How to Style Your Bedside Table


 

How to Style Your Bedside Table

 

Clear your mind and get a good night’s rest with a clean and organized bedside table.

 

We’ve gathered experts’ advice on what you need on your bedside table for a restful sleep.

 

Must-Have Essentials

 

For a well-balanced nightstand, outfit your bedside with a lamp that has a yellow-based light. A good book to read will help your mind slow down and calm your eyes from staring at screens all day. Experts recommend reading books that aren’t too thrilling or engrossing, which will also keep you up later than you’d like.

 

Keep hydrated with a glass of water next to your bed. Keeping water close will prevent you from heading to the kitchen, where late-night snack temptations exist.

 

A pen and paper are essential for any last-minute ideas for tasks and thoughts you have.

 

An alarm clock separate from your phone will wake you up on time without having your phone screen be the first thing you look at in the morning.

 

Stay Organized

 

Keep a small jewelry dish or tray on your nightstand for any rings, bracelets or earrings.

 

A storage basket underneath the nightstand, or a nightstand with drawers, is key for keeping too much clutter from piling onto the tabletop.

 

A small tray or basket for hand cream or a calming lavender spray is a necessity for keeping skin hydrated throughout the evening. Keep your lip balm nearby, too.

 

Scents and Sounds

 

Just as the smell of coffee helps you wake up in the morning, so too do certain scents help you fall asleep at night.

 

Lavender, vanilla and jasmine are experts’ recommendations to calm the body and mind. Burn the scents through your favorite candles or essential oil diffusers.

 

If ambient noise is a distracting factor for you, drown them away with a sound machine evoking dreamy beach waves or a rainstorm.

 

Final Touches

 

Add small plants, such as succulents, or a floral bud vase, to bring a little life and color to your bedside table.

Back-to-School Bedtime Routine Tips

 

A new school year is upon us, which means readjusting summer sleep schedules.

 

Experts recommend prepping for school-year routines two weeks in advance but, sometimes, the bittersweet end of summer vacation catches many of us unawares.

 

Here is some helpful advice to help little ones adjust quickly to new routines.

 

Make slow changes

 

Neither adults nor children adjust to changes that are made in one fell swoop.

 

When adjusting bedtimes, move them earlier only by 5 to 15 minutes at a time, every two or three days. This will help you and your children feel less groggy in the morning.

 

Children under 12 years old need between 10 to 11 hours of sleep, while older children need eight to nine hours.

 

Work together as a family

 

Children will feel better going to sleep early if they have an example to follow. That doesn’t mean your bedtime should be as early as 7:30 or 8 p.m., too.

 

Finish up any homework soon after dinner, and get ready for the next school day together. Having backpacks and lunches packed and any parental forms signed will help the next morning’s rush go much smoother.

 

Start having more calming family activities an hour before your children’s intended bedtimes. Avoid the TV and smartphones and together choose a book to read, or help them with a calming bath.

 

Turn off your devices

 

Blue light from electronics can stimulate the mind too much before bedtime.

 

Turn off the TV or smartphones and dim bedroom lights an hour before to start calming the mind down. Try having a charging station in the kitchen or another shared space where everyone can store their devices for the evening.

 

Are you using your phone as your alarm? Try going analog or looking into some of the alarm clocks we’ve recommended for Daylight Saving Time

 

Promote positivity

 

There may be some struggles having earlier bedtimes, but remain patient and positive for you and your child.

 

If children — especially very young ones — see bedtime as a positive activity rather than a punishment, they’ll be less likely to resist the new schedule.

 

Counter any last-minute requests by incorporating them into your children’s new routine. Experts say that if children’s routines keep getting interrupted, the harder it will be for them to adjust.
