The low-down on feng shui: it’s an ancient philosophy developed over 3,000 years ago in China which focuses on the ‘balance’ of energy within a space. The idea is to harness the five elements – wood, fire, earth, metal and water – to fill your living space with positive energy and peace. So if you feel like the energy in your home is ‘stuck’, here are some practical tips that might help.
Bring nature in
Whether it’s a small succulent garden or an towering indoor plant, nature helps de-stress and aids in relaxation. Rocks from a favourite place, plants or water sources are all great feng shui for a room. A small plant of “Lucky bamboo” is excellent for a work desk (place in the East facing corner if possible).
