However, you don’t have to wait until your renovations and upgrades are complete to start implementing relaxing décor and routines. We’ve found 12 tips for how to unwind at the end of a busy day at and have compiled some great takeaways from this article to help you start de-stressing today.

Decorate with relaxation in mind. Being intentional about home design allows you create spaces that foster tranquility and renewal. One suggestion offered by the article is to set up a restful nook that engages the senses. Ideas include:

  •  “a fluffy rug and luscious textiles”

  •  “beautiful music”

  •  “favorite art and photography”

  •  “delicious room fragrances”

Another aspect of your interior design that can help you unwind is an entryway that lets you transition from a working mindset to one of peace and rejuvenation. You can create this by giving yourself places to stash “coat, bag, shoes…..mail” right when you enter your home.

The next suggestion – to give “green plants and flowers” a role in your home décor – is cheap and easy to implement.  Why does including these in your home help you relax? As the author points out, both making flower arrangements and taking care of growing plants are activities that tend to lower a person’s stress levels.

Develop healthy habits. In addition to designing space so that it promotes de-stressing, it is important to behave accordingly.

  •  Start taking control of your screen time by resolving to do one “unplugged” fun activity before you turn on the TV.

  •  Occasionally make weeknights special by socializing with friends for “coffee and dessert,” “book club,” “crafts night,” or the like.

  •  Facilitate dining at home by stocking up on items that are both healthy and ready-to-eat.

  •  Develop small but important routines that help you feel organized and connected such as setting the table and making your bed.

Encourage yourself to relax. Our minds and bodies can’t always relax just because we want them to, but there are simple ways to bring yourself to a more relaxed state as bedtime approaches. For one thing, the time spent doing a chore like loading the dishwasher can double as time to focus on slow, relaxed breathing.

Since so many of us work from home or are still doing work-related “stuff” once we get home, it is important to have a scheduled time at which all work activities cease. Finally, using dimmer, cozier lighting as the evening wanes mimics the natural effect of the setting sun and can help us get a better night’s sleep.
