As students return to school over the next few weeks, many are getting ready to cram their lives into tiny shared rooms.
Dorm room Feng Shui makes life easier for the student and help him or her to become more successful in school.
The first step is to apply the Bagua Map in a dorm room. Next, create a space where good things can happen!
No matter how small the room is, a sense of openness allows good Chi to flow, activating positive energy that will help you (or your student) succeed in school.
- Create Clarity in the room. Decluttering — Feng Shui’s #1 recommendation, always — makes good practical sense. Get organized with good-looking containers and racks for your shelves and closets. (Here’s a cute Container Store video illustrating my point: Give Yourself Some Space)
- Empower Your Bed Placement — Rather than placing your bed so it takes up the center of the room, position it in a back corner farthest from the door. This is Feng Shui’s Command Position, the “power spot” where you are most safe, secure, and in control of your space. When you’re in charge of your space, you’re in charge of your life.
- Raise Your Bed — It’s true that in Feng Shui we don’t usually recommend under-bed storage, but in a tiny dorm room every inch counts. These bed risers will help.
- And here are my Feng Shui Do’s and Don’ts for Under-Bed Storage.
