Easy Ways to Refresh Your Space and Spirit for Spring
Spring is (almost) here! Let's lighten and refresh our environments with a few easy actions that will also lighten and refresh our spirit!
Feng Shui Bedroom
Remove stacks of books or magazines from bedstands or night tables. Also, minimize the number of electronic devices plugged into the wall (computer, smartphone, alarm clock, TV). Each of these quick fixes will make the bedroom environment more restful. To strengthen the restful nature of your bedroom even more, change the color/pattern of your bed linens to ones that are harmonious with your unique 5-Elements composition.
Get rid of items in your home that you see on a daily basis, which have negative associations for you. For instance, something that was purchased at a difficult time in your life, or that reminds you of a relationship that went sour. Of course the smaller the object the easier, but do your best.
Engage the Senses
Bringing fresh air and sunlight into your home will refresh and engage the senses. Clean the windows, open them to let fresh air in. Open the doors between rooms to let air circulate. Play upbeat, positive and relaxing music while you're making these changes. Use flowers, fruit and maybe even cookie-baking for naturally beautiful fragrance to waft through your home.
