    How To Create A Bad Feng Shui Bedroom Step # 2:

    Bring on your exercise equipment!  A treadmill in your bedroom will definitely energize your love life and bring serenity and sensual energy to your bedroom.

    Bring all your dying plants, big and small, be it in chipped pots or yogurt containers. Your bedroom is the place to have them! Position the plants so that you can see them first thing when you wake up and the last thing before you go to sleep. Might be a bit of a competition here from either the TV, the computer(s) or the exercise equipment, but stay focused and do your best!
