Simple Feng Shui Tips for Staying Positive

  Feel Good Colors

These days it is easy to feel overwhelmed and depressed. One of the best ways to improve mood is to make some changes in your space. Bright colors such as green, red and purple radiate positive energy so choose bed linens, curtains, frames and other decorative objects in these colors to surround yourself in more of this energy. Bright green will be most effective in the east, southeast and south of your home, whereas reddish purple will work best in the south, southwest and northeast areas.

Placing a water feature in the east of your home will increase the energetic qi here while boosting confidence. It is an energy all about making things happen in life. Spend time in this direction in your home as well as the southeast and south portents. These directions are very yang and help to balance the overly yin aspect of depression.

Incorporating more yang foods into your diet will also be effective by eating more grains and hot vegetables, and less cold meals and sugary foods. Keep rooms clutter-free,well ventilated with a natural light source to also wake up stagnant energy.

Once you are feeling more energetic think about starting an exercise routine. This is a perfect time of the year to power walk or run. If you are looking for something a bit more low key try a gentle yoga class or perhaps a Zumba class to add a little spice to your life.

It's easy to adopt a positive attitude when your space and body feel energized. This spring give yourself permission to change things up a bit and discover how good it feels.
