In the current climate, with so many of us working from home, it’s more important than ever that we have a happy and harmonious home or workspace.
Restructuring your living and working space can boost your positivity and productivity. So dragging your desk to the other side of the room and shifting your bookshelf could prove more worthwhile than you think!
Does bringing balance to your bedroom and injecting life into your living room sound good to you? Here are our top tips:
Let’s start with the bedroom. Your boudoir, place of rest, relaxation and where all the good things go down, like sleep!
Feng Shui experts say that when in bed you should have a clear view of the room and door. They advise your head should be against something solid, like a wall, therefore leaving no space behind you.
If your bedroom doubles up as your office, then have your desk facing the door. This offers you a position of power, as opposed to sitting with your back to the door. Also, did you know having your desk facing a solid wall can negatively affect both your concentration and creativity? No one looks to a brick wall for inspiration do they?!
Become a parent… to some plants!
Bringing the outside in can really benefit a home. Not only brightening your interiors, but brightening your mood too. Having some greenery in your living space has all kinds of benefits. Plants add a little serenity, tranquillity and calm into a world which can often be loud and overwhelming.
Not only do plants help you feel calmer but, like a sponge, they naturally absorb toxic compounds from the air, meaning they work towards purifying the air you breathe.
Let’s not forget they look great too, making the perfect home accessory. What’s not to love about a house plant?
We’ve left this until last, because we can all be guilty of it… but it really is time to remove the clutter from your home.
Having a good clear out truly can be therapeutic. It allows you to refine what you want in your space, while the act of removing unnecessary things in your home gives you a better headspace. Plus, there could be value in the things you don’t want any more, meaning decluttering could not only benefit your mind but your bank balance too!
Clear that clutter and allow the energy to flow! Without getting too scientific, studies have found that a cluttered home can lead to overeating and procrastination. So pass us a snack while we clear the cupboards. ;)
