Boosting the Mood in Your Home Naturally

These days, many of us are carrying heavy mental burdens. So here are a few ways to support an elevated mood in your home naturally.

Bring in Plants

Living green things require our attention and care, which can have therapeutic effects. In fact, studies have shown that there is a bacterium in plant soil that can trigger serotonin, our “feel-good” neurotransmitter.

Create Space

Research shows that clean lines, uncluttered spaces, and open areas can promote feelings of deep relaxation. In addition, creating space in our physical areas seems to create space mentally, so ditch your unnecessary furnishings and keep it clean.

Choose Colours Intentionally

The colours we add to our spaces, whether in the form of paint or furnishings, significantly impact mood. Choose earthy greens, rich blues, and soft tones for reducing feelings of anxiety and depression.

Bring in the Light

There are many ways to increase the amount of light in your home. For example, keep curtains and blinds open, use mirrors to reflect more light from the outside, and use more lamps and candles. All of this will positively impact your mood and energy levels.
