Whether you’re a young person trying to set up your first home or someone who’s just moved into an assisted living community, having a more youthful energy in your living space is a great way to feel refreshed and re-energized every time you enter. But sometimes, it can be hard to know how to get rid of an older, stuffy energy and bring in something new to the space. So to help you see how this can be done, here are three ways to have a more youthful energy in your living space.
Bring In Some Romance
While romance isn’t something that’s saved for the young, adding a little bit of romance to your space can help it feel more youthful and exciting.
One great way this can be done, according to Olivia Heath, a contributor to HouseBeautiful.com, is to use more curved lines in your furniture and design. Using curved lines evokes the same energy as bodies do, which can make your space feel like it’s more alive. Additionally, the scents that you use in your room space can also help make it more romantic. To do this, try to add more scented flowers to the space or include candles or other items that will give off the fragrance of flowers.
Embrace Positive Affirmations
Being young means having all of your opportunities ahead of you, but many of these opportunities will only come to fruition if you’re willing to change, learn and grow.
With this in mind, you can bring these same feelings into your space by reminding yourself that change and growth can and will take place. This can be done by adding plants to your space or by keeping written reminders around your house. For example, Suzannah Weiss, a contributor to Bustle.com, shares that having some of your favorite affirmations around the house so you can read them whenever you need a pick-me-up can help you feel more youthful by welcoming growth and change.
Reconnect With Nature
Nature welcomes youthful energy better than almost anything else. Knowing this, if you can find ways to reconnect with nature in your home, you’ll also be able to experience a more youthful energy there.
In addition to the ways mentioned above to bring more nature into your house, Community Homecare shares that you can also let the outdoors in by keeping your windows clean and open. And to invite even more life and nature into your space, consider putting a bird feeder up outside your window so you can watch life taking place outdoors, too.
If you’re wanting to bring a more youthful and happy energy into your living space, consider implementing some of the tips above as a way to do this.
