No celebrity could be more “high maintenance” than Paris Hilton.
Watching Paris–the girl who has everything– on the
“The Simple Life” struggle to comprehend what having less
of everything is like for the common folk was hilarious. What the show
didn’t really convey, however, is that there are some advantages
to having less material things around to deal with.
In Feng Shui terms, less is more. Less clutter translates to more
room for opportunity to come in. Having less ‘stuff’ also means
having less things to worry about . The less we worry, the less
stress we have in our lives. Just as it’s crucial to keep up with
our own health, it’s important to keep our ‘stuff’ in good working
order to maintain the health of our Feng Shui.
Ever notice how things seem to break down all at once? Light bulbs,
smoke detector batteries, computers, printers, fax machines, cars…
as soon as you find out you have one thing to replace or repair, another one crops up almost simultaneously. As a rule, good Feng Shui dependson having things in tip-top shape. If you have a broken clock or watch, for example, this is very symbolic of opportunities frozen in time. Many people have antique clocks in their homes that are no longer working. The solution is to get them tick-tocking again a.s.a.p.
FENG SHUI MAINTENANCE CHECKLIST:
1. Look for any broken items around your home and office.
Take them in to be fixed or toss ‘em and get new ones.
2. Surround yourself with things that you truly love. If you have any negative feelings towards furniture and equipment in your office, replace them whenever possible.
3. Backup your computer data and delete junk files regularly for
clutter-free efficiency. Get memory upgrades to handle your workload.
4. Keep a replenishable supply of light bulbs, batteries, and printer inks, handy.
5. Maintaining your auto should be automatic: check tires, wipers, oil each month.
6. Take care of your eyes, teeth, and body. Schedule doctor
appointments 6 months in advance. You’re worth it,
and as Paris says, “That’s hot!”.
