Since we spend so much of our time in the home, it makes sense to create the ideal environment for our well-being no matter what our life situation is doing at the moment. Create a clean, uncluttered environment, and learn how to use personal space to support well-being.
The children might have grown up and flown the nest, but that doesn’t mean the house is always empty or you have the place to yourself when you need it. It is important to have enough personal space in your life and to make sure you know how to use it to your best advantage.
Personal space means different things to different people. For some, personal space means a room in the home that is dedicated to them, but for others, it means the freedom to visit nature whenever they like. Discover what personal space means to you, and let it fuel your wellness.
Meditation is simple to learn and difficult to master, but you don’t have to be a master meditator to enjoy all of the amazing benefits. Meditation has been proven scientifically to alter thinking patterns in the brain and improve well-being, but it needs to be practiced regularly for results.
There are two ways to meditate, formally and informally. The formal method requires a meditation stool or cushion and dedicated time for practice. Informal meditation can be practiced anywhere; simply bring your attention to your breathing and your senses in your environment.
If you want to protect your well-being in the home, it is important to make sure your environment is clean. Dust and air particles can get into the lungs and cause breathing difficulties that affect health and impact every area of your life. Cleaning your home regularly is extremely important.
If you have carpets, you need to vacuum them regularly to prevent dust mites and air particles in the room – these can cause asthmatic conditions. And if you have an HVAC system, you need to invest in dryer vent cleaning regularly to protect the air quality and your wellness in the home.
When people retire, they think it will be the end of stress in their lives. There’s no question that much of our life stress originates in the workplace, but it doesn’t disappear completely after retirement. Stress can come from the most unlikely sources at times and take you by surprise.
If you want to improve your wellness and live a better quality of life in your later years, it is sensible to understand how to manage your stress even when the stress comes from an unlikely place. One of the best stress management strategies is daily mindfulness meditation.
Some people are never satisfied; after completing one project, they quickly move on to the next one, chasing their productivity. On the other hand, some people are always satisfied, without needing to add anything to their life. Which are you? Maybe you are somewhere in the middle?
