Everyone Has A Unique Version Of “Feeling At Home”
Everyone has lived a different at-home life and has various goals they want to reach.
Some of us are used to living alone, others with family, and some live with friends.
Regardless of how we’ve been brought up and where we currently are, each of us has a dream living situation.
It can be regarding a specific city, a kind of home, or even colors on the walls and items for decoration.
The possibilities and ideas for a living space are endless, so it can be a bit overwhelming to think about at first.
However, the universal thing for everyone is that we want to feel good at home, wherever it is and however it looks.
Here we share some ideas on how to make the place we live in one which feels cozy and fresh.
Good surroundings are the foundation of the universally desired cozy feeling our homes can give us.
We are not talking about surroundings like neighborhoods, people, or shops, although they are not any less important.
What we mean is the basic qualities each home has to have in itself to be a safe and relaxing space.
Fresh air and sunlight are nature’s best relaxants.
Whether we live in a skyscraper in a big city or a caravan parked next to the sea, having fresh air and natural light makes the body feel tranquil and safe.
A myriad of studies has proven that natural environments boost our vitals and that even simply feeling the sun rays on our skin can be therapeutic.
So regardless of style and exact location, being able to feel the fresh air and sun is always a good idea to make yourself feel better at home.
The following topic isn't exactly what you may think.
Some people feel good having a few items neatly packed or having everything color coordinated.
Others thrive in creative chaos.
Both can be equally good depending on the person and their preference.
Therefore, to have an organized environment, in this case, does not necessarily mean using organizing methods.
The meaning it holds is in accepting and maintaining the version which suits your needs.
If you are someone who thrives when surrounded by many items, who would get their motivation and inspiration from the creative environment of a painter’s studio - then make sure your home gives you that vibe.
Don't try to tighten yourself down and feel hopelessly disorganized as you try to maintain something that simply isn't your positive environment.
Instead, relish in your own creative chaos and enjoy every aspect of it as you make your home a place suited for your needs.
And if you’re someone who loves simplicity and orderliness, then allow yourself the time to coordinate every item you have in your home.
You shouldn’t feel bad about finding comfort in order, nor should you purposefully try to avoid it because of social stigmas.
Simply speaking, find out what your version of order is because when you do, maintaining it will suddenly turn out to be much easier.
The People Around You
Regardless of whether you live alone or with others, you are never going to be the only person who has ever been in your home.
That being said, if you live alone, try to provide a space where you and your friends can gather and keep it neat and accommodating.
We as humans are social creatures, and other people are always a part of our lives, so keeping that in mind when designing our new home is a good idea.
After all, it can be very rewarding when your friends express how good they feel in your house.
On the flip side, if you live with others, make sure you have your own space.
We all need privacy and knowing that you have a space where you can relax by yourself after a rough day is vital for your well-being.
Not only that but finding balance in all aspects of living with other people and keeping the boundaries you have already set makes the whole experience a dream come true.
Overall, there are two types of people - some like living with others, and some prefer living alone.
Both can learn much from each other by asking for advice or sharing inspiration.
