Sleep is a vital aspect of our daily routine, and getting enough sleep is essential for a better quality of life. One thing you can do to improve how well you sleep is to declutter your room, as clutter overwhelms our senses and can make it trickier to relax and fall asleep. This article from House Beautiful includes eight things listed by experts to take out of your bedroom.
Relaxation is important for your bedroom, which is supposed to be your safe haven. Paperwork and other work-related clutter are a reminder of stress, so should be moved to a different room. If you work from home, it is essential that you do so elsewhere if you can and do not leave anything relating to your work in your room, saving the bedroom for rest. Speaking of unfinished business, put away the books you’re not currently reading too. Screens emit a blue light which can keep you awake longer, it is for this reason that scientists advise you don’t stare at a screen before going to bed. Decluttering expert, Helen Sanderson, advises removing technology from your bedroom altogether to prevent the temptation to use it when you’re supposed to be relaxing.
Your bedside table can easily become a storage space for anything you had in your hand before going to bed, quickly getting buried beneath glasses, books, and beauty products. It’s best to keep this area free and use it only for the essentials you need easy access to. Similarly, don’t turn the space beneath your bed into an alternative loft. So many of us store the items we don’t want to see but also don’t want to throw away underneath the bed, which further increases the clutter in our bedrooms. Decluttering expert, Vicky Silverthorn, advises using storage boxes if you can’t put these items elsewhere. This will at least keep the area tidy. You should also sort through your beauty products from time to time, everyone has a selection of makeup and skincare products, which they know they rarely use. These can also go out of date after a few months, so if it’s any older than six months it needs to go.
Vicky also recommends clearing your wardrobe of out-of-season clothes. There is no need to keep a pair of shorts or a crop top hung up in your wardrobe over winter, so why not put them away elsewhere for a few months to save space for items you will actually wear for the current season? On top of this, piles of clothes should definitely be avoided if possible, as this is another example of untidiness which could keep you awake.
