Research has shown that we spend a third of our lives in bed. Yet, why is it that most of us wait until the rest of our homes are “done” before completing the master bedroom? As a designer and busy mom who respects the benefits of a good rejuvenating sleep, the best part of my day is unwinding in my bedroom. It sets the tone for the quality of my rest. I wake up in a relaxing environment and get ready in a space that I feel great in. And in a circular fashion, it also sets the tone for the rest of my day. Do you see how starting and ending your day in a nourishing personal sanctuary can affect your overall general health? September is considered a stressful month. The days are shorter, the light is lessening, we are busier and we tend to spend more time indoors. Pamper yourself by investing in your bedroom this fall. You future self will thank you for it.
