Conversely, many struggle with creating a home that promotes mental health. Here are a few ways you can create a home that promotes mental health!

 

Keep it Clean & Decluttered:

One of the best ways to keep and maintain a clean home is to declutter your space.

Lighting:

 

According to Raleigh Realty, natural light is proven to help boost your mood and energy levels. Therefore, it’s important to utilize the natural light from sources like your windows, to let sunlight in. Alternatively, you can also opt for LED lighting with similar benefits that mimic the hue of natural sunlight!

 

 

Consider Color:

 

The color of one’s home can have a significant impact on a person’s mood. According to Southern Living, utilizing color can help create a soothing environment in each room of your house. Here are a few colors to consider incorporating that can help boost your home’s mood!
