Don’t worry, you don’t have to become a Feng Shui expert to make your room a sleep sanctuary.

Herbal oils and sprays such as jasmine and lavender can be found at your local pharmacy and are popular sleep remedies. As well as making your room smell gorgeous, jasmine is known for it’s calming effects, especially if you are stressed out, and lavender aids a faster and deeper sleep. Keep a small bottle of each by the bedside and sprinkle a few drops on your pillow – it will work wonders!

2. Cut out the light

The interruption of either natural or unnatural light is one of the main causes of a lack of sleep. Our blackout blinds are great for solving this problem as it cuts out all light (as long as there are no lights on inside!) so you don’t need to worry about street-lights or the sun peeking through. They’re easy to put up and take down so you can turn your room into a sleep sanctuary fast and effectively.

3. Keep it quiet

Noise is another important issue, but with our ear plugs, you can guarantee that you’ll have sounder sleep (they even come with a free eye mask!). They’re equipped with a special filter allowing certain sound frequencies to be heard, whilst limiting others, so whilst traffic and ambient noise can be kept at bay, sounds such as a crying baby or an alarm will remain sufficiently audible.

4. Reduce clutter

Remove all paper-work and clutter that could be making you stressed. For your bedroom to be a sleep sanctuary you need to make it all about sleep and relaxation, so limiting what you have and making the bed the focal point of the room will make it easier to shut off when you get in.

5. Keep it cool

Ever wondered why you sometimes wake up feeling shattered even though you’ve still had a decent amount of sleep? Sometimes this is due to temperature, as during your sleep, if you’re too hot or too cold, you’ll toss and turn and fall into light sleep rather than deep sleep, making it easier for you to wake and reducing the positive effects you need from enough deep sleep. The average temperature people tend to like when going to bed is 18 Celsius, but this can change from person to person. Just make sure you are comfortable with the heat of your room before deciding to climb in for a night of slumber.
