Make your home a peaceful sanctuary
Your house is a sanctuary. Somewhere to take it easy, refresh and appreciate your own space. And even though it's easy to slip into the habit of keeping things the same in your home, there are a few practical things you can do to keep your home a safe, peaceful place. Here are our top tips for calming and relaxing at home.
Let fresh air stream through your house
On a gorgeous, sunny day, there's nothing better than opening your windows and doors to let fresh air stream through your house. Even if it's a crippling summer day, it's still possible to open the doors and windows earlier in the morning or at dusk to let fresh air into your house. Bonus, you can find that leaving different windows and doors open at each end of your home produces an active cross breeze to keep you cool on breezy days!
Brighten up your house with plants
House plants are an effective way to bring more air into a house, and to make a real difference they don't have to be costly. At your home improvement store or nursery, you will find all sorts of indoor plants for less than $30 that will brighten up your home's tiny corners. Only make sure you buy a plant that will appeal to your surroundings. Think of tropical plants in rooms with plenty of sunshine and more responsive plants such as fiddle leaf figs for rooms with more gentle sunlight.
Essential oils smell amazing
Try burning any essential oils in an oil burner or essential oil diffuser if you are partial to burning a candle while at home. Not only do essential oils smell amazing, but some oils can also help you feel more comfortable or energised. Consider lavender to wind down before bedtime and an uplifting fragrance such as peppermint or peach in the morning.
Keep healthy food available
The kitchen is the centre of their home for so many people, bringing people together for celebration meals or a quiet breakfast on Sunday. Allow your favourite healthy snacks to be available in your kitchen to keep you on top of eating healthy. You should try to reorganise your pantry or put on your benches your preferred nuts and seeds and spices, so they are always in close proximity.
It is easy to slip into the same old habits at home as life gets busy. Nonetheless, some rapid changes in your living space will help turn your home into a peaceful haven where you enjoy spending time.
