Your bedroom’s furnishings and layout can greatly affect your sleep and energy, says Jayme Barrett, author of Feng Shui Your Life. Here are her suggestions for a more peaceful space.
A truly restorative bedroom makes all of your senses feel good. Try adding an incredibly plush rug or a chenille throw. A calming scent can help, too.
"Items in twos create harmony in a room," Barrett says. That serenity can help you sleep better. Try matching tables, pictures, or lamps.
Move your bed against a solid wall and facing the door so no one can surprise you. Also, choose bed linens you love; a circular design can be soothing.
“A messy area symbolizes unfinished business and keeps your mind in an anxious state,” Barrett says. Keep books neatly stacked and odds and ends out of sight in covered boxes or baskets.
