How to Make Your Space a Cozy Haven
Home is where the heart is, so it is important to make your little nest as comfortable and inviting as possible. Whether you are in a dorm room or decorating your very first house, you will want to incorporate just the right amount of love to keep a positive energy buzzing in the safe haven that you can always count on. Coming home from a long stressful day and lighting a few scented candles can make all of the difference in making your day a little better. Below are a few tips in how to make the most of your sacred space and make it as cozy as ever.
Encourage meditative thinking with scented candles
Relax the mind and boost your positive energy levels by turning your room into a meditation mecca. Pick up some candles and spice it up with picking some nostalgic scents that bring back warmhearted memories. Maybe the smell of cinnamon or peppermint reminds you have the holidays at Grandma’s house? Then pick up some familiar scents and sink into the contentment of fond remembrances with some candles.
Decorate your space for holidays
You will want your space to change up slightly to keep it familiar, while also a bit new every once in a while. One way to do this is to add at least one decoration for your favorite holidays. On Halloween, maybe add a pumpkin or some fall leaves to reflect the time. For the winter holiday season hang a wreath on your door or in your bedroom to keep those warm and fuzzy feelings flowing.
Use warm lighting
Lighting can make all of the difference in how you respond to your environment. Loud fluorescent lighting can cause stress and discomfort, especially within your own home. Consider decking your house or room in warm lighting. Use heavy lampshades or lower wattage bulbs to create a home-y aura. You can even get creative with occasionally using some colored bulbs to change the atmosphere. Try a green or blue hued light and see how it makes you feel.
Fill your space with inspirational imagery
You always want the room or area you spend most time in to be encouraging. Pepper your space with inspirational quotes or your favorite posters. Put up people, places, or things that inspire you and encourage your personal growth.
