When it comes to falling asleep, what your room looks and feels like can make a big difference. The sights, sounds, and even smells in your bedroom can affect how you feel about sleep, as well as the quality of your sleep throughout the night.
With this in mind, we have created the essential bedroom guide.
Declutter Your Space
It’s easy to let piles of papers and clothes accumulate in the bedroom, but you want your sleep space to evoke calm, not remind you of your to-do lists. Keep your room uncluttered and visually pleasing. Take time to arrange the furniture, and design your bedroom so you feel relaxed when you enter.
Choose Ultimate Comfort
The materials in your sleep space surround you all night long, so their touch and scent are important. Choose sheets, pillowcases, and pajamas that are comfortable on your skin. Keep these materials clean (we recommend washing them once a week), and try soaps with different scents to find the ones that are most pleasant to you.
You could try misting Febreze® Sleep Serenity™ Bedding Refresher on your sheets to help create a calming and relaxing environment as you wind down from the day.
Keeping your room slightly cool (around 68˚F / 20˚C) helps your body wind down for sleep. Make sure the air is fresh by either keeping a window slightly open at night, or letting air circulate during the day.
Febreze Sleep Serenity Bedroom Mist is ideal. As you start to doze off, the soothing fragrances will help maintain your perfect bedroom atmosphere.
Turn the Lights Down
Your body is attuned to light cues, so be conscious of light sources inside and outside your bedroom. Have a dim lamp in your room to use before bed, and cover or turn off any lights from electronics within the bedroom. Use darkening shades or curtains to block streetlights and early morning sun rays.
To complement optimal lighting for a complete relaxing environment, Febreze Sleep Serenity Bedroom Diffuser provides alternating scents at regular intervals so that your brain continues to register and react positively to the sleep-enhancing scents.
Go Screen Free
It’s easy to get caught up searching, reading, and sending messages on electronic devices, but these activities tend to energize, not relax, your mind. Keep your computer and television out of your bedroom. Falling asleep while watching television can disrupt sleep, especially if you have to wake up to turn it off and resettle yourself. If you use your phone as an alarm clock, avoid engaging with it during the night if you wake up.
Fill the Air with Fragrance
Incorporate fragrance into your bedtime routine to help you relax and unwind. Febreze Sleep Serenity collection's scents in Moonlit Lavender™, Quiet Jasmine™, and Warm Milk & Honey™ help create a soothing bedtime atmosphere. The products eliminate odors and fill the bedroom with long-lasting, relaxing scents that don’t overpower. The variety of product forms means there’s a perfect solution for you.
