When life gets busy, you will want some easy ways to recharge your mental health and relax at home. Luckily, many of these simple activities can be done in the comforts of our apartments in Baltimore. Implementing a few simple ideas will transform your home into relaxation central. 

Mix in Music

Music is an excellent stress-reliever. It has the ability to lift your spirits and calm your fears. Put on some background music while you cook meals, exercise, or do other household tasks. You can go old school with a record player, or stream your favorites to your smartphone using Pandora or Spotify. Here’s a list of 10 songs that are some of the most effective stress relievers!

Soothe Yourself

Infusing your home with soothing scents can be an effective form of self-care to help ease stress. Your sense of smell powerfully affects your emotions and moods. Aromatherapy can trigger peace and happiness in your mind. Psychology Today suggests trying lavender, lemon, jasmine, bergamot, ylang ylang, or clary sage essential oils.

Make Space for Creativity

Is there a place in your home where you can make crafts, write in a journal, draw a Zentangle, or do some other creative activity? Give yourself permission to be creative in whatever way you like. It’s a way for your mind to unwind, reflect, and settle down. Whether you enjoy cooking an amazing soup recipe, crafting a soft latch hook rug, or writing poetry, you should have a place in your home where you feel free to create.

Add Some Greenery

You don’t need a green thumb to enjoy the calming benefits of live plants in your home. Besides adding a homey touch of nature to any room, plants can positively impact your mood and help clean the air in your home. Enjoy the peace of potted plants, or find some low-maintenance succulents.
