Home is where the heart is, and if your heart is constantly running around and feeling stressed, it is time to take care of the home. There are plenty of small things you can add to your home that will make it a peaceful environment where you can truly rest at the end of the day.
Clean it up
Nothing adds more stress than a dirty house. Whether that be a quick load of laundry or running the dishwasher, a little bit of effort goes a long way. Cleaning is also a fantastic way to relieve stress. Put on a podcast or your favorite music and start cleaning.
Essential Oil Diffuser
The smell of lavender or lemon wafting through the home is always welcome. There are plenty of combinations you can make that will reflect the feeling you’re hoping to evoke. Mix oils to help you focus, sleep, meditate, and unwind. If you have pets at home, check before mixing the scents. Some scents aren’t safe for our furry friends.
Cook from scratch
The rhythmic chopping of something on the cutting board, the quiet bubbling of something on the stovetop, and the smell wafting through the home make a creative atmosphere. You will feel at home in no time. If you are not a fan of cooking, a meal kit delivery service will give you all the ingredients and directions you need to be successful.
Bring Nature Indoors
A plant, succulent, or fresh cut flowers will make the home a happier place. Live plants will also help to detox the air, which is a great benefit! If gardening is not one of your talents, fake works too (we won’t tell anyone). As long as it’s greenery it’s sure to improve your mood.
Open the windows
Fresh air does wonders for the soul! Your home will feel fresher, and you’ll feel happier. It’s also a great way to reduce allergens if you have pets. If it’s cold outside, even ten minutes will help improve the air quality in your home. If it’s spring, leave them wide open and enjoy the season!
