Let’s face it, moving home is exhausting. But it’s also the perfect time to take a step back, take a look around you and your life and start afresh. Now is the time to embrace the saying “out with the old, in with the new”.

The mattress you’ve been sleeping on may have been part of your old life, but should it be part of your new? Are you aware of how long a mattress should last? Have you grown to ignore the aches and pains you wake with each morning? If so, what better excuse do you need to replace your old mattress? In fact, Feng Shui recommends that if nothing else is new in your new abode, the mattress should be. Let’s find out what Feng Shui principles you should follow when moving a mattress to have a happy and harmonious new home.

An Introduction to Feng Shui and Lucky Dates According to Tong Sheng Tradition

Feng Shui has many customs that should be observed when moving house to make the experience positive and harmonious.

Tong Sheng

Lucky Moving Dates According to Tong Sheng

One of the first to consider is your moving date. Tong Sheng is a traditional Chinese almanac based on the Chinese lunar calendar used by Feng Shui practitioners to identify good and bad days for major life events such as marriage, funerals and house moves. Moving on an auspicious date according to Tong Sheng is vital to bring good fortune on your new home. In fact, these auspicious dates are the most recommended dates to install your new bed and mattress according to Tong Sheng. The auspicious dates for the remainder of the year are listed below, but remember to check with the Tong Sheng carefully before deciding a day to move.

The An Chuang Ceremony: Installing your bed as part of your wedding celebrations

Whether you are moving home as part of your wedding celebrations or moving from one house to another, you must choose an auspicious moving day to install your bed. If you are setting up your new bed in preparation for your wedding, then you’ll be taking part in the An Chuang Ceremony. This involves setting up and decorating your bed with traditional items that will bless your marriage with harmony, joy and many healthy offspring. Held at an auspicious time and date,chosen from the Tong Sheng calendar, between 3 days and 2 weeks before your wedding day, various rituals (such as making the bed with a new set of bedding) are carried out under the supervision of the groom’s parents to ensure a happy life together.

#2 Moving a Mattress Is Bad for Feng Shui!

Feng Shui energy thrives on letting go of the old and welcoming the new, so why should your mattress be any different? According to Feng Shui principles, we should start with clear energy to maximise harmony, prosperity and good energy.  Imagine the ‘dirt’ contained within your old mattress, everything from dust to mites, by moving it, you are only going to collect more along the way. Start afresh with this simple purchase!

#3 It’s Time To Consider Replacing Your Mattress

Have you been doing your mattress maintenance correctly? Even so, a decade-old mattress is no good for either your Feng Shui or your health. Those aches and pains you wake up with may be less to do with your age and more to do with that of your mattress. What better time to replace your mattress than now?
