Posted on 04/28/2020 at 09:00 AM by Deonna Adams
When most of us think about "home" we think about a place where we can relax. It’s our safe place. We go home to recharge and de-stress from a long day. However, there can be things in our home that can actually cause anxiety. After a long day, we sit down and we may notice all the work that has to be done to our home. Whether, it’s cleaning up after the kids, or a long list of house repairs. So, let’s talk about how to reduce stress at home.
Use Fresh Flowers as an Accent
Nature has a natural ability to help us reduce stress. So, why not bring nature into your home by adding fresh flowers for a pop color. Plants help to add to oxygen in the air and remove toxins. Taking care of a plant and arranging beautiful flowers is enough to help you relax and say goodbye to stress. If you don’t have a green thumb artificial flowers or plants can help by giving the illusion that you have a part of nature inside your home. Here are a few ideas of arrangements that will do just that.
Clear the clutter
Take a Saturday afternoon, and lots of trash bags and commit to clearing out any clutter that might be stressing you out. Home organization is a huge step in the right direction of de-stressing your home. Go through all of your drawers in your desk, and clean out old papers that are no longer needed. Get rid of old electronics or cords. Use decorative bins to add storage, or this Copenhagen White Storage Tower. Knowing that everything is in and has a proper place will give you peace of mind and a big smile.
Bring in more light
Vitamin D is essential and we can get it by allowing natural sunlight into our home. When our home is dark it can make you feel sleepy or down. So open your windows, and if you want privacy try flipping open only the top of your blinds. This will bring in light and still give you the privacy desired.
The flickering glimmer of a candle can be relaxing itself. Use scents that will naturally calm you like eucalyptus, vanilla, or lavender. Add decorative accents with candles to make your home feel warm and cozy. These Mini Glass Hurricanes and Black & White Check Flicker Pillar Candles would be perfect!
These are just a few ways to make your home relaxing and inviting. Invest in your space and you won’t regret it!
