How to Make your Bedroom a Self Care Haven

Sometimes it’s important to take a step back from your daily routine and consider adjustments that will help you to create a sanctuary at home where you can rejuvenate after a busy day. My tips on How to Make your Bedroom a Self Care Haven will help to improve sleep and relieve stress.

I personally find it really difficult to switch my brain off as I always have creative ideas swirling around my head, so I employ these self-care practices to help me as I’m going to bed…

Pick calming colours to help you unwind 

I personally love a neutral colour scheme to help me unwind, however you may actually find dark colours such as green and blue more preferable if you find it easier to relax in a cosy cocoon-like room. Whichever your preference, it’s important to remember not to overload your brain with too much stimulation or clutter, particularly in the bedroom.

‘Clean your space, clear your mind’ as they say.

Don’t underestimate the impact of good quality bedding 

Treat yourself to bedding that you can’t wait to get into.
Good quality bedding not only feels incredible but it’s actually more breathable too, making you less hot and therefore less restless because it allows you to regulate your temperature as you sleep. 

Kamla, a family run business, has been manufacturing premium bedding products for over 100 years and supplying to large hotels and brands. However they’ve now hit the UK retail market which is very exciting for us consumers, because we get to access the finest bedding for less.

They craft a 300 thread count sateen variety, made with 100% long staple cotton which is sustainably farmed using less water and green energy. Their products also have 0% plastic generation and for every five products sold, they plant trees with their business partner Tree-nation.

As you probably know by now I’m all about details and practicality, so I was impressed when I made my daughter’s bed and discovered ‘long side’ and ‘short side’ labels in their fitted sheets. What a brilliant idea!

Create your own spa at home 

As well as choosing bedding that feels incredible and a colour scheme that feels calming, consider how light, scent and noise makes you feel.
Unplugging devices, dimming the lights, lighting a gorgeous smelling candle or filling my diffuser with essential oils while reading a book or listening to relaxing spa music (just ask Alexa!) is such an amazing way to unwind before bedtime. I personally love a chamomile tea in my favourite mug too.
Keeping your styling purposeful and to a minimum can help to create a calming environment, so candles, stacked books and perhaps a little vase of flowers or wreath fills this purpose also.
