When styling our bedrooms, we need to be aware of the role that they play in our homes. It’s a place to seek romance, refuge, and relaxation. We all know that a good night’s rest is a key component to a successful start to our day. Yet, so many of us just plop under the blankets, turn on the television, or scroll endlessly through cell phone data.

Currently, I’m participating in Deepak Chopra’s 21 day meditation experience. In one of his lessons, Deepak explains that biologically sleep provides healing time for our body and mind. We now know, “that during sleep, the brain clears chemical debris and waste product in specific ways.” He further explains that meditation, or inward time, “is possibly the second most powerful healing time after sleep.”
Investing in a few key pieces for the bedroom is one of the simplest things we can do. Ease into sleep by quieting your mind, reflecting on a few things you are grateful for and what your intentions are for the next day. It truly is one of the best gifts we can give to our own self.
