Enjoy coming back to school or your daily life with small changes
Summer is for hanging out and pretending you don't have responsibilities. Fall is for remembering that yeah, you do have responsibilities, like school and work and time to go back to routines.
The routines also include sleeping, morning and evening routines so why not improve those routines with a really comfortable bedding to add comfort to your overall lifestyle. Better sleep means better life… and in addition we added a few extra tips to upgrade your home, whether its new or old.
There is nothing better than taking a nap after a long day in the classroom or have breakfast in bed after a long week of studying. You will have nights our when you will thank yourself for having your bed made with the softest sheets and nights when you will share your bed with others, that may come around a second time just because your bed was so comfy.
Therefore, My Luxury Linen gives you an extra 20% off on all bedding (starting 14th August!) so you can enjoy your time back at school, or just your normal life and routines.
Houseplants really do freshen the air and immediately inform your nose that you are home. Either go for plants that improve air quality such as the spider plant or peace lily (added bonus: they are really low maintenance!) or scented ones, such as jasmine, geranium and tea rose begonia. All of these plants require a windowsill with lots of light, so if you drew the short straw on accommodation, consider a good-quality reed diffuser.
LED desk lamps are cheap to pick up these days and can quickly switch between a bright light for work and a softer glow for relaxation. If you like the campsite vibe (but you are banned from using open flames), you can buy battery-operated tea lights online that work just as well without the safety risks.
Also, make use of your noticeboard. It's not just for calendar deadlines or social events: you can also dedicate a portion to visual ideas. Humans work intensely on sight, so if you are doing a long piece of research or a dissertation project, start pinning related images to the board. It's a great way to jog your unconscious and make links between different ideas.
A decent pair of headphones is a must, both for blocking out the world and for focusing on your movie or game (because you will be streaming movies from Netflix, right?). Background sounds can tip the balance between feeling relaxed and feeling miserably alone. Consider asking for a small Bluetooth speaker as a gift which will sync to your phone or computer for radio, music or even seashore sounds to soothe your ears.
Don’t forget the water…
Drinking water is important, but usually too boring to remember (unless you have a massive hangover). However, there is research to show you will improve both your memory and attention span whilst studying if you stay hydrated. Make it easy on yourself with a bedside water bottle and your choice of juice or cordial beside it.
University is one of the most intense times of your life, with the freedom to experience and explore everything. Give yourself the best shot at it, with a good bedroom retreat.
