How to Make Your Home A Place of Serenity

“Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You'll find what you need to furnish it - memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey.” -- Tad Williams

A home is where we head back to after a long day at work or a trip and it should be a place where you can have peace of mind. It does not matter whether you live in an apartment, a small house or a bungalow, you will want your house to be as homey as it can. Take a look at these simple changes which can help you achieve it.

1. Make your house your home

Fill your house with pictures of those close to you, flowers and sentimental objects. The positive vibe around your house will rub off on you and make it a cozy home to go come back to. Personalize the space to fit your taste and you will definitely feel the warmth.

2. Prepare your meals

Planning your meals and preparing lunch for the next day can save money as well as promote healthy eating. Less greasy pizza and more amazing meals = feeling great! You can have that home cooked meal everyday.

3. Let the daylight in

If you are in your house a lot through the day it is important to let in the light. Sunlight boosts the mood, kick-starts vitamin D synthesis and illuminates the room. Open up the windows to let some fresh air circulate in making you get that relaxing feel while lounging around in your casual clothes.

4. Unplug

Technology is great, but don’t let it get in the way of spending time with your loved ones. Nothing beats personal interaction – so put your phone down. Try to avoid yourself from constantly checking your social media accounts and emails when you are at home.
