Never underestimate the joy of relaxation

Our lives now are busier than ever before… and to me, that means that finding ways to quiet our minds and turn down the stress are that much more important. What better place to nurture that peace than where you live? Having a place that you can escape to at the end of a hectic day can help keep you sane. My goal is to create a home that feels like us and evokes positive energy that will help our sense of peace and inner joy come more naturally.

Living in a space you love should be non-negotiable

You can create an oasis anywhere you live. Whether you rent an apartment, a room, or own a house, there is potential for enhancement. The key is being selective about what you allow into the sacred place you call home and treating it as such. Say it with me, “My home is sacred.”

I’ve learned a lot about the importance of creating your own happiness and peace. I’m a firm believer that the connection between yourself and your home is vital to living in balance.

Bring the outdoors in

Embrace the season–yes it’s summer and that means fresh flowers and tomatoes… but come fall, I’ll be collecting cedar branches, bittersweet and acorns. Having elements of the outdoors is a natural way to improve your state of mind… they’re subtle reminders of relaxation. They can ground your space and inject color or texture. I spoke about this more in depth in this post.


Share in each other’s joys

My husband gets so much pleasure out of growing our food and I not only reap the benefits, but I love bragging on his successes and sharing in his proud moments. Home is more than a place… it’s a feeling and if you are lucky enough to share it with someone, embrace that togetherness. If you’re into vegetable gardening, you’ll have to read the full guide I created with him, here.

A home that creates happiness in your life is going to look different than mine and anyone else’s. We all crave different feelings and our homes require different functions. I hope this post sparks an idea to apply in your own home that will create a moment of peace or joy in your day to help lighten your load—remind you to take a deep breath. Let me know what you come up with.. and stay in touch!

    I loved your “The Importance of Home” blog post, and this one was just as good! I would love to take some inspiration from you for my own company if you would allow!
