• Color Therapy Will Guarantee You the Best Sleep of Your Life!

    Color therapy is something you need to know if you want an amazing night’s sleep! You can think about and plan color schemes all you like, but we all know what it’s like to go through a day without enough sleep. Yep, horrible. It’s wonderful to have guest blogger Niight Wind write about using color therapy to get the best night’s sleep just by following a few simple rules.

    How to Decorate for Peaceful Sleep

    What if the way you decorate your house could help you sleep better, wake up energized and lose weight? Color therapy also known as chromo therapy, has been around for over 2,000 years and it can do just that.   

    In today’s world it is used by Doctors and Holistic Practitioners alike.  Today I will be focusing on how you can use these healing properties in your bedroom. 

    The average person spends over 100,000 hours of their life sleeping, why not make those hours more pleasant and work for you.

    Colors for Healing in the Bedroom

    1.  Difficulty falling asleep is common in this busy stressful world, shades of blue, green and violet are great for calming the nervous system.  These colors are considered cooling and help lower body temperature as well.  The average person sleeps best with a temperature of 68 degrees.
    2. Sometimes waking up is hard to do, especially if your bedroom gets morning shade.  Help increase your energy and want to wake up, with the color gold (not the metallic one, but more of a muted orange yellow and white combo) or muted yellow.   These colors are bright but neutral promoting a sense of increased happiness and well being without over intensity.

    Avoid these Colors in the Bedroom

    1. Red is associated with anger and can cause an increase in temper and irritability.  It is also known to increase blood pressure and appetite.  (Not recommended in the kitchen.)
    2. Even though most apartments come in the color white, it is a color that has an expansive, etheric quality that can cause flightiness and difficulty sleeping.  I recommend adding a light tint of another color to your paint to make it less harsh, or adding heavy grounding furniture.

    Tips for Integrating Color without Changing your Wall Color

    1. Large pictures with the recommended color can really change the energy in a room.
    2. Put a decoration or object with the color in an area where it will be the first and last thing you see when you wake up and go to bed.
    3.  If you do not like the color but would still like its affects, get sheets in that color.  They will not be seen by you, but there is a still a strong affect from the energy the sheets give off to you.
    4. If you have a different color that makes you feel great already and it is not listed above, use it.  After all the whole point is to make you feel good.

    Have fun playing around with color in your bedroom.  Let me know how it works for you. If you need more than color therapy, think  about the other elements in your bedroom, like the amount of light or sound coming into the room that might be disrupting your sleep patterns. Of course, you should think about your mattress, do you sleep on your back or your side? Sleeping on your back needs one type of mattress and mattress topper; if you sleep on your side you want to make sure you find the best mattress toppers for side sleepers. Sleep is so important, you need to make sure you get the best night’s sleep every night.
