UNA GUÍA CON MÚLTIPLES IDEAS PARA TRANSFORMAR NUESTRO HOGAR EN UN TEMPLO DE POSITIVIDAD EXTERIOR E INTERIOR. No hay nada como el hogar. De nosotros depende que sea como queremos. Y si bien es cierto que inevitablemente acaba siendo una manifestación de nuestra personalidad, también lo es que con una preparación adecuada, una estrategia relativa a los objetivos claros, tenacidad, rigor y buena voluntad, podemos cambiar el estilo del lugar donde vivimos. Y, al mismo tiempo, nos cambiaremos también un poco a nosotros mismos. El paraíso es tu casa habla precisamente de todo esto y de mucho más. Concebido como una guía, encontraremos en él información para saber qué dice de nosotros nuestro hogar; orientación sobre los cambios que podemos hacer para transformarlo a fin de obtener el mayor bienestar; las características de cada estancia para saber cuáles generan vitalidad, relajación o concentración e inspiración; consejos para sanar o mejorar nuestro estado de ánimo a través del sitio en que vivimos, con elementos tan sencillos como la luz, las plantas y los colores; técnicas para conseguir llenar de positividad nuestra vivienda; detalles prácticos sobre los mejores materiales para crear un hogar saludable; ideas para conseguir que en él reinen siempre la armonía y la tranquilidad. Aprovechando la sabiduría que emana de la tradición oriental, tanto china como japonesa, y la incorporación de numerosos consejos y estrategias que la cultura occidental nos ha legado, Diana Quan nos ayuda a convertir nuestra casa en un oasis de serenidad, buenas relaciones y creatividad. Los motivos que nos llevan a elegir un mobiliario en concreto, la forma en que ordenamos nuestros libros o las fotografías que escogemos para enmarcar son acciones ligadas a determinados modos de ser. Por eso, los detalles que forman parte de la decoración de una vivienda dicen mucho sobre sus dueños. Una habitación decorada con plantas y flores, por ejemplo, habla de una persona que ama la naturaleza; una en la que abundan los retratos indica que su propietario es una persona amistosa y familiar; mientras que si lo que encontramos son velas, sabremos que es el espacio de quien gusta de la calma y la intimidad. También los muebles dicen mucho de nosotros. Si son cómodos es porque nos gusta pasar tiempo en casa; si son funcionales significa que tenemos una mentalidad precavida y práctica, y si nos gustan clásicos seguramente somos algo conservadores. Por curioso que pueda parecer, incluso la iluminación revela aspectos de nuestra personalidad. Una vivienda con luz abundante estará habitada por una persona muy activa. Por el contrario, si tiene luces bajas y en las ventanas hay cortinas y persianas, será el hogar de un amante de la paz. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION A guide with many ideas for transforming our homes into temples of interior and exterior positivity. There’s no place like home. But it’s up to us to make them into what we want. And if it is true that they inevitably end up being a manifestation of our personalities, it’s also true that with preparation, a strategy aligned with our objectives, persistence, discipline, and willpower, we can change the style of the place where we live—and at the same time, we will change ourselves. Paradise Is Your Home discusses this and so much more. Drawing from the wisdom of Eastern traditions, both Chinese and Japanese, and the inclusion of advice and strategies from Western culture, Diana Quan helps you convert your home into an oasis of serenity, good relationships, and creativity.
