Every once in a while it’s good to stand back and take an objective look at your home. Is it scattered with laundry? Overflowing with photos? Do you have mail piled up on your desk from weeks and months ago?
There is a psychology behind the way we keep our homes, from decor and accessories to habits of organizing and neatness. It not only reflects on you, but it may also be affecting your feelings and thinking. Our surroundings matter to us. When the outside world feels unforgiving, we retreat to our homes to find comfort. Home is a place where we can display what we find meaningful and beautiful.
Our home is emotionally connected to who we are. In design, emotions are often attributed to the most basic aspects of the house: “Steps to a happy kitchen,” “How to have an awe-inspiring entryway”, “Create perfect mood lighting.” The process of creating a space that we connect to emotionally is as varied as the emotions themselves.
For example, did you know that bright colors — vibrant shades of green and blue, yellow, and orange — provide an expansive feeling. These are friendly, happy colors that encourage communication and are therefore especially welcome in the dining area and kitchen. When it comes to being organized at home, this can have a beneficial effect on your lifestyle. Being organized offers a slew of benefits. It gives you peace of mind and saves you money since you can find and use what you own instead of buying more. It also helps you stay connected to others. When you’re disorganized, you may miss events or stop inviting people over to your home. Clearing up the space helps you feel more confident and capable and it saves you time.
Perhaps you need a change, a pick-me-up in your environment. Maybe you’re just ready to get serious about making a statement with your home for yourself and your guests. Your home is a portrait of your personality, and wellness should be reflected in even this aspect of your life.
