Wellness at Home

Your home is the place you spend most of your time, it’s important you feel comfortable and happy in your space, here are some suggestions to incorporate wellness at home:

Keep it tidy: Chaotic spaces are detached from the mental state of those who live in it. Throw away everything you don’t need.

Choose light colors: Colors might seem somewhat irrelevant, but the right choice can make the difference between whether you enjoy being there or not. Light tones provide a sense of calm and peace.

Decorate with plants: Plants fill the space with life, and contribute to cleaning the air.

Practice mindfulness: Focus on the simple things at home, find joy in each small activity, from cleaning the dishes to doing laundry and keeping everything organized.

Open your windows: This important habit will help ventilate and refresh the air in your home, it also helps to remove negative energies and prevents bad odors.

Include aromatherapy: Aromas you are exposed to can affect your mood, some can help you feel calm and relaxed. Personalize the fragrance of your home with aromas that you identify with. Light aromatic candles, incense or use essential oils to add aroma to your living space.

Utilize sound therapy: Listening to music helps regulate emotions and can create happiness and relaxation in everyday life. It can move us to a more positive state of mind, remind us of happy moments, and increase self-esteem and self-confidence.

Meditate: Set up your favorite nook as a meditation space, design it with comfort and tranquility as the main goal, transform it with your personal touch.

Include elements that help promote relaxation and concentration, select items that you are drawn to and feel comfortable seeing every day. Ideally, create a space that can help you to connect with nature, either via sound, sight, or smell.
