Back to School Feng Shui
Every school year parents and students dutifully trudge through the malls in search of the perfect sneaker or the cool new outfit for the coming school year. However, it's unlikely that the new shoe or shirt will benefit them as much as a new design in the bedroom. That's because a bedroom makeover will create new interest and energy - what feng shui calls "chi" - in the bedroom that will benefit a child.
What does it take to promote greater success in school? According to feng shui, the following seven tips are key to creating rooms that inspire kids to study.
1. The room has a desk.
2. Ground your kids.
3. Create an achievement corner.
5. Put your child in the command position.
6. Display maps and other educational artwork.
7. Eliminate TV from the bedroom.
8. Shells and fish are symbols of education.
