Quality Air and Light
Air and light are the two vital elements of life. However, with pollution all over the place you can’t just rely on environmental air for leading a healthy life. For living under fresh air in this polluted environment, you must place some indoor plants in your space which will work as an air purifier. Don’t forget to keep the doors and windows open for letting in some natural light and air too.
Basic Elements of Feng Shui
To make the most of Feng Shui system, it’s important to understand the significance of the five elements, i.e. fire, earth, metal, water, and wood. Each element has its own significance and purpose. For example, to bring wealth and prosperity to your home, you should place wood and water, such as plants, wooden furniture, water fountain etc. in the South-East corner of your space.
