Do This Now: Instant Feng Shui

5. Get Fresh
Create an energy-freshening ritual, whether it's opening windows and burning a beeswax candle or sprinkling some lavender in corners of your room. Both beeswax candles and sage bunches release negative ions when burned, clearing the air in a similar way to that of a rain shower. Negative ions have been shown to boost moods, positively affecting seratonin levels that increase well-being and calm, while lavender has historically been used to purify in a more ethereal sense (warding off bad vibes), though research has shown that its scent is indeed calming.
