With the holidays finally behind us, it’s time to gear up for the new year. For me, this is a great time to cleanse the house and get it ready for a fresh start. Whether I’m using the right colors or adding plants or running an Oil Diffuser, there are many ways to create a relaxing vibe in the home. Keep reading to find out how you too can create a sense of calm in your space.

Tame the clutter!

There’s something about a messy, disorganized space that just creates an unsettled feeling. When you take some time to tame the clutter, you can enjoy a calming mood in your home. Start by tackling your most-frequented rooms first, such as the kitchen, bedrooms, and living room. One trick I like to employ is to find storage solutions that also serve as decor, like a decorative storage ottoman or bookcase w/ doors.

Use an oil diffuser!

Setting a relaxing mood is a breeze with a great oil diffuser. I recently checked out the Easehold Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser and I’m totally impressed by its features. This ultrasonic humidifier features a 20-hour intermittent mist, 4 timer settings and 7 mood lights for plenty of easy customization options.

The sleek wood-grain exterior of the Easehold Oil Diffuser blends in seamlessly with the decor in my home office. Isn’t the wood grain totally chic?! I really love the 30-second intermittent mist mode of this diffuser. With a reservoir capacity of 400mL, the unit can run for up to 20 hours on this mode. Impressive, right?

I always like to add some essential oils directly into the reservoir to fill my air with a relaxing scent. I simply add 3-5 drops into the water in the tank. My favorite oils to use are lavender, geranium and peppermint. The timer can be set to four different settings (3H/6H/ON/30S). I like to use the 3H feature at bedtime and the 6H feature in the morning. There’s even a high/low mist control function and I love controlling so many elements of this diffuser. By the way, when the unit runs out of the water, it shuts off automatically.

By the way, I have been using this Easehold oil diffuser in my office and I can say that this unit is whisper-quiet! There are also 7 LED lights (they can be switched from bright to dim). You can use them as mood lights or nightlights.

During winter, the indoor air can get super dry. To add more moisture into the air, the Easehold Diffuser/Humidifier is a wonderful, stylish solution.
*TIP: If you want a thicker mist, simply remove some water from the reservoir. Yes, less water means more moisture!

Choose colors wisely!

Did you know that certain colors have a big impact on one’s mood? While some colors have an energizing effect, others have a relaxing effect. Colors can even affect your mood and energy. Colors that tend to energize are oranges and reds. Colors that tend to calm are grays & blues. If you’re trying to create a relaxing mood in a bedroom, for example, consider painting the walls gray or blue.

Set up zones for efficiency!

Ever feel like you are scrambling to prepare breakfast in the morning, running around the ktichen to gather supplies? Or when it’s time to wrap a gift, are you running all over the house finding scissors, tape, ribbons, and gift tags? Set up work stations that enable you to have everything you need to accomplish a certain task in one spot. For example, a coffee station would include coffee grounds, creamer, cocoa powder, cinnamon, sweetener, stirrers and more. A gift wrap station would include wrapping paper, ribbons, tags, cards, scissors, embellishments and more. By streamlining the work that has to be done, you will set the mood for a relaxed vibe.

Add plants!

Bringing the outdoors inside is a great way to create a calm mood in the home. In fact, there’s nothing better than adding some fresh, live plants to the home. I actually try to have plants in every room of my home. Incorporating some fresh greenery into the home is refreshing and easy. You don’t even need to add a huge plant; a simple desktop one would work just as well.

Open windows!

Did you know that indoor air can get toxic over time, especially during the winter when the HVAC system is constantly running? Be sure to open windows and let the fresh air get inside. The fresh breeze will help to calm the mind.
