There’s no place like home. That means you should feel safe, secure and happy when you’re there. However, many of us don’t take full advantage of our houses as havens from the stresses of everyday life. We might think that as long as it has four walls and a roof, it’s sufficient. Yet when you take the time to make your home happier, you have more than a place to hang your hat. You’ll have somewhere you can recharge, re-center and refresh yourself. That can translate into a more positive outlook, better rest at night and a real feeling of comfort at home.
Fortunately, you don’t have to go all-in with a complete remodel of your home to give it a fresh environment. There are virtually limitless ways to transform the look and vibe of your house that will boost your happiness. For example, you can change a room instantly with a throw rug. Hanging family photos means you’ll be surrounded by happy memories. Creating a room or nook that’s all about you can be another great way to make your living space cheerier.
You should be more comfortable in your home than anywhere else in the world. See the accompanying infographic for additional tips.
