19 Aug 7 Feng Shui Tips To Boost Happiness & Vitality This Year!
Now is a perfect time to feng shui your space for health, happiness and vitality! These seven tips will help create a home that nourishes your body, mind and spirit:
1. Remove your shoes before entering your home.
Make it a ritual to leave the stress of your job, traffic jams and bad days outside. It’s a purposeful way to make your home a haven, only allowing peaceful energy to come inside. If you like, place a trunk or an appealing shoe rack just inside the door. The simple act of removing your shoes is symbolic of casting off the worries and troubles, as well as the dirt, of the outside world.
2. Clean your space and clear clutter.
Clutter disrupts your life. When it’s rampant, you feel stressed about everything. You can’t find your keys, important letters, the right belt or a cherished memento. Disorder creates mayhem and hinders your ability to find peace. Make sure that your bedroom, closet and bathroom are in order. If you can begin your day with calm, you have a better chance of feeling centered as you go out into the world. One of the best antidotes to stress is an organized living environment.
3. Do a space cleansing and house blessing.
In order remove negative energy, sadness, fear, anger or disappointments from last year, it’s important to perform a space cleansing. You want fresh energy to surround you as you move into new projects and to invite new opportunities. After you do a space clearing, perform this simple house blessing with your family and friends or by yourself to invite positive energy into your home.
4. Surround yourself with an abundance of light, fresh air and greenery.
Open the doors and windows and invite nature in. As night draws near, avoid bright light for at least an hour before bed. Instead allow your body’s natural cycle to slowly move towards night. Use soft light in the bathroom and place dimmers in rooms you spend a good deal of time. For more harmony, oxygen and life-force, accessorize with plants. Choose ones that look happy as opposed to those with downward falling, droopy leaves.
