Make Room For Sleep With These Dreamy Colors
Sleep affects everything, from our mood to the immune system. It’s no surprise that sleep is so important. That’s why it’s key to maintain good sleep hygiene, like avoiding blue light from electronics. Speaking of blue light, the reason to avoid it is because it interferes with your circadian rhythm. (In this case, blue light is bad because of how bright it is, not because it’s just blue.) The circadian rhythm is an internal clock that decides by the light detected if it’s daytime or nighttime.
For example, when blue light is seen, your circadian rhythm believes it’s daytime. As a result, your body produces chemicals that make you feel energized. However, there’s another sneaky source of bright light: your bedroom color. Vibrant and intense walls are just as capable of ruining your night as your phone. Next time you’re shopping for bedroom paint, keep an eye out for these colors.
Stick to a creamy and buttery type of yellow, such as Lemon Chiffon. Lemon Chiffon is a soothing and calming color, going hand-in-hand with sleep. Other kinds of yellow include Khaki along with Cream.
Blue is abundant throughout nature and can be found in the ocean and sky. This happens to be why blue can be calming. Blues that are perfect for your bedroom include Periwinkle, Morning Blue as well as Delft.
Green is probably the first color that you think of when you think of nature. Green is everywhere, from grass and leaves to trees. Your best bet is aiming for Laurel, Tea, or Celadon.
You’ll see orange, especially during Halloween and autumn. Around this time, some leaves turn orange. Orange has beautiful shades, like Peach, Papaya Whip, plus Apricot. (Mmm…Peach…Papaya Whip…)
When it’s Valentines Day, everything’s pink and for a reason. The pretty color has to do with love, kindness, and sweet treats. Lovely types of pink would be Champagne, Chilean, and Mimi.
