Your home should be a place where you feel happy and comfortable, your own place to escape from everything that life can throw at you during the course of your day.
It needs to be a place where you can leave it all behind, once you enter your front door and step inside to take a deep breath and “let it all go”…. it’s as if you have entered your own private sanctuary.
It is your personal zone where you can rejuvenate, feel relaxed, calm, happy and regain your balance and energy.
Remembering to focus and feel as much positive energy as possible, it’s best to find ways to create and cultivate a positive home environment, in order to make you feel relaxed and rejuvenated after your days work.
It will be your space where you can release negative energies you may have collected by others during your day, to regain your positive momentum and make you feel good, have a good night’s sleep and be more productive for the next day, as this usually helps with you having more creative solutions in order to move closer to your goals and vision in life.
The good news is that this may be easier to do than you realise.
How do you create positive vibes?
The first question that people ask is how do you create positive vibes and good energy within the home environment?
You may think that positive energy is just something that is generated naturally, that just appears at good times and seems to disappear when the environment is uncomfortable.
However, you will also be able to make your place feel more comfortable and pleasant by implementing a few simple changes.
The good news is that you can take steps to create some positive energy in your home.
It helps to create an environment where you feel comfortable, that aligns with your beliefs, and that leaves you feeling well, in sustaining your own healthy mindset.
Some of the things that can help with positive energy may be somewhat more obvious than others, for instance, choosing enjoyable and pleasant colors.
However, plants can also help your home to feel more positive, and so can the practise of feng shui and using healing crystals.
If you find that appealing, you can try surrounding yourself with beautiful crystals placed in strategic spots within your home environment and using certain colour schemes to help with setting the right mood, once you enter your personal space.
Let’s take a little look at each one in more detail.
Which plants give positive energy?
There are so many health benefits and reasons to have plants in your home that there really is no reason not to!
They are fun to grow and watch them bloom, and they give you a sense of responsibility (as well as something to focus on when your mind starts to wander).
The presence of greens in your environment is proven to enhance your well-being and boost your creativity. Any kind of natural plant can help you, and you might want to get something that appeals to you.
When it comes to choosing plants for positive energy, there are a few great choices.
If you pick a plant with a pleasant aroma, it can give you an extra boost.
- Lavender will calm you and keep you feeling relaxed
- Jasmine– for balancing your emotions and providing relief for anxiety for many
- Jade- for luck and peace and, as a succulent, easy to keep alive
- Sage– clearing negative energy and grounding yourself, with a lot of spiritual significance
Any plant can work well for you as long as you like it. If you have never had one before, it’s best to choose something easy to keep alive.
Any green living thing will boost your positive energy, simply by giving you something that you need to take care of and put your energy into.
It also adds the healing element by ensuring that the air that you are breathing is cleaner and fresh.
So what colours bring good vibes & positive energy?
Many people choose colours because they like the way that they look in their space. This is important however, colours can do so much more than that.
Yellow is known to provide you with happiness and warmth; after all, it is the colour of the sun. Touches of yellow can be positive and optimistic.
Blue will help you to feel confident and ready to face whatever the world wants to throw at you that day, as a color that relaxes and increases creativity.
Green is another excellent choice as it is known to help you to relax and feel positive too.
Of course, you need to make sure that when you choose colours, they make you feel great and suit your sense of style.
You can also try to balance some of these brighter colours with more neutral colour schemes if you are worried that they will be too overpowering, as big bold colours covering a whole room can actually tire your brain and make you feel overwhelmed.
You could even use smaller touches and accessories, like pillows, posters, candles, or anything else to add the colour of your choice, which is a subtle way to bring happiness, light, and brightness to your home.
