How to Get Restful Sleep

Getting a good night's sleep is more important than we might realize. After all, scientists have calculated that we spend more than a third of our lives sleeping. With all that time spent in bed, why not make the most of it and get the best restful sleep possible? By using Feng Shui, you can do just that. Here are some great ways to make sure your next night in bed is one that's restorative and peaceful.

Your Bedroom Needs Help

It makes sense that when you're having troubles sleeping; you look to your bedroom first. Your bedroom's arrangement is often the cause of many sleeping disturbances. For example, if your furniture is too crowded or your bed is too big for the room, it can cause the energy of the room to be stuffy and tight - not an ideal combination for sleep. If you can free up some space in your bedroom, that's going to help get things started.

You will also want to make sure you remove anything that emits EM (electromagnetic) waves - electronic alarm clocks, TVs, computers, etc. All of these will disrupt your natural energy patterns and cause you to not feel as well rested. Try replacing your alarm clock with a wind up version, but keep everything else away. If you can't live without electronics in your bedroom, at least cover them up with a scarf to help limit your EM exposure.

Make sure your feet aren't right at the door when you sleep as this is known as the corpse position in which your energy can be carried away at night. Also, if your bed is under a window, try to move it away from this position. Windows pull in energy at night and this can wash over you, causing you to have troubles sleeping well. If at all possible, make sure your bed is centered in your bedroom so that it's the same distance from every wall. This is a balanced position that is soothing to the energy of the environment.

Limiting your exposure to water in the bedroom will also help you sleep better. Remove any pictures of water or fountains from your bedroom as well as keep your bed away from any wall that might be shared with a bathroom. Water energy is just too intense for sleeping. If you can't get away from that shared wall, put up some sort of barrier between the bed and the wall.

Sleeping Soundly from Now On

Yes, there is more you can do to help keep yourself sleeping soundly through the night. First, make sure you don't have any mirrors in the bedroom, especially facing you directly as you lie in bed. The reflections in the mirror can disrupt and startle your energy, even if you don't wake up to the other 'person' in the mirror. If you have exposed beams on your ceiling, be sure to cover them up or at least move the bed out of the direct line of them. These can point negative energy at you as you sleep.

If it's not too cold out, try to open up the windows of your bedroom from time to time to let in fresh and positive energy. And as with all Feng Shui advice, decluttering your bedroom will help your calming energy be enhanced as well. It will also help if you keep your closet doors closed - the energy from the chaos inside can be disruptive. The colors of your bedroom should also be subtle and neutral, if possible. Bright colors are just too energetic for sleeping.

As a final note, if you have an underbed storage box, make sure to remove it if you can. The clutter in here can seep negative energy into your sleep time - causing you to wake up tired and confused.
