Bedchamber. Evening Quarters. Boudoir. Whatever you call your bedroom, its purpose is the same: provide a safe, quiet, place where you can rest, recharge, and rejuvenate.
The bedroom has to provide a place for us to get quality sleep so we are better prepared to go about our daily lives. Getting proper rest is essential to our health and well-being. When our sleep quality goes up, we need less of it, and we are more effective in our daily activities.
When we don’t get good, regular sleep, we don’t perform as well, our work suffers, our interactions with others are less positive, our immune systems decline and our mental faculties become compromised.
Bedrooms also provide a place for intimacy and vulnerability. Just as it is important to our success to be ready to meet daily life with head up and eyes open, it is equally essential that we unwind, let our hair down, and shed any armor.
The bedroom is a place we can be completely ourselves, unscripted, and unashamed — naked — both physically and emotionally.
