In many ways, creating a harmonious home life is a craft. Indeed, it’s somewhat of an art form with a little science and a defined strategy; yet, we often seem to believe a harmonious home life should be ours by default. The truth is we have to spend time and energy crafting it; in the same way we would craft the homemade scented candles that uplift our homes with their aromatic fragrance.
Here’s five ways to have a more harmonious home life:
1. YOUR DWELLING
This doesn’t have to be a fancy property, it can be a room in a shared house, or even a trailer, as long as you feel safe, independent and at peace.
This should be your “safe place” that you feel comfortable and grounded in. The well known saying “tidy house tidy mind” is true when it comes to crafting harmony; a clean, tidy, and well organised home has a significant effect on your emotional health and wellbeing.
Whilst your sense of home goes beyond bricks and mortar, it’s important to take care of the physical aspects to, for instance, you might have an intermittent electrical problem that distracts you on a daily basis, yet you’ve learned to live with it – but until you call in a company like ABC Home & Commercial Electricians to resolve the issue, it’s always going to be a niggling complaint that knocks of your sense of balance and harmony.
You don’t need to be rich in order to be stable. You do, however have to have an income. Whether this is a full-time job, a part-time job, or even welfare – there needs to be a secure and reliable income that comes from a stable source; meaning nobody has undue influence over your financial stability. Similarly, you need to feel on top of your finances, even if it’s the case that you start walking the long road to repairing your credit.
3. HEALTH & WELLBEING
Your health is your foundation. You can have all the money in the world, a beautiful home, and great relationships – but without your health, life has a tendency to feel very unstable. The term “prevention is better than cure” is true when it comes to having stability, as when you know you are keeping on top of looking after yourself, you feel more positive and stable about the future.
4. PERSONAL CARE
We are all taught the basic routines of things like cleaning our teeth each day, showering, and trimming our nails – but with such busy lifestyles it can be hard to stay on top of our personal appearance and nurture ourselves.
5. YOU TIME
With such busy lives it can be difficult to grab time for yourself yet it’s important you make time for yourself as if you’re depleted and exhausted the whole time, you’re likely to end up being grumpy, snappy and irritable. It’s therefore vitally important you take time out for yourself; whether this is a spa day or a simple one hour candle lit bath with your favorite magazine.
