Prioritizing sleep in the bedroom

Our bedroom used to be the place where we slept, but in today’s modern and technologically advanced world, our bedrooms have gone from tranquil places where we get our nightly sleep to command centers. The amount of technology and entertainment we have brought into the bedroom is amazing, especially when you realize that all of these distractions aren’t helping you relax and unwind, it’s causing you to get disruptive and poor sleep. It’s time we reclaimed our bedroom, creating a place where we are prioritizing sleep, not technology.

Technology is ruining your sleep

The first thing we need to do is to get rid of technology in the bedroom. No more iPads, iPhones, Androids, tablets, TVs, or other devices. Anything with a screen is going to be disruptive to your sleep. If you need to catch up on your social media or the news or look at cute dog videos, then you need to find time before bedtime to do so. Once you go into your bedroom, you should be preparing to fall asleep, and screens work against that goal.

Set the right temperature

You don’t want your bedroom to be too hot. It’s better to leave the temperature a little cooler to encourage better sleep. However, every person is different, so play around with the temperature to find your sleep temperature. If you share a bed, you’ll need to find a temperature that works for both of you. If one person likes it cooler than the other, we suggest working with comforters and blankets so that everyone can get the best sleep.

Simple and clean ambiance

When you decorate your bedroom to improve sleep, keep it simple and clean. Work with light colors, making the room feel tranquil and serene. Remember: it’s about getting a good night’s sleep, so the bedroom should be a place where you feel relaxed and at peace. Too much clutter or dark colors can make a room feel cramped and prevent you from getting the best sleep.

Comfortable bed

The final step to getting the restorative sleep you deserve is to get a bed with a comfortable mattress, sheets, pillows, and blankets. Our Dreampad comes in a few varieties, ensuring that there is a comfortable pillow that works for every sleep style.
