Feng Shui, Milieu Therapy & Eco-friendly Furniture

Posted on Apr 20, 2015


Milieu therapy is clinical term for how one’s physical and social environment can increase one’s wellbeing. Traditionally, Milieu therapy is applied to people who suffer from some kind of serious mental-illness, but its principles can be applied to anyone who wants to live a healthier and more gratifying life. For example, reorganizing a cluttered space can not only free you of unnecessary possessions but it also creates the space you need for new things to enter your life, and it makes it easier to move around your house without bumping into something. On a social level, using preventive medicine and being proactive by asking those you live with what they need each day and honoring their boundaries goes a long way towards maintaining a peaceful home. And if they irritate you later on, then you can always apply Milieu therapy by demolishing a roll of toilet-paper with a baseball bat in your backyard when no one’s looking.

Of course, no one wants to sleep nonstop for 20 years, unless you’re Rip Van Winkle or really tired, but 8 hours of deep sleep is necessary for most people. The polar opposite of Sleeping Beauty is the ever-vigilant insomniac, who struggles to get a good nights rest.  There are many steps one can take to help support a good and sound sleep, but one step that many people neglect to consider is the idea of a comfortable, exceptional quality mattress and all natural bedding, which can be a great help, in getting a better night rest.

The Next Right Angle on Platform Beds

Posted on Mar 13, 2015

mummy
King Tut’ had a lot of gold and a lot of dedicated constructions workers, but he also had something just as good as gold—a platform bed. Of course, his bed and his bedroom were unique to his time in ancient Egypt, where pyramids were popping up left and right, but like today’s modern platform bed, King Tutankhamun’s bed had no need for a cumbersome box-spring, and I’ll bet my miniature gold-plated mummy that his mattress was made from some kind
