simple shui tip: let there be light!

persistent lack of light in a home can trigger sadness and / or enhance anxiety, while exposure to natural light improves both productivity and performance.

so, if your space (or office) lacks windows, here are a few ways to remedy the natural light deficit:

TIP ONE: use vibrant colors in the décor. paint the room a light color, go for bright artwork, or hang a vibrant tapestry on the wall.

TIP TWO: introduce the element Metal in the space. add pops of white, bring in metallic accents (to reflect the light available), or keep a few crystals on your desk.

TIP THREE: spice the space with invigorating scents, like eucalyptus, peppermint, lemon, or orange essential oils.

TIP FOUR: supplement the room with artificial light. lamps or imagery of the sun will perk your office up, too!

TIP FIVE: play with incandescent bulbs when the room needs warming up. these radiate a soft orange glow. and when self-motivation is weak, halogen bulbs give out yang energy – an excellent pick-me-up!
