1. Embrace feng shui
Feng shui is the art of placement and according to this Chinese philosophy, where you position the things in your home can have a positive effect not just on your home’s aesthetics but on your whole life as well. Whether you’re clearing out clutter, repositioning furniture or adding healthy plants to your home, Feng Shui can help you create an uplifting space that makes you feel happy to spend time in.
2. Create a spa-like bathroom
Who doesn’t love a visit to the spa? (We’re all raising our hands over here.) But let’s face it: Regular trips to the spa can be prohibitively expensive. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some of those same spa benefits right in the comfort of your own home. Treat your bathroom like your very own sanctuary. Maybe it’s time to change the paint colour to something soft and soothing and if you’ve been thinking of renovating, consider adding a deep-soaking tub or heated floors. Looking for less expensive ideas? Indulge in fancy fragrant soaps and plush towels and take a bath by candlelight to feel happy and relaxed at home.
3. Bring in the houseplants
Houseplants serve a number of benefits, from looking beautiful and adding a touch of the outdoors to a home’s interior to clearing the air of pollutants and increasing your ability to concentrate. Since many houseplants, like spider plants, philodendron, English ivy and peace lilies, act as nature’s own air purifier and improving overall air quality, it’s not a bad idea to add a little greenery to your bedroom and get a better night’s sleep at the same time.
