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.

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.
