Insect Protection

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

With the onset of warm weather, remember that this is when the insects are breeding. If there are places on your property that have standing water, mosquitoes can breed there. Watch carefully for ticks…they are tiny but can deliver Lyme disease. Check your pets carefully after they have been outdoors. Use a fine toothed comb to go through long haired animals. Make sure your pets have flea and tick medicine at all times, not just in the summer. If you or your pet pick up a tick, remove all of it carefully with tweezers and take it to be tested. Check your insect repellent for tick protection and in the woods wear clothing to cover exposed skin.

An ounce of protection is worth a pound of cure.

Garage Sale

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009

Yes, you can even apply Feng Shui to your garage sale. Setting up your tables; arranging the way items are laid out; positioning yourself to see everything and to be helpful to customers; arranging items by color, texture, and function; and even cleaning, polishing, and minor repairs that will show items in their best light. Lots of colorful signs, balloons, or flags also help to catch the attention of passers-by.

I can help you make the most of your garage sale…just ask!

Seeking Better Sleep II

Monday, April 6th, 2009

The latest research shows two important factors that affect your sleep. First, there must be total darkness. Even the illuminated numbers on the clock willcause a part of your brain to stay awake and alert! Also, the room should be at least 5 degrees cooler that the rest of the house. The body produces melatonin when it is cooler, which helps you sleep better.

Add these two factors to the Feng Shui rules of the bedroom and you will sleep a deep and healthy sleep. If you are new to Feng Shui, here are the rules: 1. No TV in the bedroom! 2. No computer in the bedroom! 3. Little or no books in the bedroom! 4. No mirrors that can be seen from the bed! 5. No ceiling fan hanging over the bed! 6. No bathroom opening directly into the bedroom!

If any of these are a problem in your home, and you aren’t getting the quality of sleep you desire, call me and I can help you solve the problem.

Good sleep is good Feng Shui!
