Overview

People work harder and have more stress today than they have in decades. The demands of difficult jobs, long
commutes, and family combined with the need for adequate sleep, nutrition, exercise and relaxation can wear
out even the most energetic people. Alternative practitioners and gurus say that most people live their lives out
of balance and that the lack of balance can lead to all kinds of health problems.
It’s true that stress can cause serious problems. Doctors have found a correlation between excessive stress and
problems like heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure and other chronic problems like fibromyalgia or chronic
fatigue syndrome. Doctors often recommend to patients suffering from these problems that they take steps to
reduce the amount of stress in their lives by exercising, eating more nutritious foods and meditating or pursuing
hobbies that help them relax.
One method of dealing with stress and restoring balance that has become much more popular in the last decade
is the Chinese art of Feng Shui. Feng Shui can help improve your health by creating balance in your home, your
office, or just about anywhere. Practitioners of Feng Shui say that Feng Shui can be applied to every aspect of
your life including the style and décor of your home, where you put your furniture, what jewelry you wear, what
color clothing you wear, what type of car you drive, where you live, even what burial plot that you choose.
Even though Feng Shui has only been popular in the West for a decade or so it’s actually an ancient art and
science that was created thousands of years ago in China. The most basic principle of Feng Shui embodies the
Asian idea of perfect duality, the yin and the yang. Feng Shui is built upon the Taoist idea of balance and the
principles of Astronomy, which represents the Yin aspect and Geography which represents the Yang aspect. In
Chinese the characters for the name of Feng Shui translated literally mean the Tao of Heaven and Earth.
The principles of Feng Shui are also believed to effect personal relationships, the gathering of wealth, and other
areas in which people usually have imbalances that can cause negativity, depression, illness, and failure. To
Feng Shui believers the practice of Feng Shui as an everyday science is crucial to finding success in life whether
it’s in business or in relationships with friends and family.
