Even though our heat was back on again¬†this morning, I’m in the midst of springtime frenzy…in a good way! After living with clutter and randomness for the past couple of months I was finally able to take a day to just clean and it felt so good. As I vacuumed up piles of dog and cat fur and reorganized furniture, the stacks of DVDs, and waiting laundry, I could feel old gobs of worry and unease being swept away with it. My mental and emotional states relaxed and I could breathe easy again.

It’s around this time that hardware stores start advertising their goods with a push. Once we’re able to open our windows without letting in snow, they know¬†many of us go into action mode¬†to freshen things up. If you find yourself in that mode as well,¬†but want to keep your goal set on easing stress, you may be interested in this article offering 10 Decorating Tips for a Stress-Free Home. I especially like tip number 7, “bringing the outdoors in.”¬†This¬†led me to another nice article¬†on the Healthiest Plants for Your Home. Since I have a few peace lilies it looks like¬†I’m right on track!

The truth is that our house represents our feelings and thoughts at some point. A clean and practical home is a reflection of our steady life, while a messy one reflects our chaotic behaviour.

A clean home will keep us more optimistic and the Qi of the world will run more effectively making us more ambitious and active.

If you have pets in your home please check if your house plants can cause any harm to them. Peace lilies , which are mentioned in this article, are very toxic to pets if consumed. Just want our furry friends to stay safe!
