We are our environment, and our environment is us. It’s easy to think of it as something separate from ourselves, but without it, we couldn’t live. For this reason, people often become attached to their surroundings. It might be that you feel a certain affinity for the area in which you were raised, or the house that your family has owned for generations.

However, it’s also true that the state of our environment influences how we feel about it, and how they contribute to our wellbeing. Trying to work in a home office with papers strewn everywhere, unkempt and unclean, will often totally reduce your ability to focus well.

So, this means that we can fashion our homes in a nourishing manner too, provided we hope to make the effort in that direction. But how can we better understand our responsibilities to this end, and what efforts can we make to ensure our home is supporting us? It sounds like quite a very wishy-washy pseudoscience to broach this topic, but actually, pursuing this can have very real (and beneficial) effects on your life. Here’s why, and how:

Lovely, Abundance Of Comfort

It can’t hurt to have a few comforting areas in your home that utterly nourish you. From investing in a memory foam set of pillows for your bed, to a beautiful footrest for your living room sofa, to a gorgeous and comfortable wicker and padded reading chair next to your bookshelf, indulgence is often appreciated, especially in the midst of winter. Candles, themed lighting, comfortable throws, these are the little things that make a home a home.

Bright, Airy, Breathable

A home is often comfortable and nourishing when it’s bright, airy and breathable. Investing in a great air purifier can often help a home, especially those in an urban environment, feel more comfortable than usual. You may also decide to purchase light curtains that allow for an immediate entrance of your natural light without dampening its spread, as well as having your windows cleans quite regularly to encourage people to come in. Bright airy and breathable is more than a mantra, in fact, it can simply be achieved through using odor-busting and freshening automatic fragrances from time to time.

House Plants & Greenery

We’re hardwired to respond to nature and open green spaces in a pleasing manner. Simply living near a park can, according to researchers, reduce your sense of stress to a significant degree. However, we need to live indoors. That means bringing in beautiful plants and learning how to care for them, like in this fantastic peperomia care guide, can help you bring nature and idyllic beauty into your home. That in itself can help you feel more comfortable, more connected, and more relaxed when in your home - and it can also help your space look much more visually appealing and inviting.

With this advice, we hope you can fashion your home in the most nourishing manner.
