After hearing Ariana Huffington’s epiphany around sleep, followed by the latest study on delaying the start of school for students to a recent article validating that everyone is talking about sleep, it’s official –Sleeping in is IN! HHopefully, unlike most trends, this one is here to stay.
With a quick Google you’ll find tons of tips to set yourself up for success when it comes to sleep. To get started I’ve pulled the three below I found most affordable and feasible that will leave both you and your space refreshed.
Plants are more than just décor
Plants throughout your bedroom are for more than just looks. In fact, there are more than 10 different types of plants that are perfect for slumber by emitting more oxygen to help you breathe easy and even filtering toxins from the air.
Sleep’s signature scent is lavender
Studies show that Lavender can decrease heart rate and blood pressure, potentially putting you in a more relaxed state ( National Sleep Foundation). You don’t have to add another plant to your space to get the benefits. Grab scent packets, oils, diffusers, wax burners or simply apply lavender lotion before bed.
Good sheets = Good sleep!
Although a “controversial topic”, I believe you don’t have to spend a fortune on sheets to get the benefits of good sleep.Vicki Fulop, cofounder of Brooklinen, recently shared with Vouge Magazine that although thread count does count when it comes to comfort, it is not the most important factor. Find the right sheets that work for you and care for them as instructed. This will ensure you sustain a consistent comfort and will leave your sheets smelling fresh, which is also shown to improve sleep.
