Creative Ideas That Will Make Your Room Cool and Chic

Creative Ideas That Will Make Your Room Cool and Chic

No matter how much we love a room or our entire house, sooner or later it comes to a point when we get a little bored of the same things. Before you go overboard and start planning a whole redesign, even if you can afford it, consider small changes.It’s easier to start with the areas or corners you like the least or the ones not working with your everyday flow anymore. A little moving around, stacking, rotating, adding, or subtracting can result in desirable results. If more action is needed, grab some paint and give furniture – or part of it – a new face.

Using personal pictures and memories ensures for not getting bored easily, if you are strongly connected to what you see. There’s no need to keep the fine china or the expensive objects tucked away in cupboards either. Display everything you love proudly and let your home be a reflection of who you are and how you live. For everyone crafty and with spare time, DIY projects that cost next to nothing can be easily tackled. Adapt the colors and shapes to your likings and again, do whatever expresses your taste. For the harder projects that require more strength, technical knowledge, or tools, you might need some help.

Before hiring a professional, look among friends and relatives for someone who can help you for less money or in exchange of another task you’re good at. Let’s have a look at the easy ideas to help you transform any room.

                                                green pot

                                                  Don’t forget that in order to eventually love your home and not get bored easily, you should take your time. Reflecting and considering how you want it to look like should take much more time than doing the projects and changes. So go easy and start small, letting some time pass between each change, to see how you feel about each one. The last thing you want is go overboard with all of the projects above and end up hating how your space looks, after spending valuable time and money.

                                                  10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

                                                  10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

                                                  Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

                                                  Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

                                                  So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

                                                  Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:

                                                  Advertising

                                                  Video Summary

                                                  1. It is easier.

                                                  When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

                                                  2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

                                                  Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

                                                  3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

                                                  Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

                                                  4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.

                                                  Advertising

                                                    If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

                                                    5. It could lead to better sleep.

                                                    Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

                                                    6. It can help your skin.

                                                    For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

                                                    7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

                                                    Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.

                                                    8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

                                                    Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

                                                    9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

                                                    For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

                                                    10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

                                                      Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.

                                                      Advertising

                                                      Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

                                                      Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

                                                      Sleep well with your naked body!

                                                      With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

                                                      Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!

                                                      If you’re looking for more tips to sleep well and get up feeling energetic, I recommend you to check out this guide:
