Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia. And while there are different types of anxiety and ways to manage it, upgrading your bedroom could help induce some much-need calm into your day.
Here are some proven ways to help with anxiety.
Essential oil diffuser
Studies have shown that lavender can help reduce anxiety. Try adding an oil diffuser to your bedroom and make the most of its calming effects.
Houseplants work wonders for your indoor environment. According to research, greenery not only helps to clear impurities out of the air but can also assist in reducing anxiety.
Getting more sleep is an important anti-anxiety strategy. Many people find they sleep better with background noise, such as white noise.
While technology should be banned from the bedroom, many people are experiencing benefits from watching Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) videos, claiming they help to reduce anxiety and improve sleep. Ikea has even jumped on board, creating their own oddly satisfying ad.
A quick YouTube search for ASMR will return plenty of results.
