Feng Shui Tips for the Urban "Renterati"!
Are you a young professional, who is ambitious and hence always on the move looking out for good opportunities, changing homes every once in a while? Then, this article is for you. We share Feng Shui tips for the urban "renterati" – a term for people who stay in rented houses.
So, the struggle is, you are always moving houses, cities and sometimes even countries. With so much going on in life already, you have very little time to apply Feng Shui to your home. But this practical guide shows you how to benefit from Feng Shui, while setting up the ever-changing house. Right from the furnishings to the décor, here are some tricks you can follow.
The secret really is in the way you arrange objects around the home. The key aspect is seeking balance, (between yin and yang) despite constant change. There's an ideal place for every object (books, TV, lamps, furniture, etc.).
When the laundry is the only thing permanent in your life, how do you achieve a Zen space? Let's start with the bedroom, a space where you spend most of your time. The most important object in here is the bed. When placed properly, the bed can provide security and better sleep, resulting in good health. The ideal way to place a bed is diagonally opposite the door. You should have your head against something solid, like a wall.
Next is the young professional's second most used entity - the desk. Don't let less space determine the location of your desk. Make sure you never keep it in the bedroom. A desk is one of the most powerful objects that shape your growth. Position the desk diagonally opposite from the door. This gives an imperious view of the room, allowing clarity in thinking. When you study, make sure you are not showing your back to the door or against a large window (both are distracting).
Another important aspect of urban living is the electronics. Electronics emit energy and currents that can be distracting, especially while sleeping. So make sure you don't have too many in your bedroom. The ones that you can't absolutely avoid - keep at a distance of two feet from the bed.
With this simple list of object placement, you can achieve a more peaceful and positive space that will contribute towards your growth and also make shifting much easier!
