Feng Shui Your Way: Tips For Improving Your Life Through Improving Your Home

Today is a rather dark and dreary day. It’s this kind of day that can be used to describe the lives of so many people. You just go through the motions and at the end of the day, bedtime just can’t seem to get here fast enough.

You’ve tried several ways to break up the funk in your life. You’ve drank more caffeine, you have treated yourself out, hung out with friends, and even took a shot at an adrenaline rush. Nothing seems to work. Have you ever considered that the answer could be as simple as a little home improvement?

To most of us, there would be little greater than being handed the keys to a new home. Below are some ways you can Feng Shui your way to a new living space and lift your spirits at the same time.

Living Room

The rut you have created in life could be the result of something as simple as the arrangement of your furniture. When entering a living room that has the benefit of Feng Shui, the first thing you are likely to notice is that there is no clutter. Clutter in your living space is often a good sign of unresolved clutter in your life.

The next thing you will want to adjust is the amount of light that shines into the room. This doesn’t mean you should go pick up a couple extra lamps. While artificial light has its benefits, natural sunlight is the best thing to pick up any mood. The vitamin D you receive from the sun’s rays, alone, is a cosmic antidepressant.

Create a way to let the sunshine in. Next, make sure to include bright colors. It is this detail that can turn your frown upside down just by constructing a place you just can’t connect to doom and gloom. Added variety in shapes can create a space that builds your desire to be creative. The creative juices of life allow us to know that we are still vital to the production of life.  

Bedroom

When considering the best way to cater to your Feng Shui in the bedroom, it’s all about your bed. This one piece of furniture is responsible for building the energy of your love and healing. Two things that are essential for pulling you out of the pit of monotony.

First, make sure that your bed has a sturdy headboard and frame and has a comfortable mattress. Most, do this anyway. Also, keep your bed free from clutter, especially underneath. Next, you are going to take into account the position of your bed.

It should be facing a door, but not lined up with it. If you have no other choice, make sure to elegantly place another piece of furniture between the door and the bed. When considering lighting, there should be varying levels. However, the two best types of light to let in are natural sunlight and candle light.

Outdoors

When attempting to brighten up the outside of your home, the biggest thing that you should keep in check is that it is open to the natural flow of energy that the outdoors already have. Keep the outside of your home neat and tidy.

Declutter the roof and clean out the gutters, for starters. Attempt to keep up the maintenance and repair of your home. Just being in the elements on a daily basis can leave your home looking years older than it is. Just think of how depressing it is for us to look in the mirror and realize that we aren’t 18 anymore.

Next, brighten up your yard, with several trees and flowers. This lends to a more natural setting and much better air quality. However, make sure to leave enough space between trees and your home. This is not only common sense, it’s considerate to the growth of the tree.  

Next time you are wondering how to get back to looking forward to the day, refer back to these tips. Your next good mood could be as close as rearranging the furniture.
