For most of us the bedroom is our refuge, our haven at the end of a long day where we can go to relax, unwind and de-stress from whatever life’s thrown at us. It should be the most comfortable room in the house, where we can often spend hours at a time reading or treating ourselves to a luxurious lay-in every now and then. It makes sense, therefore, that the bedroom should be the most zen space in the home. If you’re looking to utilise your space to ensure that it keeps you as calm as it possibly can, here are our top tips for de-stressing.
Get a good night’s sleep
The key to staying stress-free is to ensure you get as much sleep as possible to stay rested and focussed throughout the day. Investing in a good quality bed is the first step to building a ‘zen bedroom’. For the added wow factor, choosing a comfortable bed from Divan Beds Centre also comes with the handy option to hide away any unsightly clutter – out of sight, out of mind, lack of worry!
Choose a shade to suit your mood
Calm blues and warm pastels have been proven to encourage a good night’s sleep, but if you’re looking for something to help you get out of bed in the morning and ready for a busy day, opting for an energizing colour will really give you the kick you need.
Keep things spick and span
This may seem like an obvious tip, but keeping a clean and tidy home really does make it a happy one! Just getting into a simple morning routine of making the bed nicely, or folding and clearing away any clothes from the floor-drobe before you go to sleep can really make a difference to your mood and keeping you calm in the bedroom.
Plant your way happy
Don’tconsider buying fresh flowers for the bedroom as they’ll only die quickly, leaving you with a feeling of distress and a build-up of dust and allergens. By planting some snazzy succulents instead, not only are they super low maintenance to care for, but they’ll also purify the air in the room. Bonus!
Buy a comfort blanket
Is there anything more soothing than wrapping yourself up in a thick shaggy blanket to snuggle away all your woes? Nope, didn’t think so. Whether you’re sick, stressed or just want to chill, splurging on a good faux fur or woolly blanket to cocoon in will lift your spirits no end.
Flood the room with light
A happy bright bedroom will be super-relaxing, so throw those curtains wide and let the sunshine stream in throughout the day to get some much-needed Vitamin D. By rolling up gloomy blinds and introducing breezy gauze curtains that flow gently, your bedroom will be feeling more and more like a calming yoga haven in no time.
