  • From decluttering your space to adding a diffuser or lightly scented candle  

Feng shui could be the key to a great night’s sleep, according to wellness experts who say it’s very important to arrange your bedroom in a specific way.

Even novices in the art of fen shui can achieve a more balanced bedroom space by taking note of key rules, like keeping the space clutter free and adding greenery. 

The art of feng shui is to maximise the flow of ‘qi’ (energy or life force) for utmost safety and productivity, according to Tara Kaff, Accredited Wellness & Nutrition Expert for X50 Lifestyle.

Setting an alarm clock instead of a phone, having some flowers and using a diffuser are all simple steps people can take to get a better sleep, according to feng shui

Tara has shared her top tips to improving the feng shui in your home, each of the guidelines are easy to follow and achievable for most people: 

Ditch the clutter

A messy bedside table equates to a scattered mind. Clear it of any ‘stressors,’ like food, electronics, clothes and any random objects.

The last thing you see before you turn off the lights should be a peaceful and reassuring sight. 

Light a candle to unwind

A lit candle can help you drift off to dreamland more smoothly. Try placing a lightly fragranced candle on each bedside table preferably with a lavender fragrance to encourage a restful sleep. 

Add a flower

While a vase full of flowers should be kept far away from your bed, try keeping at least one plant friend nearby, such as an orchid. Orchids are ideal for the bedroom as they produce oxygen at night and support your health. 

Try a diffuser

Investing in a small diffuser can perform double duty by adding moisture to dry air and helping you unwind with the power of essential oils.

Use a silk eye-mask

You’ll sleep soundly with a light-blocking mask, especially one made from silk. Keep it in your bedside drawer for ultimate relaxation when you turn in for the night.

Herbal tea

Sleep teas, like the X50 Herbal Tea Sleepy blend, contain a mix of herbal ingredients proven to encourage a good night’s rest. Certain herbs allow us to unwind so that we can fall asleep quicker; while others promote better sleep quality once we’ve dozed off. 

Herbs such as chamomile and lavender help us to relax and release the stresses of the day, and to gently drift off for a peaceful night’s sleep, while Valerian Root, which is often referred to as ‘nature’s valium’, supports deep and restorative sleep.

Swap your phone for an alarm

To limit your screen time before bed, put your phone in a drawer and opt for an alarm clock instead. If you have trouble falling asleep or waking up, consider upping the ante and getting one that does timed meditation, light cues or a sound machine.

These simple tips can help people get a better night’s sleep and even help couples maintain and build a stronger connection, according to the expert.
