How Does Your Home Make You Feel?
After a long work day, does your home feel like your personal sanctuary? Learn how to create the perfect sanctuary in your home with just a few simple steps.
According to an article at apartmenttherapy.com, “Does Your Home Feel Peaceful or Stressful?”
“What’s the difference between a house and a home? A house is a structure you live in that provides for your basic needs and safety. A home is a place that provides you mental and emotional support, a place you look forward to being in to get away from the outside world. Do you feel that way about your home? If not, follow me…
Let’s look at some things that can often get overlooked when creating a home — things that not only create a kind of sanctuary for you, but are also easy, free, and within your grasp.
Letting Go: It’s possible to focus so much on decor, design, and picking the perfect furniture to reflect your personality and interests that can turn your house into a place of stress. How about taking a quick breather and switching gears for a sec and not allowing that stress to enter your home? Trust it will all eventually come together and just let it all happen when it does. Try cherishing your home in all its different quirky stages. Your mind and wallet will thank you for it in the end.
Make It a Refuge: Do you have a place you go to in your mind that’s a no-stress zone? A place that you sneak away to that just calms you down and clears your mind? For me it’s when I step into a yoga studio — the outside world just seems to melt away. Now wouldn’t it be incredible if that place was your home? How can you make that happen for you? Maybe try taking a few deep breaths before you open the door, or leaving all the negativity outside on the front steps. What can you do to eliminate stress and worry from your house and make it a peaceful, happy place?” To read the entire article click here.
