  • Make sure that your bedroom does not have any mirrors. In Feng Shui, mirrors themselves hold great significance and are sources of energy. You should avoid placing them in bedrooms so that your own energy circulates freely within the premises of your room. Also, make sure that there isn’t anything under your bed. You should also avoid placing your TV inside your bedroom since TVs distract couples from each other.
