Yes, I have definite views about bedrooms. Not to say I get my way about it. I believe that a bedroom shouldn't have a TV set in it. A radio or CD player might be okay for those special times, but I don't care for any music when it's time to go to sleep.
Bedrooms should be cool or on the cold side. Light should not actually shine into the bedroom, but you should have at least one view outside. Lamps are okay, but overhead lighting is a no-no, unless you are in there to clean. Candles are great when its time for quiet talks or a little sex.
To me a bedroom is a place to be quiet and still with your spouse. A place to let the day fall off and the two of you to reconnect. And when it's time to go nighty-nite, I want it dark with a fan running or a window unit humming to drown out outside interference.
I have found going to sleep on my stomach with my knees into the mattress does wonders to “quiet” my sometimes restless legs. I love a nice cool pillowcase under my face and will flip my pillow over for that cool side any time I wake up any at all.
I think I have to have a sheet over my body...no matter what. And I like some kind of blanket or quilt up to my buttocks at least. The weight makes me feel tucked in and secure.
While I adore a chance to cuddle and snuggle before slipping off to dream land, I find it almost impossible to go to sleep tangled up with someone else. I need my space, my spot.
Maybe you disagree with me. You may have other ideas or favorite habits, rituals, settings for your bedroom or bedtime. Please share them!
