It’s a new year and it’s time to revaluate your goals and where you are at overall. You want to cleanse, purge and clear your home for positive energy and wellness. Having a home with clean positive energy is a great way to enjoy your personal space.
The first thing is to clean out anything you don’t use or wear. When you are setting goals, it’s always good to adjust and revisit. Looking over all your belongings and getting rid of the things you don’t use and probably will never use is a great feeling. Giving these items away to someone who needs them is a wonderful way to repurpose and recycle. My rule is if I have not worn a piece of clothing or used some of my other items in more than a year then I consider getting rid of them. Of course, this doesn’t include special occasion items. It’s for every day things we use.
If you had a change in any of your relationships or anyone living with you, you may want to paint to freshen up. Giving your home a fresh coat of paint cleans out old negative energy and the color of the paint can change the feeling in a room. It’s important to pick colors that are soothing. It’s all about creating an environment that works for you and also so you can entertain family and friends.
As a builder in Laguna Beach and Newport Beach, I work on a lot of custom home remodeling projects along the coastline and they are very connected to the ocean and it makes them automatically tranquil. Whatever is in nature outside of your door will affect the overall feeling in your home. If possible, it’s always best to bring the outdoors in with larger doors and windows.
My motto is...“It all starts with a good plan.” To plan these changes make a list of what works and does not work. You can also gather photos of homes and rooms that inspire you. It’s easy to put together a list and once you assemble the photographs make a little folder that you can add to and adjust. The next step would be to find the right professional to help you to do the work. It’s all about finding the right person and team.
