Anxiety A to Z

How to create a happy ambience at home

Soothe my Mood

Cleanliness
The most boring tip, but perhaps the most critical is cleanliness. A messy home can lead to a messy mind. So, set aside a few minutes for cleaning every day. This doesn’t necessarily mean scrubbing the floors on your hands and knees. Just make your bed, pick your clothes up off the floor and wash that dirty glass.

Indoor plants
Indoor plants convert carbon dioxide into fresh oxygen and remove toxins from the air we breathe. This can ease tension, lower stress levels and improve sleeping patterns. Succulents and cacti are considered low maintenance, which means they’re suitable for busy bodies. They’re cute too! However, it is also believed that the bigger and leafier the plant, the more beneficial.

Sunlight
Exposure to sunlight has the ability to lift your mood by releasing a hormone called serotonin. This can have a calming effect on the brain, reducing feelings of anxiety. If you’re someone who spends a lot of time at home with the curtains drawn, open them up, Baby! Let the light shine.

Cushions
They increase comfort. Who doesn’t want to be comfortable at home?

Candles
Lights can be, well, bright. Set the mood and soften your mind with some candles instead. No, you don’t need a hot date as an excuse to do this. It’s 2020 and all about self-love. If you want more bang for your buck, invest in some lavender scented candles. They’ll have your place smelling great and help send you to sleep.
