They say, “Home is where the heart is.” Home is the place you feel love and love most. And Nate Berkus says, “Your home should rise up to greet you.” It is a reflection of you are and what you love. But how many of us are living in homes that not only fail to greet us, but disrespect who we are? Like dysfunctional relatives, they bring out the worse in us. They are inefficient, hoarding, chaotic and reflect who we think we should be, not who we are in this moment.
Think your home is not an important aspect of your mental health? This week’s post will have you think again. When we meet our mornings with distress because we can’t find our keys or end our days in a stressful home filled with frustration instead of peace, we sacrifice our health. We all need a sanctuary, a place of refuge from this crazy world. While this is true for everyone, it is especially for those who are emotionally sensitive. And while this obviously applies to our literal homes, home can also be our bodies, our mental state, our roles as parents. It’s anywhere we should feel at ease, but perhaps don’t.
