How comfortable it feels watching TV from your own bed, completely relaxed and knowing you can have a night of bliss before drifting off to sleep with a completely relaxed and soothed mind after a hard day’s work. It’s something we should all strive for, and something that should be – frankly speaking – enjoyed a little more in this day and age.
However, there are those who advise against it – and they have their arguments as well. If you’re not doing it the right way, it can have an adverse effect. There’s nothing wrong with some top-grade entertainment, but be prepared. Here’s how you can best watch television from your bed – your questions answered.
When watching TV in the living area, it’s always best to have your TV at eye level when seated – this avoids eye strain and neck pain later on. Whilst the height and angle of your TV in the bedroom may be different, it’s still important to think of your physical comfort and avoid awkward positions when viewing. Here’s when choosing the appropriate TV display stand matters and makes a big difference.
Your physical comfort
Provide plenty of pillows. The pillows will ensure that you have plenty of soft cushions that allow you to be comfortable, but they will also help you arrange your body and your head to avoid straining and difficult positions. It’s especially important if you watch TV in bed regularly, as problems tend to build up in the long run.
Hide your TV
In order to make sure it doesn’t become a steady habit (it really isn’t recommended on a regular basis), it may be a good idea to hide your TV so that you are not always tempted to indulge. Consider housing your TV in a beautiful case. It may also add a little character to your room.
Watch until it’s time to stop
Sounds silly, but it’s necessary to have some discipline. When it’s time to sleep, then sleep. In fact, stop watching TV at least half an hour before bedtime, so you have time to unwind. This will ensure a much better and healthier sleep.
Keep it silent
Make sure you can hear it well, but keep the volume to a minimum. If you have a tendency to fall asleep whilst watching, then use the sleep mode.
It’s a tricky thing, watching TV from the bed. The truth is that it’s not a healthy thing to do, and you really shouldn’t overdo it. However, if you’re going to do it, then make sure you do it the right way: limit your time, don’t make a habit out of it, and make the most of it whenever you do get the chance. Above all, make sure you are mentally and physically comfortable, and that it serves as a well-deserved night of relaxation.
