From sleeping in on Sundays to crawling into bed at 8pm on a Wednesday, we’ve rounded up the best tips for making sure your sleep space a Feung Shui Sanctuary.
Make your bedroom a Feung Shui Sanctuary. According to a study done by Travelodge, painting your bedroom a shade of blue can slow blood pressure and reduce heart rate, which leads to a deeper, more restful sleep. Alternately, a purple bedroom can lead to excess brain stimulation, resulting in loss of sleep.
Follow the melon rule: avoid incorporating objects smaller than a cantaloupe melon-they can make your space feel jam-packed and cluttered.
According to classic Feung Shui rules, your bed should be accessible from both sides. You should also avoid placing your bed directly across from your bedroom door. Additionally, things should come in twos; two bedside tables, two lamps, etc.
Adding mirrors into your room will also create the illusion of airiness and lightness, like you’re floating on a cloud during your 3pm catnap.
If you’re looking for a more utilitarian approach, consider using shelves as your headboard. They serve as both a focal point to show off all of your most prized possessions while also being a great storage space.
If your bedroom has windows, be sure to open them frequently to let in fresh air which will benefit your breathing capacity when you’re ready to crawl into bed at the end of the day.
Additionally, there are many houseplants that can detoxify the air. The snake plant, for one, is among the best for improving air quality, so consider investing in one for your abode.
Lastly, say no to electronic devices in your sleep space. I know this can be a difficult task, but it is extremely beneficial in the long run. Consider this a major step in the right direction as far as deep, restful sleep is concerned.
If you follow the above steps to creating a Feung Shui sleep space, you are on your way to experiencing a sounder, more restful sleep in no time!
