It’s incredible to think that we spend about a third of our lives in bed. This makes it all the more important to ensure you get a good night’s sleep every night, aiding your mood, attention levels and appetite for the next day. However, if you’re struggling to drift off or stay asleep, then it’s time to rejuvenate your sleeping space. Here are a few tips to go eco and help create a healthier you and a healthier planet, so you can sleep easy:
1.) Perfect Furnish:
De-cluttering over-crowded surfaces is a great way to freshen up your bedroom. To still create a warm, cozy feel adorn your room with light, comfortable furnishings, such as upcycled blankets, throws and rugs, and re-cover cushions using spare materials. A softer, clear bedroom will mean a clearer mind, allowing you to shut off more quickly at night. You’ll be sleeping like a baby again in no time.
2.) Go Green:
Potted plants placed around the room will circulate the air and help to reduce stuffiness. Fresh flowers will also emit uplifting light scents, deodorizing the room naturally without the need for chemical aerosols and sprays, and will certainly brighten up the look of your bedroom too.
3.) Smart as Paint:
Decorating your bedroom with soft, neutral tones will help instill a sense of calm and tranquility into your sleeping haven. Consider using natural, non-toxic paints, which don’t produce harmful, pungent fumes and so are better for the earth and you.
4.) Good as New:
Before you chuck out that dusty old bedroom dresser or table, why not give it a quick coat of pure wood oil, or some colored natural paint? This will give your vintage piece of furniture a great visual lift and a whole new lease of life, adorning your newly spruced room.
5.) Mattress Matters:
The best way to ensure a good night’s sleep is to have the best and comfiest bed, so your body can stretch out and relax as you sleep. Mattress Online offers some fantastic eco-friendly mattresses, such as cooling organic cotton. Natural mattresses ‘breathe’, reducing the amount of harmful toxins inhaled from regular processed, synthetic mattresses. These can help to reduce some respiratory problems, ensuring your soothing sleep is a breath of fresh air.
Making some eco bedroom-friendly changes will make a big difference to your sleep, health and well-being. These are just a few ways to help you snooze while you help the environment, so the rest is up to you.
