The Importance of Creating a Space that Makes You Happy
Does coming home ease your stress or make it worse?
When you come home from work, you bring all the stress with you and that’s expected. But still feeling anxious even after coming home is not a good sign at all.
Your home should be your sanctuary – the one place you’re most comfortable and happy.
We have different definitions of a space that makes us happy. For some, it can be a wall painted in bright yellow while others prefer the relaxing effect of a light blue one.
If you’re still unsure if you need a redecoration, these reasons should take care of it.
- Gives you the freedom to express yourself
Your style changes as years pass so if it has been at least three years since your last revamp, now is the right time to freshen the countertops and re-stain the wooden cabinets. From a Mid-Century design, switch to this year’s trend which is High-end Minimalist style just like this multipurpose side table.
Make sure to choose a design and include items that show your identity. Also think about how you want to feel and what you’d like to achieve when you stay in that space. Do you want to feel relaxed or do you need something more stimulating?
- Improves your mental clarity
A cluttered space is a sign of a cluttered mind. You may not notice it but there are lots of things in your room or home that you don’t use as much. Some items may even just be gathering dust all these years.
Remove unnecessary stuff and throw them away. If someone else can use them, you can store them in these garage-sale-ready collapsible crates. Decluttering has a positive effect both on your mental and physical well-being.
- Releases all the good stuff
How your body reacts to what you see is triggered by your happy hormones – serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin and endorphins. Nature and sunshine helps trigger these happy hormones so you may want to consider integrating some of its aspects into your indoor design. Seeing several succulents neatly arranged on this retro ladder shelf can make you feel better in just seconds.
- Improves productivity
Won’t you feel better seeing your favorite color on the walls? How about your favorite quote displayed on your desk? A room that displays your favorites things and personality will not only boost your mood but also your confidence. You’ll worry less and have more energy to be productive.
A well-designed space will also help you think better. You can get inspiration from new items you see in your home. A clear mind makes it easier to plan things and make decisions.
- Makes you feel healthier and better overall
Because you’ve made your home a happy place, you’ll look forward to coming home after a stressful day. You can just lounge for a while and de-stress without getting bothered by that old wallpaper or faded painting. You can sleep better with softer linens, fluffier pillows and without shoes scattered on the floor.
Giving your space a revamp is like giving yourself a restart. If you’re stuck in a rut or doing things incorrectly, it means you need to make a few adjustments and add new pieces. That unique set of French vases just might ignite new ideas for your next big project!
