Happy Friday friends!
Well, we are on our way to the Outer Banks today and I will be back later next week. I wrote this post before I left, in conjunction with Tuesday’s post sponsored by Soft Surroundings. Let’s talk about the ways in which you can make your bedroom a peaceful place for the best night’s sleep. I think I must have sleep on the brain!
I may be in menopause. I’m not sure, I have a good idea, as last winter, I had to continually change my robe at night 2-3 times. Its too hard to tell right now, as I am on continuous birth control in order to keep my pelvis from dislocating. ( EDS)
I’ve had other symptoms.
Keeping cool and comfortable is a priority for me if I want a good night’s sleep.
What are the ways I make my bedroom a place that is tranquil and that I look forward to going each night?
Comfortable sheets and cool pillows. Who wants to be uncomfortable? Soft sheets and pillows that are temp controlled are wonderful for a peaceful night’s sleep. Soft Surroundings from the website; “We work with the best weavers in the world and design gorgeous patterns, prints, and embellishments to delight the eye and the touch. Our bamboo sheets are breathable and moisture-wicking. Our silk pillowcases and comforters are body-temperature regulating. See my post on Soft Surroundings Bedding from Tuesday.
A Quiet space. This means, no electronics. Ok, the tv is ok, once we watch one or two shows, but beyond that, I need silence and darkness to sleep. I have always been one that can’t sleep with the tv on. This is the time to put IG down, no more phone, and computer. So, watch Handmaids Tale before you get too tired.
No caffeine before bed. I drink my coffee in the morning. Before bed, if I want a little help sleeping, a cup of chamomile tea is always lovely before bed. Just don’t drink too much, as this girl gets up 3 times a night to pee! So, one cup if you want a light drink before bed to calm down the day.
Aromatherapy- I love diffusers and the smells that come from essential oils, and I love lavender. I have lavender bath salts, bubble bath, and aromatherapy oil. I also love orange and lemongrass. Your bedroom can appeal to the senses. A pretty scent is also a way to relax. This diffuser from Soft Surroundings is a lovely addition to the bedroom. Love this calming blend of essential oils for “relaxation”. I also love this Good Night essential oils blend, which contains lavender, promoting a sleep-producing scent
Create an inviting space. Your wall decor, lighting, bedding, and curtains should all be an example of the relaxing style. Patterns that are soft to the eye, soft colors and low lighting are great for a tranquil environment. We have HUE lights and tell Alexa to turn off the lights, can turn each separate light to 10%, or completely turn it off. Like a “glorified clapper”. 🙂 I also love fresh flowers as they are so pretty to look at, smell beautiful and can later be turned into dried flower designs.
Comfortable, cool nightgowns and nightwear make for an easier night’s sleep. Who wants to sweat? Soft Surroundings has some wonderful nightgowns I love the moisture wicking properties of this nightgown. I love the softness of this nightgown
Keep out the clutter. It’s important to have a peaceful place to rest your head, so clear away the clutter in the bedroom. That may mean recycling old magazines, putting clothes in the laundry, picking up the dog toys. I am much happier when my bedroom looks lived in, yet clean.
It really should be your sanctuary, somewhere you find peacefulness and can rest easy.
I’d love to hear in the comments, how you make your bedroom a tranquil place for the best night’s sleep?
