It’s the holiday season and I thought you would love to read some Feng Shui tips for your hotel room. Whether you are going on a family holiday or a romantic getaway, it is always worth taking a few minutes to make sure your hotel room feels comfortable. After all, our surroundings influence our well-being and a little bit of Feng Shui can make all the difference to ensuring your peace and comfort – even when you are on holiday!
Nowadays, most hotel rooms are set up in line with the basic Feng Shui principles, which is of course great news:
- The beds usually have sturdy (sometimes extravagantly large!) headboards, providing support and protection for the guest when they sleep.
- The headboard is placed against a solid wall.
- The bed is positioned diagonal from the doorway, ie not in line with the door.
In addition, I would like to share some simple tips for your hotel room so you can create a healthy, restful and enjoyable base for your holiday stay.
- If you can, choose a room with windows that open. Do make sure you open them to air the room before you go to sleep.
- Choose a room, which is away from noisy vending machines, elevators, or any electrical installations such as aircon compressors or heating systems. Away from street noise too, and bars or restaurants.
- Unpack as soon as you can and personalise the room with a few things you have brought. This will bring your own positive energy into the room and allow you to quickly settle into your new surroundings.
- Switch on your favourite music as you settle in your room. This creates a powerful feel-good factor and clears away any remaining energies from previous guests.
- Mirrors have too much yang energy, especially if they reflect the sunlight during the day. Cover them at night with a towel or a scarf to help you sleep soundly.
- If there is a TV in the room, cover it when not in use, for the same reason as the mirror. Avoid falling asleep in front of the TV (that also applies to your children) as your subconscious is then being programmed by shows you might not choose to watch if you were awake.
- Switch your mobile phone and other electronics off over night. If you must keep them on, then place them at least five metres away from you. At that distance the electromagnetic fields are less likely to disturb you.
- Bring your favourite piece of clothing to wear when relaxing in your hotel room. You can also use this to cover the TV or mirror if it is directly facing the bed.
- If it is a romantic get-away, enhance the romance Chi in your room with a beautiful bouquet of pink, mauve and peach colour flowers. Remember to change the water every day to keep the flowers fresh and discard the flowers as soon as they start to wilt as dying, dead or dried flowers have a negative effect.
- And lastly, always keep the bathroom door closed and the toilet seat down during your stay! You do not want to flush away the good energy you have created in your holiday home.
Enjoy your holiday!
