8 things happy and healthy people don't have in their bedrooms

Getting proper sleep is one of the most important things we can do for our health. And yet we don't create the best environment for it.

The bedroom is a place worth paying special attention to when making arrangements and changes to make the energy flow better. The important thing is that you can surround yourself with objects that make you happier and more relaxed.

We have chosen 8 elements that you should keep out of the bedroom so you can sleep better and wake up feeling great. 

1. 1. Carpets

Carpets can give allergic reactions

Do you cough in the morning? Do you have a sore throat? You might be allergic to dust mites. They live in soft materials like carpets. If you can, get rid of it. Less carpet leads to less allergic reactions and less congested mornings.

2. 2. Very bright colors

Bright colors raise energy and mood

If you have problems with insomnia, bright colors are not the best choice. Bright colors are "triggers": they raise energy and mood. Conversely, blue or neutral tones induce sleep and are better choices for the bedroom. Light, quiet colors may seem boring to you, but that's where the magic of decoration comes in.

3. 3. Light-filtering curtains

Light-filtering curtains must go

In the bedroom, darkness is key, which means thicker curtains. White and chiffon curtains are wonderful when they flap in the wind and let in too much light. But not near your bed. The pollution caused by LED lights from the streets and nearby houses can alter your rhythm and negatively affect your health.

4. 4. Disturbing art

Reserve the artwork for the living room

Let your room be a zone free of irony and sadness. This is the space to calm down and rejoice as your day begins and ends. If you like artwork of this kind, choose another place, like the living room.

5. 5. Smartphones

Your phone is causing you anxiety and insomnia

There are many experiments and scientific studies that point in one direction: your phone is ruining your relationships and causing you anxiety and insomnia. Surely you can't forget about it, but you can declare your bedroom a mobile-free zone. Old-fashioned alarms are still being sold.

6. 6. A large number of small souvenirs

A decorative item smaller than a melon creates disorder

They say that a general lack of order makes people unhappy. One rule says that any decorative item that is smaller than a melon creates disorder. So to make a room feel simple and serene, change those small decorations for a larger, more dramatic piece.

7. 7. Television

Tv blue light affects melatonin production

Not only does having a TV set in the bedroom keep us up later at night -binge-watching your favorite series-, but it actually disrupts sleep cycles. We all know that screens emit a blue light that affects melatonin production and therefore our sleep. For those times when you really need to watch a movie in bed, it is better to invest in a portable projector that you only use on those occasions.

8. 8. A badly positioned bed

Try not to have any electronics on the side of your head

In Feng Shui it is recommended that you see your door from your bed. If you don't practice Feng Shui, it doesn't matter. Try not to have any electronics on the side of your head, avoid windows and sleep happily.
