If you are fortunate enough to have outdoor space–whether it’s a small balcony, patio, or larger yard–it’s good to know that you can improve your ch’i (energy) by organizing and beautifying the exterior of your home. Often while concentrating on the inside of our home spaces we neglect to tend to the outside. Where to begin?
Take baby steps.
1) Begin with general maintenance and clean up. Rake up those leaves. Pick up those sticks. Organize and clean any objects that may be stored outside such as trash toters, garden tools, flower pots, barbecues, outdoor furniture.
2) Study the outdoor space and come up with a plan for improvement.
3) You can create a small potted garden or a wall garden or a windowbox or simply hang a planted basket. Take a moment to notice if your spirits feel brighter from just one simple addition of color or greenery.
4) If your budget allows, get your landscaping done by a professional.
