Sleep is an underrated component of human health. Lots of people understand the importance of diet and exercise, but neglect their sleep. A huge part of getting good sleep is the space one rests in. How can you ensure your bedding is creating the best sleep environment? Check your bedsheets.
What condition are your sheets in now? Are they no longer their original color? Are seams splitting and fraying at the edges? If your sheets are old, they may not be doing their job. New sheets could be the way to go.
Choosing new sheets doesn’t have to be hard, but you should do due diligence. What fabric are the new sheets made of? Cotton is a favorite for its affordability, durability, and comfort level, but other options are on the market. Within the cotton umbrella is a whole spectrum of quality. Thread count is just one measure of quality; anything above 250 should be durable enough.
Beyond fabric and quality, color is important both practically and psychologically. Whites are the easiest to clean. Neutral tones are soothing to the eyes, promoting restful sleep. Bright colors stimulate the brain, which could help in the morning. Best choice varies by individual.
