Romance Your Room for a Healthier Sleep
So I stumbled upon this amazing book: ‘Sara Snow’s fresh living. The essential room-by-room guide to a greener, healthier family and home.’ By Sara Snow. In her gifted words she provides practical ways you can green every room in your home, glorify the universe by lessening your carbon footprint outdoors and in your office, all while becoming more health-conscious about your daily habits. It was not a surprise when she began to speak about my favorite room in the home, the bedroom. Make your room that place you would always want to go to.
Tips for a healthy sleep :
Quiet is best
Aromatherapy! I use to be big on air fresheners. Just that nice smell that takes away the filthy smell you’ve probably inhaled all day.
Comfy, soft bedspreads like satin but if you sweat a lot then 100% cotton will do. Others; Bamboo, Organic cashmere.
Pillows- If you love the feeling of being embraced as you venture into the spiritual realm than adorn your bed with at least four comfy pillows or just two and one fluffy body pillow. Sadly, I don’t use one many a times
Much more important than you think. Get in the mood. Light tea light candles, lantern, or Christmas lights at least an hour before bed. No television. No computers nor iPad or mobile phones. Leave all electronics out of the room. My phones used to be my companion until I realized I need put them away to have a great sleep. I love to sleep in the dark!!
Get in the mood:
Drink some tea. Draw yourself a bath or a warm shower. Moisturizing your body will prevent dry skin.
A book, not newspaper, article, or magazine because anything-current events may cause high blood pressure in this society. I am not prescribing reading to bore you into sleep. It is to help the transition of your mind and to calm your spirit into a world of imagination.
Brush your teeth & use swishing oil “oil pulling” – a clean mouth surprisingly helps with thirst and relaxation.
You sure agree with me that a good sleep is good for your health right?
Romance your room for a healthier sleep.
