How to Make Your Home Your Stress-Free Sanctuary

By Laurie Larson

As you know, home is where the heart is, but it should also be where you find peace of mind. Your home should be a refuge from stressors, like from work, school, and other commitments. You should be able to come home and relax in an environment that functions as a haven and a sanctuary.

Having a stress-free sanctuary is important to your family as well as your individual health and sense of well-being. See the following tips on how to make your home what it needs to be for you and your family.

 

  1. Optimize your bedroom

Make your bedroom your cocoon. You can transform your bedroom into being the haven for rest and relaxation you need it to be through straightforward, simple measures. First of all, you should make your bedroom for one thing only: sleep.

This means no television, work desk, or exercise equipment that can distract you or deter you from getting quality sleep. Second of all, you want a comfortable sleep structure. Invest in plush, soft blankets, a new high thread count sheet set, and consider whether you need a new mattress. Since we spend one-third of our lives asleep, investing on what you sleep upon is essential for optimum physical and mental wellness.

 

  1. Go Green

Nothing appeals to our senses in a way that leads to serenity like nature, whether it be through plants, flowers, lit candles, essential oils or natural light. Adding natural accents to your home not only promotes mental well-being, but it is good for your health as well.

Did you know that plants elevate mood, reduce your anxiety, and can even improve cognitive function? Not only that, plants are both the least expensive and most effective way to rid your house of indoor toxins. See most effective plants. Also, consider an essential oil diffuser for your home to get rid of any odor, plus choose a signature scent for your home that appeals to the senses.

Fresh flowers are a nice touch too, to help remind you of nature’s beauty right inside your home. And by all means, open your curtains and blinds – exposure to natural light is paramount for elevating mood, overall health, and anxiety levels – plus it freshens up your household surroundings.

 

  1. Eliminate Visible Stressors

We carry so much stress on your shoulders, with reminders circulating in our heads about errands, obligations, deadlines and bills, so much less do we need physical reminders of them as well.

Consider donating your wall clocks in your house, especially since you already have clocks on your microwave, stove, alarm clock, and more. Also, make your refrigerator a place only for children’s art and special mementos, not for bills and other notices.

 

  1. Clear the Clutter

Above all, the number one thing you can do to reduce stress in your home is to declutter it, creating room, peace, simplicity, and tranquility. Try reducing each room to the bare necessities in terms of at least what is visible.

Create hidden storage areas for everything else. As simplicity decreases stress, remember that purging is an essential means of decluttering. If you haven’t used something or worn something in two years, then donate it!

Purging helps you prioritize and simplify, helping you carefully consider what you keep and what you discard, as well as what you choose to purchase.

Remember that managing stress is important but that it is also a process. Through time and developing routine habits, you have the power and ability to make your house the stress-free sanctuary it needs to be. While renovating your home to be stress-free, consider some home decor inspiration as well!

Design Trends: Brass Accents

Brass accents are becoming more and more prevalent as we progress through 2019. Brass is a surprisingly warm and subtle alternative to the expected steel accents. It is much more understated and luxurious than it used to be and that is why we are seeing it in more homes! The thing about brass is that when done in a tasteful manner, it never goes out of style. While people may not be as interested in covering their rooms in wall-to-wall brass, it is well-suited to accent pieces, fixtures, lights and other smaller decor items. Check out a few photos for design inspiration!

The pendants are awesome - and I love all the brass accentsA large kitchen window design idea utilizing a large arched window above the cabinetry instead of over a kitchen sink.  While tall ceilings are needed to pull this off, this idea gives you full use of the wall for cabinetry if storage is a priority.   Source:  Ben Pentreath.Marble Bathroom Refresh + Parachute’s Bath LineA happy place to wash up after a long day.
