Feng Shui

This weekend I have been working on de-cluttering and spiffing up my bedroom. According to Feng Shui some of the best colors to use in your bedroom are ‘skin’ tones so I went out and bought some new sheets and a wonderful comforter. For a better nights sleep the space under your bed is to be completely cleared out… The under of my bed is HORRIBLE.

I plan on winning the lotto by the end of next month so, this weekend has been spent trying to up the ‘chi’ in my bedroom by clearing out and tossing the clutter… I figure I’m going to need all the chi I can get. Joking. My sudden interest in Feng Shui was inspired by my recent attempts to get ‘organized’. I needed a quick motivation boost so I went searching on the internet and came across several recommendations for the book ‘Clear your clutter with Feng Shui’. As it turns out, my home isn’t ideal for any feng shui practitioner so I figured it wouldn’t hurt to make  a few changes.

Here is a copy of my small list of ‘bedroom changes’ to do this weekend:

1. Buy an air purifier – I found one really cheap at a pawn shop.

2. Clean out under the bed

3. Hang up the two big paintings I got for my birthday

4. Dust all books and bookshelves

5. Set out new candles

6. Switch out sheets

7. Toss old, worn, ill-fitting and unused clothing

8. Get rid of all the junk…

Well, thats it for now. So far, I’ve tossed out three full bags of old paperwork, worn clothing and trash items and I’ve gathered two boxes of items to donate to the Salvation Army. Woo hoo! Go me! After this I think I’m going to hunker down with a nice cup of hot tea and a book or a pen and sketch pad… It’ll be my reward for all this work… Until next time!
