While Vastu is an ancient art that evolved in tandem with Vedic architecture, in many ways it was still ahead of its time. The Shaasthras even have remedies for mental health issues like anxiety and depression, which are often described as modern day illnesses.
“Healing arts and pseudoscience can never replace medical advice from a mental health professional, but you can try moving things around your home or office, if space makes you nervous all the time. “, says Shilpa Khurana, a New Delhi. consultant based.
Khurana has a list of remedies but inserts a precursor first: “An individual can be very good at conceiving great ideas, but the ability to analyze and implement them is also very important. So churning the mind is essential, but when it goes overboard, it results in unnecessary negative thoughts that cause anxiety,” she says.
The churning zone
According to Vastu, an imbalance between the east and southeast of your home can cause anxiety issues. It is described as the area of manthan (churning). Imbalance in this area can cause screw (venom) or anxiety, while a zone of balance causes amrit (nectar) or productivity. “I’ve had many clients who have sought out the best psychiatrists in town to resolve their anxiety, but until they corrected their area of manthanthey often had relapses,” she says.
Sleeping here should be avoided at all costs. Do not hold meetings (Zoom) or use this area as a temple or puja room.

Now, even though it is a negative space, this area can be affected like your bar (the instability of this area is associated with intoxication), a storage room, a laundry room with a washing machine (churning , remember?), an area to place your trash can and TV (this area is also associated with fantasy). “Toilets in this area reduce anxiety and quick decision-making, which may be good for those dealing with the stock market, but not for others.”
