4 Ways To Detox Your Home & Your Life
Every day we are surrounded by chaos and stress and it is imperative that we find that one place that will serve as our sanctuary. That place should be our home. Sadly a cluttered, messy and unclean space cannot help us relax, it can cause even more stress and anxiety. So in order to turn your home into a safe haven, you need to detox it and cleanse it, and through that process do the same with your life.
Here are some great ways you can get all the toxins and impurities out of your home and life for good.
Get rid of everything you don’t need
If you don’t know you have it, you can be sure that you don’t need it. Start with your garage, we tend to hold on to things that have no sentimental value and just take up space. They should be the first to go. Get the clutter out of your home, it is just making space feel smaller and at times, even claustrophobic. Don’t forget to do the same to your closet, remember the golden rule, if you haven’t worn it in the last two years, out it goes. You can rest assured that getting rid of unnecessary things will definitely feel a lot better than you might think. Clearing out your living space will allow you to clean up more easily and it will prevent a lot of the dust accumulation. So get going!
Detox your home
There are a lot of toxins around our home that we don’t even know about. So the best thing we could do is to avoid introducing new ones. Start by switching to non-toxic household cleaners, with the new technologies being used they are just as effective as your old toxic ones. Opt for quality floor rugs, they look great and will enable easier cleaning, unlike the wall-to-wall carpets that you cannot lift and that are notorious dust collectors, regardless of your vacuuming frequency. Make sure you air out your home regularly, it raises the oxygen levels in your living space and lowers the amount of your indoor air pollution.
Surround yourself with the things you love
When we talk about detoxing our home and life it also refers to the emotional aspect. Get rid of things that stress you and keep those that make you happy. So instead of that old couch that gives you back pain every time you sit on it, consider getting a 1 seater sofa that will go great with your living room decor and do wonders for your back. Put a few items that are sure to make you smile in every room in your home. It could be your kid’s drawings, some photos of family and friends or your favorite vase, anything that feels good to look at. At the same time get rid of those things that make you cringe when you see them. This will change the energy of your home to better suit yours and you will be able to enjoy spending time in your living space without the toxic energy weighing you down.
Raising your environmental awareness can do wonders for both your home and your mind. You will feel good about giving something back, and at the same time, you will make your home a healthier place. There are a lot of simple tricks to a happier, eco-friendly style of living, whether it’s switching from paper towels to reusable rags or taking your own bag when you go shopping, it is the little things that matter. Recycling is always a commendable option as is investing in reusable water bottles. By making these little changes you will feel a lot better while at the same time doing your part in preserving the environment you live in.
So there you have it, easy and simple ways to detox your home and mind. We should all remember that toxicity comes as much from the chemicals we use as it does from the thoughts we have. So it is equally important to cleanse them both and make our home into a real oasis where we can relax and rest on the daily basis.
