There are many variables that professionals attribute to their success. There’s luck, hard work, the drive to reach goals, and of course, the people who helped them along the way. Some of the aforementioned things have been instrumental in helping them get to where they are now.
But recently, experts have documented another factor that has the potential to influence your work and personal life: the right bedroom ambience.
Sleep Solutions highlighted seven elements to help you create the perfect bedroom ambience that will make all the difference in terms of sleep quality. Although the ideal bedroom differs depending on personal preference, all these elements hold objective weight in factoring in the effectiveness of room’s ambience in terms of your sleeping habits.
We also shared in our post ‘Could Your Bedroom Decor Be Sabotaging Your Sleep?’ an insightful article from The Huffington Post which suggests that aside from the seven elements, external variables also impact the ambience of the bedroom. One such force is outside noise. No matter how soundproof the bedroom is some forms of outside noise can still seep through which can then disrupt your sleep.
Plus, like in any other part of the house, external stimuli are present in bedrooms as well. The most common is dust, which could cause fits of sneezing and coughing that can disturb sleep. Some people even have difficulty getting back to sleep once they’ve been woken up in the middle of the night, thereby leading to lack of rest which can impact productivity the next day.
The sleep expert Paul Gringras who provides scientific advice for Leesa stated in a blog post that a good night’s sleep is vital for productivity in the workplace. It was emphasised that good sleeping habits boost creativity, reduce stress, and help in keeping a healthy lifestyle, all of which are vital in order to perform well in any given industry.
To obtain a good night’s sleep, you must be surrounded by a relaxing environment. The right bedroom ambience can make all the difference in your quest for rest, from the placement of the bed to the dimness of the lights. A bedroom that you cannot sleep in will ultimately lead to a stressful day at work, making it difficult to easily achieve your goals.
So with all these various elements and outside forces that determine the quality of a bedroom’s ambience, how do you ensure that your bedroom will give provide the right environment for a good night’s sleep?
The Sleep Hub provides a number of tips to achieve a good night’s sleep. For starters, quality and comfortable sheets are a must. Not only should your sheets be compatible with the sensitivity of your skin, but it should also help in warding off allergens.
To minimise light from outside, it’s also recommended to have blinds or fully-lined curtains that can block out the light. You can also protect your eyes from bright lights by having your walls painted or covered with warm and calm colours. Bright and vivid shades might affect your ability to fall asleep easily.
Finally, for houses with built-in thermostats, don’t forget to configure the auto-scheduler feature if possible so you won’t have to get up multiple times to adjust the temperature throughout the night. Experts have found that the appropriate temperature for the body varies as you sleep, so it will be easier to set certain temperatures depending on when you sleep and what time of the year it is.
