How to Make Your Bedroom Healthier To Get The Beauty Sleep Your Deserve


Yoga is great for winding down before bedtime

We might be well into 2013, but why not add one last resolution to your list?  Possibly the most important one; better sleep!  Better sleep can massively improve your quality of life, and here are's eight  simple tips to get a good night's sleep - for beauty's sake! 

Create a Yoga Nook

If you have the space, do a little rearranging to create a yoga and meditation nook. Having a designated spot makes it easier to relax and stick with your practice. It's also a great way to practice a 10-minute yoga series when you don't have time to go to the studio.

Use Scents For Sleep

Scents like lavender have been linked to a better night sleep. Spritz some lavender oil on your pillowcase or light a lavender-scented candle to help you relax and fall asleep faster.

Invest in a New Mattress

If you've been seeking a better night's sleep, it may be time to invest in a new mattress. In general, guidelines recommend replacing mattresses every five to 10 years, depending on your age. If you are noticing troubling signs, like waking up with aches, a new mattress is likely a healthy solution.

Keep a Bedside Journal

Journals are a great way to wind down and reflect on your day. They can also be used to set goals and document memories. Add a pen and journal to your nightstand so you can jot down those brilliant ideas or mysterious dreams.

Make Your Room Tech-Free

Although it can be tough to unplug, it's important to allow yourself time to unwind from your tech. Separating work from relaxation will help you sleep better and decrease anxiety. Also, the artificial light emitted from tech devices suppresses the release of the sleep-producing hormone melatonin, preventing quality Zs.

Keep the Colors Cool

Create a sleep sanctuary by keeping the colors in your room soft and neutral. A fresh coat of paint in relaxing earth tones or new bedding may be just want you need to feel well-rested and refreshed.

Add a Humidifier

Humidifiers are your best bet to combating dry air and reducing your susceptibility to infection. Consider investing in one like this Crane Drop Shape Cool Mist Humidifier ($50) for a variety of benefits, like glowing skin.

Declutter Your Space

A clean space creates a clear mind. Don't wait until the Spring to organize and declutter. Decrease stress by making sure everything has a space. Not only will this make it easier to unwind at night, it will also make getting ready in the morning easier, too!
