Make your hotel or  vacation stay wonderful with these Easy tips!

You may have heard of using FENG SHUI  to design a home, but did you know its principles can also be used to promote a positive flow of energy during your vacation or business trip?

FENG SHUI  IS AN  ANCIENT CHINESE ART USED TO CREATE ABUNDANCE, HEALTH, HAPPINESS, AND WEALTH. USING THESE FENG SHUI TIPS CAN MAKE YOUR VACATION STAY MORE RELAXING AND YOUR BUSINESS TRIP MORE EFFECTIVE.

1- Open the windows when you first walk in to let fresh air into the room. Getting the air moving is a great way to clear any stagnant “Chi” or “energy" left by the previous occupants.

2- Unpack your luggage right away and keep it out of site. This will promote a more settled feeling inside the room. And will let you start focusing on the activities you want to do and not the length of your stay.

3-  Take a hot shower to allow the hot water to flow good Chi energy onto you. Using a lavender soap can also chase away any built up stress or tension gathered during your trip.

4- Display photos of your family on the night stand. This will make you feel comfortable and keep you in connection with your loved ones.

5-Bringing your own scented candles and burning them while you are in the room can induce calmness and serenity through aromatherapy. You can also use incense. This will soothe your psyche and bring a feeling of relaxation.

6- In Feng Shui, bathrooms are associated with financial loss. Be sure to keep the bathroom door closed at all times to prevent this especially on a business trip.

7- Display some scarves or fabrics you love to brighten up your hotel room and bring a bit of your personality in. Having a red shawl or red piece of fabric with you is also a great way to bring a very auspicious outcome to your transactions if you are on a business trip. Red is the luckiest color in Feng Shui.

8- Hang a scarf over the TV, any mirror facing your bed or images that are not pleasing to you. This will help you have a restful sleep and cut down on the reflective surfaces in the room.

9- Move the phone and alarm clock away from your ears while you sleep by putting them on the floor. This will ensure you are not abruptly awakened.

10- Bring herbal tea with you. Most hotels offer a coffee pot, you can use this to heat water and settle in each night with a cup of hot tea. While curled up with your tea, take a few moments to meditate on the sights, sounds, and tastes of the day.
