Feng Shui for Stress and Anxiety
Updated: Jan 16, 2022
In today's world stress and anxiety has become very common. However, we can make e another choice. Stress can weaken the body's energy and trigger the sympathetic system. Easing anxiety can be helped through the creation of a nurturing, restorative home environment.
So how can you tell in your home environment that you are experiencing stress and anxiety?
Visually your home may appear chaotic, cluttered and energetically blocked. In addition here are some things (not all) to look for:
Cold and uninviting bedroom
Bedroom with a home office
Projects unfinished everywhere
Low or poor lighting
Dark colors all over
TV time takes over the energy in the main living area.
TV located in the Health & Family areas of the home
Here are some Feng Shui Solutions:
Create a calm, clear and open space in your home.
