  1. Feng Shui Your Bedroom for Better Sleep

    Does your bedroom feel more like a dumping ground than a peaceful, calming retreat? If your bedroom is littered with charging cords, empty Starbucks cups, and miscellaneous clutter that’s slowly stacking to the ceiling, there’s probably not much serenity in sight.

    Don’t worry – you can easily change the state of your bedroom and invite happiness into your sleep space.

    As a Happsy customer, you’ve already taken the first steps to creating a bedroom that promotes health and well-being with chemical-free, eco-friendly bedding. Why not add an extra layer of meaning to your bedroom with the principles of feng shui for even greater rest and rejuvenation?

    It’s time to feng shui your way to a bedroom that’s a haven of wellness and tranquility.


    What’s feng shui?

    Feng shui is the ancient art of arranging your living spaces based on Chinese principles that aims to maximize the flow of “qi” (energy or life force). Boosting “qi” in any space is said to invite happiness, increase good fortune, and enhance well-being.

    According to this 5,000-year-old Chinese practice, every object in your bedroom possesses a certain energy that intermingles with your personal flow of energy. By rearranging, adding, or removing the objects in your room, you can actually balance the interacting energies to create happiness, health, prosperity, and success.

    Who wouldn’t want that!?

    Here’s how to integrate the principles of feng shui into your room for a better night’s sleep and sense of calm.


    Position your bed correctly

    In feng shui, the placement of your bed is the key factor in establishing good energy in your bedroom. The bed should be placed so you have a view of the entire room, including the door (though it shouldn’t be directly in line with the door). The head of the bed should be against a wall but not beneath a window, which could make “qi” flow outside and result in restless sleep.


    Relocate your mirrors

    According to feng shui principles, mirrors can actually be the cause of poor sleep. This is because mirrors are believed to bounce energy around, which could lead to anxiousness when you’re trying to sleep. Make sure not to hang a mirror on the wall opposite your bed, as this can encourage the intrusion of an unwanted third party into your love life.


    Be mindful of your artwork

    Any of the artwork you hang in your bedroom should be uplifting and relaxing. Make sure not to bring any sad images into your bedroom—especially paintings or photographs of just one person, as this symbolizes solitude. If you have any art hanging on the wall directly across from your bed, it should depict something that inspires you. After all, it will be the first thing you see in the morning and the last thing you see at night!


    Splurge on quality bedding

    Organic and supportive mattresses paired with organic bedding accessories promote well-being and rejuvenation. Since you spend so much time in bed, it should be the most comfortable place in your home. We invite you to snuggle up with our organic lineup of Happsy pillows and sheets for the ultimate feng shui experience.


    A little feng shui goes a long way. By integrating these ancient Chinese principles into your bedroom, you can create a nurturing space that promotes health, wellness, and good fortune—with the bedding to match!

  2. Is It Time For A New Mattress?

    There are so many things that are not on our radar when it comes to healthy sleep. Proof is in the pudding though…a mattress should be judged by how well you feel when you wake up.


  3. 9 Tips to Declutter Your Bedroom

    It all starts with that one pile of clothing you haven’t found time to put away. Slowly, the pile becomes two piles, gaining dirty laundry, towels, and unmatched socks along the way. Before you know it, your bedroom has become one big mess, causing you stress instead of relaxation.

    If you’ve ever felt the need to declutter your messy bedroom, it’s because clutter can actually have a profound effect on your mood. Researchers at UCLA found that untidy and disorganized spaces can make us feel helpless, overwhelmed, and anxious. Yet, we don’t often think of our clutter as a main source of daily stress.

    Fortunately, clutter in your bedroom is actually one of the easiest stressors in life to fix! While living entirely clutter-free might seem like an impossible feat, here are 9 quick and painless ways to declutter your bedroom in 10 minutes or less:


    1. Make your bed.

    Chances are, your bed is probably swimming in a mess of clothes and things that need a proper home. Clearing off your bed and properly making it is the easiest way to immediately improve the tidiness of your bedroom.


    2. Get rid of those dishes and water bottles.

    If you have any used bowls, silverware, plates, glasses, or water bottles on your nightstand, take them back to the kitchen. While it can be fun to have a snack in bed while watching Netflix, the kitchen is where your dishes belong.


    3. Fill up your hamper with dirty clothes.

    In case you forgot the purpose of your hamper, it’s to store all of those worn clothes that are littered around the floor. Your room will feel infinitely cleaner (and bigger!) once your dirty clothes are tossed in the hamper.


    4. Put away your clean clothes in the proper place.

    Now that your dirty clothes are taken care of, you’ll want to turn your attention to your clothes that are, in fact, clean. It’ll feel great to refill your closet with clothes on actual hangers and to store folded pants and tees in your drawers.


    5. Go through those paper piles.

    We all have those piles of things we think we need to keep—but do you really need them? Sort through your stacks of concert tickets, old receipts, flyers, coupons, and bills. Recycle the ones you don’t need, and tack the ones you want to keep on a bulletin board.


    6. Empty your trash.

    After you’ve given your room a clean-sweep, empty your trash can so that you can continue your new habit of tossing what you don’t need.


    7. Sweep the surfaces.

    If your dressers, bureaus, and/or nightstands are overflowing with clutter, do a quick sweep of these areas until they look and feel organized. There shouldn’t be any random objects cluttering your surfaces, like earrings without a match or empty bottles of perfume. A good rule of thumb is to get rid of anything you haven’t used in the last week (or at least put it away!)


    8. Hang up your purses and bags.

    If you have a spare hook, hang up your purse(s), backpack, and gym bag. Freeing up your floor from the mess of bags will make your room look instantly more spacious.


    9. Find pairs for your shoes.

    Even if you don’t have room in your closet to store all of your shoes, you can make your room feel less cluttered by organizing them in pairs. After all, a row of paired shoes looks much cleaner than a mountain of mismatched ones!


    Even if you haven’t managed to work your way through this entire list, choosing just one or two can help you to instantly make your room tidier and better organized. Before long, you won’t be worrying about the clutter stacking up in your bedroom—you’ll be celebrating your clean bedroom and kicking up your feet to relax.
