A reader asks, can Feng Shui help me lose weight?
The answer: a most emphatic YES 😉
Feng Shui is very closely connected to holistic health practices through its theory of the Five Elements, setting your space up to support your efforts to slim down and get healthy.
Give these Feng Shui weight-loss tips a try and let me know how they work for you.
Tip #1: The first thing you see when you enter your home sets your expectations.
- If your kitchen is the first thing you see – especially your stove or refrigerator – you’re likely to experience hunger pangs even if you’re not hungry.
Feng Shui Adjustment: diminish the impact of your kitchen view by screening the kitchen from view or creating a focal point that distracts your view of the kitchen when you come through the door.
Tip #2: A visually busy environment distracts you from your meal.
- When your kitchen is not set up as a serene environment you are far more likely to eat without paying sufficient attention to what you’re putting into your mouth.
Feng Shui Adjustment: Return your focus to the meals you prepare by clearing magnets and memos from the front of the refrigerator and removing unnecessary papers and other items from your kitchen.
Tip #3: Healthy Chi Energy avoids cluttered surfaces like overcrowded counter-tops.
- A cluttered counter-top also confuses your senses and creates yet another distraction from just how much you’re actually eating.
Feng Shui Adjustment: Bring order to your kitchen and attract healthy Chi by clearing the counters of everything but the items you use every day.
When you give Chi energy room to flow, the sense of clarity extends to the foods you consume. You’ll be more likely to prepare only what you need, when you need it.
