Lift your Spirits when you Come Home

In this next series of blogs, I’ll be addressing some frequently asked questions I have heard over the many years I have been a Feng Shui consultant.  I hope you find them interesting!

Q. I know that Feng Shui is supposed to make me feel better about my house, but when I drive up to my home, I feel depressed.  I can’t afford to make a lot of changes, what can I do?  

A. That’s an easy one. 

Plant some flowers or add pots of flowers where you can see them when you get close to your house.  Rutger’s University did a study that revealed that people actually release endorphins and their moods improve when they see flowers.

Think about it…what do you give someone to cheer them up or make them feel better?  That’s right…flowers! 

 Go to the garden store and ask what flowers would do the best in your location (last the longest, attract the least amount of pests, are easy to care for, etc.), and then either plant them in your yard or place them in pots near your front door.

If you live in a cold climate and flowers aren’t an option for you right now, then opt for pretty colored pots with evergreens and berries. The greenery will promote a feeling of vitality and the color on the pots will break up the monotony of the dreary colors of winter. 

In addition to flowers, be sure to fix, paint, remove or repair anything that bothers you about the front of your home.  Things that need to be done and haven’t been attended to can make us feel depressed and tired.  Instead of feeling that way every day, quit procrastinating and get to it.  You will be amazed at how much better you feel when you come home!
