To help you with your mental health, we wanted to share some ideas for turning your room into a shelter for you and your mind. While sleep is important for mental health, the overall comfort and enjoyment of your surroundings also can have a huge impact.
Keep technology out of the bedroom
Scrolling on your phone before bed might seem like a harmless way for you wind down before bed, however, looking at your phone and engaging with screens stimulates your brain and makes it harder for your mind to shut off before lights out. If keeping technology out of your room isn’t possible, you can put your devices on Do Not Disturb so that your sleep will not be disrupted by phone calls and texts throughout the night.
Create ambiance with good lighting
Good lighting is key to enjoying the space you’re in. Natural light is a great way to soak up that Vitamin D, boost serotonin, and, ultimately, relax your mind. Overhead lighting can be harsh and disruptive, but having warm bedside lamps, candles, and good natural light are ways that you can make your bedroom more of a personal haven.
Invest In quality materials
It’s a good idea to keep your room aesthetically pleasing to you, so that you can feel comfortable enough to completely let go and unwind. Investing in quality art to hang above your headboard or getting a comfortable reading chair to curl up in are ways to personalize your space while being mindful of your mental health.
