Vastu Tips to Keep Mind Engaged and for Positive Mood

It is always better to know about things that involve another person’s life; that makes sense. Reading not only informs and expands an individual’s knowledge, it also keeps them distracted and constrictively engaged.

Books can be chosen as per individual preferences. However, vastu experts recommend reading inspiring and motivational books during pregnancy.

Books on happy subjects provide the expectant mothers with the right direction to think in, helps uplifts their mood and keeps them feeling refreshed and happy.

Also, mothers can place pictures of cute babies or healthy children in their rooms to feel positive and hopeful about motherhood.

Vastu Tips for the Brahmasthan

Vedic architecture is based on Vastu Shastra and holds a lot of prominence for proponents.

Brahmasthan is a principal part of the house as per Vedic architecture and community planning. It is the centre or the precise middle of a building a geographical area.

Going by vastu tips for expecting mothers, the brahmasthan should be free from any obstructions. This point inside the house must be free of any sort of furniture, pillar, wall or any other physical fixture. It must also be well lit with overhead lights such as skylights.
