What a week and it's only Wednesday 😏. This is my extremely late #widn for Hollie over at @ourhomeandus 🙈, it's only been a few days!! So tonight I'm riding solo again as Al is on shift. Pops has kicked her super cool sneaks off and hopped in the bath and I'm admiring my succulent which is still alive ✌🏼. God knows how, it's had limited tlc 😂. It's been a while since I showed off my gorgeous floor! What are the lovely @our_home_at_applegate and @peoniecole.yorkshire up to this evening? (or whenever you get round to playing like me!!) #alwayslate#succulentsforlife#dayinthelife#ihavethisthingwithtiles
We spend a third of our lives in bed, so it goes without saying that our bedrooms should be as comfy as possible and double as a sort of oasis after a long, stressful day. This is even more important for us ladies whose moods are easily influenced by stress and anxiety. Here are 3 tips for turning your sleeping quarters into a haven where the magic happens (magic being rest, relaxation & rejuvenation of course)!
1. Be intentional with colors. If you’re prone to moodiness and struggle with energy, avoid dark colors like the plague. Forget the Cherrywood (or even the fire hydrant red!) and go for a calmer, refreshing color scheme. Blue shades are not only proven to be more relaxing, but they help fight insomnia and stress. Soft colors, like pastels, are an excellent choice as well and will help brighten up the room.
2. Let the light in! Do you ever notice how much heavier your home or mood is when all the blinds are closed? Fill your bedroom with sunlight or opt for a couple nice light fixtures with uplifting electric light for a more positive atmosphere. I really only close my blinds when it’s time for bed because even after the sun has gone down, the city lights make me feel less “boxed in” and more energized.
3. Splurge a little, especially on bedding. Now before you get mad at me, realize “splurge” doesn’t have to means dropping stacks. Good quality and comfort can be achieved at an affordable price if you’re willing to do the research. Choose cool (as in fabric) bedding that feels luxurious so that you sleep better and look forward to going to bed, just as you would at your favorite hotel.
