If you’ve been feeling low lately, there’s every chance that your home could be to blame.
Of course, this might not be the case – if you’re unsure, you should probably visit a doctor. There could be a whole host of underlying issues; anxiety, depression, and even what you’re eating could be playing a huge part in how you feel.
However, it’s always worth looking at your home to see if it could be to blame for your mood. Below, we’ll take a look at what could be going on
Dust And Allergies
If you have too much texture in your home, dust and allergies could be stopping you from feeling like your best self.
Texture is important if you want to ensure your home doesn’t look boring, but you also need to be mindful of anything that might make you feel a little ‘off’. This is especially important to bear in mind if you have pets, as their hairs could be getting stuck in the fibres.
Not Enough Natural Light
Natural light is one of the most important things for health – if we aren’t getting enough of it, we’re likely to feel depressed and experience a low mood.
By letting in more natural light you’ll be able to brighten up your home, make it look more spacious, and improve your mood at the same time.
If you have overdue repairs playing on your mind, then you’re going to feel a little uneasy. You should deal with repairs, however small, as soon as you notice that they are an issue.
Appliance repairs are especially important, as broken appliances can be dangerous, putting your health in danger. Not only that, they can be bad for the environment. Make sure you keep an eye on the repairs that need doing and stay on top of them as well as you can.
Outdated decor could be the reason you’re not feeling great in your home. The things we surround ourselves with really can play a part in how we feel, especially things like colors and accessories.
The colors you use should make you feel good, so make sure you incorporate colours that make you feel happy and/or relaxed.
Ensure your accessories bring you joy, too, and you’re not just displaying them because you think you should or because they were a gift. You should only display things in your home that you love.
Stale air might be the reason you’re feeling low. Open up the windows and doors and get that air circulating properly, especially if you use a fan.
Many candle brands contain paraffin wax, which creates highly toxic benzene and toluene when burned. This is the same as what is found in diesel fumes!
Use aromatherapy oils and sprays instead, and they will be far better for your health. Some even say that aromatherapy oils help to lift their mood instantly.
