New Year, New Bedroom Chi

on Tuesday, 24 January 2017.

bedroom chai blog organicbedthreadsEnergy, that invisible element, like wind and time. We know it's there, we can feel it and its repercussions, we are surrounded by many types - electronic, atmospheric, flammable and personal to name a few. Good, bad, or indifferent, the energy in our homes need to be cared for, or you will be affected. So, there is a lot to be said about getting the energy right in ones living spaces, especially the bedroom as we spend approximately one third of our lives in slumber.

In the bedroom, where you harness the life-renewing force of sleep, chi (energy) becomes perhaps more important than anywhere else. Bedroom energy can influence family relationships, and it is one of the most important rooms for marriage and relationship, our greatest creative loving action. Building biology, space clearing and the 5000-year-old practice of Feng Shui - combining elements of geology, psychics, mathematics, philosophy, astrology, astronomy and intuition - are actions that create beautiful and nourishing environments that enhance positive chi.

Most of us can feel when a space is at odds with our comfort level, and instinctively make changes to that area. You don't need to get bogged down with some of the intricate and esoteric applications that these principles can go into interesting depth about, though applying some of the more practical guides may help the quality of your rest and sleep, enhance harmony in relationships, romance and love, promote a healthy career and prosperity.

In 2013 it was 8% by 2016 it was 9.2%, a sad increase when, after all, we are only letting ourselves down with the promises we set for ourselves and in turn how we treat ourselves. 
 
The aim of setting goals is to surely fall in love with taking care of our self, mind, body and spirit. The key to achieving our goals, is to ditch the weighty bucket list of resolutions that reappear each year, without a great deal to show for our chipping away from the previous year, which often keeps us feeling guilty.
 
On the first day of 2017, the Statistic Brain Research Institute conducted research and found the following revealing new year resolutions statistics:
