The spaces we inhabit have a considerable influence over our ou mental and physical well-being. Our surroundings, what we see, hear, and smell, affect us. They can either lift us up and make us feel amazing, or they can cause us a lot of dress, anxiety and depression. What that means is that we have the power the transform our surroundings with a view to lifting our well-being. The good news is that there are a lot of home improvements you can make to achieve this. Let’s take a look at a few of them now:
Minimalism is a way of life which helps you live more in the present moment. It is a way to stop regretting the past or worrying about the future and experiment in the now more fully. It is about keeping things that add value and purging everything this has none, from people, habits, and things. You can start living this lifestyle by thoroughly decluttering your home of all the things that no longer have any value in your life now. You may have an emotional attachment to a lot of items in your home, but this is not how you live your best life now. By decluttering and getting rid of these items, you a severing the bond to the past, and this will help you move on and become happier. You will also create more space in your home, as well as make it safer and cleaner.
Plants are a great addition to any home and can definitely increase your well-being. Plants are natural air purifiers and can suck in toxins and breathe out fresh, clean air. They can also reduce the cortisol in your body – cortisol is the stress hormone. They can even help a room remain more temperate.
Some of you may feel that you need to install a brand new kitchen and bathroom to rete a home that enhances your well-being. In some cases, this may be necessary, but perhaps you could try a few more cost-effective methods first. Why not change a few of the fixtures? This means the taps, handles, door knobs, lampshades, curtains and even a few table legs. You can give a room a more contemporary feel or create a different mood with alternative coloured lampshades. You can make the sinks appear fresh and new by upgrading the taps. So do a little investigation and try changing the small things and see if that helps you create the feel you want.
A lick of paint here and there can really freshen up a room. Remember that colours can create different moods too. So, if you want a room to make you feel calm, then try a nice cool green. Colour can also make a room seem larger or smaller. If you want to create a more cosy atmosphere, you could try painting the room dark red. Lighter colours make small rooms appear more spacious. Think about how you want to feel in a particular room and find a colour that matches.
