Your bedroom is your escape from the hustle bustle of city life, and in feng shui, it’s believed to be the room of love, as well. It’s the room we spend significant time regardless of whether we’re sleeping for those hours. The sound, aroma, light, and fabrics in the room together affect our life, health, and well-being, even as we’re sleeping.
Here are a few simple feng-shui ways to detox your bedroom to refresh your mind, body, and soul.
1. Get Rid of Clutter
According to feng shui, clutter speaks of stagnant energy, negativity, and stress. Hence, you don’t need it in your house, especially in your bedroom. And by clutter, we also mean the clutter in your closet. In case your closet is in a mess, then it might be a good idea to purge it.
2. Detox Your Detergent
These days most of the commercial cleaners and fabric softeners contain harsh chemicals that lead to allergy and other diseases. Instead, use a soft or organic detergent to wash your bed linens. This will be a great positive move for a healthy life.
3. Add Some White Noise
As per feng shui, any sort of noise while sleeping can interrupt our sleep ultimately affecting our health. So, if possible invest in a white noise machine. These days, a lot of white noise playlists are available online that you can choose to play while sleeping.
4. Make It A No-Tech Zone
Make your bedroom a technology-free zone. This also means you cannot have TV in your bedroom. Electronic devices release EMFs which hamper our sleep, ultimately leading to increased stress levels and anxiety. So, ensure that you don’t bring any device into your bedroom. In case you use your mobile as an alarm clock, put it on silent mode and place it far away from the bed.
5. Get Some Plants
Infusing indoor plants in the bedroom is a great way to ensure you get clean air while sleeping. As per feng shui plants represent active energy. So, if you want to infuse plants in the bedroom keep them limited to two. Opt for detoxing greens like bamboo plant, spider plant or peace lily. However, ensure that the plants are healthy and thriving so that they have a positive effect on the room.
6. Use Non-Toxic Candles
A word of caution. Scented candles may look and smell amazing, however, they can release some harmful chemicals in case you’re not cautious. Rather, look for unscented, organic candles or ones made with essential oils.
