Simple Solutions for a Peaceful Home

Home is where you can relax and unwind from a day at work, an early start or a long day out. It's where you come back to to recharge your batteries and make time just for you. I have mixed feelings when I get home as I love where I live, but there is so much that needs doing to it still. I love some of the spaces that I have created and it's a place that I yearn to be at the end of a long day, but there is constantly so many things that I need to sort out and that can make my home less than peaceful, but there are some simple things that can be done to create that peaceful vibe.

The most obvious option may be to renovate your house, but this can be costly and sometimes you make all these changes and it still doesn't change how you feel about your house. In the extreme case you might even consider moving and that can be even more costly and stressful to do so. You'll start thinking about whether you should get a new build or not and find yourself searching online for the pros and cons of buying a new build house. That new build house may still not bring you the peace that you need. You need to have a happy life, and that begins with creating a home that feels like a sanctuary. Below, you will find some simple solutions to achieve it.

Firstly, you shouldn’t overlook any of the rooms in your house. The bedroom may be where you sleep. The kitchen may be where you cook. But the conservatory still needs your attention; especially when you use it as a storage ground for old stuff that you haven’t quite gotten around to sorting. If you are leaving rooms in your home half finished or not utilised to their full potential, you’re creating spaces that are going to sap your energy and take away your peace. You should feel inspiration in every room of the house, so work on each room – one at a time – and remind yourself of what makes you feel good in each space. My goal is get my kitchen done before the year is out and I know that's going to make me feels loads better when it's done.
Next, you have to conquer the clutter in the house. Clutter creeps up on you when you least expect it and I should know. One moment, you’re leaving a letter on the table and before you know it, the dining table becomes the space you leave your post. It’s frustrating how cluttered a place can become without you really paying much attention.. The important thing here is that you need to have a space for everything, so that everything can be in its space. Put a plan in place, follow the Konmari method if you must, just get on top of the clutter. A clean home gives you a clean mind, and a clean mind is a peaceful and light one. Tackle your tasks and do it calmly – taking your time leads you to a peaceful outcome.
Lastly, you need to remove any bad juju from your home. Now lots of people don't believe in this but it couldn't be more true. Old photos of ex-partners or friends that you no longer have anything to do with. Memories attach to everything. The sofa you sit on is lovely, but the throw on the back of it is the one you wrapped yourself in when you sobbed into your pint of ice cream after your break-up. So, get rid of the throw! By removing all the bad luck from your home, you can feel far more peaceful and serene about the home that you live in.
It can be very easy to get overwhelmed by the mess around you in the home, but if you get yourself organised and get on top of it, each room can make you feel good and at peace when you spend time in them. You have to work out what you want from your home first, then take the small steps for the bigger picture. Adding in plants, expanding the natural light and adding soft furnishings and blankets to the spaces that need them can bring you a comfort that you never knew your home could give you. World peace may be out of reach, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t create an atmosphere of tranquillity.
