Can I Feng Shui My Way to Better Mental Health?

An ancient Chinese practice, Feng Shui has taken modern life by storm. People who love Feng Shui claim it can promote positive energy flow in a person’s home and internally, as well. Modern practitioners of the ancient system tie the positive energy flow to enhanced productivity, less stress, and better mental health. Sceptics may not be quite so sure and doubt the impact on mental health. Find out what the implications are for you should you choose to Feng Shui your life.

Balm for the Soul

The idea of Feng Shui is based on promotion of harmony, peace, and positive energy. Recognition that life doesn’t always work in accordance with those principles, Feng Shui can be thought of as a way to cleanse your life. Through proper alignment of life spaces using Feng Shui, you can supposedly rid yourself of life’s stresses, be more productive, and find happiness. Many practitioners search out ‘environmental pollutants,’ as they seek to realign spaces. By removing ‘pollutants,’ practitioners promise to provide a space where there are no barriers to accomplishing good work without distractions and electromagnetic fields getting in the way.

Placebo Effect

By placing Feng Shui into your life and home, it is believed it will place a barrier between your space and the rest of the world. Generally, scientific literature is hesitant to validate these claims, but there are other studies which demonstrate the positive impact of using Feng Shui. Some benefits include:

  • Bringing more natural light into home or work spaces can increase productivity
  • Letting go of clutter can increase mental health and lower depression
  • Plants can enhance spaces and caring for them may improve mental health

Whether this is placebo effect or actual benefits, Feng Shui can be a quick fix to what ails your work or living space.

Reaping Rewards

With Feng Shui changes in place, you can have the opportunity to reap the rewards of positive energy flow long after implementation. Simply put, changes now can have long term impact. More productivity, less clutter, and distraction can be a great thing for your well-being and recovery. If you are struggling with addiction, it can be a great way to build a better space for yourself to have clarity and peace of mind to focus on getting healthy. Having a clean space can boost positive mental health and lower overall stress, so why not at least give it a try.
