How to Create a Healing Home Environment
Promote good health with these home decor tips.
Are you in lockdown due to the COVID-19 virus? If so, you may be spending a great deal of time at home. Good news: You can use this to your advantage. By incorporating a few high-frequency elements into your home, you can create a wellness space that increases your energy and helps ward off illness.
Your surroundings send information to your brain using the five basic senses of smell, hearing, sight, taste, and touch. This sensory input triggers emotions that influence how you feel. This means that you can positively stimulate your senses to benefit your health.
Here are five feel-good ways to activate your senses at home.
1. Inhale energizing essential oils
Your sense of smell provides the quickest way to stimulate your brain; scents have an immediate effect, triggering memories and evoking emotions. Inhale the wonderful fragrances of pure essential oils for an instant boost that lifts your mood. sLavender, vanilla, jasmine, and pine have excellent relaxation and stress-reducing properties, while lemon, cinnamon, rosemary, and peppermint help with focus, concentration, and staying alert.
There are various ways to incorporate essential oils into your home. Warm them in a diffuser, add oils when cleaning, or put a few drops on cotton-wool balls, ceramic beads, or dried flowers placed around your home. When mixed with water in a spray bottle, essential oils give an instant spritz of freshness.
Essential oils all have high vibrational frequencies and create a delightfully scented home that lifts your mood, increases your frequency, and boosts your immune system.
2. Listen to uplifting music
Music has been used since ancient times to inspire and heal. It activates the whole brain and has a profound effect on our minds and bodies. The melodies, harmonies, and rhythms of uplifting music stimulate the brain. This affects our breathing and heart rates and boosts the production of feel-good hormones.
When life is challenging, listening to music that resonates with you will elevate your mood and make you feel energized (if you sing along, these effects increase). If you don't have a playlist of your favorite songs, then try using your phone or laptop to find high-frequency songs online. Fast paced songs with high-pitched tones and positive lyrics will give you the maximum frequency boost. Play these when you are feeling low for an instant energy lift.
Alternatively, turn your home into a tranquil haven with the solfeggio frequencies of soothing relaxation music that reduces stress and anxiety. You can live stream healing compositions that soothe your mind and body for improved wellness.
3. Surround yourself with comforting colors
Color is light reflected at us off objects. Every color has a different wavelength that is interpreted by our brain, creating a unique physical and sensory response that affects our moods and influences behavior.
Bringing beneficial colors into your home does not require re-painting your walls. However, if you are suffering from lockdown boredom, perhaps this is a good time to facelift a few spaces. Alternatively, introduce color with accessories like throws, drapes, and cushions or try vibrant flowers and plants for a splash of energy.
Bright, warm colors like orange and yellow are uplifting, while cool colors like blue and green are calming and relaxing. The color green has healing power and is considered to be the most restful and relaxing color for the eye. Include some green in rooms where you spend a lot of time to promote relaxation, comfort, and togetherness.
4. Tantalize your taste buds with fresh produce
Fresh fruit, vegetables, and herbs have higher vibrational frequencies than processed foods, as they contain the energy of the sun. Incorporating more organic produce and filtered water in your diet will help to raise your energy frequency and boost your immune system.
Fresh herbs have higher vibrational frequencies than other foods and are a healthy addition to your home. Growing herbs on your balcony or windowsill is uncomplicated and will add flavor and energy to your meals. Many other leafy vegetables also grow well in containers and vertical planting is a great way to save space.
Preparing delicious meals using local, seasonal produce feeds your mind and body with positive energy. Using home-grown fresh herbs makes the experience even better.
5. Wrap yourself in softness
Touch is an important sense, and humans need a loving touch to thrive. Touch can evoke emotions in the same way as scents and music. It is also the least understood sense, but scientific research shows that most humans enjoy soft textures and feel a sense of calmness when wrapped in a cuddly blanket.
Add soft, comforting elements to the spaces in your home where you spend a lot of time. If you suffer from stress or insomnia, try a weighted blanket. These blankets are designed to mimic the feeling of being hugged, like a cocoon, thereby reducing anxiety and easing insomnia.
However, we all respond differently to touch, so pay attention to how the objects and surfaces in your home make you feel and add more of the textures you enjoy.
Your home is your haven and can improve your health. While in lockdown, surround yourself with positive elements that activate your senses and make you feel good. Feeling great will boost your vibrational frequency and strengthen your immune system.
