Mental Health

Lonestar Living

There are many forms of self-love. While people can get caught up in the day-to-day, it is important to take a step back and focus on your mental health. Here are a few tips and tricks to beautify your space and boost your mood.

Treat yourself, you deserve it.

Revive Your Space

Livening up your living area is an easy and cheap way to lift your mood. Instead of buying pricey original works of art, look for printed reproductions of art that speak to you. This could be the Van Gogh painting that inspires you the most, or a print from a budding, local artist.

Embrace Your Flower Power

Stop and smell the roses. While you’re at it, buy some for yourself too. OK, maybe opt for a simple bouquet on your next run to the supermarket instead of roses. Fresh flowers can make for a beautiful centerpiece in your entryway while giving your home a nice, uplifting scent.

Keep It Fresh

Eating fresh fruits and vegetables can boost both your physical and mental state. A glass bowl full of apples and oranges can also provide for a great aesthetic. Another perk of keeping these foods visible is that you’re more likely to eat them when they’re out. Win-win.

Get Streaming

Finding a new band or artist you absolutely adore can be pretty life-changing. With a plethora of streaming services out there, you can find new music easier than ever. Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal subscriptions start at just $10 month. This may be just what you need to get out of that rut.

Set The Mood

Candlelit dinners are romantic for a reason. Who’s to say you can’t get romantic on a weeknight in your living room, too? A nice, scented candle will fill your living space with your favorite smell while adding that peaceful, relaxing vibe you need after a long day at work.
