How to Maintain a Peaceful Dorm Life

From classes to parties, social clubs, and more, college can get super intense. Fortunately, your dorm room can prove to be your perfect escape so long as you maintain a tranquil environment. Here’s how to ensure a peaceful dorm life.

Communication is Key

If you have roommates, then it’s vital to build a positive relationship with them to ensure that you keep the peace. While setting ground rules is vital, so too is compromise, whereby you accommodate one another on occasion when necessary.

Ensure Good Sleep

While dorm rooms are often small with little freedom for creativity, the one thing you do have control over is the state of your bed. Make sure that you sleep on a comfortable and supportive mattress and that your bedsheets are smooth and don’t scratch you.

Schedule Some Alone Time

While getting along with your roommates is important, it’s also healthy to get some time apart so you don’t get on each other’s nerves. Make sure to schedule alone time in the dorm room when your roommates are out and, alternatively, spend some time outside when they’re home.
