Ddark bedrooms: according to my top-post Dark Decor we are all in the mood for a bit of darkness. Dark bedrooms may seem gloomy, but I think they’re very fitting for this season of dark days ahead of us. And don’t be afraid of the dark, total darkness is best for a good night’s sleep.

Darkness will boost your melatonin production (a great anti-oxidant decreasing glucose and blood-pressure). Dark bedrooms will also reduce your Cortisol level, a stress chemical which will make you gain weight (aaarghh) and causes sleeplessness. So ban the TV from your bedroom, and read a book before going to sleep. And don’t forget to put your phone on airplane-mode. Sleep well 🙂

Ddonkere slaapkamers: volgens mijn meest-gelezen post Dark Decor, zijn we allemaal in de stemming voor een beetje duisternis. Donkere slaapkamers lijken misschien somber, maar ik vind dat ze erg goed passen bij het komende seizoen van donkere dagen. En wees niet bang voor het donker: donkere kamers zijn het beste voor een goede nachtrust.

De totale duisternis zal je melatonine productie een boost geven (een goede anti-oxydant voor het verlagen van glucose en bloeddruk). Donkere slaapkamers reduceren ook het Cortisol-gehalte in je bloed. Cortisol is een soort stress-stofje dat slapeloosheid en toename in gewicht veroorzaakt (aarrgghh). Dus verban de TV uit je slaapkamer en lees een boek voor het slapen gaan. En vergeet niet je mobiel in vliegtuig-modus te zetten. Slaap lekker 🙂
