If 2017 was the year of staying in, 2018 is decidedly the time when your home gets a whole lot healthier. The inspiring, stylish design ideas that adorn the places where we usually walk around a lot, can become a place where we can just relax and destress ourselves.
Create a feel-good focal point. The first thing you see when you enter your home should be something you love, whether that’s a piece of art, a vase of flowers, or a special souvenir.
2. Creating Space
Our anxiety builds in small spaces if there’s too much stuff in the living room. To reduce the clutter and make the room feel larger, ask yourself if you really need all those end tables or picture frames, and cut anything deemed nonessential.
3. Bring The Outdoors In.
Being surrounded by natural elements encourages friendlier interactions with others. For a more peaceful home, bring in a couple of houseplants or hang a mirror across from your largest window to maximize outdoor vantage points.
4. Use Soothing Hues
Generally, we find cool shades of blue and green and neutral earth tones to be relaxing because they remind us of nature.
5. Switch Off Electronics
To rest easier, remove all televisions and computers from your bedroom. The light emitted by these devices signals the brain to stay awake, interfering with a good night’s sleep and leaving you with elevated levels of stress hormones in the morning.
