There is a very important direction in every space which is termed as the health direction. The North of North East direction i.e., the area between North direction and North East direction governs the health & immunity front for the residents. To ensure the children remain healthy, this direction must be kept healthy. This direction is the ideal location for placing medicines, medical records & health related foods. Any healing related items should also be placed here as per Vastu.
If this direction is disturbed as per Vastu Shastra, it can impact our health. In case a toilet or kitchen is already planned in this direction, one must get Vastu treatment done for the same. It is to be noted that Vastu treatment does not always require demolition and reconstruction.

The direction of kids bedroom is extremely important for their health & growth. This is because children sleep for around 8-10 hours and sometimes even more in their bedroom. Also, their belongings, books, toys & photographs etc. are generally placed in their bedroom only. The energies of the direction in which the bedroom is planned, is surely going to make an impact on them as they will be spending more time there. Sharing some useful tips to attract better health and right growth for children:
Colours play an equally important role in shaping the Vastu of a place. If the direction for kids bedroom is chosen correctly as per Vastu, but we end up choosing the wrong colour schemes, we may even loose the positive attributes of the correct directional placement. For example, if the kids bedroom is planned in West of South West direction, using green or red shades will disturb the Vastu balancing of children bedroom. The positive attributes of that direction will be lost due to the wrong colour schemes. Additionally, these non-vastu compliant colour schemes leads to health challenges for kids. For example – using shades of Green & Red in West of South west room will not just negatively impact the performance in studies but also will keep them under the weather with frequent cough and colds.
Always prefer to use colour schemes as per Vastu guidelines, in whichever direction the bedroom is planned. Cream, Ivory, beige & off-white are neutral shades that can be used in any direction for kids room to ensure Vastu is not disturbed. Some colours can definitely be used in accordance with Vastu like grey or yellow shades in West & South-West, Green or Blue shades in North or East. It is always better to consult a Vastu professional rather than end up choosing the wrong set of colours.
Also, sleeping position or head direction is important for kids to ensure a sound sleep. If the sleep pattern is good, the child growth is better. For parents who feel their child is not getting the proper sleep, they must check the sleeping position of their child, along with the bedroom direction.
One must ensure that the head must point towards South direction while sleeping. If this is not available or practical, east or west directions can also be chosen to point the head. One must not ever point their head towards North direction while sleeping. This causes disturbed sleep patterns and ultimately affects health of kids.If the house is planned in a manner which allows maximum daylight and ventilation entering from all sides, chances of falling prey to ill-health is minimized. These are the simple, yet effective aspects of Vastu Shastra which must be considered. Know our Vastu Expert Acharya Chhaya Goyal
