Creating a balanced home with Feng Shui

2020 has shown how important it is to focus our attention to the place we live in.

It’s been more than one year that the world’s population has been locked inside their homes and this has created an opportunity for focusing on the home environment aiming to improve it.

Harmony, comfortable and functionality became the focus when redecorating the house and there are a few tools and frameworks we could use to help to find this balance.

One ancient tradition which focuses on creating a harmonic home, is Feng Shui.

According to Wikipedia: “Feng shui, also known as Chinese geomancy, is a pseudoscientific traditional practice originating from ancient China, which claims to use energy forces to harmonize individuals with their surrounding environment.”

Some things are known to be simple and at the same time very helpful to boost the way your house looks.

  1. Painting the walls and bringing colorful stones and crystals to decorate your house. Some earth elements helps to help the inner balance;
  2. Changing the colour of current furniture, pillows, throws and blankets. Sometimes smalls changes can bring the winter or summer vibes to your house, without having to spend too much money with refurbishment;
  3. Adding more artwork, flowers, objects and accessories to boost the area you are focusing on. This is known to increase creativity and contentment;
  4. Tied up and organise. One of the best things to make your brain more focus is to have a tidy and organised environment, allowing them to only focus in one thing/ action/ task at the time.
