Dining Room Feng Shui

Guest Author - Lisa Shea

It's funny how people seem to be moving away from eating in a dining room. Most couples I know eat their meals in front of the TV. Reclaim your dining room! Here are ways to enhance the feng shui of this important area.

Eating mindfully is key to good health. When one eats in front of a TV, they are more likely to overeat and to eat unhealthy foods. By paying attention to what you eat, and eating slowly, you help your digestion and your healthy eating habits.

Make sure your dining room is full of clutter. Dining rooms can attract piles of stuff for some reason! Clear it all out. Make the room clean, clear, and fresh. Flowers are traditional in dining rooms, and can add a lightness to the atmosphere.

Make sure there is ample room around the table for everyone to get in and out. That will help encourage people to use the dining room for its intended purpose.

A key to healthy eating is to eat slowly. Have your room help encourage this. Use soothing colors, lights that are bright enough without being glaring, and if you play music, use slow music. Candles can be a lovely touch.

Many times families have a variety of special plateware and other items that sit in boxes for decades without ever being touched. Designate at least one day a month as being a special day, and bring it out. Yes, items might get chipped or dented. That is OK. The items were meant to be used. If you never intend to use them, then sell them and use the money for something else more useful.

Finally, I highly recommend giving thanks before each meal. Give thanks to the world which brought you the food, the farmers who grew it, and everyone else who helped to bring it to your table.
