How to Create a More Mindful Bedroom

While transforming your bedroom into an eco-savvy, holistic space might seem like a major undertaking, there are plenty of simple ways to make your place more mindful in a pinch. To prove our point, we put together a goof-proof list with five ideas to make your room a more conscientious place to be—no contractor or Feng Shui consultant necessary.

Buy eco-friendly bedding

A bit of eco-conscious bedding can go a long way in helping slow down the effects of climate change—and it can also make your bedroom a healthier place to be.  Invest in 100% organic and Oeko-Tex certified bedding, like our long-staple cotton sheets and duvet covers, to avoid spreading any harmful synthetic toxins around your bedroom—and the environment.

Employ Color Therapy 

If you aren’t already hip to the benefits of color therapy then now’s the time to smarten up. Research shows that certain hues can actually have positive psychological effects on people—think soothing blues, stimulating reds, and so on—so incorporating particular colors into your room can have more than aesthetic benefits. Try our luxe sateen sheets in lilac to sleep more soundly at night. Or opt for our classic duvet cover in mojito to bring both a pop of color and energy into your bedroom.

Avoid under-bed storage 

Ask any Feng Shui expert and they’ll tell you the same: under-bed storage is a no-no. The idea is that clean new energy needs to be able to circulate around your body to rejuvenate you while you sleep, which isn’t possible if the space under your bed is block by random storage items or worse—keepsakes from the past. Score some extra storage space in your bedroom with floating shelves or an over-the-door organizer (so you don’t mess up your chi).

Consider aromatherapy

Believe it or not, aromatherapy offers some serious health benefits. Studies suggest that certain smells, like lavender, rose, and sandalwood, can naturally reduce anxiety and increase energy levels and immunity. So do yourself (and your bedroom) a favor and light one of our mineral-based soy candles to instantly improve your attitude.

Go green

When all else fails, you can always count on natural greenery to make your bedroom a more conscientious place to be. Along with purifying the air, studies show that houseplants can reduce stress levels and boost your mood just by looking at them—so putting a few in your bedroom should be a no-brainer.

Creating a more mindful bedroom isn’t as difficult as it may seem. Simple actions, like buying organic bedding or decorating with houseplants, can help reduce your home’s carbon footprint and make your bedroom a healthier place to spend time in.
