Sleep and Feng Shui

You deserve a good night’s rest! How simple Feng Shui can help you sleep.

Restorative sleep is essential to our ability to function at our capacity. Sleep distruption is linked to accelerated aging, hormone imbalance and even serious health conditions like diabetes and hypertension. The ancient Chinese practice of Feng Shui can make a difference!

Let’s talk about devices. Electronics are a metal element and YANG energy. Plugging in right next to your pillow is a bit like bringing a busy office to your bed. You want relaxing energy coming your way, not stimulation that will ramp you up.

Additionally timing the use of blue-light emitting devices like phones and tablets is very important. Melatonin, a natural occurring hormone in the brain, is released to promote sleep at night. Blue-light from devices reduces your production of this critical sleep signal. I recommend plugging in your phone or device out of reach before you lay down so that you are not tempted to use it. Wherever you decide to charge your phone, using a phone stand for charging can prompt you visually to put your phone away.
