8 Easy Ways To Make Your Bedroom Healthier

8 Easy Ways To Make Your Bedroom Healthier




1.  Paint Color

Stay away from brightly colored accent walls and stick with grays, blues, and even greens. Make sure you get paint that has little or no VOC’s (volatile organic compounds), which can cause dizziness and headaches when in the air.


2.  Get Blackout Curtains

These are my favorite! Our body’s internal clock is tied closely to sunlight and having light come into your room can cause you not to sleep as well. 

3.  Turn and Clean Your Mattress

Turn it so the head of the mattress, is now at your foot. This helps keep the mattress more balanced and keeps the wear more even, which increases the mattresses longevity! 

4.  Keep Your Bedroom Clean

Clutter creates dust. Dust can disrupt your breathing. 

5.  Sleep Sounds

I use an app called PZIZZ. This app plays calming music that helps you calm your mind and induce sleep. T

6.  No Screens!

Did you know that phone screens, computer screens and TV screens mess with your melatonin secretion? So if you’re having trouble sleeping, this could be the culprit.


7.  Move Your Alarm

Stop hitting the snooze button and make sure you get up when it goes off. To ensure this, place your alarm clock or phone across the room and set it to when you have to wake up. “While hitting it feels pleasurable in the moment, it can confuse your brain and leave you feeling worse as the day goes on,” says Dr. Daniel Barone, a sleep expert at the Weill Cornell Center for Sleep Medicine at New-York Presbyterian Hospital.
