Decorate Your Bedroom to Improve Your Mental Health
With so much going on in the world at the moment, it isn’t surprising so many of us are struggling to maintain a positive mindset. Luckily, science has proven your environment has a direct effect on your mood and manipulating design elements in your bedroom can help you feel better.
Color Affects Mood
According to psychologists, color directly affects mood. People react differently to warm colors (shades of red, orange, and yellow) and cool colors (shades of blue, green, and violet). Warm colors tend to excite the senses and metabolism, while cool colors relax them.
One way to improve your mental health is by introducing blue into your bedroom. It has a calming effect and studies show it can even lower blood pressure. Perhaps it is because we associate it with the sky and the sea, but a soft blue 100% cotton duvet cover set will certainly help improve you unwind.
Of course, that doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite colors. Just limit warm colors to accent pieces and accessories in the bedroom.
Tone Down Texture
Texture also affects mood in the bedroom. Flowing fabrics and soft textures are preferable to a room packed with strong textures. Your bedroom should be a place to relax, not excite the mind.
If you love texture by all means use it, but try to stick to a monochromatic palette. For instance, this modern quilt set with contemporary quilting works well in off-white. Add a shaggy white carpet and bed skirt against creamy paint on the walls to soothing vibe.
Focus on Your Bed
Build a place where you can escape and heal. If you’re unsure of where to start, new bedding is the easiest way to refresh your room and it needn’t cost a fortune.
Just take a look at this sumptuous Flower Field Reversible Duvet Cover Set in relaxing blue. For under $55 you can have a new duvet cover, pillow shams, and coordinating sheets! That’s a pretty affordable solution to improve your mental health.
Feng shui practitioners also suggest you position your bed on the opposite side of the room from your door. This helps align the physical environment with your spiritual energies.
Add a Touch of Nature
Spending time in nature naturally busts anxiety and stress. While you may not be able to bring a woodland or field into your bedroom, you can introduce some natural elements.
A pleasant botanical duvet cover set in soft green as well as a few potted plants can help lift your mood. Scientific studies prove house plants can decrease stress levels and who wouldn’t want to climb into a soft, inviting bed graced with natural patterning?
Keep It Light
Bedrooms don’t need to be dark and moody. In fact, that’s the opposite of what you need when you’re feeling down.
A crisp, bright bedroom feels light and airy and it instills calm and ease. Look at how uplifting this bedroom is when using the light-colored Efflorescence and Snowdrops Reversible Duvet Cover Set. Lighten your bedroom and it will lighten your mood.
