The ancient Chinese practice of Feng Shui has been long celebrated for helping people improve themselves. By thoughtfully placement common and uncommon objects, Feng Shui practices can help awaken positivity in homes and love lives. With simple techniques, you can create an inviting atmosphere filled with love and romance whether you are single or married.
Remove Distractions from the Bedroom
Use your bedroom for relaxing, sleeping and intimate encounters with your spouse. Avoid placing a television in the bedroom, as it can distract you from spending time enjoying each other’s conversation before bedtime. Leave the laptop in your home office to prevent yourself from working in the bedroom, answering last-minute emails.
Clear the Clutter
Remove the clutter from your home, especially from the bedroom area, to invite love and romance into your space. Whether you have old stuffed animals from college acting as decor in your bedroom, or you’re using the corner of the room to store dirty clothes or miscellaneous documents, clutter can have a negative impact on your love life. Simplify by finding storage containers to hold seasonal items and items you can’t fit into your closets. Get rid of items you don’t use by donating them charity or a thrift store.
Add Warm Inviting Colors
Colors are known to have an impact on mood, whether it is the colors you wear or use to decorate your home. Create a romantic setting for an at-home date night or in your bedroom by introducing colors like pink, red and white into your decor. These colors evoke feelings of love, passion and fidelity.
A king-sized bed gives you and your spouse ample space for sleeping, and it’s even spacious enough for weekend mornings cuddled up with the kids in bed. But a king-sized bed could be killing the romance in your relationship. Opt for a queen-sized bed and get a little closer to your spouse at night to help reignite the romance in your relationship.
Luxuriate in Comfortable Bedding
Indulge in luxurious bedding–the higher the thread count the better–to make your bedroom more welcoming to romantic encounters. Comfortable bedding can make you and your spouse want to stay in bed a little longer and make you look forward to retreat to the bedroom after a long day or work and caring for the kids.
For 2, Please
Share your space with your spouse, or if you don’t have a spouse, leave space available to invite the possibility. From investing in two night stands to including two sets of towels in the bathroom, these small changes to your decor can help awaken the spirit of love in your home and in your life.
