I promised a little while back to talk more about the ways that I cope with stress and anxiety. Over the past few months, I’ve been focused on creating a safe, comfortable space at home – quiet, zen, natural, tranquil… all the good stuff that makes for a happy home. These small changes have taken me away from the chaos of life, and have helped me to calm down. It has honestly been – for me – one of the best ways for me to cope. There’s something about shifting the ambiance that can work wonders on your mood. I don’t expect this to work for everyone, because it’s important to find what works for your individual needs, but I’d like to share my experience. If anything at all, you’ll develop a newfound love for your home. That alone is worth it.
Hi friends :)
I’m writing this post with a smile plastered on my face because this topic came about in the best way. A few of you have mentioned how much you love the style and decor of my home. So yes, I am smiling! It took us a while to get where we are (almost 3 years now) and we are completely in love with the way it turned out. I am constantly adding new statement pieces and items that go with our care-free, bohemian chic vibe, and so far we’ve been pretty successful in doing so.
I thought I’d share a few ideas on here to give you guys some inspiration. If you are as in love with the idea of a boho-chic home as I am, take note. These are some of the major pieces that I believe add to the overall mood and ambiance at our place.
I love a full coffee table – from himalayan salt candles to crystals to books. I always think it’s interesting to see what someone puts on their coffee table. It can say a lot about that person! On mine, you’ll find a couple of my favorite books. I put them there so that when people come over, they can experience (hopefully) the same excitement and interest as I did when I found these books. All unique, and beautiful in their own right. I find inspiration in their pages, and I think you will, too.
Hi friends — this week has been mentally draining. While I love my job, it is definitely an atmosphere that takes a lot out of you (hard deadlines, approvals, you know). As someone who already suffers from anxiety, I have definitely been challenged with learning how to manage my stress better and how to disconnect once I step out of the building and into my home.
My sister (hi Tianna!) recommended that I order an aromatherapy essential oil diffuser. And that’s what I did… and it’s become my favorite thing in the world. Let me tell you about it.
