A good night’s sleep is incredibly important for a healthy lifestyle. In fact, it is as important as having a balanced diet and a fitness regime. While there are those who require more beauty sleep, most of us require 6-8 hours of sound sleep to function as normal human beings. For a lot of people, despite counting sheep and having warm milk, sleep remains elusive due to causes that can be easily fixed by creating a bedroom that promotes sound sleep. Here is a complete list of bedroom essentials that you need for a sound sleep.


1) A Good Mattress

For sound sleep, a good mattress is the heart of the matter. These days a variety of mattresses are available in the market but choosing the one that will be the best for you can be tricky. This article gives valuable insight into picking a mattress that is a good fit for you. Also, in case you are allergic to the mattress material, but don’t want to invest in a new one right now, you can look at getting hypoallergenic mattress covers online to help keep yourself apart from any triggering materials as well as things like dust mites and molds. To take care of dust and mold, clean your mattress with a vacuum at least two times in a year.

2) Sleep-able Bed Sheets

If you have sorted your mattress, the next step is to get good skin-friendly breathable sheets. In India, where most of the country faces intense heat, bed sheets made of organic cotton not only feel great against skin but also, they feel cool. Apart from choosing right material, the other important thing to take care of with sheets is the washing cadence. Make sure that your sheets are washed after every 3 days so that accumulated dust does not hamper your sleep.

3) Right Head Rest

The bed pillows have a great impact on your sleeping posture. An incorrect posture can give you neck pains and fitful tossing and turning in the bed. This article is quite useful on choosing right head rest that will give you the 40 winks you require.

4) Dim Lighting

A key factor in regulating our sleep and our biological clocks is exposure to light or darkness. To transition from being fully awake to a relaxed state, ensure that you have at least one table lamp in your bed room with a low watt bulb. Dim lighting instantly relaxes senses, but still complete darkness is the best for sleeping. Also, invest in a blackout curtain so that you can still enjoy your sleep once the sun rises.

5) A Tranquil Atmosphere

Creating a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere decreases stress and anxiety and takes you a step closer to sound sleep. To create a calming bedroom - declutter your space, soundproof your room with heavy doors and windows, and turn off the electronic devices that emit light or sound.
