During the holidays it’s easy to feel out of balance, not least because your environment changes in such an extreme way.
At this intense time of year, you need good Feng Shui to see you through.
All year long, you strive to balance your feelings of serenity and vitality, when suddenly the holidays arrive with their attendant decorating needs.
Shiny ornaments, piles of gifts and holiday cards, sparkly lights and brilliant colors: how can you integrate all this “big energy” while maintaining your sense of balance?
Here are some key ways to create good Feng Shui in your space during — and in spite of! — the holidays.
1. Remember the principles of Yin & Yang: as the public areas of your home become more sparkly and bright, keep more private areas, like your bedroom, quiet and serene.
It’s not necessary to decorate every square inch of your home, nor do you have to use every ornament you own!
Consider leaving some decor in the box this year, and give your eye a place to rest. You and your guests will appreciate having some breathing room in the midst of the surrounding festivities.
2. Set a warm and festive tone by lavishing special attention on your Entryway. A well-lit, fabulously decorated foyer will welcome guests — and auspicious Chi energy — in style.
Once you’ve welcomed your guests with holiday cheer, feel free to use a lighter touch in decorating the rest of your home.
3. Schedule some quiet time to simply sit and enjoy the beauty of the season. Light the lights, make yourself a lovely snack, take a deep breath. Ahhhhh!
How are you planning to keep your Chi in balance over the next few weeks?
