your body is actually working to repair and revitalize your body and brain, all of which affects how well you think, react, work, learn, and even get along with others. Yet for far too many of us, a good night’s sleep can be elusive.

According to “The National Sleep Foundation”, some 60 percent of adults have trouble sleeping at least a few nights a week. Each month, Google reports millions of searches are performed for words and phrases related to not sleeping. This indicates epidemic levels of sleep deprivation. Here at Syona Home we take this seriously. Read on for our top tips to turn your bedroom into a haven for sleep.

Sacred Space

Your bedroom should feel inviting, a place you can’t wait to dive into. This isn’t the same as being interesting. In fact, the fewer distractions, the more likely it is that you’ve created an optimal sleep environment. Neutral colors and simple décor are all cues that tell your body the time for activity is past. One sensory element that can aid in sleep, however, is smell. Consider adding aromatic accents such as room atomizers or diffusers that can spread soothing scents such as lavender, chamomile and bergamot.

Mood Lighting

To truly make your bedroom a sanctuary, you should be able to achieve total darkness once you’re ready for sleep. Our brains respond to any amount of light, and this is especially true of electronic devices, so be sure not to have charging items giving off light in the room. But there are times you need to shed some light on the situation, especially when you consider that reading a book is an excellent way to start “powering down” for the night. A bedside lamp is crucial. Even if you don’t have an end table, it’s best to avoid overhead lighting during this phase of your evening. A floor lamp is one solution, and there are even small book lights you can hang over a book or a headboard. Be sure to avoid LED lights, however, because they stimulate the brain. All artificial light can interrupt normal sleep patterns, but LED and fluorescents lighting produces short, high-energy light waves that signal your body to awaken, and that can affect you throughout the entire night.

Get Cozy

What’s comfortable for you is subjective, and there is no “right” answer, just the choice that leaves you feeling best. Yet there are factors across the board that, if you keep in mind, will ensure maximum comfort. You will be spending a third of your life in your bed, so everything from the mattress to the pillows to your bedding should be right. For you.

If you’re waking up in the morning with low back pain you need to stretch away, you’re sleeping on the wrong mattress. If your neck aches in the morning or you have trouble looking from side to side, you want to invest in new pillows. And if you’re regularly overheating, your bed linens may be the culprit. Purchase the best quality fabrics and materials you can, so that your bed not only feels like a place you want to be, but makes you healthier throughout the two-thirds of your life you’re not in it. Organic materials mean lessening your exposure to harmful chemicals, and tend to feel more comfortable against the skin.

Your bedroom should be a sanctuary, where you find the kind of respite from the outside world that allows you to enjoy a full night’s slumber. Check us out on Instagram and share your photos of your bedroom haven with us using #goodnightssleep.
