A key withe the word happiness to illustrate how to get rid of negative energy in your home

Ask yourself, “How does my home feel?” Is it your personal space filled with negative energy or is it the place where you enjoy spending time? Does it bring you peace and relaxation, especially after a long day at work? Your space at home can drastically affect your mood, but it doesn’t have to. It is possible to bring positivity into your life with a few small changes. Here are 4 ways to update your living space that will help you usher out old, bad vibes and invite positive energy in.

1) A fresh coat of paint
Change the energy of your entire house with a new coat of paint. Even if you change the color on your bookcases, you will feel the difference.

“Color plays a pivotal role in your home,” says House Beautiful. “And, according to interior designer Ana Zuravliova, yellow neutralizes bad energy. “From an interior design viewpoint, this color will also make your space appear bigger and add a warm tone to a room.”

2) Declutter
The simple act of decluttering your home is an excellent way to also declutter your mind and get rid of those negative vibes.

“The items you surround yourself with might be the result of years of thoughtless accumulation, but your environment can have a big impact on your health,” says My Domaine. “A study published in the Journal of Neuroscience found that clutter affects your ability to focus and overloads your visual cortex, while another suggests that people who live in a neat space are twice as likely to make healthier food choices.”

3) Utilize the tools in Feng Shui
Feng Shui is intended to help “bring happiness, good fortune and wellness into your life,” There are a few tips worth considering designed to bring harmony to your environment.

Bridget Saraka, the Saskatoon-based owner of Feng Shui by Bridget, says the practice offers “life-changing benefits. Feng shui is about creating a space that’s not only pleasing to your eye, but also pleasing to all your senses, so that your home supports and enriches your life.”

4) Smudge it
Smudge the negative energy away by burning sage in your home. This may sound a bit odd, but smudging with sage is a practice that dates back thousands of years to indigenous Americans, and is one that is used by all kinds of people to improve the energy in a room or structure.

“Mystics say the Native American practice of smudging, or purifying a room with the smoke of sacred herbs, can help clear negative energy from a space,” says Spirituality Health.” And the apparent benefits are steeped in science. When burned, sage and other herbs release negative ions, which research has linked to a more positive mood.”
