Since the start of the pandemic, we have been spending more and more time in our homes. Nowadays, home means workplace for some of us. The children do not go to school… Our home is at the center of life now. If you want to make your home more enjoyable and healthier, we have 6 good recommendations that are easy to do.
1-Bring Nature to Your Home
Studies show that being surrounded by nature and greenery significantly reduces stress and anxiety. The same is true when you decorate your home with green plants. NASA research proves that chrysanthemum, ivy, palm, sail flower, and many more plants cleanse the ambient chemical air and help reduce indoor toxins. These plants also increase sleep quality by releasing oxygen during the night. In addition, nowadays green plants have an important place in decoration trends.
2-Refresh Your Home’s Atmosphere
with Aromatic Fragrances
Just as a vibrant flower bouquet adds freshness to the atmosphere of our home, home scents appealing to our senses increase the relaxing effect of our home’s ambience. Fresh essences that you can use as room fragrance, incense or censer will relieve your soul from stress.
3-A Natural Lighting Instead of
a Powerful One
The blue light emitted by computers has an effect that makes our eyes tired when we work for very long hours and causes discomfort such as headaches. Natural light minimizes these problems. Working in diminishing light in the evening will also require you to pay more attention, tiring your eyes. Therefore, instead of strong and direct lighting, you can distribute the light source with auxiliary lighting. You can create a dim environment with light that does not tire you such as a table lamp, floor lamp and scented candles.
4-Change Your Working Space
from Time to Time
Creating various work environments in the house and working in different rooms at different times of the day will help you boost your motivation. Thus, it will be easier to avoid back and neck pain that may occur when you sit in the same place for a long time.
Don’t forget to open the window and watch outside and ventilate your room every now and then to avoid feeling stuck in the house all day long. Experts say looking 5 to 6 meters away for 20 seconds every 20 minutes is a good method to rest your eyes. If you have a balcony, you can take small breaks by creating a small sitting corner and sip your coffee in the fresh air while watching outside. A 10-minute break will be good.
Although you are all wearing loose and comfy clothes in our home, you can choose clothes that will make your look stylish and fit without giving up on comfort. You can always keep your spirits high by taking a shower and pampering yourself.
