The Chinese New Year is January 26th, the year of the OX.  Since Feng Shui is based on Chinese philosophy, I'd like to share some easy, fun and simple ways to start your New Year off right.

Bring in health, wealth, success and happiness with these 9 tips:

 

1- Now is the perfect time to define your objectives and goals for the New Year. A great way to do that is by using a VISION BOARD. On it, you can list the things you want to attract to your life with images, photos and words, plus reset your goals and involve the universe.

2- De- clutter and reorganize your home and office. You will feel better and that will help your focus. By emptying your closets and cabinets you will enable fresh new energy and opportunities to flow to you.   

Donate and give away to thrift shops, charities and neighborhood organizations. Or sell your old things on Ebay or Craigslist and donate the money.

3- Get your health checked. It is a great time to go visit your family doctor to start the year healthy and full of energy. Toss out old medicines and renew prescriptions.

4- Shop with abandon. Ensure your refrigerator, pantry, canisters, shakers are all full for this New Year. This represents abundance for the year ahead.

5- Review your contact list and ensure it is updated for professional and personal matters, with current phone numbers and addresses. Reach out to people you love to wish them a good New Year.

6- Respect the money in your wallet... and your wallet. Make sure it is not worn out or tattered. By keeping it full, It symbolizes having enough money all year long.

7- Get a new green plant or blooming flowers. They represent rebirth and growth for the New Year. They also symbolize health  for you and your family. 

8- Make time to dream big. Prepare where you want to go this year, your travels, your vacations, your career changes, even new classes you want to take.  

Live Well, Be Well, Work Well.

 Victoria and David Beckham have turned to Buddhism.

The couple - who live in Los Angeles with their three sons - have reportedly "embraced" the mystical religion and are now chanting every morning in a bid to help them deal with their hectic lifestyles.

A source said: "David and Victoria have gone completely Californian! David has begun wearing health, prosperity and performance beads around his wrist. He has started yoga and stretching classes after a knee injury, and then a teammate suggested Buddhist chanting to soothe his mind.

"Now he and Victoria do a short five-minute chant when they wake up to start the day off on the right foot, repeating, 'Homage to the blessed one, the worthy one, the rightly self-awakened one.' "

Former Spice Girls star Victoria, 34, has also reportedly incorporated holistic eating into her diet plan.

The source added to Britain's Look magazine: "David and Victoria are really getting into the whole holistic, healthy vibe too. Victoria often picks up a soya latte at an organic cafe called Urth Caffe, which is next to The Bodhi Tree bookstore, where she bought hundreds of dollars' worth of self-help books."

The pair have are even said to have employed a Feng Shui expert to ensure their mansion is appropriately arranged.

The source revealed:  " They have had Chinese Feng Shui experts come in to rearrange their home, hop[ing] it will improve David's luck on the soccer pitch and their chances of conceiving. They have turned into the ultimate hippy power couple!"
