I have very important news to share with you. I recently read an article on Feng Shui and I was delighted to know that it is an absolute necessity to sleep with a high quality premium foam padded bedhead or headboard when you sleep! The reason being is that when you sleep (especially if your bed is under a window or concrete wall) your body recharges all its good energy and it is important that your body gets a good sleep so you wake up full of energy and healthy. Studies have shown that when you sleep the body cools and it is important to keep warm when you sleep. If you sleep under a window cold air sneaks through the glass windows and your body and head loose more heat and also loose good energy. This is the same for a cold concrete wall. Therefore it is very important to have a thick and sturdy, well padded bedhead in between you and the window or wall.
I have listed below some other basic feng shui guidelines I came across for your bed in your bedroom:
- Your bed needs to be accessible from both sides- not up against the wall on one side- if you have the space
- avoid having the bed in a direct line with the door.
- Balance is important if you have the space in your bedroom add two bedsides rather than one, on either side. Keep in mind balance when adding cushions to your bed also.
- A good mattress, a solid headboard and high quality sheets from natural fibre's are also very important in creating harmonious feng shui energy in your bedroom.
I hope this information helps - try it out and see if it makes a difference to your sleep, health and energy. If you are concerned that you have a window and don't know where to put your bedhead, we can help make some suggestions.
