Replace withered or dying plants
Healthy plants exude vitality and enhance the good chi throughout your space. But withered or dying plants bring down your home’s energy. And let’s face it – they’re depressing to look at, too. Weber recommends “looking around at any plants that aren’t thriving. If your ivy has seen better days, replace it with a new, lush plant.”
Throw out items with negative associations
In feng shui, the goal is to promote your well-being by surrounding yourself with positive energy. Carter says that holding onto items that drudge up negative reminders every time you see them doesn’t contribute to the overall positive vibe of your home. So if you’re storing crutches from a skiing accident in the back of your closet, you should throw them out right away.

Relocate your desk
No, you shouldn’t get rid of your desk altogether, but you may need to move it. While seated at your desk, you want to be able to see the door and who is coming into the room. Moving your desk to a power position – one with an easy view of the door – can have a positive impact on how you feel about your work.
