To create a good Feng Shui foundation for a healthy home and family you have to begin with a few basic Feng Shui health practices.
1) During these times of sheltering in place and social distancing, many families are finding creative ways to exercise together; whether going on nature walks, bicycling, doing home exercise routines and yoga. Parents modeling these practices with their children are helping to create healthy inner Feng Shui.
2) One of the most effective practices is to create a clutter free space. Clutter drains your energy, which will effect your health and that of your entire family. Begin in the room most used by your family, or maybe where you plan to exercise together and give yourself the gift of a peaceful space without piles which create unnecessary stress in your life.
3) Surround yourself with good air quality. You may want to get an air purifier, essential oils or just open the windows if fresh air is available. Air purifying plants are a wonderful way to clear the air and bring the healthy aspects of the Wood element into your home; choose from Spider Plant, Boston Fern, Areca Palm, Snake Plant, Weeping Fig, Peace Lily or Bamboo Palm to name a few. Good air circulation leads to good Feng Shui.
4) Along with air circulation the body reacts better to sufficient natural light. Try to open those curtains to receive as much natural light as possible, because the quality of light adds to your health and well being. Also, be aware of the quality of light in your home and avoid florescent lights when possible.
With a few easy steps you can create a home environment that nourishes you and your family every day.
