Feng Shui your bedroom for a better rest
Use Feng Shui principles to set up your bed and you could wake up more rested.
Use Feng Shui principles to set up your bed and you could wake up more rested, according to Ellen Whitehurst, a feng shui consultant and author of the upcoming book Make This Your Lucky Day (Ballantine, 2007). The goal is to balance the energy in your bedroom so you can relax-to do this, start by placing the head of your bed against a wall, which will give you a feeling of stability (a headboard has the same effect). But don’t put your bed in a corner. “Leave space on both sides of your bed so energy can circle freely around you,” says Whitehurst. If possible, move your bed so you can see your door without being directly across from it-or in front of a window. This arrangement, called “the command position,” will subconsciously make you feel more secure by allowing you to see who is coming into your room without being startled.
Boulder, Colorado—an innovative company has taken one of life’s most unpleasant experiences (being startled awake by your alarm clock early Monday morning), and transformed it into something to actually look forward to. “The Zen Alarm Clock,” uses soothing acoustic chimes that awaken users gently and gradually, making waking up a real pleasure.
What makes this gentle awakening experience so exquisite is the sound of the natural acoustic chime, which has been tuned to produce the same tones as the tuning forks used by musical therapists. According to the product’s inventor, Steve McIntosh, “once you experience this way of being gradually awakened with beautiful acoustic tones, no other alarm clock will ever do.”
