Add sound and movement to your house, followed by ventilation and lighting.
First, get some water boiling. It’s best to use a whistling kettle to add some noise to the space, but if one is not available, any kettle or saucepan will do.
As soon as you hear the water boiling, turn on television and the radio.
Once you get the audio-visual going, open up all the windows then turn on the air conditioning and electric fans.
Last but not least, switch on all the lights.
The idea is to draw prosperity to your new home by introducing vitality.
As a way to be conscientious of the environment, electrical appliances can be switched off after around 15 minutes when the moving-in ritual is complete.
