Feng shui can be the key to a good night’s sleep, according to wellness experts who say it’s very important to design your bedroom in a specific way.
Even beginners in the art of fen shui can achieve a more balanced bedroom space by taking note of important rules, such as keeping the space clutter-free and adding greenery.
The art of feng shui is to maximize the flow of ‘qi’ (energy or life force) for maximum safety and productivity, according to Tara Kaff, Accredited Wellness & Nutrition Expert for X50 Lifestyle.
Setting an alarm clock instead of a phone, having some flowers, and using a diffuser are all simple steps people can take to sleep better, according to feng shui
Tara has shared her top tips for improving feng shui in your home, each of the guidelines is easy to follow and achievable for most people:
Get rid of the mess
A messy nightstand equals a distracted mind. Remove all ‘stressors’, such as food, electronics, clothing and random objects.
The last thing you see before turning off the lights should be a peaceful and comforting sight.
Light a candle to relax
A lit candle can help you drift more smoothly into dreamland. Try placing a lightly scented candle on each nightstand, preferably with a lavender scent to promote a good night’s sleep.
Add a flower
While a vase full of flowers should be kept far from your bed, try keeping at least one plant friend nearby, such as an orchid. Orchids are ideal for the bedroom because they produce oxygen at night and support your health.
Try a diffuser
Investing in a small diffuser can do double duty by adding moisture to dry air and helping you relax with the power of essential oils.
Use a silk eye mask
You will sleep well with a light-blocking mask, especially one made of silk. Keep it in your nightstand for ultimate relaxation when you go to bed at night.
Sleeping with an eye mask is another one of the expert tips for getting the most out of bedtime
They also recommend using sleep tea that contains ingredients that are proven to help people fall asleep quickly
Sleeping tea, such as the X50 Herbal tea Sleepy blend, contain a blend of botanicals proven to promote a good night’s sleep. Certain herbs allow us to relax so that we can fall asleep faster; while others promote better sleep quality once we’ve dozed off.
Herbs such as chamomile and lavender help us to relax and let go of the stresses of the day, gently drifting off to a peaceful night’s sleep, while valerian root, often referred to as ‘nature’s valium’, supports deep and restorative sleep. .
Swap your phone for an alarm
To limit your screen time before bed, put your phone in a drawer and opt for an alarm clock instead. If you’re having trouble falling asleep or waking up, consider upping the ante and getting one that does timed meditation, light cues, or a sound machine.
These simple tips can help people get a better night’s sleep and even help couples maintain and build stronger bonds, the expert said.
