Boost your serotonin with a prettier space...


In this world full of turmoil, we all would love to be able to escape it all. But unfortunately, not all of us have the means to take that dream vacation to the places we have in our minds where we would experience tranquility and decompression. But the good news is, there are so many wonderful and inexpensive ways to turn our space into a haven that we only dream we would get elsewhere.

No matter how hard things are most of us have a place that we call home - whether it's a studio, a one-room apartment or a shack, you can still make your space a beautiful place that can boost your energy level and give you relaxation needed to reface the world yet another day. Here are some tips that can help you do just that by using the five senses rule:


Sight - Fresh flowers arranged in a nice bouquet either on a mantel or a coffee table can be so well-pleasing to the eye.

Sound - Playing your favorite sound in the background is always a great way to decompress and center the mind.

Smell - Light a favorite candle to permeate the air with a great scent and if you're allergic to candles, you can never go wrong with a mild-scented room fragrance spray.

Touch - Invest in a nice cozy velvet/velour/chenille throw or some luxurious silky sheets.


Taste - Whether it's a glass of your favorite tasting wine or some great velvety chocolates, I'm sure each one of you has a favorite snack that brings you comfort.

With these basic things in mind, I'm sure you can be creative in making your space beautiful and unique to your particular likings and style. My philosophy is to never settle for how you live just because of not being rich. Live a more conscious existence where lifestyle will enhance your health naturally - boosting your serotonin without the medications.
