Is your Master Bedroom a relaxing, tranquil place that you can’t wait to get to after a very long day? Or is it cluttered with paperwork, electronics and other belongings that make it feel just like any other room in the house? If you said no to the first question and yes to the second, you are not alone. Most people do everything in their bedroom from eating to working to talking on the phone. Oh yeah, I almost forgot sleeping, lol!
We are almost completely through our 2 weeks to a clean and de-cluttered home and you have done a fantastic job. You should be getting used to your “new” lifestyle now and I know it feels great to be clutter free! So, today we are going to work on your master bedroom and take some simple steps to turn it into the peaceful, comforting space that it should be.
TIP 1. Your bedroom is where you begin and end your days. It should be kept stress free!
When a room is cluttered it can easily become a chaotic place that you just can’t relax in. Your bedroom should be a calm, stress free place so that you can start and end your day with a clear mind and relaxed body. I know a lot of people like to watch tv or use their laptops in bed until they fall asleep, but this is the biggest change you should make. Leave electronics outside the bedroom. Using phones, laptops, tablets, and TV’s shortly before you go to sleep can disrupt your sleep pattern without you even realizing it. Try reading a book or even meditation before bed.
TIP 2. Clutter equals stress
Put away your clothing instead of leaving things strewn about the room. Keep nightstands clear of clutter and debris. If you read in bed, keep one or two books in your room, the rest can go back into the bookshelf.
TIP 3. Everything looks better from a room with a view
Try to position your bed facing the window. Being able to look out the window and see the sky can be very soothing.
TIP 4. The nose knows
Certain scents can be very calming and comforting to certain people. Choose your favorite scented candles, room sprays, essential oils or even your favorite flowers and put them in your room. You may find yourself more relaxed and your room will be much more inviting. Remember, never leave candles burning unattended.
Your assignment for today is to turn your chaotic clutter into a soothing sanctuary! Focus on colors and decor that make you feel calm and at peace. Make up your bed with comfy bedding, add your favorite scent, make work off limits, and tell technology you will see him in the morning, because this is your zen zone now!
