Create a Relaxing Bedroom
Make your bedroom a sanctuary. An easy first step: Clear the area around your bed of anything that doesn't delight or relax you.
Make a Dreamy Bed
You know how amazing it feels to sink into luxurious bed at a nice hotel -- crisp sheets, fluffy pillows, comforter like a cloud. Make your own bed feel equally indulgent without spending a mint. Invest in 100-percent-natural-fiber sheets such as cotton or linen (they're soft, breathable, and long-lasting) and new pillows every year or two. A thick new mattress topper is another easy way to give an older bed new cushiness. Add decorative pillows and layers of linens to accentuate the relaxing look.
Relax your senses
Reserve the top of the bedside table for sights, sounds, and scents that help you settle down and chill out. What deserves a spot? A lamp that gives off soft light, delicately scented linen spray, and something to play soothing tunes or audiobooks.
Create a Pampering Station
Turn a nightstand drawer into a bedside spa with rich balms to smooth lips, hands, and heels. Include emery boards, nail clippers, and cuticle nippers for nail-maintenance needs. Add an eye mask with a relaxing scent or cooling properties to soothe weary peepers. Tuck a microwaveable, scented neck pillow in the drawer for nights when you need a little stress relief before settling down.
