It seems like common knowledge that our bodies need sleep to survive. Most all of us have experienced the side effects of staying up too late or trying to pull an all nighter. However, there are surprising consequences worse than drowsiness if missing sleep becomes a routine for you.
1) Weight gain
Sleep deficiency can cause you to crave carbs and fat laden foods. If you’re not getting enough energy from sleep, your body will search for it in other places. Not only can lack of sleep affect your eating habits, you also burn less calories due to lack of movement from feeling sluggish.
Your home should be a place that reflects your style. If your home isn’t an appealing or comfortable place for you to relax, it might be time to consider a makeover. The following list is a few reasons why you might need to revamp your space.
1) You’ve had the same furniture for years
If you’ve had the same furniture since college featuring a well-worn futon and a desk as a makeshift dinner table, it’s probably time for a furniture overhaul. Or maybe you picked out furniture that you loved decades ago but the everyday wear and tear is beginning to show. Maybe you inherited furniture pieces from your great grandparents and the mixing of contemporary and antique styles clash.
The living room is the room in the house that no one wants to leave. How you choose to decorate this space can determine the atmosphere of the room – most everyone wants their living room to be an inviting environment for friends and family to relax. Although no one wants to intentionally ruin their living room, the following list is a sure way to do it.
1) Buying uncomfortable furniture
That sofa you saw in the store may look great, but is it actually comfortable? A good looking sofa is practically useless if you can’t sit comfortably in it. The easiest way to ruin your living room is to fill it with useless stuff. It’s important to create a comfortable environment that you can see yourself spending hours binge-watching your favorite TV show or playing a board game with family.
Furniture is an important part of our everyday lives. When taken care of, the life span of furniture can be extended much longer. Although accidents are inevitable, there are ways to keep your furniture looking as good as the day you brought it home from the store. Taking care of the furniture you currently own can save you money instead of having to always buy something new.
1) Keep furniture out of the sun
Direct sunlight can fade and cause different materials to rip and crack over time. It’s best to place your furniture a few feet away from open windows where direct sunlight won’t directly hit it. Another option is to get protective covering to drape over your furniture, if necessary. Being in the sun for an extended amount of time can distort the original color in your furniture.
