Designing Spaces for Your Mental Health
8 Things Worth Buying
1 | Plants
Plants make a room feel more natural and inviting. The are so many options which makes caring for plants fun and challenging.
If you have them in your office you get to take a break from your normal tasks to water your plant & even occasionally re-pot them. They’re a good conversation starter too. A lot of people that come in to my office comment on my plants which has been cool because I’ve learned so much more about them.
“Interaction with indoor plants can reduce physiological and psychological stress compared with mental work. This is accomplished through suppression of sympathetic nervous system activity and diastolic blood pressure and promotion of comfortable, soothed, and natural feelings.”
2 | Inspiration
If you like quotes ↓
If you’re a visual kind of person then these are nice to have around.
I keep track of my debt on my corkboard. It’s a reminder & motivating to see the progress.
I also like to track goals or other random things.
You can put sticky notes on them for things you don’t want to forget too. I personally like the corkboard because it’s easier than changing all the individual letters. I also think its fun to personalize them, which the cork board allows for.
3 | Natural Light
These come in over 20 colors & about 15 different sizes. They help make a room feel fresh and airy.
If you still want your blackout curtains, you can keep those on there too (since these are so thin).
4 | Organization
Life is much easier when things have their own place. You will know where to find it.
The scissors… Think about it.
5 | Give Your Bed a Makeover
Brand new bedding is amazing. I personally need to learn to keeps my dogs out of mine.
6 | Lovely Smells
Did you know your smell is your strongest sense?
7 | Improve Functionality
I bought this and think it’s adorable. I can actually find spices.. Before I had them all in the cabinet that I couldn’t reach. I pulled them out & realized I have about 4 onion powders. But, slowly I’m using up the extra ones & it’s getting more organized.
8 | Make it Safe
I like these. But, I live right next to a trail & it creeps me out often. My house is visible from it & there aren’t any other houses around…
It gives me a little bit of comfort that a motion light might make people think twice about coming up in my home.
Home really is where the heart is. Take care of yourself by making your house into your home.
