Cleanse the energy in your home and the air you breathe with elements derived from nature. NASA’s Clean Air Study found a number of purifying plants that remove traces of organic pollutants from the air. The presence of plants in your home will not only improve your air quality, but will also benefit your mental health. Patients at a clinic in Manchester, England have been prescribed plants as part of their treatment for anxiety in depression. Take of breath of fresh air without leaving your home by welcoming luscious green plants into your living space. If your thumb is far from green, try placing winding twigs into a vase, or acorns into a bowl to bring a touch of life into your decor.
Experience the captivating essence of nature in your own home through aromatherapy. Essential oils have been used for centuries to balance mood, boost the immune system, and promote mental well-being.

Essential oils like lavender, bergamot, and ylang ylang produce anti-anxiety calming effects. While rosemary, vetiver, and spearmint are energizing and influence focus and attention.
Travel beyond your senses in your own home by creating a sacred space that invites stillness and tranquility. Dedicate this space to enjoying quiet reflective moments over tea, yoga practice, meditation, or journaling. When designing your “Zen den,” intentionally select décor and design elements that bring you peace and feelings of spiritual wellbeing. Also, carefully consider the types of colors you choose as paint and accents. Colors can influence our thoughts and emotions, and choosing the right color depends on the types of feelings you want to manifest (read more about color and Chromatherapy here!). Hues like blue and grey encourage a sense of calm and are believed to reduce anxiety and stress. Whereas, brighter colors like yellow and red awaken the mind and promote creative thinking.
