Does your home have a happy home vibe?


Your home is your haven. If it does not feel that way right now, you need to change that.

Luckily, there are lots of things you can do to give your home a happier vibe so that you, your family, and your friends will all love spending time there. So, let’s take a look at a few of them right now…


Fill it with things you love


One of the best ways to give your home happier vibes is to fill it with thighs they love whether they be souvenirs from your many travels, photos of the people pets, and places you love, or statement pieces of furniture that you simply cannot take your eyes off. That way, every tie you look around, you will be looking at something that gives you joy.


Flood the place with natural light


Natural light has been shown to boost happiness levels, so the more light you can let into your home, the happier it is likely to be. If your windows are past their best, or you do not have enough of them, use a window replacement service to replace old windows and add a few new ones. If it’s not possible to get more natural light in, then switch to light bulbs that mimic natural light. You will get some of the same benefits.


Make your bed


Something really simple you can do to increase happy home vibes is to make your bed. When you take the time to do this each morning, can put you in a positive frame of mind for the rest of the day, and help you to gain more momentum to do what needs to be done throughout the day. Plus, at the end of the night, it’s always nice to be able to get into a neat bed.


Plant power


Nature has also been shown to have a positive influence on the happiness levels of humans, and a very easy way to benefit from nature in your home is to fill it with as many plants and flowers as you can manage to look after. As well as giving you a lift whenever you look at them, they will also help to purify the air around you, removing any toxins, so you can breathe more easily.


Play more music


Playing music you love is a great way to elevate your mood. These days you can even buy smart speakers that will enable your music to follow you through every room of the house.


Color yourself happy


Colors can have a bigger impact on your mood than you might think. For example, warm colors like yellow and brown can help to make you happy. Whereas cool colors like certain shades of blue and green can make you feel down. Of course, if you have a favorite color, regardless of whether it should technically make you feel good or bad, it will probably give you a lift to see it around your home.


Use Aromatherapy


You can buy aromatherapy diffusers for as little as $30 dollars.

Having a couple of them in your home is a good way to increase positive vibes. The key is to choose essential oils which have been shown to boost mood. These include sweet orange oil, sandalwood, bergamot, and jasmine amongst others.

As an added bonus, when you diffuse essential oils, you can be sure that your home will always smell amazing when you want to have guests around.


Aromatherapy is a great option to enhance mood and health. Enjoy these FREE recipes. They are appropriate for any brand of essential oils though my favorite brand is Melaleuca (for that and so much more).

Make it comfortable


It’s easier to be happy in your home when you feel as comfortable as possible. Anything that you can do to make your home comfier will definitely help to spread the happy vibes.

For example, investing in lots of cushions that you can cuddle up to, use to prop you up and use as pillows, and scattering them around the rooms where you like to relax is a good way to up the comfort factor, as is buying lots of blankets and throws that you can snuggle under when you’re feeling cold.


Get rid of clutter


Although you should definitely fill your home with things you love, it is not a good idea to collect things just for the sake of it. When your home is cluttered, it is a lot more difficult to relax. You will always be distracted by the mess. Consequently, you may spend too much time thinking about what you need to do about it. So, if you don’t need a thing, or if it does not make you happy to have it around, you should almost certainly get rid of it. Perhaps you can give it to someone else who will love having it in their home.

10 Tips to Declutter and Invite Happiness In

Maintain order


Once you have gotten rid of the clutter, you should try to set up a system so that everything is organized whether that means investing in a filing cabinet for your paperwork or ensuring you have enough hangers to keep all of your clothing safely hung up in the closet instead of your bedroom floor. The more organized your home is, the easier it will be for you to go about your day and that will undoubtedly make for a happier, healthier life.


Take time to enjoy it


Of course, there is no point filling your home with lots of happy vibes unless you take the time to enjoy them. So, once you have gotten your home the way you want it to be, make sure that you take time to sit down and relax once in a while, Have the kids or grandkids over, invite your friend around and fill your home with love, laughter and lots of joy as often as you can.

  1. Yes! I agree with you. Natural light has been shown to boost happiness levels, so the more light you can let into your home, the happier it is likely to be. If your windows are past their best, or you do not have enough of them, use a window replacement service to replace old windows and add a few new ones.

  2. I have too many things at home. So the first thing for me to do is to get rid of old stuff that never being used for years. I believe till then I would have a home full of atmosphere.

  3. Aromatherapy is so helpful to make a home feel fuller and happier! I really need to clean and light my candles but that’s a tomorrow’s problem.

  4. Great tips. I agree music, things you love and ensuring it doesn’t get too cluttered are all things that help contribute to the vibe. It’s important to not let things descend into chaos which can make it feel stressful.

  5. These are great tips. I especially love the ones about light and things that you love. Both of those can go an incredibly long way in upping your spirits.
