How to Sleep Better Using Feng Shui

Falling asleep can be a difficult task for some people, and we all know the importance of a good night's sleep.

Ancient Chinese philosophy of harmonizing spaces, Feng Shui may be what you need to sleep better. Feng Shui means "wind" and "water" and the theory behind it is that all spaces have a life, an energy of their own that influences their inhabitants in all aspects of life.

For that reason, we bring you 7 Feng Shui tips to apply to your bedroom and sleep better.

1. What colors to choose?

A resting space must have a serene atmosphere. The most recommended colors are light and pastel tones, both for the walls and for the textiles . In the case of the latter, it is recommended to bet on natural fibers with simple motifs.

Do not overlook the importance of having good bedding for the quality of your sleep.

2. Avoid electronic devices

In the bedroom, the prevailing energy is that of rest, a passive energy that should invite us to rest in order to recharge our energies. Therefore, it is recommended to avoid electronic devices.

3. Bed orientation

In general, lie down with your head facing south and your feet pointing north. This is believed to be the best position because the body has its own north and south poles, which means that if it is not facing the right direction it can create tension that leads to headaches and other health problems. . Chinese tradition also recommends that the head of the bed be against a wall, so you will never feel that something can hide behind you while you sleep.

4. Mirrors and adornments

Having too many mirrors in the bedroom creates an energy imbalance. It is important that the mirror does not reflect the bed. Energy slows down when we sleep and a mirror that reflects us can cause insomnia. In the bedroom, mirrors should be oval or circular.

5. Avoid storing objects under and on the bed

Storing objects under and over the bed can obstruct your sleep pattern because energy movement does not flow evenly around the bed's energy fields.

6. The wardrobe also counts

What is in plain sight is important, but so is what is hidden. Keep your closet organized. Get rid of the old and make room for the new. Otherwise, you will have a stagnant energy charge.

Choosing furniture and decoration pieces with rounded corners also helps to promote harmony.

7. Open the curtains and windows daily

Opening the curtains and windows during the day (weather permitting) is a great habit. It's called letting the outside in. Helps refresh energy by letting natural light and fresh air filter into your room. At night, close the windows and curtains to keep the cool energy flowing inside while you sleep.

Natural light and fresh air are essential for good sleep.


Feng Shui is the art of living in harmony with the energies of nature, its maximum expression being the encounter with our internal harmony. Following its principles can help improve your well-being and that of your family.
