Good JuJu means good energy. Learning how to create good energy within our home promotes balance and harmony which ultimately manifests in our health, relationships, and career. Our home should be a sanctuary, a place to retreat from the world and feel centered. By embracing a few simple habits, we can breathe life into our space, creating a happy, balanced reflection of ourselves.
Good Energy • Decluttering
Most people become overwhelmed at the thought of decluttering their home, but it’s actually quite simple. Start slow, take it one room at a time, and ask yourself these questions:
Do I love this?
Do I use this?
If I were shopping right now, would I buy this?
The goal of learning how to create good energy within our home is to surround ourselves with things we love, things that create good energy.
Good Energy • Entries
Our entry should be fresh and orderly. Jackets and shoes should be placed in a closet or cabinet. Simply adding live plants instantly welcomes good energy. This gives our home an organic, flowing vibe. According to a study by NASA, adding air-purifying plants to our space reduces the number of harmful toxins by a whopping eighty-seven percent.
Good Energy • Kitchens
Kitchens are the space that nourishes us. It’s where we gather to prepare food and eat, so it should always be decluttered and sparkling clean. We should keep as much counter space clear as possible, limiting small appliances and any dirt/dust collectors.
Good Energy • Dining Rooms
The dining room is a place to gather and nurture relationships. There’s something about sharing time and food with those we love that is sheer magic. Optimizing the energy of our dining room might include hanging a photo collage next to the dining table and adding a centerpiece of fresh flowers or a bowl of fruit.
Good Energy • Living Rooms
The living room has a dual purpose: to relax and entertain. Whether we want to be restful or social, creating good energy in our living room requires furniture that is in proportion to the space, cuddle-worthy seating, textures, natural light, and zero clutter.
Good Energy • Bedrooms
Our bedroom should promote a harmonious flow of peace and calm. Storing things under our bed or at the top of our closet creates stagnant energy. Out of sight is not out of mind. When revitalizing our bedroom, we should include fresh linens, essential oil diffusers, no more than three nightstand items, and ideally no electronics.
Good Energy • Bath and Mud Rooms
The bathroom and laundry room share a common purpose, to refresh. The most important way to create a beautiful bathroom or laundry room is to keep it uber-clean and stocked with essentials.
Chances are if we’re feeling heavy or stuck, the culprit is in the nooks and crannies of our home. Where there are dust and dirt, there is energy blocking stagnation. Spending a few minutes each evening refreshing our home sets the flow for the next day.
Good Energy • Workspaces
Our workspace should reflect the energy we want to project to the world. When possible, open office windows to let the circulation and creativity flow. If open windows aren’t possible, adding an air purifier or Himalayan salt lamp gets the air flowing and glowing.
Good Energy • Littles
Children’s rooms should reflect a healthy, safe, and loving environment. Contrary to popular belief, clutter in children’s rooms can be practically managed. Think organization systems like cubbies with baskets, air-purifying plants, essential oil diffusers, and imaginative artwork.
Good Energy • Verandas
The veranda should be clean, comfortable, and inviting. The invigorating energy of water features, plants, and wind chimes add to the harmony of the natural surroundings.
Good Energy • Exteriors
The exterior energy of our home is equally as important as the interior. Negative energy on the outside cancels out the good vibes we create on the inside. Keeping it clean, adding a water feature, rock garden, and healthy greenery helps the positive energy flow.
Good Energy • Building
The bones of a home are all about well-balanced, flowing materials. Homes built with exposure to natural light are linked to a more positive state of mental health. On the flip side, darker homes utilizing artificial lighting are linked to depression and poor quality of sleep. When designing a new home, every room should access plenty of happy, natural light.
Good Energy • Organizing
Organizing a space brings harmony to our home and mind. Some people think if they buy containers to organize the stuff, they’ll feel better. Here’s the thing, if you have to buy more stuff to organize stuff, you simply have too much stuff. Letting go of unloved and unused objects is liberating. Adopting a practical organizational system for pieces you love + use eliminates stress and welcomes gobs of good energy.
