1. Open the windows at least once a day for 5 minutes. This lets out any stagnant chi allowing fresh clean energy in.
2. Use curtains and blinds in the right measure. Direct sunlight during summer can be uncomfortable so try and make sure that the room isn’t too bright. Create a good balance of yin and yang chi by using thicker curtains and blinds to block any direct sunshine during the hottest hours. If the living room is naturally dark keep curtains to a minimum to let more natural light in.
3. How the furniture is arranged is essential to how the energy circulates around the room. You should be able to move around the living room in an easy manner, beneficial to you or any guests. Clearing access to the seating area helps chi arrive well. Consider placing sofas and armchairs in a square setting to encourage conversation.
4. Clear any clutter that may be accumulating especially in corners. It is difficult to relax with clutter around as it encourages the build up of stagnant chi. One of the most common problems that stops fresh chi flowing is piles of magazines and newspapers. Recycle the ones you won’t read again and put the others in simple storage solutions such as boxes or cupboards.
5. You can use plants and fresh flowers in corners to enhance live yang energy where the chi builds up the most. Plants help to keep fresh air circulating.
6. Too many patterns and strong colours can be tiring. If they are used in a living room with young children you will find that they don’t sit still. Try and keep décor and patterns to softer schemes to encourage relaxation.
7. Try and avoid placing your favourite sofa or armchair with its back to the living room door. You won’t feel comfortable sitting there for long periods.
8. Consider the location of the room when deciding colour schemes. Northerly rooms need warm colours whereas southern rooms would be more relaxing with a cooler palate.
9. Avoid sitting under beams as they can cause headaches and body aches. Place any seating away from overhead beams.
