Feng Shui for Better Sleep

Feng shui emphasizes the arrangement of living spaces to make the most of favorable energy flow. Feng shui recommendations tend to result in visually-appealing rooms. Here are some ideas for ways you can organize the furniture in a bedroom to help promote deep, restful sleep. If you suffer from insomnia, try optimizing your space to make it free from distractions, which would include following these ideas for improving your space:

  • Avoid placing your bed in the corner of the room. Positive energy is believed to circulate better in the open spaces of the room, and is more stagnant in the corners.

  • Avoid having the foot of the bed facing a doorway. When in bed, you shouldn't be able to directly see people passing or entering the room. If this isn't possible, it may be helpful to hang a mirror to reflect the doorway.

  • Avoid placing your bed near a window, which can have the effect of draining energy.

  • Avoid arranging the bed so that it faces sharp corners from walls or other pieces of furniture.
