Have you ever wondered how you can improve your well-being and opportunities simply by tweaking your environment?


Drawing on her background in feng shui and green design, and combining Buddhist and Taoist philosophies and environmental psychology, author and architect Anjie Cho presents 108 simple tips to modify our homes to maximise the positive potential in our lives.


While the book may seem, at first glance, as if it comprises only superstitious beliefs, it is essential to note that Cho actually meticulously couples her tips with explanations of the underlying rationale, showing how each advice is carefully thought through.


Today, we seem to adopt a worldview wholly based on scientific reasoning. This read will offer you fresh eyes to perceive your environment, and hopefully, an appreciation for a different approach to enhancing your well-being.
