7 Simple Ways to Turn Your Home into a Haven of Peace and Tranquility ...


There are some simple ways to turn your home into a haven of peace and tranquility.

Your home should be a place you can return to after a long day at work and unwind or a place where you can feel zen-like all day.

Of course, in today's frenetic world, that's not always possible, but have you ever thought about the ways in which your living space could be affecting your mood and energy?

Obviously, Feng Shui principles can help alter the energy in the home and ensure that the spaces in which you live and work are conducive to relaxation and peace of mind.

Here are some simple ways to turn your home into a haven.2

1. Simplicity is the Key

Simplicity is the Key

A tidy space equals a tidy mind!

Well, that's what my mum always used to tell me, but I think that was just so I would go and tidy my room.

She had a point though.

Ensure you keep clutter to a minimum because it can have a jarring effect on the mind if there is too much going on in one space.

I find that if my desk is cluttered or I haven't cleared my dressing room for a couple of days, I start to panic.

There are so many ways you can make effective use of storage space to keep rooms tidy so there's no excuse.

I'm not talking Monica's secret cupboard in F.R.I.E.N.D.S though - there are many other storage solutions.

For inspiration see AWS's Kati Blake and her fabulous article about ingenious storage solutions which will help turn your home into a haven.


2. Solid as a Rock

Solid as a Rock

Stones, pebbles and rocks are great in the home and can be a real feature which remind us of the awesome power of nature and connote solidity, stability and strength.

Stones also symbolise the earth and its grounding qualities which is why they are great in areas of contemplation and meditation, and why they are used to recreate the Zen gardens of old.

There are many wonderful varieties of stone with different colours and textures to suit all tastes and even a simple urn filled with pebbles can help bring that touch of natural mysticism into your home.
