Ding-dong or knock-knock?
How your doorbell can add to your joy
You know I always say that feng shui is all about creating spaces that feel good, right?
And sometimes that means (or quite often, actually!) to pay attention to the seemingly super small details – those things we hardly even ever think of, but still, live with every day.
Like your doorbell.
Which, believe it or not, greatly can affect your mood.
Here’s why and how to find the perfect one for you.
The sound of your doorbell sets the tone
(excuse the pun…)
Once, I lived in a place that had a doorbell that totally stressed me out – like, c o m p l e t e l y.
It was annoying and extremely loud, with a harsh sound that called upon my attention in a not-very-nice-way.
So, when opening the door, I had an elevated heartbeat and felt like… disturbed.
Not the best state to be in when greeting someone to your place…
Much better to feel excited, joyful or curious, right?
Like; who is this?!?!????
And not; WHO IS THIS!!!!!???
Whoever is on the other side of the door, we want that person to be met with warmth and friendliness – and the right sound from the doorbell will help spread that ambiance and set you in a welcoming mood.
Here’s how to pick a joyous doorbell for you
As so many times before, it’s time to tune in to your senses and turn on your awareness.
? It’s all about listening to the sound and be aware of how it makes you feel.
? Ask yourself; how do you want to feel when someone hit that doorbell of yours?
? Think of what kind of ambiance you want to create. Do you want to evoke the feeling of a small wooden cottage and someone knocking on your door? Or some kind of mega castle with a proud and loud bell?
? Even the simplest ding-dong sound have different ambiances, so listen to it and pay attention to how you feel. Happy? Stressed? Excited? Annoyed?
