Well, maybe it’s something that’s got to do with the clutter at the front of your door, the dirty laundry at the corner of the hallway, or the plants that need to be watered ASAP. That’s right, your mental well-being is connected to the well-being of your abode as well.
So, you’ve very smartly planned your entire day at work. And to your surprise, the entire day goes as planned.

What Is Feng Shui?
These two words translate into “wind-water.” It is an ancient Chinese geomancy or an auspicious arrangement of things. This art uses the energy forces to harmonize an individual and the surroundings
But, we understand that it’s a tough thing to decide on or learn from if you are new to the feng shui world. There are a zillion feng shui resources out there that leave you with an umpteen number of tips that you can incorporate in your homes to induce a harmonious environment. But not every tip is foolproof. We are calling ourselves your saviors as we’ve put up a list of 6 easy-peezy feng shui tips that can work on anyone.
1. Keep The Entry Spaces And The Doorways Clean And Clear
No one would like to deal with an obstacle placed right at the entrance of a door. You might actually end up thinking twice whether to enter the home or not after seeing a dirty doorway, right? C’mon, it’s the entrance to your home! So, make sure it’s neat and tidy.
Don’t clutter the entrance with too many decorations. The energy you derive or feel at the entrance will flow with you throughout the house.
2. Keep The Air Pure
Nothing can beat a well-ventilated house. But, what if your windows pave the path for the foul smell from outside? Let’s admit it – not every one of us is privileged to make homes in lush green environments. If you are living in a metropolitan city, you are exposed to harmful chemicals and substances, and you have no say in this. Don’t worry, you don’t have to live in the toxic environment all day. We can still purify the air in our homes.
Grow indoor plants that will aid in the purification of air. Or, make use of some essential oils or an air purifier. When you enter a sweet-smelling home, you’re bound to feel happy and calm
3. Let There Be Light
Walking in natural light is beneficial for health and mind. Similarly, a house that is lit with natural light tends to increase the energy levels of the residents by ten folds. Don’t cover the windows with the blinds in the morning.
Let the natural light enter your homes and make it glow. If there is any clutter on the window sills that is obstructing the light from entering, clean it away. Never live in a dark home. Let there be some light always.
4. Dust Off The Negative
Dust is bad! Both, for your health as well as for your state of mind. Accumulating dust in the corners of your home, on the shelves, on the furniture, or anywhere, blocks the positive energy from flowing into the house.
Make sure you make it a habit to clean your home on a regular basis and keep the negative energy at bay.
5.Sleep The Right Way
Feng shui recommends you position your bed in a manner that when you sleep your head should not be pointing towards the door. This is the right way to sleep peacefully. Another important thing to note is that if you are sharing your bed with your partner, never join two spring mattresses together.
This can cause turbulence in your relationship.
6. The Three Feet Rule For Furniture
Keeping a gap of three feet between all your furniture at home is the wisest arrangement, according to feng shui. This helps in the free flow of the energy between spaces in your house. And it will ease the atmosphere of the home. Imagine a home with crowded furniture, you will feel like you’re clinging on to one another while sitting on them.
Now, you can consider these feng shui tips that we’ve put forth and spread the word about them to your friends, family, and colleagues. Incorporate these changes and see for yourself the positive change in the atmosphere of the house. Have you followed any feng shui tips before? Did they work for you? We’d be delighted to know.
