  • Our living environment can have a significant impact on our emotional well-being and can
    re-traumatize us if it is not supportive.
  • Assessing our living space and paying attention to our body’s response can help us identify
    areas that need improvement.
  • Feng shui is not just about arranging furniture or tidying up; it is a practice that aims to create
    balance and harmony in our living environment.
  • Design psychology and color design play a role in creating a supportive space, and
    incorporating elements like water and fire can enhance the energy flow.
  • Taking small steps, such as decluttering and incorporating elements that support our needs,
    can make a positive difference in our living environment.
