Bedrooms should be a place that provides a sense of calm and tranquility. That being said, there could be a few items or aspects of your bedroom that are the root of some of your stress or anguish. From color schemes, lighting, to air flow, keep reading for our 4 items that could be causing stress in your bedroom.
Reducing Stress in Your Bedroom in 4 Easy Ways
1. Bold Colors: For your bedroom, the color palette should include soothing hues as opposed to palettes that are bold or ones that “pop”. Soft, muted tones like blue-grays, lighter greens, even blush tones create a zen-like feeling and can put you at ease.
2. Air Flow and Lighting: It’s true that we all love our privacy, but opening the blinds and letting natural light in can be a great way to start the day and help boost your mood. Even opening the windows and letting fresh air into the room can ease your stress level. Adding an air purifier can also prove to be beneficial.
3. Double Duty: If you’re using your bedroom as more than only a bedroom, like using some of the space as an office, can send mixed signals to your brain when it comes time to relax for the evening. Having your office in the same space as where you sleep can make it difficult to separate your work life from your home life.
4. Piles of Stuff: Piles of clothes in the corner, stacks of books, or shoes left out not only creates clutter in your room, but mental clutter as well. When your brain is trying to relax, it might start wandering to the dirty clothes that didn’t make their way to the clothes hamper. Avoid the distraction but putting items back in their proper place when you’re done with them, or finding a better place other than the floor.
Making these 4 changes can help to reduce the amount of stress your bedroom causes and put you on a path that is more conducive to a peaceful life style. Once you have your bedroom squared away, it’s time to look at other rooms in your home; even your cabinets can cause stress or headaches.
