A home environment that supports wellbeing is imperative.

 

If your home has begun to feel like a chore rather than a sanctuary, it’s time to take control. It is time to create a home environment that supports your wellbeing and health.

Whether you are stressed by the clutter in your home or something such as water damage in the foundation, now is the best time to take action.

Maintain Clean Rooms 

 

A home should be a supportive space that improves your wellbeing and happiness. It should not be somewhere that makes you feel stressed. If you dread going home after work because there are piles of dishes in the sink or lots of clutter on the floor, take action. 

 

Maintaining clean rooms is vital to your mental and emotional wellbeing. If you feel like you don’t have time in your life to clean and tidy, you have options. Arrange a time to clean once or twice a week. Make the task enjoyable by practicing mindfulness or listening to audiobooks.  

Create Relaxation Spaces 

 

Even if you can’t keep on top of everything in your home, you should at least try to create relaxation spaces that are free from clutter and set up for relaxation. For some people, this could be a bath with candles; for others, it could be a reading space with cats and plants. 

 

These relaxation spaces can be set up within the home, a spare room is a perfect place to create a relaxation bonus room for yourself, but if you want more of a project, you might consider building a garden room outside to escape to in the evening or on the weekends.  

Treat any Water Damage 

 

Water damage and the appearance of mold in your home are sometimes unavoidable. Mold spores are always in the air; they float in through windows and settle in small groves. If the environment is warm and moist, or the temperature changes a lot, the spores start to grow. 

 

There are different types of mold. The mold you see in your bathroom can be treated using special chemicals, but if you have water damage in the timber of the loft or basement, it might need to be professionally removed. Contact a Mold Damage Restoration Services for details.

Improve Sleeping Spaces

 

If you want to support your wellbeing in the home, start with your sleep. Sleep is fundamental to our overall health, so if you are not getting enough sleep, you need to take some action. Start by making your bedroom as comfortable as possible, then think about the amount of light your get. 

 

Natural light is very important for our circadian rhythms, so if you work in a home office in the basement without any natural light, it will affect your sleep patterns. Make sure you get access to enough light through the days and use a UV solar lamp in the winter to maintain balance.   

Stock up on Healthy Food 

 

Getting proper sleep is high on the list of creating a living space that supports our wellbeing, but so is your diet. If you have high-fat food in the house, that is what you will consume; instead, buy some quality wholefoods that restrict your diet to eating healthy food most of the time.

  1. Great tips! Lots of people are not aware of these subtle changes but in a long run, they work wonders for your well-being – sleep, food, and cleanliness are the most important to me. – Knycx Journeying

  2. These are great tips! I agree with you that it is important that we create relaxation spaces. My mom and I call it our zen and it’s just the perfect spot to recharge and reflect.

  3. Great advice! Especially the part about creating relaxing spaces! They’re a must if you want to be able to use your home to decompress.

  4. Maintaining a clean room is very important, it contributes to the overall atmosphere of the room. And water too, so you have to check every now and then if it’s clean.
