How to? for a good night sleep

what can be more energizing & rejuvenating than a good night sleep?

You open your eyes & realize you slept the entire night tucked in your bed wrapped in the warm soft comforter.

One sure way to set our bedroom for a solid sleep is to pay attention to how we have placed the furniture in the bedroom.

The art of feng shui creating positive flow.

Any room with unbalanced energy not only can affect our health, but our relationships, and finances too.

Here are some feng shui rules to follow for the bedroom;

Solid wood headboard

1- your head should be near a solid wall. Using a wood headboard or solid upholstered headboard.

 

2- Avoid these colors: reds, purples, blues, and black.

3- No mirrors, which would be difficult to do,  but mirrors make the energies of the bedroom very active, or yang. keep it to one only, and don’t hang it on the wall near the foot of your bed.

4- Try not to have a TV or any electronic devices in the bedroom.
