Get rid of the junk to relieve tension.
After a long day, it’s tempting to turn on the T.V. and unwind. However, this can quickly end up into a routine. While you may not want to face the piles of clutter that you have around your home, letting them go unsorted can quickly add to your stress levels. If you thought doing daily chores was therapeutic, you should know that de-cluttering your home can relieve you of all sorts of stress.
Undo stress through your environment with these tips!
Let it go. When you’re organizing your belongings, you may realize that you hold onto more items than necessary. Do you really need that book or those pair of shoes you’ve never worn? Hold each item in your hands and, if it doesn’t bring you joy, donate it.
Add green plants and fresh flowers. Living plants add fresh oxygen while removing toxins from the fresh air. Adding fresh, living plants into our home is especially important in fall as we open our windows less often. Beyond plants’ air-purifying effect, tending to plants or arranging flowers is a healthy way to let go of stress.
Eat real food. When we’re busy and stressed, it’s easy to turn to junk food out of convenience and comfort. By doing this, your health can suffer dramatically. Stock up on greens, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains that are packed full of the vitamins and nutrients that you need to de-stress healthily.
Leave it at the door. Make a point of putting down everything that you have in your hands as soon as you come in the front door. This will signal a shift from outside worries to the comfort of home.
