Life Guide

6.17 Your Home.

The environment in which we live significantly impacts our mood and energy levels. Our homes, where we spend a substantial amount of time, play a crucial role in shaping our mental and emotional well-being. A well-designed and organized living space can foster a sense of calm, boost our mood, and even enhance our productivity. Conversely, a cluttered and chaotic environment can lead to stress, distraction, and decreased energy levels.

Biophilic Design and Feng Shui are two approaches that highlight the importance of our living spaces. Biophilic Design incorporates natural elements such as plants, natural light, and materials into our homes. This design philosophy is rooted in the idea that humans have an innate connection to nature, which has been ingrained in our brains over thousands of years. Scientific studies have shown that exposure to natural elements can reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and improve overall mental health.
Similarly, Feng Shui, an ancient Chinese practice, focuses on the harmonious arrangement of space to promote positive energy flow. By optimizing the placement of furniture and decor, Feng Shui aims to create a balanced and harmonious living environment that supports well-being and prosperity.

A clean and organized home not only contributes to a pleasant physical environment but also has psychological benefits. Clutter can be overwhelming and mentally exhausting, making it difficult to focus and maintain energy levels. When our living spaces are tidy and well-organized, our minds can function more efficiently, allowing us to concentrate better and live more comfortably. This sense of order can help us conserve energy and achieve a state of flow, where we are fully immersed and engaged in our activities.

By incorporating elements of Biophilic Design and Feng Shui and maintaining a clean and organized home, we can create a living environment that supports our mental and emotional health, enhances our energy levels, and fosters a sense of well-being.

Exercise: Decluttering Session

For a week spend 15 minutes each day decluttering one area of your home. Focus on removing items you no longer need or that don’t bring you joy. Notice how a cleaner, more organized space affects your mood and energy levels.

“The objective of cleaning is not just to clean, but to feel happiness living within that environment.”

– Marie Kondo
