De-clutter to make space in your life:
You do not need half as much as you think you do and getting rid of some of it will make way for new opportunities, giving you headspace to reimagine your life. Energy needs to circulate freely throughout your home just like your blood needs to flow unimpeded through your blood vessels, the electrical impulses need to travel through your nervous system without difficulty, and your food needs to pass through your entire digestive tract without blockage. Think of your home and your body as the same.
Choose natural finishes for a healthy home and well-being:
Natural is also the most beautiful and can be a practical option too. Anything artificial such as plastic is chemical-based and these chemicals off-gas into our environment and leach into our drinking water. Our indoor air can become more contaminated that outside air because most modern homes are sealed units that trap stale air inside. The newer the construction of the building, the more these gases are being released into your home. Keep air vents and trickle vents clear and ensure your home is adequately aired every day. Toxic chemicals in scented candles, air fresheners and diffusers are poisonous. There are many harmful chemicals in cleaning agents too. Think natural if you want to increase wellbeing and positively influence your health.
Select calm colour schemes:
Choose colours that bring peace and tranquillity into your home, creating a haven of calm and the perfect sanctuary for rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. You can still add rich warm colours or have pops of bright and beautiful colour around your home, just keep the proportions balanced and be sure to choose colours that make your heart sing. If you are not feeling brave then choose a neutral backdrop such as white and fill your spaces with rich materials like mid and dark coloured wood, beautiful textures such as linen, mix old and new to create a cosy homely feel and leave the colour to the accessories, artwork, and rugs.
This is something we are all becoming more and more aware of – too much unnecessary noise which is exhausting and stressing us out as well as ruining our peace and quiet. Choose appliances that operate at less than conversation level, i.e., less than 48 decibels will help, especially in an open-plan kitchen living area. Every now and then switch off the television, radio and other distractions and just listen to and appreciate the silence. It is good for your mind, body, and soul to shut off, and to learn the value of alone time, the joy of silence, and the pleasure of escape from outside interference. 50% of Europeans are exposed to higher levels of noise leading to sleep loss, stress, stroke, etc. so noise has a significant impact on our health.
