7 Feng Shui Bedroom Tips for a Better Night's Sleep
The master bedroom is one of the three most important areas in your home for a number of reasons. A good night's sleep sets the stage for a happy and successful life, where you can pursue your passion and live according to your true purpose.
These Feng Shui bedroom tips will help you get to sleep faster and sleep better so you wake up feeling refreshed. 1 - Choose the right bedroom colors.
- Light greens, light blues, and flesh tones are restful and peaceful. These “yin” colors promote a good night's sleep. If passion is important to you, as well, consider red accents, but avoid too many “yang” colors like red, yellow or orange if the goal is a good night's sleep.2 - Block out light.
- New York City living creates lots of light pollution from passing cars, streetlights and buildings. If you live in an urban or suburban area, use black-out curtains or shades to keep your bedroom dark and re-align your body's circadian rhythms (natural cycles of sleep and wake time) with your schedule. As an added benefit, many black-out curtains and shades also provide better energy efficiency, keeping your room cooler in the summer and holding heat in during the winter. 3 - Use the right sheets.
- Pure, organic cotton bedding is good for the environment and good for you. It feels incredibly soft and natural, and is free of any dyes or artificial ingredients that can cause illness, allergies and discomfort.4. Set your bed in the command position of the room.
- You should position your bed
so that it has a view of the door but is not directly in line with the door. Any other positioning may leave you feeling tired come morning, and can contribute to illness or headaches. 5. - Celebrate nature.
- In my Feng Shui consultations
, I often recommend potted plants or fresh cut flowers. If you don't have a green thumb or don't have enough natural light in your bedroom to keep a plant alive, you might also introduce a rock garden, a seashell collection, or even a painting or photograph on the wall that depicts a beautiful, natural scene. You might also play nature sounds on your iPod before bed; the sounds of rain falling gently or the ocean's roar is soothing and can lull you to sleep. 6. Don't go overboard with technology in the bedroom.
- In general, it's a good idea to keep computers, television sets and other electronic equipment out of the bedroom. If you have no other place for it, or if you like watching T.V. in bed, turn them off and pull the plug when you go to sleep. This equipment emits electromagnetic fields which may prevent a good night's sleep and some studies show that sleeping in close proximity to these devices may even be harmful to your health. 7. Use the power of scents for a good night's sleep.
Lavender, sandalwood, chamomile, rose, cinammon, vanilla, bergamot, and honey are all proven to create a calming effect and bring on sleep. (Sandalwood, cinnamon and vanilla are also shown to be aphrodisiacs for another bedroom benefit!) Light incense, use a reed diffuser, inhale essential oils, or spray an all-natural linen spray on your sheets before bed for aromatherapy to sleep. Make sure you do not use artificial air fresheners that are loaded with chemicals.
