Seasonal Feng Shui: As Autumn Approaches, sun & air your bedding

Summer is winding down, especially for those of us in the North Eastern US (and of course many other areas!). But there are some bright, hot days in store for us before autumn is here to stay. 

Now is an excellent time to air out your bedding and other lounge items and let the sunlight cleanse it. Sunlight can kill mold, fungi, bacteria, virus', dust mites and more. Sunlight also stimulates chi flow and removes stagnation. So drag those pillows, blankets, feather beds, and comforters and let the sunlight freshen them up for you. Don't overlook throw pillow and blankets. Even small easily moved upholstered furniture pieces can benefit from a day in the sun. 

As a funny aside, my daughter thinks our bedding laid out thus, looks like "a flock of sheep."


  1. It does look like a pretty flock of sheep...
    As always thank you for the tips Diana. We're still having a few days of sun here and i will follow your advice !

  2. When I first saw this picture I thought it was sheep.
    Funny how our brains all think alike that way.
