If the soft movements of the waves help you fall asleep, these might be the most ideal bedrooms for you.

Would You Sleep Somewhere High Up?

When it comes to sleep, the most ideal place would be somewhere comfortable and safe. You’re vulnerable when you’re off in dreamland so you might want to make sure that nothing bad can happen to you while you’re defenseless.

This hasn’t stopped adrenaline junkies and adventurous souls from giving sleep a twist. Nowadays, you’ll find a number of death-defying sleeping accommodations in various places so you can give it a try if you dare. We’ve rounded them up below so see for yourself whether you’re willing to give them a shot.

Located in the Sacred Valley in Peru, the Skylodge Adventure Suites feature a series of crystalline pods suspended on the side of a cliff. It offers guests magnificent views of the valley below and the Milky Way at night.

Getting to the venue is a challenge, though. You can either climb up the 1,300 feet rock face or hike a daring trail that is also comprised of a series of zipline network.

Small spaces can get really cozy, but it also wouldn’t hurt to take it up a notch by outfitting your tiny home with a Salem Bed. Check out our selection today and you might just find the perfect pick for your studio unit.

Make the Bed Your Happy Place and Sleep Better

For most of us who needs to power through their days, the promise of a cozy bed can really make things better. There are those people who can be so stressed out the whole day but then instantly have a light and jolly mood the moment their backs hit the bed. Not everyone can transition this fast so you might be wondering, how do they do it?

The explanation is simple, albeit the execution may not exactly be: they made their beds their happy place.

Lots of us have happy places. Some find it in the great outdoors, other by the beach. There are also those who can instantly relax the moment they get together with a special someone or their family. It doesn’t even have to be a place at all in some cases. As long as you get to instantly relax the moment you’re there, then that’s it.

For some people, it just happened to be their beds. After a long day, your bed can be one of the most comforting places since it is, ideally, comfortable. The physical comfort, familiar smells, privacy, and the sense of security can do a number on your mood when you’re in bed. If you also have a cuddle buddy, it can up the comfort levels and even the sense of euphoria.

Turning your bed into your happy place shouldn’t be that hard. If you’re naturally inclined to feel relaxed upon lying in bed, then all you need to do is realize it. If not, you can try these tricks:

1. Don’t work in bed.

Doing any kind of work in bed often will have it associated with the stress and frustrations of working. If you have to work at home, do it outside of the bedroom.

2. Only do the things you enjoy in bed.

If you find something too tedious, don’t do it in bed. Don’t calculate the bills you have to pay in bed. Never open mail or bills that you’re sure will stress you out while you’re still laying down. Just don’t do anything that will upset you in bed so you won’t get stressed while in there and associate it with stressful things.

3. Remove clutter.

Even those who can work with clutter around them might find it hard to relax if their bedroom is a mess. Sure, you can sleep in it, especially if you’re really tired, but you won’t really feel relaxed with so much bothering you. Tidy up a bit and enjoy a relaxing bed.

4. Turn your bed into your haven.

Outfitting your bedroom with the coziest pillows, softest blankets, and the most comfortable mattress can really make it one of the best places to chill out at home. Add a few more items to turn it into what you’d call your favorite space and you’ll be able to relax more in your bed.

5. Hang out in your bed from time to time.

Got some free time on your days off? Hang out in your bed and just generally chill out in it. Read a good book, watch a fun series, or just do whatever else you like doing in bed. It can help you better associate it with some good times, allowing it to be a relaxing spot for you.

We’re not saying this because we’re in the sleep business, but, really, there are lots to gain by having your bed as your happy place. Not only will it promise you a nice and cozy place to relax in, but it can also benefit your sleep. If it’s a Salem Bed product, you’re even better guaranteed that it will be comfortable.

The Bedrooms we Daydream About Spending the Night In

While we love our bedrooms dearly, it wouldn’t hurt to try out other cozy-looking beds from time to time. Besides, as experts say, sleeping in a different bed can help reinvigorate your sleep hygiene which means that it’s a good thing to sleep somewhere else on some occasions as well.

As it’s also summer, we are slightly struggling with wanderlust as we’re stuck in the city with its unbearable heat and traffic. It wouldn’t really hurt to daydream about marvelous bedrooms that we’d love to spend a few nights in, right?

If we can take a pick of where we’d sleep tonight, here are a few that we’ll love to be in.
