Going home after a long day should be a relaxing experience, but many people still find themselves stressed when they settle in on the couch. If you’re one of those people, you need to create a stress free zone at home. Here are five tips for turning your home into the comforting space you’ve always dreamed of:
Less is more
Clutter causes worry. The first step in creating a more Zen environment is to get rid of anything you no longer need. Once all unnecessary furniture and trash is gone, you’ll feel a weight lifted
off your shoulders. Bonus: there will also be fewer things to clean every week!
Surround yourself with nature
Although you can’t bring the hiking trail home, you can add plants and greenery to your living quarters to recreate that relaxing atmosphere. Green plants not only aid in purifying the air but
also have a calming influence on everyone in the house. Avoid plants and flowers that are high maintenance or have a strange odor such as Baby’s Breath, Dumb Cane or Caladium.
Aromatherapy can be a great way to de-stress after a long day. Adding an aromatherapy diffuser to your bedroom, or any room, can help ease anxiety and help you relax. It can even serve as a natural sleep aid.
Bright lights can be harsh and overwhelming, especially when you first wake up. To combat this, you can upgrade your existing bulbs to bulbs with a warm white tone, add softer lighting using lamps, or add dimmer switches to your existing light fixtures.
Have a designated personal space
Having a place to get away when you need is important. This personal space can be a room, or even a special chair in the living room, as long as you feel comfortable in that area. Let other people in the home know that when you’re in that space, it’s your time to unwind.
