Up next in Beds & Mattresses (13 videos)
You, too, can become a mattress professional -- and get a good night's sleep -- with the advice in this Howcast video series.
You Will Need
- Paired objects
- Something beautiful object
- Furniture with rounded edges
- Decorations that represent your dreams and goals
De-clutter your bedroom. Pare down the knickknacks; clear off dressers; and move out the TV, computer, and any exercise equipment. Toss things associated with bad memories and repair or throw out anything broken. All can block positive energy, or 'chi.'
Paint your bedroom in a warm skin color -- anything ranging from pale peach to chocolate brown. These shades create a sense of harmony.
Position your bed
To promote a feeling of security, position your bed away from -- but in view of -- the door. Try to arrange the bed so that your head isn’t too near a window, through which chi can escape. If the room is big enough, don’t place one whole side of the bed up against a wall: That can inhibit the free flow of chi.
Get some curves
If you’re buying new furniture, choose pieces with curved or rounded edges. Sharp edges cut into chi like a knife. To soften square-edge furniture you already own, drape it in fabric.
Create balance by placing paired objects around the room.
Awaken to beauty
Position a beautiful object so that it’s the first thing you see when you wake up in the morning.
Air out the room
Open the windows often to keep air -- and chi -- circulating. And don’t be surprised if things start to go your way.
