SustainableQATAR’s Weekly Challenge 43: Healthy Bedrooms

Start a discussion

SustainableQATAR’s 52 weekly challenges – that is one challenge per week for a whole year themed by month – are Qatar-specific and Qatar-relevant opportunities for all residents to take actions in personal life, work and within our communities.

This month’s theme, Healthy Homes, is about creating and sustaining a healthy home that is free from toxins and supports an ecologically sensitive lifestyle. This week we focus on our bedrooms. We typically spend (or should spend) one third of our day in our bedrooms, sleeping for 8 to 9 hours to be fit and healthy ourselves. Our bedrooms are where we are supposed to relax, recharge, and rejuvenate. However, are we doing the best we can to ensure that we always have a peaceful slumber, and wake up refreshed and ready to seize the day? Do we know what it takes to ensure that our sacred sleeping space truly champions our health and well-being; are we aware of the hidden pitfalls that may lurk there?

This week’s challenge looks at how to create and maintain a healthy bedroom environment, and promotes the concept of sleep hygiene. Sleep hygiene means the practices and habits that are essential to ensure that we have a nighttime sleep that is adequate not only in the number of hours slept, but also in the quality of the sleep.
