How happy are you in your space?

“While being happy is a common aim that people say that they have in life, not everyone knows why it is important to be happy.” –Benjamin Bonetti,

Studies have shown that happier people not only live healthier, but longer.

Work or home? Creating a space that inspires and makes you happy is one of the things to consider, and revitalizing your space with a little Feng Shui is one of the best ways to do this.

Although literally translating to wind-water in English language, Feng Shui is a Chinese philosophical system of harmonizing everyone with the surrounding environment.

Easy steps to improving the feng shui in your space

  1. The cleanse – Just as it is important to detoxify your body at the beginning of a healthy eating journey, it is also important to “detoxify” your surrounding on your journey to living in a happier space.

It is important that you get rid of items or objects in your surroundings that you do not like or makes you unhappy.

  1. Good Air – he importance of cross-ventilation in buildings is often neglected. But this is a mistake. Air conditioners and fans are great, but nothing beats natural breeze.

Wind ventilation is great for removing heat and other pollutants and facilitating air movement to enhance thermal comfort.

Not only does it use fresh air to cool your house, it also prevents mould from growing in it. When done properly cross-ventilation can minimise or even eliminate the need for air-con, which means all that fresh air can also save you a lot of money.


  1. Good l natural light – Natural lighting is very important. If you have a space with inadequate windows, look for ways to compensate for small windows: e.g place mirrors on walls opposite to windows, so that they’d reflect daylight and create a brighter space.

It has been proven that adequate lighting in offices makes workers more efficient and make fewer mistakes. In fact, good lighting can decrease errors of workers by 30-60%.

In homes, good lighting does not only help with the fung shui, but can reduce risks of domestic accidents. Now that’s what we call killing two birds with one stone.
