Conquering the Chill: Warm Up Your Winter Mornings with Meridian Beds

Brrrrrr! The frosty bite in the South East England air can make emerging from your Meridian bed a formidable challenge. But fear not, sleepyheads! We've crafted a guide to transform your cold morning wake-ups into a warm and inviting experience. Here are Meridian Beds' top tips for conquering the chill and making the most of your winter mornings:

1. Heat It Up: Smart Central Heating is Your Friend

When temperatures plummet, make your bedroom a cosy cocoon. Program your central heating to kick in half an hour before your alarm. Modern tech allows you to control it from your smartphone, ensuring you step out of bed into a snug haven. For maximum comfort, aim for a temperature between 18°C and 21°C – this is not only good for your well-being but also your budget.

2. Tomorrow's Threads Today: Embrace Nightly Outfit Planning

Steal a few extra minutes under the covers by deciding on your outfit the night before. Lay your clothes out by the radiator for a toasty start to your day. Take it a step further by prepping your lunch and organising your bag, turning your morning into a streamlined success. Bonus points for choosing chunky knits and wool scarves – hello, winter chic!

3. Serenade to Sunrise: Ditch the Jarring Alarms

Swap jarring alarms for gentle wake-up tunes or the soothing sounds of nature. Invest in a sunrise alarm clock that mimics the natural dawn, or stream relaxing music from your phone. Make waking up in the cold a harmonious, stress-free experience.

4. Reach for the Ring: Outsmart the Snooze Button

Ensure prompt rising by placing your alarm out of arm's reach. Opt for a traditional clock if your phone is your alarm, strategically placing it across the room. This will force you to get out of bed to silence it, no more snoozing through your precious morning minutes.

5. Warm Fuel for Frosty Mornings: Breakfast Bliss

Kick-start your day with a warm cup of tea or coffee paired with a hearty breakfast like porridge or eggs. Research shows that a nutritious breakfast not only fuels you but also sets a positive tone for the day. A warm meal becomes a beacon of joy on chilly mornings, especially when enjoyed nestled in your comfy Meridian bed.

6. Anticipate the A.M.: Morning Rituals Matter

Infuse your mornings with joy by introducing small rituals. Whether it's savoring coffee in bed while reading a book, using a luxurious shower gel with a wintery scent, or practicing a few minutes of morning yoga, these rituals become your morning motivators. They'll give you something to look forward to and make even the chilliest mornings feel special.

7. Negotiate Not: Mindful Rising is Key

Resist the internal debate when your alarm goes off. Don't entertain the notion of a few extra minutes snoozing benefiting you. Make rising as soon as you wake up a non-negotiable routine. Soon, it'll become second nature, and you'll be surprised at how much more you can accomplish in those extra minutes.

8. Illuminate Your Day: Light Box Magic

Combat winter gloom with a light box like 'Lumie.' Mimicking sunrise, it regulates your body clock, boosting your mood and energy levels. Elevate your morning and ensure restful sleep with this illuminating addition to your routine. Pair it with your favourite cosy bedding from Meridian Beds for the ultimate winter morning sanctuary.
