Principle 8: Work on Yourself as Well as Your Home
If you don’t take care of yourself — emotionally as well as physically — it will be harder to experience and appreciate the benefits of feng shui.
Feng shui is sometimes called “acupuncture for the home” because it opens, adjusts and balances the flow of chi through a space. I encourage you to explore ways to open, adjust and balance your own personal chi as well. All of the feng shui changes that you make to your home will be more effective if you are as healthy and vibrantly alive as possible.
How much good will feng shui do if you are too stressed, tired, or just plain cranky to follow up on opportunities or make a good impression on the people you meet? If you are committed to turning your life around, be sure to include self-care and renewal as part of your overall feng shui strategy!
