Does the stuff around your house make you feel restless?
Your home is the perfect place to unwind and somewhere you can be completely yourself. That’s why it’s very important that your home interior makes you feel calm and not stressed or agitated. Does your house not feel like a home and does it instead make you feel stressed? That might be caused by the stuff you surround yourself with. Research has shown that the things in the list below can influence your mood and even make you feel unhappy.
Children’s toys: If you have children you can’t avoid having toys around the house. But surfaces that are covered in Barbie dolls, drawings and colouring pencils make for a messy house and this can make you feel very restless. Make sure your children put away their toys at the end of the day. Not buying as many toys might also help; they probably don’t even use half of their stuff.
Gifts or heirlooms: Of course, your aunt gave you that horrendous tea set with the best intentions, but that doesn’t mean you have to like it. We often feel obligated to place heirlooms or gifts around the house. But if it doesn’t make you happy,isn’t that actually a bit of a waste? So, just throw these things in the bin or, if you don’t want to do that, put them out of sight in the attic.
