There is an old saying that goes, “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.”
Indeed, getting enough sleep plays a very critical role in achieving wellness because it affects us physically, emotionally and mentally. For sure you have experience in the past that with lack of sleep you feel lazy due to lack of energy, feel grumpy and can’t think properly.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, a US-based non-profit organization that promotes health and well-being through sleep education and advocacy, healthy adults need between 7 and 9 hours of sleep per night while babies, young children, and teens need even more sleep for enhanced growth and development in their bodies. For individuals 65 years old and above, 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night is advised to live longer.

Here are top three tips on how you can maximize the space of a small bedroom. Just remember the word BED.
Be simple with the layout. Place the bed in the center of the main wall. Avoid floating it in the middle of the room or try to arrange it in the corner. This gives you an assurance that you will still have enough space to walk on and some room to do some stretching.
Make sure that placement of other furniture does not cover the source of light, whether the window or LED bulbs, otherwise you will need to rearrange again the decors inside your room.
Enjoy less clutter, less stress. Cut out the unnecessary objects in the room. You can start with shoes and bags you last used years ago, big and bulky racks and boxes of random stuffs. You’ll be surprised how a neat room looks fabulous less the hassle clutters. For items that you want to keep due to their sentimental reasons or probability that you will be needing them when the need arises, you can use storage boxes that can be stacked up and only eat up less space.
