6-8 hours of sleep is very important for a healthy life. Sleep with your head towards the south for a peaceful night. For the people with Kapha and Vata constitution, it is recommended to sleep on the left side. Pita constitution should sleep on the right side.

​2. Steps to health

You will be surprised to know that the humble staircase can also have an effect on your health. If there is a requirement of staircase in your home, make sure that it is not in the center of the home. Design and construct it in the side. A staircase in the center of the home may lead to serious health issues.

3. ​Let the energy flow

The center of the house, brahmasthan, should preferably be left empty or no heavy furniture should be kept there. This is to allow the free flow of the energy. Furniture will obstruct the flow of energy. This is the exact reason why old homes had an open courtyard in the center of the house.

​4. An abode for God

A temple in home attracts positive vibe into your home. It strengthens the positive energy and clears the home of negative vibes. Reserve a place for pooja in your home. Even if you are an atheist, still at least have a statue of God or any religious symbol in your home.

​5. Beam above the head

Overhead beams are constructed to support the structure. However, while decorating our homes, we construct false ceiling to make it attractive. But be careful that no beams should run through the center of the rooms. These beams may cause disturbed mind since it blocks the positive energy and communication of mind.

​6. Balance of the power of fire

Fire is the vital source of energy. So we need to be extra careful with the placement of the fire elements in our home. It has to be perfect balance for a good health of the family. According to Vastu, southeast or northwest is the place for fire. Fire elements of the home, kitchen, stove, fireplace, open flames or barbeque should be placed in southeast or northwest direction only.

Make it a habit to light a candle in the fire direction, i.e. southeast or northwest, every day. It’s a beautiful way to illuminate the darkness. Besides it enhances the aesthetic beauty of the space. It burns the negativity from the home. The colours of its flame represent the effect it will have in your home and life.

​8. Importance of every direction

Apart from its beautiful illumination, candles have a significant role to play in our home. If someone from your family is unwell, keep a burning candle in the room of the sick for a couple of days or till he or she is well. In fact each direction has its own significance and importance for placing a burning candle. North is good for career and wealth. North-east is for knowledge and wisdom. East is for family matters and health. South is for fame and success. South-west is for love and relationships. West is to enhance the creativity of the residents. North-west is for friendship. And if you want to balance off everything peacefully, then the place for the candle is the center of the home.
