As it is clear that Vastu Sashtra is basically science, it is obvious to have technology on the list. As phones are an integral part of our lives today, it is hard to keep it away from us even when we sleep. However, the least we can do is not keep it under our pillow while we sleep. It is no secret that as mobile phones are continuously in touch with the mobile tower, it generate a lot of electromagnetic radiation. The situation worsens when the phone is on charge or you are on a poor network area. The radiation surrounding the phone can damage our brain and slower the process of our growth. To avoid such detrimental effects from electronics such as phones and tabs, either switch it off or keep it in airplane mode while you sleep. However, if it is not possible to turn it off then at least place it more than 7 feet away from your sleeping position.
Being a part of modern technology, WiFi Routers are no safer than mobile phones. In fact they generate more radiation in comparison to the phone. Therefore, avoid installing WiFi routers in the bedrooms at all. However, if there is no other option, then at least turn it off at night.
Although it might seem like a good idea to decorate your bedroom with soft toys, it is actually considered a poor plan in Vastu shastra. Doesn’t matter how squishy or cozy your soft toy may feel, it has the capability to lower your self-esteem. Soft toys not only soak moisture, dirt and dust from the environment, it also takes in all negative emotions and bad intentions. Having it in your bedroom can effect your sleep and leave you with nightmares and mental disturbances.
Box beds are a modern invention which is solves the storage problem in today’s generation. In modern apartment living there is no proper space for storage, therein, people clutter their box beds with stuffs. Therefore, one must avoid sleeping on such inventions where air cannot circulate freely below the bed. A heavy and cluttered space can effect your subconscious in feeling dull when you wake up.
Most people like to hang a large painting behind their bed or somewhere in their bedroom. If the painting is bright and joyful then it is definite to help you enjoy a good night sleep. But hanging a dark painting, showing dark emotions, will dampen your mood and spirit. It is in fact better not to hang any painting behind your bed.
