Greetings to all who share the wisdom of feng shui!
Back to School!
In many households, domestic activity centers on getting ready to go back to school. This is true for kids but also for many adults. The laisser-faire of summer fun needs to tighten up into organized patterns of a more structured lifestyle. It is best to support this mind-set with the physical attributes of a well-organized environment.
Feng shui tips are handy tools for shifting gear from outdoor fun to indoor focus, specifically “back-to-school” mode. Check your ba gua, i.e. your floor plan, to answer these questions:
- Is there a designated space for study or homework? Or is everybody roaming around the house toting their laptops and tablets?
- If you have a study area, what are the images on the wall? Uplifting? Depressing?
- Is your back to the door? Can you see who enters? What is in your visual field?
- Are there visual and auditory distractions? TV? Radio? Street noise?
- Are supplies organized and accessible? Pens? Paper? Printer? Thumb drives?
Start implementing our feng shui tips and enhance your back-to-school environment:
- Ideally, create a study area in a quiet location. Put a felt pad under your electronics to reduce EMFs.
- Introduce classical music during study periods. The “Mozart” effect doesn’t just entice cows to produce more milk, but will positively improve concentration and mental output.
- If noise pollution is too distracting, create an island of silence with a pair of noise-blocking ear phones.
- Set up your study area in the power position and feel like you’re in control of your task.
- Brighten your study area with a brilliant light. Create a yang ambiance.
- If mental chatter interferes, collect your thoughts with a strong focal point, e.g. a sphere or a spiral. Collect and combine wires in a basket.
- A bouquet of yellow flowers in a crystal vase will also support mental clarity.
- Set a timer, work in increments, and take a break. Refresh your energy flow with a glass of water to rinse away mental clutter.
- Munch on fruit or a power bar to nourish the brain.
Your back-to-school mode transposes easily to any kind of transition from vacation mode to “getting-things-done” motivation. If you minimize interruptions and distractions, energy – instead of dissipating – will channel your strengths toward those projects that need prioritizing.
