Feng Shui Tips for Health

Think about how you can make your surroundings pleasing to all six senses — sight, sound, touch, smell, taste, and intuition.

Use nature as a model by bringing the five natural elements of Chinese medicine — water, wood, fire, earth and metal — into your home to create balance and harmony.

Place your bed, desk, and stove in a commanding position (catty-corner from the door) so that you don’t waste energy subconsciously preparing for an interruption from behind.

Figure out your best direction — you can feel its support and positive influence. And spend time in your best direction whenever you can.

Become an active participant in your health care, not a victim of disease.

Consider yoga, acupuncture, meditation, chi kung (breathing), and other thoughtful routines as ways to encourage and direct your body’s chi.
