Our lives are so busier these days. We spend our life in offices and on-road more than at home. Today life is so fast-paced and frenzied that we have to put effort and concentrate on slowing down. And for many of us, this doesn’t come naturally due to so many demands; instead, we need to force ourselves to get relaxed, that is, to stop and smell roses.
A chaotic home has discord and is disorganized is not a relaxed one. However, after a hard day working, a person comes home to relax and feel at ease and calm. Here are some simple and basic steps which can help you make your home feel more harmonious and have a peaceful aura when you return at the end of the day.
Fresh flowers are soothing, visually appealing, and aromatically freshen up the room.
Candles, especially white candles, add calm and relaxation. Don’t buy fragrant ones as they can get overwhelming. And make your nose feel stuffy. On the other hand, candles are part of Feng Shui and bring positivity.
The lighting of the home is very important. Natural sunlight does wonder to the spirit. A home has to look relaxing even when you get up in the morning. So don’t block the natural sunlight. Make sure you pull shades up, and curtains and the drapes are pulled offside. The daylight’s light is the natural light that can calm the mind and is good for the body.
Also, when you come home at night or evening, you must have adequate lights in the home. If the light is dim or inadequate, it affects the mood. Therefore, if you wish to lay down and have dim light that is different, the room must be well lit.
Colors in the home: the study has shown that the paint color you choose for your home profoundly affects your mood. If you wish to have a relaxing atmosphere, choose paint colors that are serene and subtle. You can choose greens that are in vogue these days, white, which is a peaceful color, tranquil blues, and even grey. The beige color is also great. You know, stick with earth colors and natural ones. Keep bright colors out of the area where you would like a calm corner in your home. Jarring colors must not be there in fabrics and furniture in the home area where you like to relax. Bright colors are very good, and your home must have them as it proves to be energetic but if you wish to calm down, have a natural and soft tone space in your home.
Hardwood floors and the soft area rugs are able to tie in furniture and create a focal point and unity is pace. You will have space that looks and feel calm, soft, and relaxed.
Remove clutter as it instills chaos and disorderliness.
