7 Home Decor Choices That Promote Wellness

Spread wellness in your home before you even step in the door.

Home Improvement

Home is where the wellness is. At least, that's what it's supposed to feel like, right? No matter how much time we spend at home, we want it to be a place of serenity and peace; an oasis for us to just relax with our thoughts without a care in the world. Even with the pile of clothes on the couch, and the dishes in the sink that we wish Alexa could take care of for us, home can still be a place of zen, peace and balance.

It just takes a little more effort on our part. The fact that our homes will look more like we actually live in it compared to the way we wish it would look on our Pinterest board, is completely okay. That doesn't mean that we can't enjoy it, or that we can't…dare I say… relax in it. With these little odds and ends, you'll be able to spread wellness in your home before you even step in the door.

Homesick Ultrasonic Aroma Oil Diffuser

Amazon

Sometimes it's hard to find our zen at home because it doesn't feel like home. Whether you're adjusting to college life, a new city, or just a new place, the Homesick Ultrasonic Aroma Oil Diffuser features unique scents from different regions that can feel like home to you like the Tri-State bundle and California Classic Bundle. Whatever scent you choose, this diffuser is good for six hours and also has a cute little shape that you won't mind showing off as décor.

Himalayan Salt Lamp

Urban Outfitters

Not only are these cuties decorative, they can add zen and wellness to your home. Salt lamps are considered natural ionizers, and they've been said to help air equality in general, which is a win for your physical and mental wellness in itself. They also generate a soothing environment that can help you unwind at the end of the day. If you have trouble sleeping, the dimming feature on this lamp can be used at night to possibly help you fall asleep with a quickness.

I’m pretty sure that we’ve all heard the saying, “opinions are like buttholes” (yeah, I cleaned that up a bit) and everyone has one. Well, when it comes to the topic of advice, if we’re gonna be real about it, a lot of times all it is, is an opinion too. So, does this mean that we’re never supposed to ask for advice or take any when it’s offered?
