With a new year quickly approaching, many of us are choosing to take stock of our lives, questioning if there are any changes we would like to make to our lifestyle in order to better streamline our surroundings and the happiness we feel within that. Your bedroom is the ideal place for relaxation and restoration, and is an excellent starting place to help you create an inner sense of calm. Which is why we want to share with you exactly how you can create a calming bedroom space for 2017! Minimize to Revitalize A lot of us take comfort in “stuff”, but the truth is – is that clutter can actually create an inner sense of frenzy. Visual stimuli causes the brain to over-think and be in a continual state of processing. So by all means - surround yourself with art, images and knickknacks that mean something special to you, but minimize it as best you can in order to optimize the room in your home intended for rest. Invest in the Right Mattress Investing in a new mattress seems like something a lot of people put off until their bed has nearly sprung a spring. However, investing in the right mattress could mean the difference between you just “sleeping”, and you truly RESTING. You spend about one-third of your life in bed, so it’s incredibly important to make that time count for the purpose it’s intended for. And because our Simmons Beautyrest and Serta mattress galleries are the largest in the Lower Mainland as well as in the Okanagan, and offer the perfect blend of latest technology and comfort, we can guarantee you a wonderful night’s rest when you invest in the right mattress! Frame Your Mattress with the Right Bed Frame Having the right mattress is the ideal first-step in creating a restful bedroom, but simply throwing that mattress on the floor is less than ideal. In fact, without the right frame to support your mattress you will not be maximizing your mattresses ability to support your spine and deliver the full comfort benefits they provide. So ensure you invest in a bedroom set that will properly and beautifully support your mattress – creating a space you will love to sleep in! Get Out of the Limelight Having bright lighting in your bedroom can actually stimulate your retina at night, causing your mind to come awake unnecessarily. So ensure your nightstand offers you a space for soft lamp lighting, and allow your bedtime routine to quiet the mind and better prepare it for slumber.
