Though it is sad to acknowledge, today anxiety and stress have penetrated in everyone’s life. Who’s to be blamed? Maybe the kind of life we are leading is pushing us towards loneliness and seclusion. Mental health these days needs more frequent open discussions than ever before. Living with anxiety is a real struggle and sometimes can pull you down. While there are many therapies and counselling sessions available for relief, there are small little changes you can do to curb the anxiety situation.  One way is to make your living space a relaxing oasis which throws out all the uncomfortable vibes. Home should be a place where you long to be in and can have a fundamental effect on health. With everything from the colour of the walls to freeing up space to adding a few relaxing elements like candles, your abode can be a catalyst to overcome anxiety and stress. With this in mind, we’ve put together a few ways your interiors can be used to combat anxiety.

Keep free spaces

Home spaces are like mind, the more you keep it clutter-free the more you’ll feel relaxed. If you have too much clutter in your home space, chances are you will worsen up your anxiety issue. Instead of using small décor items use large and rather few pieces to decorate your house. Though it might sound vague, filling up your home with books create a confusing environment. To solve the concern, you can embrace the empty space by filling your bookshelves half while keeping the other half free. Summing it up, keep everything spacious, keep it clean and allow yourself to breathe in positivity.
