5 Tips for a Happy Home
What makes a happy home? First and foremost, we all know that it’s the people you share it with. But while your friends and family certainly contribute the most to your overall happiness, your actual home does too. Your home affects every aspect of your life, from your productivity to your health, so make sure it’s in tip-top shape. Now that your spring cleaning is finished, it’s time to make sure your house is as happy and healthy as possible.
Get Into Feng Shui
Feng shui is the belief that you can bring harmony and peace to your surrounding by strategically arranging your furniture. But even if you’re not totally into feng shui, studies have shown that just by rearranging your furniture, you feel like your space has been rejuvenated.
Think Beyond Just Sight
When you were first decorating your home, you probably spent hours deciding on paint samples and floor tiles, but did you ever think about incorporating your other four senses? A happy home is more than just a visibly beautiful one. Fresh scents and peaceful music can make your home feel just as warm as a welcome wreath.
Declutter Your Home
And no, we don’t mean clearing the counters when they get crowded — we mean a real, deep decluttering. The less clutter you have in your home, the more space there is to play and relax (because you also don’t have to worry about cleaning as much!).
Let the Light In
A happy home is a bright home. Thanks to clappers, dimmers, and fan lights, natural lighting is often pretty overlooked in a home. Make your space seem larger and more inviting by opening up those big drapes.
Maintain Good Air Quality
Thanks to chemical cleaners and pet dander, EPA studies have shown that indoor pollutants can be two to five times higher inside your home, than outside. Make sure your family is breathing in the best air possible by installing an indoor air quality system.
