Tips On Getting Your Bedroom Right For Dreaming

Tips On Getting Your Bedroom Right For Dreaming

Dreaming can be a pleasure when the dreams are good ones. You will wake up more relaxed and positive about the day ahead and even draw inspiration as some famous artists and thinkers past and present do on a regular basis.

Dreaming however doesn’t come easy to many people and even those that can have dreams will find that certain conditions are required to have the kind of lucid dreams that bring all the positive effects.

The first place to start when creating the right conditions to dream is the bedroom. So your bedroom needs to be at least comfortable enough for you to drift into REM sleep long enough. This isn’t going to be easy if you find yourself waking up several times a night.

Trying to sleep in a double bed with a fidgety partner is probably going to harm your chances so buying a larger bed could be all you need to do to achieve more REM sleep.

Secondly you will need to making the room as dark as possible. Try thicker curtains to stop light from sleep lights filtering in. If your sleep is regularly disturbed by noises, try earplugs.

The bedroom air temperature should also be kept cool enough to allow you to sleep comfortably but not so cold you get woken up by draughts.

In preparation for bedroom try to relax and don’t take work to bed with you. All of this will not only help you dream more but also get a better night’s sleep.

How To Get Sleep Fit This January

How To Get Sleep Fit This January

The New Year for most people means a fresh start. This is commonly the case when it comes to fitness, eating, drinking and even marriages but what about sleep? Does anyone even consider this equally important part of our existence?

If you do find yourself struggling when someone asks you what your New Year’s resolution is you could always say to sleep better. If the person asking happens to find that funny, you can say with confidence that it’s the best place to start when you are trying to improve most areas of your life.

Getting enough sleep means you will probably eat less. Science has shown that we tend to eat more when sleep deprived and at least some of this overeating is done when we’re spending more time awake at night. Munching on bowls of crisps late at night is never good for the waist line.

It is also a fact that sleep is a vital component when it comes to recovery from exercise. Getting enough sleep time is vital to maintaining fitness and building muscle.

The cause and effect relationship is less clear when it comes to marriages and drinking but the latter will certainly have an impact on the quality of sleep. You may even find that you become more tolerant of your husband or wife if you are not too tired to put up with them.

How A Dry January Can Help You Sleep Better

How A Dry January Can Help You Sleep Better

You may already be craving alcohol if you are attempting to go through a dry January but there are plenty of reasons to stick with what has become an annual tradition of abstinence.

A common misconception about alcohol is that it helps rather than hinders your sleep. How many times have you been out on a session only to end up falling asleep on the sofa? It’s easy to see why how we can be misled into thinking alcohol is good for sleep. Some people even rely on it and there is no doubt alcohol has this effect but this is outweighed by plenty of drawbacks.

These include disturbed REM sleep. REM sleep is important for the brain and if you are not getting enough of it, your memory and mental functioning can suffer. The problem with alcohol is it will put you to sleep, but this is unlikely to be a deep sleep.

Over indulgence can also lead to hangovers and stomach problems which can also get you up at night. Add to this the diuretic effect alcohol has and you could find yourself getting up several times during the night.

The best thing you can do for a good night’s sleep is cut out alcohol altogether or at least drink in moderation to limit the negative impacts.

2019 Bedroom Trends

2019 Bedroom Trends

The bedroom like other rooms in the house will see an evolution in design in the coming months, so what can we expect to see this year?

Luxurious fabrics, fixtures and fittings
One thing we are still likely to see in 2019 is an abundance of luxury fabrics which has been an enduring trend in recent years. From velvet headboards, cushions and curtains, a style influenced by the bedrooms of the wealthy celebrities where no expense is spared on luxury.

Four posters are due for a comeback
Nothing says luxury bedroom more than an elegant four poster and beds that make a statement are going to be the must have in 2019. Beds are of course the centrepiece of any bedroom and designers are constantly looking for ways to make them more than just furniture to sleep on. From tv beds to innovative storage beds, we will again see plenty of new models hitting the market to tempt buyers into changing outdated beds this year.

Design with a conscience
Alongside the trend for luxury we will also see the growing influence of eco conscious design with liberal use of natural materials and colours. With the future of the planet now firmly in the spotlight people are becoming more aware of how materials we often take for granted can have a significant environmental impact.
