This year we stayed home more than we ever did. We don't know about you, but we have seen so many women beautify their living space be it to make the best out of the situation, ease anxiety sometimes, or as simple as creating a new space for work, leisure, or workout. One of our team members got greener and splurged on plants 😊🌿
Have you noticed that your surrounding space affects you? Do you ever feel that a certain room in the house is more comfortable than the other? Do you ever feel better after clearing up your desk and getting rid of unnecessary clutter? If the answer is yes, then you probably have an idea about where we are going with this.
Wellness encompasses 8 mutually interdependent dimensions: physical, intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual, vocational, financial, and environmental. Home is part of our environment and we want it to be a happy place now more than ever...Right?
Home Wellness is the active pursuit of creating and maintaining a healthy, balanced home. The way you set up your space and the teeny tiny details within can help you relax, sleep well, or better yet tickle your creative senses. And because sharing is caring, we present to you our top three tried and tested methods for bringing good energy into your space.
Purify the air with Plants 🌱
Some green beauties help detoxify the air in closed living spaces from airborne toxins, dust, and germs. Remember the science lesson from second grade where we learned that plants take carbon dioxide and release oxygen? Well, this will help you breathe better at night and eventually develop healthier -sleeping patterns.
The color green has a calming effect too, so by just looking at them you will feel relaxed. It's one way to bring nature inside...right? Find your favorite house plant and give it a new home.
Declutter and Detox 💥
Get rid of the unnecessary. We all got stuff we haven't used in years, tickets from concerts, mementos from trips, college essays 🤓 (don't ask), old magazines, and the list goes one. Chances are if you haven't been using it for a year or two, it is very unlikely you will #justsaying
Separate your stuff into piles, this can help you decide what to keep and what to throw away. Here are our four categories:
Keep: Things you will use or make use of. These could be sentimental items too.
Toss: Things that have 5 cm of dust on them and will never be used again.
Donate: Things you won't be using but can be beneficial for someone else
Sell: The more than you need pile or simply things that are in good shape which you are willing to give up and can be sold. Win-Win!
You will be surprised how much decluttering will make a difference, both mentally and psychologically. It can teach you to let go of your attachment. It will not only help you clear rooms, counters, and probably spaces you have been avoiding for a while, but it will affect your productivity positively, decrease stress levels, and make the little things you do at home a tad easier. It may even feel like a weight has been lifted off your shoulders and your brain will thank you for it.
We say: "Less is more".
Keep your space neat and tidy. Now that you got rid of everything you don't need, you probably have more space in your wardrobe and drawers. Now comes the part you'll thank us for...we promise :)
We believe when everything has a place, it takes out the guess work. When you're clothes are laid out nicely, you'll find your favorite pieces easily and possibly take less time to get dressed, we hope 😅 This also means the chair in your room will be used for its actual purpose 😂Same thing goes for the utensils drawer in the kitchen or that cramped up storage closet. Invest in some cool organization props and take on a new space every week. In a couple of months, you will feel lighter, less tense, and a sense of pride and achievement.
We tell you, if we can do it so can you.
