Do you remember when your mother would make you clean your bedroom? Mine would always tell me that the state of one’s bedroom reflected the state of one’s mind.
Years later, I realised that she was right —but also that there was more to it: Because the art of arranging and decorating your house is not just for magazines. It can also be a key to your well-being! Time to adapt the famous saying: a sound mind in a sound house!
And there are plenty of “little tricks” to achieve this, resulting from years of knowledge and experience —starting with a good spring cleaning. De-clutter everything and throw away useless items.
Next, move on to simple, yet effective tasks, like moving your furniture around. Time-honored rules have shown that the way you orient bed in the room has a direct influence on the quality of your sleep.
To really Zen-up your house, surround yourself with soft and comforting colors and materials. Dim lights and candles are the way to go —and then it’s just a matter of adding a couple of decorative objects, like comfortable cushions.
Harmonise the energy in your house and find a balance that really suits you. Within a few days these small changes will bring purity to your house, transforming your home into your sanctuary: the first step toward a more Zen life.
