Sleep is a key part of healthy living. Just like eating right and exercising, sleeping is essential to having a positive lifestyle. Sleep affects a person’s mood, relationships, productivity and quality of life. It is known that the average person sleeps about 7 to 8 hours every night. So then why do so many people neglect the place where they spend one third of their lifetime?
Creating a sanctuary for rejuvenation is an important aspect for every home. This does not have to be a time consuming and stressful endeavor.
Selecting the best mattress is a matter of individual taste. While some people prefer a softer mattress, others prefer something with a little more firmness. The important thing is that an individual gets enough undisturbed sleep throughout the night without tossing and turning, and waking up in the morning feeling stiff and groggy. Since a mattress is a household item that will last a long time and is important to an individual’s well-being, make an investment, and purchase a quality product.
Next comes selecting bedding basics such as pillows, comforters, mattress pads and featherbeds (http://www.pioneerlinens.com/scandia). When it comes to selecting pillows, if a person is a side sleeper, it is best to choose a firm pillow. If they sleep on their back, choose a medium fill pillow.
For stomach sleepers, a soft fill pillow is best. As far as comforters go, this should be selected based on the climate and the standard temperature in the house. There are many wonderful down filled blankets available with various fill-powers (the amount of loft or down in a square inch) that are perfect for all types of climates.
Finally, when it comes to dressing the bed, it’s not only about how the fabrics feel against the body, but how the bedding ensemble evokes a feeling of serenity and calmness. No matter what a person’s taste or style, whether contemporary, traditional or anything in between, there is bedding fitting for everyone. Again, luxury bedding is a matter of personal preference. However, it is important to keep in mind that all fabrics are not created equally.
Each fabric has its own characteristics that need to be taken into consideration. Natural fibers, such as linen, bamboo, silk, cotton, wool are noted for their versatility, strength, absorbency, breathability and comfort.
When creating a bedroom sanctuary, remember to be smart, be creative, have fun and make it personal. Your body will thank you. Sweet Dreams!
