Whether or not you’re a believer in New Year’s resolutions, carrying these healthy habits into 2024 will create a calm, restful bedroom environment and significantly increase your chances of getting a great night’s sleep.

Make your bed every day

Making your bed daily not only declutters and tidies up your room but also sets the tone for a calm, organised space and puts you in the right frame of mind for the rest of the day. As the ritual of preparing your bed becomes part of your daily routine, you’ll feel a sense of order and accomplishment. Plus the more you do it, the quicker it gets!

Keep a tidy bedroom

Research from New York’s St. Lawrence University indicates that a messy, cluttered bedroom can significantly impact your sleep quality and increase anxiety. Take the time to organise your space by categorising items into keep, donate, and recycle piles, and make the most of any under-bed storage. 

Remember to rotate your mattress

Add a reminder to your calendar to turn your mattress top-to-bottom (and flip it front to back if it isn’t single-sided) every three months to ensure you’re prolonging its lifespan and preserving its performance. Bear in mind that different brands have their own specific guidelines, so check yours. Read more about mattress care.

Check your bed is up to scratch

While you’re at it, check your mattress for any lumps and bumps, suspicious noises, or stains. Ask yourself if you are still sleeping as well as you once did. Is the bed still providing the comfort, space and support you need? If not, it might be time to change your mattress.

By incorporating these habits into your daily and seasonal routines, you’ll create a more serene sleep environment, positively impacting your overall physical and mental wellbeing – what’s not to love?
