Our home environment is where we spend most of our time and therefore can have a significant impact on our mood.
Whether you live alone, with a partner, or with a family, finding ways to create a happy home environment, is essential.
Here are five simple ways to make your home one that lifts your mood every day.
Display sentimental items around your home
As the saying goes, ‘Home is where the heart is.’ Having sentimental items around your home brings up happy memories. Whether its family pictures or holiday souvenir’s, these can help us to remember happy times and feel surrounded with love. Sentimental items like these turn a house into a home.

Spend money on things that cultivate experiences at home
Friends and family gathered around a board game sounds a little cliché, but these are the experiences that make a home. Even if you argue, you will be laughing about it later, and it will be a memory you treasure. Experiences are not just limited to boardgames. Perhaps you could buy some photo albums and finally get around to organizing your holiday snaps.
Create a Friendly and Safe Environment
A tidy home is a happy one. Being surrounded by mess and clutter hurts our mood. Tidying and removing clutter helps to make the environment safer and makes your home feel welcoming. Think about placement of furniture too. Having to squeeze around items of furniture does not lead to feelings of being relaxed, for you or your guests. Additionally, using fragrances in your home can create the impression of a friendly environment. However, avoid harsh chemical sprays and instead try an oil or wax burner, or other natural scents.
Keep Plants or Flowers in the House
Flowers and plants add color and personality to your home. Plants can also have a direct effect on your mood by purifying the air. If your green finger skills are lacking, there are plenty of small low maintenance plant varieties.
Remember the Extras
Don’t be afraid to put your personality into your home. Quirky and unusual objects turn a catalog style living space into a welcoming home.
