Reducing stress at home
One of the most effective ways to reduce your stress at home is to trim your schedule. Limit the number of projects or commitments you take on at once. It’s ok to say “no” to things.
For many people, cutting down on clutter removes a lot of stress. Developing a system or a “family command center” that houses a schedule and essential things like keys, cell phone chargers, and a place to write reminders can eliminate the need to scramble around at the last minute to find items and remember appointments.
It’s important to have a designated space to go when we need to unwind. It doesn’t have to be fancy, just a particular room or part of a room that enables you to relax.
Your home’s physical environment can contribute to stress, and implementing cool and calming colors can help. Light blues, soft greens, and other neutral colors are known to reduce stress. Natural elements such as stone, wood, and plants can have a soothing effect, along with lamps that have dimmer switches.
