Writing for verywellmind, wellness coach Elizabeth Scott says one of the most effective ways to manage stress in your life is to create a peaceful home.
Putting time and energy into organising your home so it feels peaceful is well worth the investment. Clutter and mess externally usually equates to the same internally. Feeling disorganised in your life impacts your energy, as the art of Feng Shui dictates.
Here are Ms Scott’s five tips to creating a peaceful home...
1. Declutter and decorate
Do some interior decorating and create the kind of beautiful environment that makes you feel relaxed - and energised at the same time.
2. Make space for your habits
Creating a space in your home for the things that ease your stress, like yoga, reading, exercise or music is important and will help you maintain those habits.
3. Use Feng Shui
This ancient practice is reported to relieve stress. It’s easy to incorporate a few of the basic Feng Shui principles into your home to bring about some calming benefits, such as creating a clear entryway, removing obstacles or placing plants around the home.
4. Create a calm aroma
As the science of aromatherapy proves, smells can instantly induce a sense of calm. A scented candle or oil burner can help to provide subtle stress relief in your house.
5. Listen to music
Music can be a game changer for your mood, especially when it’s the perfect playlist. Make a point of putting some music on whenever you want to relax.
