Feng Shui Your Bedroom is the hot topic on Exploring Mind and Body. This is a fun show and short interview as I interview Dorothy Keith in 5 Minutes on How to Feng Shui Your Bedroom! Not only is she offering tips but for the first time as a guest doing this, she's put together the intro as well!

It's so important to clean old, stagnant and negative energy from your home. Many places like under the bed, in corners, even in closets hand on to energy that needs to be cleared out so we can move on emotionally.

5 Tips in 5 Minutes:


Be sure to have lighter colours in your bedroom. Cream, coral, peach, tan....earthy type of colors which include light blue's and greens as well. 

Stay away from red or oranges which are too stimulating.

Bed Position 

  • Move bed as far away from the door as possible
  • not under a window
  • find a solid wood headboard 
  • don't point your feet toward the door 

Stick to Curves not Corners 

  • Furniture should be round or curved not pointed
  • soften sharp corners with fabric 

Clear Clutter

  • clear clutter from corners, closets and especially under the bed


  • keep living plants in the room, not plastic 
  • place on night stand
  • flowers

Shin Splints How to Prevent and Treat is something I wanted to talk about because the question just happened to come up in our Monthly Membership from Dallas. I love questions because it gives me a better idea of what you want to know, so let's talk about shin splints!

Show Notes:

The first thing you should know is if you do nothing they will absolutely get worse. You don't want them to get worse because then they'll get in the way of you reaching your health and fitness goals.

Undestanding what shin splints are - which is muscles actually tearing away from the bone, should help encourage your to do more things to prevent.

Regarding Prevention 

It's important to check your shoes and make sure they aren't too old. 90% of people wear shoes far past the time they should be replaced. This causes issue from everything to knee and ankle pain to shin splints. Replace your shoes on a regular basis especially if you're running on them.

Pay attention to surfaces you're running on - hard surfaces i.e. concrete will cause shin splints so try to run on a track, grass or even dirt.

Tape from time to time before shin splints come if possible. Find a professional to help.

Compression socks are another great way to prevent shin splints.

Always heat before activity and ice afterwards.

Strengthen - use a rubber band, walk backwards, or crunch a towel with your toes.
