Ideally, the home is a place where we can replenish ourselves with positive energy after a long, hard day at work. But there are still times when we can’t help but feel gloomy even inside our own homes. If this happens to you sometimes (or often), then it might be helpful to do some simple techniques to banish those unpleasant feelings away. Here are some simple things you can do to make sure there’s no place for negativity inside your home.

Get rid of the clutter

We’ve heard this many times, but it’s always good to be reminded: Clutter can cause a lot of stress, so if you want to rid yourself of unnecessary hassle, you should clear out all of that junk. Aside from causing stress, clutter can also drain your positive energy.

Remove anything that’s broken

Aside from your clutter, you should also throw out any objects in your home that may be broken beyond repair, which can also bring a sense of negativity into your space, because looking at those items can make you yourself feel broken.

Open your windows


One great way to feel refreshed inside your home is by letting fresh air into the space. Fresh air brings a plethora of benefits, from improved health and air circulation, to also freeing your space of stale air. Not to mention that you can save on power costs by allowing fresh air to cool down your home naturally!

Burn incense


There’s a reason why incense is such an important part of many spiritual and meditational practices. The practice of burning incense indoors has long been known to cause wonders to our health and well-being—aside from purifying and freshening the air, it can also reduce feelings of tension and anxiety, increase motivation, and relieve headaches.

Use calming colors


The color of paint that you use in your space can influence your moods greatly, so it’s important to be wise in choosing what hues to use. Calming and soothing tones like blue can help build a more stable and relaxing environment, as well as make a space look more open and welcoming.
