Our home is typically the place where we feel some sense of belonging and safety. Even if we go out to work or spend time or days away from home, home is always the place we come back to.
It’s where we should be able to relax, be at ease, feel comfortable, and be ourselves. We should be at home in our home.
Our home environment can have a very significant impact on us - whether it is positive or negative.
I’ll share a quick story. When I get home after a busy day and cook dinner, I am really tempted to leave cleaning the kitchen for the following day. And sometimes I do that…the thing is…that means that I wake up to a messy kitchen the next morning and I don’t know about you, but when my kitchen is untidy, my whole day seems to start upside down.
For me, starting my day with a clean kitchen just feels like starting on a clean page - I love it!
That is a simple yet perfect example of how our environment (even if it is a safe space) can affect us.
So, what can we do to create the perfect environment for us at home?
