THE YEAR OF HOME
No matter the budget there are ways to create spaces that nurture and heal. Living in harmony with your surroundings optimizes your health and wellbeing, liberates and fuels your natural energy and makes you happier. If you’re struggling to find your way or if your space is not quite doing it for you, here are some easy ways to invite positive change into your home.
Create A Quiet Corner: A small space or even just a chair can provide a quiet spot for some “me time” which is vital to well being, even for pets and children. The small scale of this chair is perfect for Radar who likes to nap in my bedroom. Children often like to be nestled in spaces, so scaling furniture to fit their needs is key for comfort.
Keep Your Kitchen Gleaming: As the center of nourishment and the heart of the home, your kitchen is directly related to your health and abundance. The cleaner, the better.
Take Advantage Of Natural Light: There is nothing like lying in a little patch of sunlight while relaxing indoors. This sectional flanked by two windows is a perfect perch for reading, daydreaming, or my personal favorite…napping.
Work From Home Near A Window: If you can, set up your wfh space near a window or as close to natural light as possible. Being able to see out a window while working is inspiring and connects you to nature.
Calm Down the Bedroom: This is one room where it’s best to limit electronic devices and gadgets. Laptops, iPads, and cell phones tend to disturb rest. It’s also best if you can control the level of light with dimmers. Lower light levels will signal the body it’s time to sleep.
Corral Kids’ Clutter: Kids have a lot of stuff. Finding attractive ways to store it is key for parental peace of mind. Plus it develops good organizing habits for the wee ones.
Lighten Up: Energy, much like a moth, is attracted to light. Infuse energy into stagnant corners or dark areas with lighting. This is particularly important in stairwells or hallways.
