Want to have the most fun on your vacations? You can use Feng Shui tips to have a more relaxing, enjoyable vacation this year, and it starts with where you stay.
Just as your home may either be in alignment with your true self or may be out of alignment, so it feels as if your environment is blocking you from achieving your goals, your hotel room is a home-away-from-home on vacation and can create the same effect.
While there are limited modifications you can make to a hotel room, you can use your knowledge of Feng Shui to select a hotel room that could contribute to your peace and enjoyment on the road. Good news. Most hotel rooms have inherently good Feng Shui in that they are designed to be relaxing, open and airy. Have you ever seen a cluttered hotel room? (Before you get in and dump your bags, of course!)
But here are three things to consider when you select a Feng Shui hotel room:
1. Look for a Feng Shui bed in the command position of the room.
If you can get a room with a bed in the command position, this is ideal. Also, look for a solid headboard so that, even on vacation, you'll feel a sense of being on stable ground and able to sleep well so you can enjoy yourself all day.
2. Look for a Feng Shui hotel building.
A Feng Shui hotel building will be located on a friendly street with lots of living chi. Assess the quality of the shrubbery, flowers, trees, grass and other life around the hotel room. What's the neighborhood like? The second you step out of the hotel lobby and on to the street, will you be able to begin the vacation of your dreams, because the area possesses the traits you're looking for? For instance, if you want a serene, peaceful vacation, you may look for a beachside resort with a view of the ocean. If you hope for excitement and adventure, your Feng Shui hotel choice should be on a street bustling with life. Whatever you're looking for, make sure the hotel and surrounding area has a general feel of positive energy.
3. Keep your hotel room clean for a stress-free vacation.
Clutter can create stress in our minds and in our lives. Make use of the closet and dresser drawers to store your clothes if that will make it easier than rooting through your suitcase and tossing outfits on the floor every time you want to get dressed. Discard of trash (such as food packaging) immediately; don't wait for housekeeping. It's true you're on vacation, but if you keep your hotel room neat, you'll feel better when you're in it and be free to pursue the perfect vacation you envisioned.
