Summer has ended and as always, the month of September brings not only a new season but also new beginnings. And while change is a good thing, it can also sometimes be quite stressful. So, to help get into your cool, calm and collected mode, let’s explore how you can turn your home into a relaxing sanctuary.
1. Clutter needs to go!
Start with the simplest task: conquer the clutter in your home. It is a well-known fact that a cluttered home makes for a cluttered mind, so if its peace and quiet you’re looking for, sorting out those messy piles of stuff will immediately make you feel stress-free.
2. Some green will do you good
Immersing yourself in nature is a great way to recharge and de-stress, so just bring some nature into your home. All you need to do is get great looking and functional planters, and the right plants for you.
Your home’s interior will enjoy a boost of color and you will enjoy toxin-free air, according to a NASA study, and the relaxing effect of plants.
3. A room to escape to
Your bedroom is your sanctuary, the room where you escape from a stressful day. So, if you don’t find your bedroom relaxing, try adding some of your favorite colors to the walls, furniture or floor, focusing on creating a décor that will draw you in.
4. Smell is important
Get yourself some scented candles in fragrances that put a smile on your face and place them strategically around the house. Make sure you get candles that promise a long-lasting scent, so you can enjoy their aroma even without lighting them. You can even put one in your closet, so that the fabrics soak in the delightful scents.
