Feng Shui

Your bedroom is your special private space where you can study, create, entertain your friends or just veg out. Your room reflects your personality and your own unique style! Did you know that there is an ancient Chinese practice called Feng Shui (pronounced fung shway) that says that the space that surrounds you creates energy that can affect the way in which you function? This is determined by many things, including the way objects are arranged, the colors and the lighting. The ultimate goal of Feng Shui is to create harmony in your living environment. Here are a few Fung Shui hints for you to try!

Live in Harmony with NatureBring a little bit of nature inside! Have plants, an aquarium or fish bowl and maybe one of those mini waterfalls. If you don't like fish, you can still have a fish bowl. Only fill it with soil and plants, bits of interesting wood and rocks... it's called a terrarium! Make your very own little paradise!

Facing your Bed Towards the Northeast will Boost your Brain PowerIt also helps you to get a good night's sleep. Make your bed nice and comfy with lots of cuddly pillows and blankets. Also, stuffed animals help to make a bed comfy!

Make your Space Lighter and BrighterBrighten up your windows with sheer colorful curtains that will let in more light. Hang suncatchers and strings of beads to let the rainbow shine in!

You will gain Energy by Creating Movement in your Room Make a dancing sticker mobile. Just pop stickers on colorful paper shapes. Dangle them on a hanger with string. Add some ribbon and bead strings, hang it in front of an open window or a fan and watch it dance!

White Walls will Wash You OutWith your parent's permission, paint your room. Don't be afraid to go bright! You don't have to paint all of the walls. Just one wall or even the door will boost your energy. If you can't paint, cover your walls with lots of artwork and posters!
