The art of feng shui is both ancient and complex, involving a balancing of energies from different elements placed in different areas of the home. While incorporating good feng shui into the home and office is a large task, especially for the newcomer, it offers a broad spectrum of health benefits from the tangibly physical to emotional and mental. Taking the time to balance the spaces you’re in most and derive the most energy from, can improve quality of life and give you the ability to better utilize your energy without having to fight through the negative energy in your environment to do it.
Reducing Injuries From Bumping Into Stuff
Clutter is a detriment to good feng shui. It’s full of confusion, drags your energy down, and stagnates instead of boosting energy. While cleaning up your clutter may be difficult to begin, using your energy in scheduled sessions and attacking each room with a plan can lead to drastic energy benefits for you and anyone else in your home. Along with turning every room in your house into a pleasant place, removing clutter can improve your health through simple, obvious means: it makes it easier to move around.
Dodging odd end-tables, stepping on objects when you’re not paying attention, or having objects from too-high shelves fall off at unfortunate times are just a few of the more tangible health benefits to practicing good feng shui in the home. In the end, removing clutter from your home means taking out anything that doesn’t belong, either in a particular room or your house as a whole. What you keep needs a proper place that fits with the rest of the room, well out of danger of being a health hazard. In the end, reducing injuries from bumping into stuff is a small but effective step you can take in improving your overall health with feng shui.
Increase Motivation And Determination
Walking into your home at the end of a long workday shouldn’t make you feel more tired than you already were, but this is often the case. Utilizing feng shui well in your home won’t just make you feel less overwhelmed by clutter. A well-balanced home with elements that are both balanced and appealing to you will help balance you and your family, ease weariness, increase energy, and help you feel focused. Along with decorating and reducing clutter, feng shui also promotes having different spaces for different parts of your life.
Working metal and fire elements in your office will help increase your luck and your productivity while keeping water and earth elements in your home will help promote stability and increase communication with your family. Wellness in your life and determination at work both need to be supported by an open and healthy home and family; ensuring both places are balanced will increase motivation and determination in all aspects of your life.
Boost In Sleep Quality
Almost a third of your life is spent in your bedroom, so balancing it is incredibly important for wellness. While achieving good feng shui in the bedroom requires consistent work, such as ensuring natural light is filtering in whenever possible and keeping a good air flow, many of these steps can be worked into a relaxing and fulfilling daily routine. De-cluttering closets and opening up space under your bed are other steps you can take outside of furniture positioning to promote a good feng shui.
If neglected, your bedroom can easily become a source of sadness, loneliness, and stress in your life, all of which lead to poorer quality sleep. Keeping your bedroom open and filled with positive energy, however, will reduce bad dreams, make it easier to fall asleep, and deepen your rest, ensuring you wake up filling refreshed and ready to greet the day. This is vital to good health, as a boost in sleep quality will reduce your susceptibility to illnesses, keep your metabolism in check, and promote mental health.
Reduction In Stress
Stress is incredibly damaging to your health and can come from anywhere in your life, from finances and work to relationships to something as simple as an unappealing living space. Feng shui gives small steps to improve these areas of your life. Finances can be addressed by working in metal elements at your office to encourage luck and wealth or fire elements to promote productivity; intimate relationships can be improved by ensuring places in the home like the kitchen, bathroom, and especially bedroom are full of good energy and not traps for negative energy.
An open and communicative family, or positive friendships, are all encouraged by the energies given off by your home and the other spaces in which you meet. If nothing else, a home or office practicing good feng shui can make the location easier to live in, work in, and think in, by removing distractions and making you feel motivated and positive by being in them, which creates a drastic reduction in stress.
Increase In Overall Mood
Things like constant noise exposure can have a huge, negative impact on your mood. Regular foot traffic past places like your bedroom will also increase negative energies in what should be a peaceful place. Clutter increases depression, rooms not open to natural light increase stress, and color choices in a room can have a dramatic impact on the most common emotions experienced there. Good feng shui addresses all of these things and more.
By being aware of the placement of the rooms in your house and deliberate in choosing which rooms are used for what, your mood will no longer be weighed down by negative energies. Removing clutter, repainting walls, and reorganizing your furniture will promote positive energy throughout your home, will see an increase in overall mood in everyone in your family and make it easier for you to focus on the things that matter most in your life.
