Our surroundings can affect our moods! From paint color, to lighting, to texture, the items we surround ourselves with can make or break our experience each day.
So take a look around your space with fresh eyes. If you’re aiming for mindfulness, don’t change anything in the moment... just notice. You can always change things later as an act of self-care.
Start with 5 things that DON’T bring you pleasure when you look at them. Maybe it’s a reminder of a task you haven’t completed, or lighting or a paint color you don’t care for. Notice how each of those things feels in your body and your emotions. Shake it off and reset.
Now notice 5 things that DO bring you pleasure. Maybe it’s a photo of a loved one, or a soft blanket, or the music that’s playing. Really sit with each of those things, and notice how those feel in your body and your emotions. What does this tell you about what things you’d like to to see more of in your space?
