When all else fails and we are stressed, depressed, or full of anxiety, we cocoon ourselves at home as that is our only place where we do not have to call anyone, hide our fears from or even cry. If your home is not comfortable enough then it changes a lot of things. Here are some tips for home decor that can calm down the hurricane in you.
Make your home, your sanctuary of sorts, and redecorate it using the easy and tangible tips.
Clean up that mess and get rid of things that are of no use to you and do not have happy memories attached to them. Get rid of all negativity around you. A clean environment is the basis of any treatment. Just like it is said that stop thinking negatively? You must stop living in the negative as well.
Spending time amid nature is the first step we take when we want a clear mind. Even if you are home-bound, you can always bring nature inside. Place some good and bold plants in different corners of the house. It will relax you and ground you spiritually. Just pick the right ones.
If your home has loud colours, it can create uncertainty at times. Instead, go for a palette that is soothing and calming. Get hues that give the feeling of relaxed space. Shades of lavender, beige, whites and peaches and even blues do a good job. They set the tone of tranquility. If you do want to add clours, do so with the decor which can be changed easily.
Get A Roomba
This is something trending now thanks to Korean dramas. A Roomba vacuum cleaner is a must these days. To slack on some housework like cleaning, a Roomba does its job the whole day and you do not have to worry about it.
The effect of candles is underrated for sure. It changes the atmosphere and changes your mood. When we go to the salon or a spa or call an at-home salon service, the first thing they do is light some sort of aroma. Aromatherapy is becoming huge as we are all at home and everyone needs a change. Get the relaxing scents, the ones that calm your nerves or strike a chord with those happy memories you had locked somewhere in your mind.
If you are up to it and ready to try then study a bit on Feng Shui. It is a Chinese practice that channels a person's environment and surroundings. To practice it you may have to make or set up a corner in the house. A little organisation and thought into this can help a lot.
Begin with these and then practice meditation or yoga or a hobby every day. Stay tuned to HerZindagi for more such tips to manage stress, depression, and anxiety.
