Convert to Calm | Create a Home Oasis
The environment in which we live can make a big difference for our emotional state. We’ve put together a few ways you can easily create a calming area that promotes a healthy mindset. Read on for tips on creating your own home oasis.
Shed Some Light
Best case scenario, natural light is ideal. Open up those shades and let the sunshine in. For the evening hours, invest in some warm-toned light bulbs. The light in your environment has a big impact on your mood and can help fight off feelings of depression.
Take a Whiff of Serenity
Pick up some candles, a diffuser or a wall plug-in of a calming scent such as lavender, eucalyptus, jasmine or vanilla.
Each of these scents help your body and mind unwind in some way. Breathe deep and enjoy.
Bring the Outdoors In
Nature really does just do the body good. There are many plants that you can place throughout your home to help lessen anxiety, and even purify the air. Some of our favorite, low-maintenance plants include Aloe Vera, Snake Plants, or Areca Palms. Sounds of nature help your body decrease fight-or-flight feelings. If you can’t tune into nature by opening the windows, you can find some tracks online or through your favorite streaming services.
Cool Down Your Decor
Cooler colors evoke more calming feelings like serenity and a sense of security. Incorporate blues and purples with pieces like throw pillows and blankets, paintings and pictures, decorative bowls and tables. If you’re really invested in this project, go ahead and paint!
