What is Feng Shui?
Feng Shui is loosely based on ancient Eastern philosophies, acting as a series of guidelines intended to help create a sense of harmony and balance to promote positive energy within your surroundings. The principles can be pretty complex to a certain extent, but we can agree that we want our homes to feel more restful and at peace. Luckily, it’s a cinch to start working simple feng shui practices into your life – so I’m sharing a handful of little ways to feng shui your home! And, we promise, it really is easy.
This one is simple! Just place the bed within the view of the door and windows, close off the closet and bathroom, and avoid hanging anything heavy above or over the bed. This will help alleviate stress. Also, by placing three or nine bright plants in your bedroom can help you feel more spicy between the sheets.
With closets come a mountain of clutter and unneeded stress. Having a hard time feeling settled in your bedroom? It could be your closet! Closets should be neat, tidy, well-organized and hidden behind doors. Try leaving empty space to promote flow of energy.
The Living Room
This is one of the most important aspects of your inner peace. Your living room should be a warm and inviting place that is ultimately a reflection of your personal style. Include artwork, photos, and family heirlooms to welcome others into your space. Opt for as much natural lighting as possible, and avoid overhead lighting, which can make the energy feel too harsh.
Hopefully, these tips will help! Enjoy!
