An ergonomic and organized home can help you fight stress and make you healthier. It might sound simple, but you will be amazed at how different you feel when your home has a healthier flow. You may even want to incorporate some Feng Shui in your home, for even more flow and relaxation.
If you plan to invest in some ergonomic furniture for your home to help increase your posture, your health, and even your productivity, you should start by getting your home organized. It’s a fact clutter can cause stress and anxiety, so it can be a great first step to declutter your home.
Start by making sure that all of your belongings have a home and that they make it to their home when they are not in use. If you have a plethora of items that you never use; donate them, sell them, or toss them out. One great trick to getting rid of small things is to pack them all in a box, with nothing written on it, and put them in the back of the closet. If after six months you cannot remember one thing that is in that box, donate it without opening it up.
It’s pretty likely you spend a lot of time sitting when you are at home. And if you are one of the many people that sit all day for work, that adds up to a lot of sitting, which has been proven to be bad for your health. That’s where adding ergonomic furniture to your home can help.
Ergonomic seating helps align your spine, for optimal health. You can also invest in some exercise balls to sit on, which are great for your core and for keeping your kids healthy as well (they’ll think they are fun to sit on). If you have a home office, you may want to invest in a standing desk, which really does a lot to cut down on the amount of time you spend on your butt!
Feng Shui is a way of opening up energy and flow in your home. At its most basic, it tells you how to arrange your furniture to increase the energy flow in your home, which can increase health, prosperity, and love.
Removing clutter is one of the first steps in increasing the flow of energy. The colors, the art on your walls, and even the amount of light you let in your home can make a difference. If your home gives you anxiety it’s definitely time to look up some Feng Shui tips.
Your home should be a place to relax and promote your health. Even if you work from home it should be a stress free, and healthy, place. Hopefully these tips will help you reorganize your home and find the sanctuary within.
