Do you ever come home sometimes and you just feel on edge? You don’t know why but anything and everything is ticking you off. It’s common, especially after a long day of work or school or whatever you do with your day.
I’ve started to do some simple things to improve the energy in my home to make me feel at ease and comfortable when coming home after a long day. And now I would like to share that with you.
Himalayan Salt Lamps
Some people call it a myth but actually himalayan salt has massive benefits to your body and soul. Here are some most common benefits from these powerful lamps.
Cleanse and deodorize the air
Reduce allergy and asthma symptoms
Increases energy levels
Neutralize electromagnetic radiation
Improved mood & concentration
Treat seasonal affective disorder (winter blues)
Reduce static electricity on the air
“Tidy room. Tidy mind.” This is oh so true. Some people might be convinced that they like things better messy but realistically when there is clutter in your surroundings, there is clutter in your mind and if theres clutter in your mind you can’t truly be at ease. Start by minimalizing. This is process of reducing the things in your life that aren’t necessary. Things that have been sitting in your room for ages that has an inch thick pile of dust on it because you haven’t touched it in 5 years. If you don’t use it, lose it! Those things that you do use and need, organize it. Find places for all of your belongings so that all your counters and bureau tops are cleared away. Take a weekend (maybe set a goal for a full spring cleaning) to go through your things and decide what you need to keep and what you can donate or throw away. Keep this thought in mind, there are a lot of people out there that might need all those things you haven’t used. Give em up. Take 5-10 minutes during your day to put things in their places and clear off your counters and floors. It will make you feel so much better – promise.
No Work or Technology Near Your Resting Space
One of the worst things you can do is combine your work and the place where you rest. This makes the mind associate these places with work and stress and it makes it almost impossible to relax in the one place you want to relax. If you watch TV before bed, make sure you shut it off before you fall asleep. Don’t have your computer near your bed or work on your bed. Try to leave your cell phone outside of your room. OMG did I really just say that? – YES. Get an alarm clock. You don’t need to check your Instagram 5 times before bed and right when you wake up.
The point being that when you are ready to relax – relax with no distractions or things in your space that your mind might associate with stress.
Incorporate the 5 Elements
Fire – Candles don’t just make your smell wonderful, they can keep stagnant energy moving making the air feel lighter and more inviting.
Water – Water symbolizes wisdom and adaptability. Keep a small desk fountain to remind you to go with the flow. Feng shui says that if the water is flowing into your room versus out then that represents new opportunities coming into your life.
Wood – You will usually have wood already in your room with furniture. You can also add plants to add clarity and productivity to the mix.
Earth – To put a little piece of the Earth in your space, find some healing crystals. These beauties are said to be a powerful tool in energy balancing and healing. They are also said to harmonize interiors.
Metal – By adding metal in the form of wind chimes or metal decor, you can cleanse the energy of the room with musical vibration.
Numero Uno for making an energy at home better is changing your mindset about the space. Learn to love the space you live in in order to give yourself more relaxation and comfort. Make your space your own.
