HOW TO CREATE A BETTER HOME ENVIRONMENT

We spend many hours in our home, and why come home to a space that does not make you feel good & happy? Here are some of my tips for how to create a better home environment.

Fresh air

Fresh air is one of the best tips to get a healthier home environment. Us humans we need to breathe, and we need to let air in and out. Think of your home in the same way. If you never let air out, the air inside your home gets filtered with dust, dirt from cooking etc. Do yourself a favour and open your windows for at least a few minutes every day and get some fresh air inside. This is especially good to do in your bedroom, since a colder bedroom with fresh air is also helping you to get a better sleep.

Plants Plants Plants

Plants are amazing, not only are they beautiful as decorations in your home, but they also help clean the air. NASA even made a study about the most purifying plants that helps to clean the air. I’m taking full advantage of the fact that plants are cleaning the air, so I’ve decorated my entire living room with lots of plants!

Surround yourself with things that lights you up

We spend many hours in our home, so why come home and not feel happy, uplifted or calm? If you come home everyday and just feel like ‘eh’, then why not change things? Sell the things you do not like. Paint a wall. Surround yourself with things that really makes you feel happy & home, and create a home environment that you just love. We get affected by our environment, not just our friends and families, but also our home – and this is something we can do something about. So create a space that makes you feel good!

Decluttering

In connection to creating a space that makes you feel good, it’s vital to mention decluttering. Too many of us, including myself from time to time, tend to pile things together, so it can become too chaotic and overwhelming. “Messy house equals messy mind” as the quote goes. If you are ever feeling too overwhelmed, try to declutter your space. Tidy up, throw things are (or donate to charity if they are in a fine state) that you don’t need or like any more. Getting a space cleared can clear your mind as well.
