Change is the only constant in life. We keep changing our looks, our hairstyle, our cars and so on, so what’s the purpose behind it? We need a fresh breeze of energy in our life, not for others to praise us but for ourselves. People at times renovate their rooms or the entire house for two reasons. Either there is some wear and tear which needs to be checked and second for that fresh look and feel which they feel will bring freshness in their lives too. But what we overlook at times is that renovation and that too at a large scale brings with it a whole lot of chemical pollutants and toxins in the house. A research says that if you are undertaking some renovation, then at least two plants are required per 100 square feet of area to absorb the toxins and clean the air.

Vaastu is all about creating harmony inside you by bringing changes in your outer world or by developing a coherence in your outer and inner world.
