Your home is your castle, and it should be a positive place where you can go to shut yourself off from all the troubles of the world. However, if you currently don’t feel like your home is a positive an environment as it could be, there are a few things that you can do about this. We are going to talk through some of the main ones in this article that you can work on. So, let’s ramp up the positivity in your abode!
Treat All Rooms as Important
To begin with, you should be treating all rooms as important. Some people will tell you to only focus on key areas like your living room and bedroom. And while these are the places where you will spend most of your time, when you go into other areas of the house which are packed with a mess or left undecorated, this can play a part in zapping your positive energy. So, aim to make each room in the house inspired and this will go a long way towards creating a better environment for both you and your family.
Can the Clutter
There is nothing that is more likely to get you down in your home than a mountain of clutter. Unfortunately, this is a problem that affects many houses. Essentially, you need to take a step-by-step approach to deal with clutter, making it one room at a time. If something is not in use and doesn’t provide sentimental value, it may be time to ditch it. You should also aim to get out of your impulse buying habit so that you don’t end up re-cluttering your freshly decluttered home.
Increase the Positive Vibes
The color of your home makes such a difference when it comes to its emotional and psychological impact. A simple lick of paint can make all the difference. For example, blues and greens have been shown to have a calming effect. You should also fill up your home with items that remind you of good times – whether these are photos of happy holidays or mementos that take you back to childhood.
Spic and Span
Once your home is clutter-free, it is much easier to clean. If you don’t feel like you have the time to do this yourself, you could look into maid services. There is nothing like coming home to a home environment that is both clean and uncluttered.
Nurture Your Nature
The final piece of advice that we are going to offer is to add some natural beauty to your home. There are plenty of natural elements that you can add to your home such as fresh flowers, houseplants, fountains, or other decorative elements. You should also keep your windows clean and your window sills free of debris to let in as much natural light as possible.
And there you have just a few of the simple ways that you can make a more positive home environment that you can get started on today.
I love the idea of adding a fountain to your home. We have done this in two different houses we’ve had and it changes the mood dramatically. There’s nothing more soothing than the sound of trickling water.
Having a good positive feel to your home is so important. It really helps with mental health!
Such great tips and ideas. Having a clean and mess free home makes for a calm home environment. And of course, having a positive attitude is a must too.
I really need to tackle the clutter in my home. I keep on collecting things that I really should be getting rid of.
I’m currently working on getting rid of the clutter. I did it once a couple of years ago and our home felt so much cleaner and lighter!
I loved all your advice! I am focusing on reducing the clutter. Right now we are preparing for a huge garage sale. I am ready to see the stuff GO.
I feel very disorganized when I see clutter at home so as much as possible, we clean often and put back things to where they’re supposed to be. We have a large space and it will not be a good sight to see things that don’t belong.
This is a really great post to help others build a positive home environment. It’s not always easy to remain positive but when you work to create a home environment that encourages that mindset and lifestyle, it gets easier.
Canning the clutter is a huge one for me too! I hate it when I have a pile of stuff with nowhere to put it. These are all fantastic tips!
Such good reminders! I really hate clutter b/c it makes it impossible for me to focus. Love these ideas, thank you!
I’m really liking the concept of a positive home environment. Clutter makes for stress when having to get rid of it, but, the end result would be great.
Not having clutter and a mess really helps me feel less stressed. I hate having cleaning in the back of my mind when I’m already busy worrying about other stuff I have to do!
I love this idea- a positive home environment. I know just decluttering can help ease tensions here.
I love these tips. It’s important to have a home that promotes well-being and peace. This is something everyone should read.
