Balance is vital to all life in this universe, thus it is important to ensure a harmonious balance in your home too. This can be done through arranging a few things in your house differently and taking heed of ancient wisdom. Vastu is actually a complex science which has been simplified and popularized so that the masses can benefit from it. 

In today's idea book we would like to share with you some simple Vastu tips for a happy and prosperous home. The tips suggested here do not require big architectural changes in the building, rather more like the rearrangement of furniture and minor changes like that. Small details are very important in Vastu and can have a big impact on the energy flow of your house. We hope you will be inspired to try some of the ideas here.

1. Vastu for the bedroom

Mirrors are an important element in the bedroom according to Vastu. However, care has to be taken as to which position the mirror is placed in. This is especially important if it's the children's room. Ensure that the mirror is placed in a position where it is not a distraction. 

2. Sleeping direction

Another important Vastu tip for the bedroom is regarding the position of the bed and your sleeping direction. It is believed that sleeping with your head facing the south and your feet facing the north can help you have a better sleep. If the sleeping direction is switched to the opposite, it may cause insomnia and illness. 

3. Vastu for the pooja room

All statues and idols of deities should only be placed on the eastern side of the pooja room and pictures of deceased loved ones should not be kept inside the room. It is also highly recommended not to place the pooja room under the stairs, where it is dark and gloomy, rather place it in a bright spot in the house which receives plenty of natural light.

4. Tulsi plant

The Tulsi plant is a very important part of Vastu in the home as the holy basil cleanses the house of negative energy. It is best to place the plant in front of the house facing the eastern direction.

Most importantly, the sink area should be distanced from the stove area as the element of water and fire should not come too close together as these two opposing energies will cause friction when placed too close together. If it is possible, ideally the kitchen should be facing the north-eastern direction.
