SIMPLE FENG SHUI TIPS
1. Less is more.
Removing excess furniture and belongings is good start. Keeping a room clean and clutter-free has a calming effect on the mind. Repeat this process often.
2. Color is important.
Each of the five elements has meaning and colors associated with it. It is important to archive a balanced representation of all five in your room or space. You can use paint, artwork or furniture to help bring in all five elements.
3. Fresh air is healthful
Stale air is bad for your health and mental state. Open your windows when you can and try to get a cross breeze. If your home or office does not have enough windows, invest in a small air filter.
4. Plant life brings calm
Plants have a calming influence while radiating a strong and peaceful energy. Plants also make great air purifiers if buying a machine is too costly.
5. Mirrors add space
Mirrors help give the illusion of space, so they are very good for offices or hallways. They also bring in light from other areas of the house.
6. Keep bedrooms balanced
Your bedroom is important and its energy should be inviting, calm and exciting all at the same time. Help create this energy by removing all electronics or exercise equipment in the room.
7. Keep living rooms clear
For your living room, it is best to have an unobstructed flow of energy. Arrange your furniture with this in mind. It helps to envision water flowing. Would the water get blocked? Would it flow evenly throughout the room?
8. Keep kitchens bright
Your kitchen needs to be bright and welcoming. This can be achieved with several light sources, plant life and open windows. Yellow is a popular feng shui choice for most kitchens.
