Why it's important to surround yourself with beautiful things:
People surround themselves with beautiful things for a number of reasons. From Valentines Day flowers that are bursting with vibrant colour and fragrance, to great books sitting on antique pieces of furniture and pieces of abstract art hanging on the walls. But why is it so important to surround oneself with beauty? We discuss the thought process behind the idea right here.
Firstly, it’s really important to define what beauty is to you. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder so what one person may see as beautiful, another person may not. Defining beauty is individual and unique for all of us, it’s something that can set us apart from eachother.
Special Occasion Versus Everyday:
Many of us fall into the trap of not using something everyday because it’s a heirloom, or something precious we were given that we are worried will get ruined. But the fact is, if we hide these items away, we never get to enjoy them. If you have a few items that you never use, get them out and use them. They were given to you to enjoy.
It’s certainly been proven that surrounding ourselves with beautiful, positive people and things, helps inspire our creativity. For a writer that may be a shelf filled with wonderful books. For an artist, that might be images of artworks and artists that inspire them. If you surround yourself with positive things, you are guaranteed to feel more positive too.
There’s nothing more chaotic than coming home to a messy house that’s cluttered and dirty. Surrounding yourself with the right elements is also about giving them the space they need to be appreciated. Ridding your home of clutter and mess is an important step when you are beautifying any space.
Your home and/or your office is a place where you can express yourself with the things that you choose to surround yourself with. Use this as an opportunity to really indulge your creative side to decorate and arrange things just as you like them.
Making the Most of Your Space:
Your home or office doesn’t have to be massive to make it a haven for you to enjoy. Any space no matter how big or small can be transformed when you give your own personal touch to it. Flowers are one thing that can really transform any space, no matter how small. A vase of your favourite blooms can be great to have in any room of the house, and instantly create a beautiful focal point in your home.
Ultimately, by surrounding ourselves with beautiful things we like we are adding to our happiness and our overall well being. And ultimately, being a happier, healthier version of ourselves is what everyone should be constantly striving for on a daily basis.
