The quality of sleep you have has a direct impact on your mood and performance, and yet too many of us suffer through poor sleep and fail to make a change. There are a number of environmental and personal issues that can contribute to your quality of sleep, but today we are going to look at the one thing we can control - your bedroom. By transforming your bedroom into a sleep sanctuary, you might find that the evening routine is more enjoyable and sleep comes more easily. Now, let’s discuss how you can start your bedroom reinvention.

Necessary items only

We tend to accrue a lot of bits and pieces in our bedrooms and rarely do they actually serve a good night's sleep or aiding rest in any way. If you would like to reinvent your bedroom to be a sleep sanctuary, then only have items that are necessary to this goal and cull the rest. Your bed, bedside table, book, and other necessary bedroom items should be what you aim for. Work, study, and recreational items can live in the communal rooms of your house as they are only going to distract you and keep you from sleep.

Optimal lighting

Lighting has a significant impact on our mood, with harsh bright lighting making us alert and dimmer lighting readying us for rest and sleep. Your bedroom lighting should be soft and warm, and you might need to try a few light bulbs to get the right glow for your room. Don’t get too carried away with your dim options as you want to be able to see your pages if you are reading a book, listening to a visual mindfulness podcast or seeing what time the clock says. A dimming function can be particularly useful so that you can control your lighting at each stage of the evening.

Incorporate scent

Each of our senses is stimulated every minute of every day, but none more powerful than our sense of smell. It can trigger memories, feelings, and can even change our mindset and mood to be more susceptible to deep sleep. Keep some essential oils in your bedroom that you can put in an oil diffuser, spray on your pillows, or even wash your pyjamas with so that you can condition your mind to prepare for a night of deep sleep. Don’t expect to love every sleep scent you test, as they will not appeal to everyone. When you have chosen the right sleep scent for you, you can start to cleanse your room with these aromas and see what impact it has.

Invest in quality

There are so many things that can very easily keep us from sleep, and so you want to be giving yourself every comfort so that you are not going to struggle to doze off. By investing in quality bedding, you are setting yourself up for comfortable rest and eventual sleep. An uncomfortable mattress and cheap manchester are not only going to cramp the style of your home, but it will give you a poor night's sleep and won’t set you up for a good day ahead. If you are on a budget, sign up to some email newsletters and wait until those quality brands go on sale to get a bargain! 


Every adult is eternally chasing the best night's sleep, but we have to be prepared to put the effort into making that possible. Follow these tips and see if your sleep improves, and tweak whatever tips do not work for you and your schedule. Life can be full of ups and downs, but if we get our sleep and mood right - then there is no saying what we can’t take on.
