Your bedroom is the most intimate place in your home. And by intimate we mean “comfortable.” It’s your rest haven, your sleep sanctuary. And if it doesn’t feel that way right now, then it’s time to make a change.
This is where feng shui comes in handy. The Chinese pseudoscience uses energy to help you create harmony within your environment. And in your case, it’ll help you get better sleep quality in the long run.
So here are 5 bedroom feng shui tips for improving sleep comfort:
Get a mattress that fits you.
Here’s the gist of it: If you want harmony you need to make room for it. That being said, most adults might find a twin-size mattress doesn’t allow much room for anything. And when you’re sleeping with a partner, you’ll definitely need to make sure the mattress is big enough for each of your individual space needs.
Create your safe space.
You can’t get a good night’s rest if your mind isn’t at ease. Keep this in mind when positioning your bed. While you don’t want it directly in front of the door, you’ll want the door to be in your line of sight so you’re always aware of whatever enters your safe space.
Get a solid headboard.
Believe it or not, headboards serve more than just an aesthetic purpose. A headboard provides stability in your relationship. And if you’re single, it’s believed a headboard will attract a strong relationship into your life. It’s a simple equation: Solid headboard = solid relationship.
Avoid a cluttered mess under your bed.
About the clutter under your bed… You might think, “Out of sight, out of mind.” But it turns out the energy from that mess beneath you can be transferred to you—ultimately keeping you from a completely restful sleep.
Use and place mirrors correctly.
Avoid placing a mirror directly in front of your bed. You don’t want to wake up in the middle of the night to find yourself staring wide-eyed and terrified at, well, yourself. It can be jarring, even if it is just you. Also, consider an oval or other round shaped mirror, as it symbolizes a long-lasting relationship.
