My latest article on the Feng Shui site at BellaOnline.com is "Feng Shui Help for ADHD." It’s estimated that millions adults and children suffer from ADHD, which is characterized by difficulty following directions, remembering information, concentrating, and organizing tasks. If you, your children, or a friend have been diagnosed with ADHD, read about the Feng Shui changes you can make in a home to help cope.
The basic Feng Shui principle of eliminating chaos and creating balance is the key aspect of providing a supportive environment for a child or adult with ADHD. The things that help the most are all part of Feng Shui, like avoiding clutter, creating calming spaces to retreat to when the overload strikes, and making the energy flow from room to room. When it comes to Feng Shui help for ADHD, “less is best” because when you suffer from ADHD, surrounding yourself with too many things means too much visual stimuli.
Some of the specific things you can do include removing electronics from the bedroom, painting in earthy colors, removing a desk and anything work related from the bedroom, using aromatherapy, and choosing your artwork carefully.
