Finding stress relief at home is as
easy as creating it. By decorating your room in a way that encourages relaxation, you can also decrease stress. Since everyone's different, there's no "one style fits all", but here are some suggestions to get you started:


o  Use warm neutral colored wall paint in the room...earth tones are my favorite.

o  Keep the lights low. Use warm lighting to help with relaxation. (I find the oriental paper lamps work great)  

o  Use accessories like a small relaxing fountain or a soothing sound machine to help create the mood.

o  Use soft pillows and sheets if for your bedroom.

o  Using a soothing aromatherapy scent will also aid your senses in reaching that relaxed state.

o  Try adding live plants that have a tropical look and feel to them.
