How To Create a Calm and Orderly Home

In this increasingly manic world, it’s important that our homes can function as retreats from the chaos.
If they’re calm and orderly, then we’ll be able to be the same; though it doesn’t always feel like it,
we’re mostly a reflection of our homes; someone with a messy, disheveled living space probably has
the same type of mind. Someone with a calm and orderly space...is probably calm and orderly! It
doesn’t matter which you are, but if you WANT to have a tranquil mind, then a tranquil home is in
order. Below, we take a look at how you can achieve this goal.

The Minimalist Approach


You’ll have heard of minimalism, because it’s been growing in popularity in a big way in recent years.
And it has been growing in popularity for a reason: it helps people to relax, and feel more in control of
their home. The key part of this approach is to have as little as possible. You might be naturally
inclined to hoard those items you haven’t used in years, but if you’re not using them, then
they’re just occupying a piece of mind that would be better if it were free. So go around the home,
and get rid of anything non-essential that you don’t use anymore. Your home will be clearer and
calmer in no time.


Feeding the Senses


You’ve got five senses...how many do your home feed? If you play into your smell, touch, and sight,
then you’ll be moving in the right direction when it comes to having a calming living space. Add
scents to your home by investing in a cold air diffuser; make sure it’s visually appealing by having
the right atmospheric light in each room; and load up on those soft, high-quality blankets and throws.
With them on your side, you’ll have created a home that is in tune with your body, a key aspect of
living with serenity.


Tech-Free Spaces


There’s no shortage of tech that you could have in your home, but should you ensure that everyone
room is connected all day and night? Not necessarily. Technology isn’t always conducive to a relaxed
atmosphere. If you’re just watching television or scrolling through Facebook, then your mind’s going to
constantly abuzz with activity. As such, look at creating tech-free rooms, spaces where you’ll just read
or otherwise relax, away from your buzzing phone.


Go for a Deep Clean


Most people are pretty adept at keeping things clean on a surface level, but a deep clean that washes
away the build-up of all the dirt and grime that’s accumulated? People are less inclined to do that.
But it really is worth it if you want to have an orderly home. If you don’t have the time, look at hiring a
cleaner. Most are more than affordable and will clean much more in-depth than you can.


Bring the Outdoors In

Finally, get some plants! They’ve been shown by science to reduce stress levels and all-around make us feel good. Plus, they’re pretty special to look at….
