It’s a truth we’ve been told time and time again: a tidy room creates a tidy mind. And when you are trying to get a good night’s sleep, you need a tidy mind more than ever.
Often, we allow far too much clutter to creep into our bedrooms. Enjoyable and uplifting during the day, these items can become a distraction to the tired brain. Televisions, tablets, and phones create a real danger that we mindlessly watch the next three episodes of a gripping drama, or scroll through social media, rather than giving ourselves the necessary time for sleep. Then there is the issue of the multiple lights emitting from these devices, disrupting our sleep further.
This cluttering of the bedroom has become even more common with so many people now working from home. Our bedrooms have become our sleeping-zones, our work-spaces and our places to escape to for a bit of peace and quiet. They are now filled with laptops, empty mugs, diaries and the pile of books we want to read.
This has all been very necessary, of course, but it is likely having a very negative impact on our sleep.
One of the quickest ways to put yourself in the sleeping frame of mind is by removing all distractions from the bedroom. When your workday draws to an end, remove your “desk area” from sight. Put all your work-related items in another room, or at least in a storage box for the evening. Allow your brain to turn off from the day’s events and the to-do list. Tidy and clear your surfaces, creating a calm, smooth ambience in your space.
Most importantly, make sure you have a bed that you trust. One that you can fall into at night, knowing that it will support you fully. One that adds to the simplicity you have created in the rest of your bedroom.
A bed, such as the Wyoming Bed, provides an excellent base. As part of the Endurance collection at Reinforced Beds, it comes with a lifetime guarantee; not only will you sleep well on this bed, but you can rest assured that it will support you for years to come.
Its single-colour, neat design will add to the calm, clear aesthetic of your room. Even better, the space under the bed provides perfect nighttime storage space for all that clutter, allowing you a peaceful sleep with no distractions.
