5 Ways To Make Your Home Stress Free
In 2018, our lives are so much busier than ever. It is important that you come home to an environment where it is possible to rest and relax. It is important to have an area that it is possible to decompress in. It’s not only important but essential to our well-being. People would most likely agree that our home is our place of refuge from the rest of the world. Having a relaxing and stress free home can help make us more productive, less stressed and overall much happier. We truly believe that your home is your sanctuary, and your castle. The John & JP Stone Real Estate Team would like to share a few ideas that will help you create the relaxing home you desire.
Cutting Out Clutter
First things first. It is very hard to relax in a cluttered and messy space. It’s not just physical clutter that can increase stress. Mental clutter increases stress as well. It is important to think of creative storage solutions for your home to maximize space and cut out the most clutter. You will find that taking time to organize all of your belongings will create fewer distractions when you are trying to steady your mind and make you stress free.
Splurging on Bedding
Most people spend a great deal of attention in the main areas of the home. The kitchen, living room and dining room. How much time do you spend on your private rooms though? Your bedroom especially needs to be your ultimate retreat in your home if you want to get the rest you deserve. When you are designing your bedroom, make your bedding a top priority and make sure to invest in pieces that support your routine, and how you like to wind down from a hectic day.
Bring Plants Inside
Plants have a variety of benefits. Besides purifying your indoor air, plants in the home bring nature and life into your home. House plants are for the most part easy to maintain if they are taken care of. Trust us, you don’t need a green thumb to keep a house plant, just a bit of time and patience.
Special touches take our mind to another place and make our body unwind. Just think of things that relax you. For some people it’s a beautiful painting, or the feeling you get when you climb into a set of crisp clean sheets. Fill your home with simple details that feed your soul and make you feel good.
Play Into Your Senses
We are subject to so many environmental stressors every single day. Our phones constantly harass us, digital devices are constantly pinging and giving us notifications. These are just a few things. Other than ensuring that your home is arranged how you enjoy it and is a stress free environment, you can try playing calming music that makes you feel balanced and help you destress. It is important to rebalance yourself after a long day. Maybe even light a candle or burn some oil that smells nice. The important thing is to do what makes you unwind after a long day. Just find something that appeals to your senses and you won’t go wrong.
Enjoy your relaxation!
