Ahhhh, spring. More and more of us are scheduling our yearly vacations around the time now ubiquitously known as 'Spring Break,' with our bank accounts often getting broken in the planning process. To make sure every dollar spent is a worthy one -- and to make absolutely sure you get your money's worth during every fun-filled hour -- try the following travel Shui tips. Then rest, relax and be sure to drop a line while you're zipping through the 'Fast Pass' line.
All these travel advisories are concerned with with what to do before you leave, so that when you get back you can claim that this was one of the best trips ever!
The first rule is this: If you don't want to encounter any chaos along your journey, then definitely don't leave any behind. Feng Shui says that if you leave your space a disaster, that's exactly the kind of energy you'll meet along your way -- because no matter where you go, there you are. If you don't want any problems with airline connections or hotel reservations, and you want everything under the Fort Lauderdale sun to run smooth as silk, then leave your living space clean and clutter-free. I guarantee this will more than adequately describe your travels as well.
This next tip is so practical and powerful, you'll think it's almost sophomoric. But I can't tell you how many times I speak to clients who've had a terrible trip ... and then when I ask if they prepared for a safe and cozy return, they admit they didn't have the time or forgot -- or, worst of all, they blame it on somebody else!
With apologies to the Las Vegas Tourism Board, I have to remind you that what happens in your space, stays in your space -- right before it spills over into every aspect of your life. So make completely sure that before you leave, prepare for your return. Clean out the fridge, give away or get rid of old food that's about to turn bad, empty all trash cans in the house and leave fresh, clean bedding to climb into upon safely returning home. You'll also want to leave some cabinets stocked with easily prepared food to create a feeling of abundance upon your arrival home -- and to save you from that late night trip to the grocery store.
Lastly, ask a trusted loved one to come over the day of your return and open all blinds or drapes, crack open some windows and flush all the toilets in the house. Have them turn on some inside and outside lighting as well so you're welcomed home into a properly lit environment.
If you can put these ideas in place before you go, ol' Dorothy and her shiny ruby slips won't have nothing on you. Because when you use these travel Shui tips, you really will find that there's no place like home.
