Balance Your Space with Feng Shui

By Kat La Mantia | June 20 2023 | AdultsGeneralAllBlog

The ancient practice of feng shui has made it to TikTok, with room rearrangement videos that are oh so satisfying. Feng shui is all about balancing your space to optimize the flow of energy, which in turn creates a harmonious room that feels comfortable to spend time in. If something doesn’t feel quite right about your living room, it might be because the back of your couch is facing the entrance. If your bedroom doesn’t seem restful enough, your bed facing the door could be the culprit. The principles of feng shui can apply to any space: prioritizing connection in social spaces, health and rest in private spaces, and productivity in work spaces.

If you’re looking for a simple, no spend home refresh, feng shui offers a great way to work with what you already have to make your space feel entirely new. You don’t have to wait for the TikTok experts to answer your pleas. Check out some of our favorite feng shui titles below and find the balance you’ve been craving.
