Deciding on accessories might be interesting. Pretty flowers and fancy ornaments won’t bring anything to your home gym. This is a space created for working on your physical strength and appearance, not meant to be quiet and serene to work on your spiritual strength. When decorating remember the room’s purpose should be able to help with ideas for accessories. Clocks make nice additions. When working out people are constantly timing themselves and their progress. A good stereo system might be good to consider. Listening to music, loud lively music, helps set the mood when exercising. A television is a must in your home gym. Watching your favourite television program is a great distraction when you are using stationary exercise equipment. You get all caught up in the program and before you realize it, you’ve peddled the exercise bike for thirty-five minutes.

Feng Shui Interior Design

feng shui

Translated to English, Feng Shui roughly means wind-water.

Feng Shui is essentially the art of arranging objects to achieve harmony in the surrounding environment.  Not only is Feng Shui used in interior design, it is
used in choosing a place to live, a burial spot and agricultural planning.

It is highly believed that Feng Shui has an effect on health, wealth and personal relationships. Feng Shui is a traditional Chinese practice.  Early Feng Shui interior design relied on astronomy to find the symmetry between humans and the universe.

The early Chinese often used the celestial poles determined by the pole stars to determine the north and south. Feng Shui instruments dating back to 278 and 209 BC have been unearthed from tombs.

As practiced today, the goal of Feng Shui is to situate the human designed environment on spots with good qi.  Spots are determined by an axis in time. Feng Shui teaches that areas that are not suitable for human settlement should be left in their natural state.

Qi, pronounced Chi, literally means air. In Fung Shui, Qi is the flow of energy and may be based on a form of solar energy.  Polarity in feng shui is known as ying and yang.

This is the absolute balance between two entities. It is the good and the bad, the living and the dead, and is one of the key principals behind Feng Shui interior
design.  Most Westerners knew nothing about Feng Shui until 1972 when Richard Nixon visited The People’s Republic of China. New Age by western entrepreneurs then reinvented Feng Shui.
