A touch of green

Studies suggest that plants can even help to reduce stress, improve moods and help with creativity. Fun fact, pictures of plants can have the same positive effect as real ones!
Get a better night’s sleep
Invest in a new comforter and commit to making the bed every morning. Even though it’s a simple task, making your bed each day gives you a sense of accomplishment, first thing when you wake up. It sets the speed for your day, plus it will look neat when you come home from a long day.
A dash of decor
Mirrors are a great way to make your space look bigger, they also reflect in the sun and add even more brightness to the room. Statement pieces like a patterned chair or colorful rug are another way to switch up the vibe in your space.
