Decorate! It's for Your Mental Health

By Brandi Goodman

April is National Decorating Month. The month means more than rearranging furniture and finally getting those photos hung up on the wall. Decorating your home and making it look warm and inviting is actually beneficial for your mental health. 

Self-Care Can Mean Caring for Your Space

Self-care is necessary for your mental well-being. If you don't take care of your own wants and needs, you'll never feel satisfied with yourself nor be able to deal with stress well. Self-care can mean caring for your space. Taking the time to change up your decor, get things organized, and have your home looking good can give you the time to yourself you need for stress relief.

The Calming Effect of Colors

Certain colors actually have a calming effect that can keep your mood stable. Decorating with these colors can help keep your home feeling peaceful. Blue is said to reduce blood pressure because it's considered tranquil. A pale gray is also calming. Yellow is known to promote energetic feelings and creativity. 

Soothing Your Senses

Decorations aren't just for looks. They can actually work to soothe all your senses if you choose the right pieces. Take a throw pillow, for example. Don't buy a rough pillow that looks good but feels terrible to use. Instead, find one that's soft that makes you want to touch it. Spray it with a fabric spray that can work well for your sense of smell. Lavender is an excellent scent choice if you're looking to feel calm and relaxed.

Use Your Own Designs

You don't have to buy artwork from the store to use as decor. Instead, you can up the mental health factor by creating a piece yourself. Use your own designs on your wall so you can look at them with pride every day. Creating artwork to hang up around your home is a great activity when you're looking to relieve stress and promote mental well-being.

Keep the decorations coming. You don't have to wait for the holidays to string up lights or set out colorful pillows. Decorate and redecorate anytime you feel like doing so. A change of decor can brighten your mood and help your mental health. Many people even switch up their styles for every season, adding sunflowers and bright colors for the summer and leaves for the fall. It's more beneficial than you realize.
