DAY 352: Color Therapy

color

“Light and its constituent colors have a strong effect on both body and mind whether we realize or not. We always respond to color at all the levels: mental, emotional and physical.

The  red end of the spectrum tends to make our body tense and an excessive exposure to red increases blood pressure. On the contrary, blue relaxes our body and lowers blood pressure. When we see a red room, it appears smaller than a blue one. Emotionally, red excites us whereas blue calms us.

Of all the colors, red and blue light have the most significant and marked effect on our body. Red light increases blood pressure, respiration, muscular activity and heart rate. Blue has an exactly opposite effect, relaxes the body, calms and soothes the mind and helps insomnia sufferers. Exposure to blue light over the whole body has long been a cure for children with jaundice.

Our general health and well-being is affected by too much and too little light. People who do not get adequate light because they spend too much time indoors in artificial light, which does not provide the full spectrum found in the natural daylight or because they live in latitudes where the sun is absent for long periods during winter, are prone to the ‘winter blues’. On the other hand, excessive exposure to light speeds development and can even induce an ageing effect.”

DAY 351: Feng Shui

office_feng_shui“In Feng Shui, the application of the concept of Yin and Yang brings harmony, balance and good future.

If the Yin and Yang are not balanced in your home and workplace, their imbalance can cause physical, mental and emotional problems. Very dark rooms can cause depression and fatigue. On the other hand, extremely bright rooms can cause headache.

Feng Shuing your house should be simple. Feng Shui is the art and science of living in harmony with nature. By living in harmony with our environment, we can harness the beneficial energies known as ‘Chi’ to promote prosperity and vitality.

Chi (Pronounced Chi) is described as the air we breathe, Earth’s magnetic field, cosmic radiation, sunlight, spirit, our luck. Chi means all this and much more. Chi is ‘Life’s Breath’. To Japanese Chi is ‘Ki’, to Hindus Chi is ‘Prana’ and ‘Ankh’ to Egyptians.

The concept of Chi is known to all cultures. Chi governs our health, wealth and happiness. Feng Shui harnesses the positive aspects of Chi for our holistic well-being. Chi rides the wind (Feng) and is retained in water (Shui). Feng Shui enables us to harness the Chi of our living places like home and offices.”
