But First, Rule Out Heath Factors

 All your hard work revamping bedroom for the ultimate night’s sleep won’t turn you into Sleeping Beauty if you have an underlying health issue that is preventing you from sleeping well. Conditions such as sinus infections, pulmonary conditions, and even restless leg syndrome are likely to cause sleep disturbances and impact your sleep. Snoring might not keep you awake all night, but your sleep partner might beg to differ. Chances are, they are very familiar with your nocturnal symphony. Snoring may be a symptom of a more serious problem that could be at the heart of your sleep issues. If you suspect you have an underlying health issue, check out or see your GP or ENT specialist to rule out anything serious. 

Sleepy Scents

Fragrances such as jasmine, sandalwood and vanilla have long been shown to promote sleep. Not only do these fragrances aid relaxation, but the presence of these scents in your bedroom could even improve your sleep quality. Burning a scented candle for an hour or two before you switch off for the night introduces a soothing, subtle scent into the bedroom. Just ensure that you remember to blow out the candle before you actually fall asleep! 

Try a reed diffuser for a different subtle for of sleep-promoting fragrance, with the added benefit of not having to risk your curtains catching alight! If you prefer fresh fragrances to dried or oil-based, you might like a vase of fresh flowers beside your bed.

Dreamy Lighting 

Reviving sleep begins with the release of melatonin—that’s a hormone produced by your body to signal to your brain that the day is over and it’s time to shut down for the night. Even if you can’t feel the effects consciously, you may be causing disruption to your body’s delicate balance of melatonin if you allow bright lights in your bedroom in the evenings. Whether you use a high-wattage light bulb in your ceiling light or you read your favorite novel on an iPad screen before laying your head down, exposing your eyes to bright light can significantly disrupt your melatonin cycle. Get creative with bedroom lighting ideas. Gentle fairy lights, or low-wattage lamps are a great, stylish solution, both dĂ©cor-wise, and for the sake of your zzz’s.

Whether you’re a chronic bad sleeper, or you only occasionally struggle to sleep, making a few of simple updates to your bedroom could help you get your sleeping on track.
