Feng Shui: 8 Tips for Better Sleep Tonight

Feng Shui Bedroom Tips Might Actually Help You Sleep Better

Is your menopause keeping you up at night? It sucks doesn’t it? Sleep is very important to me. If I don’t get enough sleep I cannot be as productive as I want to be. Things get postponed, schedule changes, I’m limited in my work and personal activities, and on and on.  I have to be strategic in how I manage my life because of sleep.

My evening routine is somewhat comical. There’s a checklist I follow. But one thing you need to do first is to incorporate Feng Shui in your bedroom. I’m sharing some images of my bedroom:)

What is a Feng Shui bedroom exactly? 

A Feng Shui (pronounced “fung shway”) bedroom incorporates peace and a balanced environment that promotes sleep and relaxation. Did you catch that? It promotes it, not cures it. When a bedroom has good Feng Shui, the nervous system can relax and we enter into a place of love and safety, which are very important for a good night’s sleep. That’s why I wanted to try this. 

Some people think Feng Shui is a Chinese interior design concept. It is not. The words literally translate to “wind water.”

According to P.K. Odle, master Feng Shui consultant and executive director of the renowned American Feng Shui Institute, “Just like gravity, Feng Shui influences exist in natural and man-made environments. Whether you believe it or not, they are already affecting your daily life”.

Feng Shui isn’t something you do; it is something that’s everywhere. It affects you in ways you may not even realize. “All buildings have a unique Feng Shui energy blueprint from the moment they are built, which you can think of as the building’s DNA sequence,” Odle says.

Pinterest Top 100 Trends

Feng Shui decor is so popular on Pinterest that searches has increased by 137% YOY.

Here are do’s and dont’s to Feng Shui your bedroom:

1. Bed placement

Do’s: place your bed against a wall with a solid headboard to support you. Or at least toward a wall with a closed window that doesn’t have any drafts. This position is to reduce the movement of Qi or energy above your head, so you will have a restful night’s sleep.

However, if you are not able to fit your bed against a wall keep your bedroom door closed or a few inches open when you’re sleeping.

Choose a solid wood frame or a solidly upholstered headboard. 

Dont’s: sleep with your head under a window. Avoid headboards with multiple panels, open bars, or beds with built-in shelving or storage.

2. Unplug technology

Do’s: Whenever possible remove anything electrical such as your TV, computer, mobile phones, etc. 

3. Completely clear out stuff under your bed

One of the main principles of Feng Shui is that Chi energy is able to circulate freely, so having a bunch of stuff and junk stored under your bed can prevent the energy from moving through the room the way it needs to.

Dont’s: make your the space under your bed a storage area.  If you sleep over clutter, your energy will get polluted, stale, and stuck.

4. Choose your art carefully

Choosing the wrong color and materials can absolutely disturb the nurturing energy one needs in order to sleep well. Avoid designs that are “sad” or “aggressive”.

Do’s: Choose art that make you feel good instead.

5. Get air in you room

Do’s: Let your bedroom breathe by opening your windows. Allow that beautiful sunshine and fresh breeze to purify your room. You can also try “smudging” which is requires you to burn sage in a space to clear out any negative energy.

6. De-clutter

Do’s: donate or throw away anything in your bedroom that you don’t need. Things in your bedroom should express love and relaxation.

7. Colors matter

Optimal Feng Shui bedroom colors

Dont’s: reds, purples, blues, and black. They can trigger major problems depending on the Feng Shui energies of the space. 

Do’s: neutral in color. 

Redecorating an entire bedroom based on colors would be a little expensive don’t you think? But one thing you and I can do is switch up the bedding with neutral colors which will help create a more calming space. 

8. Mirrors

Dont’s: a peaceful bedroom should not have one because mirrors reflect light; it makes the energies of the bedroom very active, or yang.  When that happens, it will delay your sleep because you are waiting for the bedroom’s energies to become more still, or yin.

Summary

Just like gravity, Feng Shui influences exist in natural and man-made environments. Whether you believe it or not, they are certainly affecting your daily life. Getting enough sleep is a must if you want to accomplish your goals, stay healthy, and of course it helps with menopause as well.
