Eat right, don’t skip Weekly Exercises and get enough Comfortable Sleep.
Living a healthy life is a great investment, not only for avoiding future medical costs but also for your physical and mental health. Which is why after understanding the importance, you would not hesitate in investing in your room. A fully furnished room can typically cost at least $3000, in return you can have a comfortable area where you can rest and sleep soundly. Sleep deprivation can have negative implications on your body and mind if it goes on for an extended period, which is why you cannot skimp on prioritizing spending on your room.
How Does Sleep Benefit My Mental and Physical Health?
A good night’s sleep helps recharge your brain. Your alertness, ability to recall memories and information all greatly depend on the amount of proper rest you give your body. Whenever your brain is fed with new information, your brain processes the new intel. The strength of your neural connections though will affect your ability to recall this new intel and absorb it. For your physical health, your body is able to recover during rest, your metabolism kicks in and especially if you exercise, you will feel the positive effects during recovery mode.
So How Much Should You Invest in Your Room?
Start Off First with your Bed – This is usually the first thing everyone buys, and for a good reason. You can find ways to economize on anything else, just not on a good quality bed. A mattress, frame and a box spring will typically cost anywhere between $500 to $900 depending on the quality, brand and model you choose. If you go for a hotel type of bed, expect the costs to go over $1000. The size will impact the cost as well, so be sure to measure your room and allot enough space for your bed.
A Good Sized Closet – This is the second most important part of your room. A quality closet saves space and helps you avoid dumping clothes on your bed or floor. A good quality closet can average $100 to $200, in the long run this helps keep your room tidy and in order.
A Work Desk – If you sometimes work in your room, plan out the space for your work area. You need to invest in a good sturdy desk and a comfortable chair especially if you sometimes work at home. The costs can average between $100 to $200 depending on the quality, however no need to overspend on it as long as the quality is good and practical.
Air-conditioner or Heater – The right temperature matters if you plan on getting a good night’s sleep. You can spend anywhere between $400 to $800 depending on the technology. Go for energy savers since they can help keep the costs down, though they may be more expensive they will still help you save more in the long run.
A Night Lamp – You need one beside your bed so you can easily place your phone and wallet beside you. You can purchase a small table enough to fit your lamp which can cost anywhere between $30 to $100. No need to go overboard on this one, choose practicality.
Curtains or Blinds – You don’t want unwanted light shining through your window especially if you are about to sleep. And don’t try to short change the costs since a thick quality curtain helps block out the light, give you privacy and help you sleep comfortably. You can expect to spend around $50 to $100 on a good quality curtain or blind.
If you want to increase your longevity, invest in a comfortable room. The benefits greatly outweigh the costs especially in the long run. Your sleep is important, especially if you have a full schedule ahead of your day, you want to kick back in a relaxing room that enables you to recharge and get ready for another day.
