It’s day 23 of the 31 Days of Mindfulness Challenge and today’s task is to add in one intentional piece to every room in your house.
Day 23: Add One Intentional Piece to Every Room
“Don’t underestimate the extent to which your surroundings impact your mood, thoughts and behaviors.”
— Aja Edmond
Back on day 16, we cleared the decor from the rooms in our home. The idea was to remove anything and everything that you didn’t like. For me, I had a tendency to buy something because it was a) on sale, b) at the thrift store and could be something great with a little work or c) something that could fill up an empty spot in our home.
At our house, the guest bedroom was the ‘worst’ offender of this – I spent the day taking everything down, giving all the surfaces a good clean and then letting it sit for a while, enjoying the emptiness.
Today, it’s time to go back into those cleared out rooms and add something intentional back in; something that makes us enjoy the space. Hopefully, it’s something you already have on hand, but if not, start looking. There’s no pressure to buy but sometimes the simple act of seeing what’s out there sparks creativity – maybe you can make the something you’re looking for? Or, maybe you start the process of hunting down that perfect item. I spent five months looking for an office chair and let me tell you, it was worth the wait.
When we take the time to mindfully decorate each room, we’re creating a home – a place that doesn’t overwhelm, a place we thoroughly enjoy and can fully relax in.
If you’re joining in, let us know what your favorite piece to add in was in the comments!
All our best,
