Your bed. The place we retire to in an evening to hopefully get a well-rested night’s sleep. It’s where we go to recharge. But, most of us, are sleeping on a bed that just isn’t doing it for us. By that, I mean comfortable and inviting. So I thought I would share with you five fixes to make your bed more inviting. This should lead on to you gaining a better night’s sleep and waking up feeling refreshed and ready for the day.
How does your bed look?
One way of fixing your bed is thinking about how it looks. Does it look inviting? Do you just want to jump in snooze away? Or does it appear messy or unmade? It’s all psychological, but if your bed space isn’t inviting and messy then you’re likely to have a poor night’s sleep. The way you can change things up is by adding some nice soft furnishings like pillows or throws. Even just getting into the habit of making your bed each morning will make it much more inviting some bedtime.
Does your bedroom space appear relaxing?
It’s impossible to close your mind down from the day in an untidy space. So as much as your bed needs to be inviting your bedroom space needs to be tidy and relaxing also. It doesn’t mean re-decorating or spending money. Just making sure the bedroom space is clear and tidy will be an excellent place to start.
When was the last time you changed your mattress?
I bet many of us can’t answer this question accurately. There is nothing wrong with that. But to have a more inviting bed where you are guaranteed a good night’s sleep, then looking at your mattress would be an option. Replacing it with something more comfortable or suitable for your needs. Some people have the opinions that they are sleeping better thanks to Amerisleep. It’s something to consider that is for sure.
Is your bed linen making you too hot or too cold?
When you are asleep, there is nothing worse than feeling too hot and sweating. Or equally feeling shivery and too cold. This may have something to do with the material of your bed linen. Work out how you feel when you are asleep and then invest in some new bed sheets made from a material that helps you achieve it.
Is your bed big enough?
Finally, the last thing to consider is whether your bed is big enough. I appreciate that the space you have may not allow you change your bed size. But if it does it is something to consider. You may have a partner who takes up quite a bit of space for one reason or another. Maybe you require more space. Changing your bed could mean a better night’s sleep for all involved.
I hope these fixes help make your bed more inviting. Sometimes it’s the simple changes that make all the difference. If it does, then I am sure you will see improvement in your sleep patterns.
