In Times of Insecurity and Worry... Find Comfort

During times of worry and insecurity:

  • Seek soothing yin energy '- choose flowing lines and soft, graceful forms.
  • Fill elegant crystal vases with blooming roses and other fragrant flowers.
  • Create cozy, comforting nooks with soft cushions and reassuring sunlight.
  • Combine warm, amber hues with deeply soothing shades of pink and rose.
  • Provide soft, diffused lighting.
  • Cover floors with colorful, woven rugs.
  • Develop a motif of repeated patterns and colors.
  • Display family photographs, paintings and treasured artifacts.
  • Store newspapers and magazines out of sight.
  • Remove televisions from bedrooms, kitchens and dining areas.
