Setting the mood, whether in your home, for a party or just for yourself, can be a game changer. A relaxing atmosphere is essential if you’re looking to unwind or set the tone for something… or someone. These tips and tricks will relax you in no time, and the idea behind the ambiance is to allow the user to relax.
Reorganize your environment
Naturally, the first thing to take care of is your environment and surroundings. The setting should please you, make you feel comfortable and at ease. If this is not the case, the relaxing atmosphere will certainly not be possible. Small changes can go a long way, such as adding art to your space and warming it up in some way. Move your furniture around and see what works best, add some comfortable and colorful pillows to the room. We also recommend adding a houseplant. Not only is it pretty, but it can also purify the air and bring a sense of nature into the room.
Keep things clean
A chaos-free and tidy environment is a must. Making sure everything is in its place, clutter is gone, and dishes are clean makes you feel comfortable. Cleaning and organizing can be stressful and overwhelming, but once it’s done, the feeling is unexplainable. Plus, you can always hire someone to come in and clean for you – once in a while, it’s a stress-free and worthwhile thing to do.
Candles and lighting
Lighting works wonders when it comes to setting the mood, with light tones and yellow bulbs creating a relaxing, laid-back atmosphere. However, a scented candle or several candles also have an effect. Candles create a relaxing atmosphere on their own. Adding one to your living room table or lighting a few when you take your bath creates an instant sense of relaxation. If you have a diffuser or an amethyst lamp, both add a sense of relaxation to any room.
You know it! Music totally changes the mood, enhances it and is a mood setter in general. This doesn’t mean you have to pull out all the classics and very low key or melancholy tunes, but rather anything that relaxes you. Whether it’s your favorite songs, old songs, or the top of the charts, it’s all meant to enhance your mood and put you in a relaxing trance. If you’re entertaining, the tone and type of music sets the mood for your event – keep that in mind. Lucky for you, no matter what your mood, Spotify usually has a playlist to match.
Turn off unnecessary technology
Constantly checking your phone, social media or email is a stressor. Set aside time for yourself and your loved ones. Disconnect and connect to your personal time – it is important to rest, for your body and mind. This is a major aspect of the 21st generation, as we let social media and our phones rule our daily lives; time without it is super healthy.
