10 Solutions for the Perfect Stress-Free Environment


| 10/7/2014 11:20:00 AM


Our homes can serve as a utopia for our often busy and action-packed lifestyles. Home is a reflection of what's important to us and who is important to us, as well as indicative of our personal style and preferences, according to Robi Ludwig, a nationally known psychotherapist. It’s here that we spend an important part of our day, which is why it has such a huge impact on how we feel about ourselves.

In a very stimulated and sometimes stressful world, we need our home environment to be the place where we can take both personal and physical refuge; a stress-free environment. It’s here that we can balance ourselves and our psyches because our home is the place where we can relax, regroup and reinforce the best part of ourselves. It’s the first place we want to go when we need to renew our sprit.  

Transforming our homes into this stress-free, utopian zone might sound challenging, but it’s highly doable and vital for our mental and physical well being. Multiple studies show how even the smallest positive lifestyle change can help us to relax, take better care of ourselves and reduce our stress levels. These changes play a huge role in altering the quality of our lives for the better.

Fortunately, a lot of these healthful lifestyle changes are easily achievable. All it takes is a few deliberate and creative tweaks to turn our living space into a healthy place. And here are 10 easy tips to help you do just that: Turn your home into the stress-free, pleasing environment it can be.

Stress Free Environment 



1. Declutter and Simplify

Messy outside equals messy inside. Having a cluttered environment isn’t something that just lives in our home, it lives in our heads. A messy space impacts our self esteem. To successfully declutter and simplify, go through your home with an objective eye. Start with as little as five minutes a day. Get rid of what you don't need. Ask yourself, "Do I love it?" "Do I need it?" "Will I use it?" If the answer is "NO!", get rid of it!
