More people are using the ancient art of feng shui to add a sense of balance to their homes. If you’d like to give it a try, here are four tips to help you increase the flow of positive energy to your home.
Creating space that allows energy to flow freely is important in Feng Shui.
1. Mind Over Mess
Clearing clutter allows space for new ideas. You don’t have to blitz the whole house; focus on one room, making it a sanctuary.
2. No Surprises
Place desks and beds so your back isn’t to the door. Facing an entrance reduces anxiety and prepares you to face what comes in.
3. Mix Yin and Yang
Balance a room with opposite looks. Too much yin (quiet) can be depressing, and too much yang (energy) frenetic. Add pillows to a hard couch, and counter vibrant colours with pastels.
4. Ditch the Dead
Dried flowers lack vitality, but live plants or fresh bouquets lift the mood.
