Feng Shui Tips on Restful Sleep in Summer

Feng Shui Tips on Restful Sleeping through Summer

Here are some feng shui tips on how to encourage a restful sleep and keep cool during the summer months.  The full article with my tips was published in Spirit & Destiny Magazine.

  • Clear out winter duvets from your bedroom and replace with white cotton sheets.
  • Wear cotton nightclothes to decrease your body heat.
  • Remove electrical appliances from your bedroom and switch plugs off, since they cause unnecessary yang heat.
  • Spring clean your room and remove any clutter, to keep it light and airy.
  • From a feng shui perspective rooms should be a light, yin color to encourage restful sleep, this is especially important in the summer months when dark colors can add to yang heat.
  • In the morning and also before going to bed drink a glass of cool boiled water with a pinch of salt. Since during the summer months we lose salt whilst sweating, which may cause dehydration.
  • Avoid drinking red wine, eating red meat and spicy food during summer months as they cause excessive yang heat in our body increasing our internal body heat.
  • Place a large glass of water by your bed (not for drinking) to balance the air in your room.
  • If you have a choice sleep in a north, northwest or west facing room. These are naturally cooler directions. (In the Northern Hemisphere)
  • Avoid sleeping in the loft, as heat rises up and the top floor will be the warmest.
  • Keep a small window slightly open to let in some fresh air & energy, through the night.
