holding houseFor those of you who have followed me for any length of time, know that my philosophy of interior design reaches beyond furniture, color, accessories, etc. It’s about how we feel in our home and does it support how we really want to live.

Our surroundings play an important role not only in how we feel, but also how we behave in all realms of our life.

Here are 10 ways to make your enviornment support the best you.

  1. De-Clutter—Do whatever it takes to bring order to your space. Clutter is the enemy of clarity and relaxation.
  2. Add Flowers/Plants—Living things help clean the air and clear the brain. Be sure to keep them fresh.
  3. Keep Relationships Clear—Conflict with anyone living in your home can poison even the most beautiful space.
  4. 4)  Eat Healthfully—What you put in your mouth has a profound effect on your energy and your mood. It truly is nature’s best medicine.
  5. Take Mental Health Breaks—Take a quick walk outside, do some stretching, or sit quietly and breathe. Doing so regularly can do wonders for your state of mind.
  6. Get Inspired—Hang artwork that you love, light candles, bathe your walls in color. Whatever keeps your spirits up and your life moving forward.
  7. Set Up Systems—Whether it’s a system for laundry, or taking phone messages, systems save time and money and help everything run smoothly.
  8. Work On You—Developing yourself and your environment can’t help but improve everything else in your life.
  9. Exercise—Everything feels and goes better when you’re getting regular exercise, even just a 20 minute walk a day.
  10. Use Humor—A little laughter goes a long way to create a positive, and beautiful environment.

Until next time…
