We all are aware that sleep is one of the most important aspects that impacts the quality of life. Good sleeping habits are thus super important. But there a lot of factors that affect the sleeping patterns along with our general wellness. From the food, we eat to what kind of bedsheet we sleep on to the placement of our bed and the direction we sleep in. 

Feng Shui an ancient Chinese technique that focuses on the placement of energy in your life, it determines how the spaces around you can be organised to channelise positive energy. On the other hand, Vastu Shastra is the study of balancing the architectural structures and placing them in order to attract positivity, prosperity, and luck.  Here’s what Vastu Shashtra and Feng Shui say about sleeping well.

Vastu Shashtra studies began in India and therefore a large chunk of Indians follow this science of architecture to build their home spaces.  Vastu Shashtra basically deals with space and to make sure that you are sleeping well through the night here’s what to do:

As we said, the direction we are sleeping(how vitamin deficiency can cause lack of sleep) is very important too, Vastu Shashtra suggests that space or panch bhutas interact directly with wind, sun, and other such important natural elements and therefore the best direction for sleeping is with your head placed in the South direction and feet towards the North.

One should never lie in the north-south direction as it is believed this direction can disturb the body and sleep. The human head is considered to have polar-like attraction and when one sleeps in the north-south direction it repels the like poles. It has been medically studied and found that sleeping in the south direction helps reduce high blood pressure and other such conditions.

Feng Shui Suggests 

Just like what Vastu Shashtra suggests, Feng Shui too, believes that sleeping southward is the best. The warm winds from Chinese lands flow towards you and you are able to enjoy disturbance-free sleep.
