It is the last place you see before you go to sleep and the first thing you see when you wake up. It’s where you spend a third of your day. It’s your bedroom, and you’re probably not using it to its fullest potential. There are slight alterations that you can start making today so that you can start being more productive tomorrow, and they all have to do with fixing your bedroom.
Freshen Up the Place
So often, people become nose-blind to the smells around them, and nowhere is that more true than in your own home. Treat yourself with houseplants or all-natural essential oils so that you can walk into your bedroom at night or wake up in a pleasant aroma.
This slight change will put you in a more positive mood and thereby make you have a better day or a better night’s rest, which can also lead to a better day. If you don’t feel like going out and buying an air freshener, then you can always make one yourself-it’s really not that hard to get a fresh new aroma in your life.
Freshening up can also mean tidying up the space. A cluttered or messy bedroom makes the brain anxious and gives it a lot to worry about, preventing you from quickly falling asleep or getting any real work done in there.
Get rid of old things that you don’t need by selling them or donating them to charity and you will feel so much better when it’s all said and done. And who knows, maybe this cleaning spree will be the debut of your new, improved, most productive self!
Color Yourself More Productive
We don’t often realize it, but certain colors affect us in certain ways. Keep this in mind as you look around the walls of your bedroom. For instance, if you haven’t been your most productive because you’ve been feeling down lately, your dark blue walls might be to blame.
Try switching to a lighter shade. If your bedroom is a shade of gray, then you might not be affected at all, but you could maybe switch it to a more positive, tranquil shade of green that will keep you calm at night.
Lighter shades of blue, however, are the most productive colors as they keep your brain engaged, so that might be good if you work in your bedroom a lot, but it’s an even better choice for a home office. But that’s an article for another day.
Check the Mattress
When was the last time that you bought a new mattress? Or a new mattress topper? Or new sheets? If the answer to any of those questions is “a while,” then maybe it’s time to consider going on a shopping spree for your bed.
Having a nice mattress or a high-quality mattress pad and sheets can be the difference between tossing and turning or sleeping like a baby, and no one wants to toss and turn. Your bed is the most important feature of your bedroom, and you should treat it as such. You deserve a good night’s sleep, so treat yourself to one (or all) of these new features for your domicile.
No matter how you decide to make small changes to your bedroom, you are bound to notice increases in your productivity levels.
Whether that’s by just tidying up a bit or whether that’s by buying a whole new mattress and mattress topper, making these adjustments are investments that are going to pay themselves off in no time at all with the higher levels of productivity in your life.
