I have been reading and listening to a lot of tips and advice about how to ensure that I and all of us take care of ourselves and our mental health. And what I have taken away is that we should start in our living spaces because we spend so much time in our homes and it is there where we should create spaces that express calmness and invites self-care and love.
Creating peaceful surroundings will help to reduce stress and will have an all-around positive impact on your mental wellbeing.
Start small and try not to spend any money. Have a look around your home and use what you already have.
Bring in the Light
introducing the calmness of the outdoors into your home, it can be as easy as placing mirrors opposite to your windows. This will increase the amount of natural light that streams into your room. Try and get rid or trim down any shrubs that block the light from streaming into your windows. Make sure that your mirrors and windows are gleaming, a good polish will ensure that you get the maximum light shining through.
There is nothing like the smell of nature a deep breath of fresh morning air or the smell of the sea is so calming. Bring those smells into all your spaces with an aroma diffuser, incense, potpourri, or candles.
