Mattress Factory’s top 5 tips to help you #RestForLess…
Light it up and say night baby…
Light is one of the most important external factors that can affect sleep. The “light sensitive” cells in the retina of our eyes are what tell the brain whether it is daytime or night time and sets our sleep patterns accordingly. Lighting is extremely important in creating ambiance in your bedroom. When choosing bedroom lighting, opt for LED lighting with soft amber brightness. This kind of lighting is also ideal for bedtime reading.
Consider windows as well. Invest in light blocking curtains in neutral tones. These not only block light and provide privacy, but really are an important part of creating that calm look and feel of your bedroom space.
Promote #RestForLess with bedroom scents
Research suggests that there are certain scents, derived from the essential oils of plants, that may be particularly effective for reducing stress and anxiety. The best ones to help ease your mood, promote relaxation and sleep are Lavender, Chamomile, Bergamot, Jasmine, Rose and Sandalwood.
These are available as pillow mist or can be used in a diffuser. Try out a few to find your match and keep on hand for when you’re having one of those days.
#FindYourMatch with a good mattress
