Keeping healthy, both physically and mentally, has taken on new meaning since last year. Here are some ways to make your home a healthier space that makes you and your family happy.
Nature helps us relax, so why not invite it into your home? Not the creepy crawlies of course, but bright, summer colours and leafy prints will certainly liven up your space. Complement this with a couple of potted plants to get rid of toxins in the air and increase oxygen and humidity levels. If you live in a particularly dry climate, perhaps consider a humidifier for a number of benefits.
This is where Windovert has you covered. Our blinds and shutters make it easy for your home to be bright and breezy. You’ll get fresh air flowing through your home while being able to limit direct sunlight and better control indoor temperatures. Having wide-open windows will also draw your view outdoors to the natural beauty that surrounds you. Take a look at our range of blinds and shutters to find your perfect solution. We’d suggest light colours for feelings of calm and serenity.
Identify the places in your home that are used as drop-off areas for keys, phones or other items that we tend to carry at all times. Be it a kitchen surface or a hallway table, make sure to give this area special attention when cleaning by wiping regularly with a sanitising cloth, or even placing a bottle of sanitiser there to encourage your household to keep these items sterile and safe.
Get rid of anything that's “harshing your vibes” and make your space reflect the kind of energy you want to manifest. Your home should be your happy place, so make sure it resonates with your passions. If there are too many passions to compete within your household, then try to find a small area that you can make your own, perhaps create a nook where you can spend time on the regular to reignite your spark.
Scent is powerful. It’s the strongest trigger of memories and can also be a great mood booster. Diffuse essential oils throughout your home to create a calm aroma that makes you feel more relaxed. The best part is you can change your scents from day to day to add some variety and create the exact mood you desire; for instance, orange oil promotes positivity, while lavender is more soothing.
Life is busy and we often take little joys for granted, but these little joys do add up and can have a big impact. Put into practice just a couple of these points and your home will be all the better for it.
