In addition to the dorm room decorating challenges we just looked into, let's not forget the main one - you will have to sleep and study in this dorm room for the whole year! Meaning: you have to have a comfortable bed to get a good night sleep, you have to have space for your computer, printer, etc. In other words, you just have to make it work for a student who will absorb a large amount of into in the next 9 months. (This is the main reason you are there, right?)
You have to deal with all the electronics without creating a mess of your health (get familiar with the dangers of high EMFs); you need good quality air to feed your brain, you need good quality light to stay happy and healthy, etc.
Feng Shui Solutions:
- Be sure you create a good feng shui bed. Depending on your specific dorm room bed, you might want to bring an additional mattress, warm blankets, good bedding, etc. This is important, as not getting good quality sleep will eventually wear you down and reflect in lower grades. Not fun.
- Do your best in creating a good work area. This will be a challenge, I assure you, but it can also be exciting and rewarding. Good lighting, good seating, good organization - start with these three basics.
- A stylish small filing cabinet can be very helpful. If you are not totally digital, a message/bulletin board is a must. The reason I say this is because it is good to see all the tasks you have to accomplish, but it is not good to have your computer on all the time. Just for the sake of your health, you need to take breaks from all electronics.
- You are about to experience exciting, fun and truly great times when you make tons of new friends, fall in love once or twice, face situations you never knew existed, etc. Which means, having a good feng shui energy in your space is a huge benefit.
When you have some time after all the basics here are covered, you can look into feng shui bagua colors that are best for you, your best directions, and most common feng shui bedroom for love mistakes. You want to have it all covered to be sure there is a good support system there for you.
Good luck in decorating the greatest dorm room ever!
