As new challenges unravel, approach 2022 with the fierce boldness of a tiger doubled by luck by donning the fortifying colors of the year such as fiery red, yellow, green, blue, and Veri Peri, all balanced by white and gold. Spread positivity by also moving forward with renewed confidence as you reorganize your space to awaken optimism for the year ahead.
Reposition your space to invite good energy
Start the year strong and invite good energy into your home by decluttering the entryway and keeping it brightly lit. You can begin by organizing small items like keys with Orbitkey’s Sage Leather organizer. Trusty and handy, it can hold up to seven keys in a slim and quiet profile. Also make sure coins, receipts, small notes, and such aren’t cluttered around otherwise it can counter productivity and focus. Associate your style with the tiger’s active energy and keep your essentials secured anywhere you go with Montblanc’s M_Gram 4810 Belt Bag.
Keep your home safe and healthy by balancing energy throughout all the rooms. Give your bedroom a clean and organized look with Modbed Sienna Platform Bed Frame and top it off with a comfortable mattress from Serta. Make sure to place your bed within eyesight from the bedroom door. This commanding position allows you to feel calmer due to better awareness of your surroundings.
