7 BEDROOM HYGIENE BLUNDERS TO RECTIFY THIS EASTER

We know you would rather laze around all day during the Easter break; you would want to catch up on all the rest you can get. However, we are advocating for you to instead take the time to work on some bedroom blunders you might have been committing.

WASHING YOUR BEDDING AT THE WRONG TEMPERATURE

It is not enough to have quality bedding. It is important to maintain your bedding correctly, and proper maintenance includes washing your bedding at the right temperature. Because we often spend a lot of time in bed, our bedding can get dirty from an accumulation of sweat, dead skin cells, and dust. Your bedding should be washed at a pretty high temperature, preferably at 60 degrees, to properly kill any germs and/or bugs that might be stuck to them.

EATING IN BED

Easter break will be a period you will be extremely tempted to have all meals in bed. However, you should note that having a meal or snack in bed would mean having crumbs left on the bed after you are done eating. These crumbs could accumulate and begin breeding bacteria on your bedding. If it’s a daily habit, you should try to quit that habit and also educate your kids on why it is wrong to eat in bed.

NOT WASHING YOUR BEDDING REGULARLY

It is recommended that you wash your bedding every week. This is so that you can get rid of whatever dust mites might have accumulated on your beddings throughout the week. Washing your bedding regularly will help you prevent allergies and skin conditions.

FORGETTING THAT YOUR MATTRESS NEEDS CARE TOO

A lot of people often forget that the mattress also needs to be taken care of. You should have your mattress dusted as often as possible, aired regularly, and washed occasionally. This would help to get rid of germs that might accumulate and cause allergies.

LAYING YOUR BED BEFORE DUSTING YOUR ROOM

A lot of people make the mistake of arranging their beds before cleaning their rooms because it seems like a logical sequence of arrangements.  However, stripping your bed after you have dusted your room would help you dust out any dust that could be raised and spread onto the bed while you were dusting the room.

CUDDLING WITH YOUR PET IN BED

Pets can be pretty cute and resisting cuddling them can be a chore but we strongly advise that you don’t do any cuddling on your bed. Pets shed and tend to attract bugs and cuddling them in your bed can mean getting the shedding and/or bugs on your bed.  This is a recipe for a build-up of bacteria that are harmful to you.

IMPROPER VENTILATION

It is important to maintain proper ventilation in your bedroom. It not only does good for your respiration, but it also helps to avoid a build-up of mould and unpleasant odours in your room. Even with an air conditioning unit installed in your bedroom, you should make sure that you sometimes open up the windows to let in the fresh air.

These blunders have effects on your health and your quality of sleep so working on rectifying them is important. You can take advantage of the Easter break to work on them and develop new bedroom habits.

SORT OUT YOUR SLEEP ROUTINE, THIS EASTER

The Easter break is a period you can use to wind down from all the stress of working and chasing the dough. It is a period you can use to develop a good sleep routine that will generally improve your quality of sleep.

SPEND AS MUCH TIME IN SUNLIGHT AS YOU CAN MANAGE

Even though you would probably rather spend all day cooped up in bed, it is important to note that exposure to sunlight during the day is a great step to take to improve your quality of sleep. According to Healthline, the human body has a natural alarm clock known as the circadian rhythm and adequate exposure to sunlight makes an impact on your body and hormones that lets you know when to stay alert and when it’s time to sleep.

EVALUATE YOUR BEDDING ESSENTIALS

We know you’ve not had the time or even been in the frame of mind to consider how your bedding essentials are or how they’ve been affecting your sleep routine, so we are encouraging you to take advantage of this break to think about the following: do I have the right bed frame and mattress? Am I using the right bed sheets, pillowcases, and/or duvet quilts? How often do I take care of my beddings? All these are questions you should take the time to think about and provide answers to. Good and quality bedding essentials will not only improve your sleep but will also encourage a healthy sleep routine.

AVOID USING ELECTRONIC GADGETS IN BED

Yes, we know that technology is now the rave of the century and it can be pretty difficult to let go of your gadgets while you are trying to get that much-needed sleep. However, we also know how badly these gadgets can affect our quality of sleep. Exposure to blue light; the light that is produced by electronic gadgets, can keep the mind alert for a long period therefore affecting the amount of sleep you can get. You want to ensure that you keep your devices away from your bed area so you avoid exposure to blue light.

CREATE THE RIGHT SLEEP ENVIRONMENT

Your sleep area is another factor that can have a great impact on your quality of sleep. Clean sheets and duvets, clean pillowcases, quiet, calm, cool, and dark bedrooms are all qualities that make for an ideal sleep environment.

DEVELOP A PRE-SLEEP ROUTINE TO HELP YOU RELAX

It is important to engage in activities that can help you relax before bedtime. Think of calming activities that you can engage in before bedtime that would help you relax. Some examples include; reading a book, drawing yourself a scented and relaxing bath, listening to calming music, meditating, and so on.

BUILD A SLEEP ROUTINE YOU CAN BE CONSISTENT AT

Your Circadian rhythm can get messed up if you would need to change your sleep routine again. You should start with a routine that you can be consistent at, even long after the end of the break.

RELAX

Don’t panic about not being able to sleep the moment you lie in your bed, it gradually puts your mind in overdrive. Take deep and calming breaths and slowly empty your mind of thoughts.

Have a Happy Easter and remember that your sleep routine can make the right impact on your quality of sleep.
