A handy way to make help you get that much-needed rest is to have a place that is the ultimate sanctuary.
So, if you want to create the perfect haven, check out these tips on how to achieve it.
If your room is uninspiring and cluttered, then having a refresh is the ideal solution. You could declutter to help make space for new furniture or chat with your parents about redecorating your whole room. You could help choose everything from paint color to adding a new tall radiator to save space. If they’re down for it, you could also help out or DIY the space to make it truly yours.
2. Create a technology-free zone
Life is digital, and we can’t seem to have five minutes of peace from social media or emails. However, this constant phone use could be affecting your sleep pattern, especially if you find yourself scrolling for hours when you should be sleeping. Although it’s not always possible, why not try adding a technology-free zone to your bedroom or have some time without it each day? Instead, read a book or get creative with photography or arts and crafts.
3. Tidy room, tidy mind
Teenagers get a bad rap for being untidy in their bedrooms, but that doesn’t have to be the case. Tidying little and often can help to keep the mess at bay. Plus, it also helps to calm the mind. Before you go to bed, why not have a small tidy around the room, so you don’t wake up to mess in the morning? This helps to make you feel at ease as soon as you wake. A tidy room is also great for limiting distractions when you’re studying.
4. Create a calming atmosphere
Your bedroom should be a place you want to be, so it’s important to set the right mood. This can include everything from keeping the temperature ambient to having the best lighting for the situation. A bedroom is often a multipurpose room for a young person, so you’ll have your sleep sanctuary, your study space, and a chill-out zone to think about. Each can have its own unique elements to help separate the areas, and you can do this with furnishings or home accessories.
5. Choose cozy bed linens
There’s nothing better than sinking into your bed at night, so a great way to enjoy it, even more, is having cozy bed linen. There is a host of options to choose from. Plus, there are plenty of styles to match your bedroom décor. Opt for natural and soft fabrics too, as these can help regulate temperature and keep you warm in the winter and cooler in the summer. These coastal bedding, linens, and throws bring the comfort and calm of the beach and countryside to your room, creating a soothing environment that is conducive to relaxation. Bedtime is always better when you have bedding that looks stylish and supercomfortable. High-quality linens resonate a siren’s call that lures you to the warm and snuggly embrace of your bed.
