We have all returned to the routine, we are eager to know the news that the next few months bring us and we want to give our home a tour. You are not the only person who arrives with charged batteries and, therefore, willing to embrace changes and this is the perfect time to do so, to renew spaces and undertake new challenges with a positive attitude and good energy. You may not know it but this is precisely the philosophy that Feng Shui maintains with which, far from superstitions, mysteries, and transcendental theories, calculations, and mathematical formulas are applied to promote the feeling of well-being in our daily spaces. You do not believe it? Maybe it’s because you still don’t know how and why decoration and order can help us achieve well-being and peace.
Discover the 5 simple tips to apply at home:
1. An orderly and clear entrance. The main door of every home is also the energy entrance door. It is important, therefore, that it is clear, attractive, and well lit to generate a pleasant feeling of comfort. “It is not recommended that main doors or entrances are monopolized by large trees or hindered by a wall, a large piece of furniture, or a column. This what it does is promote an external “poisoned” arrow called “Yin Sha”, which favors the frustration and disappointment of those who inhabit it “, explains Sallie Tsui Sien, Director of Feng Shui Foundation.
3. Light is the key, but not too little or too much. Correct lighting (especially natural light during the day) favors good concentration and performance of the person. But, as in everything, the secret is in balance: an excess of energy creates an imbalance that can lead to health problems. If too much sunlight enters a room, the use of thin curtains is recommended to lower the intensity. And in the workspace? Place a table lamp on your workbench and let the concentration flow.
4. Capture moments. Well-being is not only influenced by external elements, but also by gentle internal work. “Center and hold your attention on an object for 3 minutes cultivating mindfulness. It returns to the object every time any thought occurs to the mind.
5. Stop and breathe. How many times a day are we aware of our breathing? Stop, sit down, and become aware of it. Repeat it at least 2 or 3 times a day (morning, noon, and night). Just breathe and allow things to be as they are.
