Can Feng Shui Be The Key to Better Sleep?
It’s common knowledge that many external and internal factors can affect how well we sleep at night. From our diet and exercise routine, to our state of mind… but your sleep environment can also play a big role in the amount of zzz’s you bag at night. The objects you have in your room, the quality of your pillows, and even the position of your furniture can all be improved to help you get the best night’s sleep!
Feng Shui, the ancient Chinese art of balancing energy (or Chi) in a room, could be the answer to all your sleepless woes. Restoring quality Chi in your home, is said to support health, mindfulness, and contribute to a better sense of well-being. If your bedroom is untidy, too bright and noisy, or is positioned poorly, your Feng Shui (and sleep) will suffer.
Read below to find out the best way to achieve sleeping solace.
1. Make Sure Your Bed is Big Enough
Ensuring you have enough space in your bed, whether you sleep alone or not, is said to help the Chi (energy) flow properly around you. Making sure you have room to get comfortable will also help you muscles relax and promote deeper sleep.
2. Command The Room
It’s said that the position of your bed in the room plays a big part in how easily you can relax. The ‘Command Position’ means situating your bed so you can easily see the door from your laying position. This puts you in a ‘safe’ space, because you can spot if anything enters the room.
3. Invest in Quality Bedding
Sinking into good quality bedding at night will help promote feelings of comfort and relaxation, which will lead to better sleep. Organic cotton is highly recommended as it's toxin-free and breathable, helping you maintain a good temperature throughout the night.
4. Keep Colours Calming
If you’re thinking of redecorating your bedroom, opt for relaxing, earthly colors like blue, green, cream and gray. These are proven to calm you down, rather than colours like red, orange and yellow which energize and awaken you. If you are a fan of a color pop, try using pillows and prints, rather than painting an entire wall.
5. The Answer is Aromatherapy
Lavender, Bergamot and Cedarwood Oils are all proven to help our mind and body relax. By introducing essential oils in your bedroom, you can transform the energy from stressed and anxious, to calm and collected.
Our Dream Lotion contains all three of these essential oils, and a nightly application could be an easy first step into achieving the ideal Feng Shui. Click below to find out more!
