I’m frequently asked why Feng Shui considers it so important to make your bed each day.
Maybe you say to yourself,
- “What’s the point? I’m just going to mess it up again tonight.”
- “Who has time? It’s just another inconvenience.”
- “I don’t mind – I never see that room again until the end of the day.”
If you’re in the “Why make my bed?” camp, consider the Feng Shui of your bedroom, and especially its Primary Purpose in your life.
Do you use your bedroom to get a good night’s sleep? Foster romance and intimacy? Provide a serene sanctuary to which you can retreat each night?
If any of these are the case, then you’re better off making your bed.
- An unmade bed sends a message that’s forlorn and incomplete. It’s a form of clutter, reminding you of other difficulties and annoyances in your life.
- Making your bed is a key way to anchor your romantic Intention. When you’re seeking a new romantic relationship or wish to bring the spark back into your current one, a welcoming bed beckons love into your life.
- “There’s no hiding from Feng Shui eyes.” When you arise from your bed and don’t make it, the act of sleeping lacks closure. Your subconscious is aware that your bed sits rumpled, awaiting your return all day long.
A recent study (“Want To Sleep Better? Make Your Bed“) shows that people who make their beds are almost 20% more likely to get a good night’s sleep than those who don’t.
Making your bed could be just what you need to truly relax so you can wake up feeling refreshed each morning.
Do you make your bed every day? Why — or why not?
