The Environment We Sleep In: Do We Pay Enough Attention To It Or Are We Becoming Obsessive?
Getting a good night’s sleep is crucial to our survival. Our very existence depends on our bodies being able to replenish themselves.
A suitably, healthy sleeping environment, therefore, is as vital as a healthy diet, getting enough exercise and keeping our stress levels as low as possible.
In today’s hectic climate, we rush around all day and then flop into bed at night, to restore our energy levels for the next busy day ahead of us and so, the cycle repeats. Perhaps, at these times, the last thing we want to think about is the danger that our bedroom could be putting us in. How many of us have actually stopped to think about the safety of our bedrooms?
The design of our bedroom and the items we put in it need careful consideration. It is so easy to overlook the impact of electrical wiring surrounding our beds or the obstruction by the door but these things all pose their own set of threats to our well-being, health and safety, and ultimately, our quality of living.
It is a commonly known fact, that most accidents happen in the home and a surprising percentage of these mishaps occur in the bedroom. One of the reasons for this is that we often wander around our bedroom in a state of semi-consciousness, first thing in the morning or last thing at night - so it makes sense to arrange the room without any obstructions and to eliminate as many risks as possible.
It is essential to have a clean air supply in your sleeping quarters at all times. Leave the door open and/or open a window slightly. In winter, use additional bedding such as an extra blanket to keep warm.
Whilst considering the safety of your bedroom it is important to bear everything in mind and to be rational. Those who suffer from serious allergies maybe advised by their GP or consultant to use organic mattresses and flannel sheets or Egyptian Cotton Sheets as opposed to conventional mattresses and sheets, however, the dangers faced by most people are minimal and eradicated completely, when the room is adequately, ventilated. In this respect, the ‘dangers’ found in a bedroom are no different to those found in any other room.
Obviously, it is never a good idea to smoke in bed and fire and smoke alarms should be present all around your house, whether you smoke or not but if you are still worried, it might be a good idea to purchase Fire Retardant Bedding for extra security. Fire retardant bedding (or FR bedding) is proven to give users more time to evacuate a room before a fire sets in and can be a lifesaver in itself in certain situations.
It is all too easy to become carried away whilst examining the contents of your bedroom furniture, evaluating the benefits of a wooden bed as opposed to a metal bed and vice versa - but it is important to remain realistic. Perhaps, a more realistic approach would be to consider the firmness of the mattress itself, rather than the materials in the base of the bed. Whilst it is advisable to err on the side of caution, maybe the most important things to consider when designing your bedroom, are the practicalities such as comfort, warmth, hygiene and cost.
Egyptian Cotton bedding is a quality product which allows the skin to breathe and does not cause allergies of any kind. Egyptian Cotton Sheets are the most hygenic sheets available on the market. (Ask your grandma and she will tell you to always use cotton sheets and underwear!)
