Spruce up your surroundings and improve your mood with these tips from from Feng Shui expert Ellen Whitehurst.

  • Go green. Having live plants around the house will help boost your mood and your oxygen levels.
  • Don't light up. Harsh overhead lighting creates shadows that can bring you down. Instead, flip on table lamps and wall sconces to set a welcoming scene that encourages positivity.
  • Clear the clutter. Taking a half our each month to sort through messy parts of your home helps give your mind a sense of order, too.
  • Raise your sights. Hanging your photos, pictures and paintings a little higher than eye level will literally boost your mood as well.
