Diwali celebrations are over and it’s time to eat sensibly. The aim of Feng Shui is to balance the energies by controlling our surrounding and food we eat. Here are Feng Shuisome points to keep in mind about healthy eating.

To develop more enthusiasm in your changing eating style, try sleeping with your head pointing south-east or east. Sleeping with the head pointing north-west will discipline helping you to stick to your diet programme.

Place bright green coloured items in the bedroom and plants and moving water features like an aquarium in the eastern area of your house to enhance the eastern Chi.

Kitchen garden is one of the most powerful way to invite the energy of earth into your environment. Even the smallest kitchen can keep a small pot of herbs like coriander, mint, lemon grass or curry patta on the windowsill. These bring vitality in your home.

Purchase fresh ingredients as processed food has stagnant Chi. Keeping bowl of fresh fruit can attract positive Chi into your kitchen.

Balance your meat and vegetables intake and be sure your meals include fresh vegetables. Meat alone is too yang and leads to health problems.

If you eat lots of hot and spicy foods, you are eating more yang than yin. If you eat lots of food that is grown underground, you are having more yin food.
