> Add candles to your home to create a warmth within your home. This cosy ambience will give you the relaxation you deserve after a hard day at work. If you’re going for scented candles, find a rustic subtle scent.

By combining your home with elements of nature, your space will help you transport your mind to a relaxing getaway. A homemade linen spray, soy or beeswax candles, and essential oils are all natural ways to enhance your room with fresh scents.

> Electronic devices are most often a source of distraction and keep your mind awake, therefore not getting the sleep you need.

However, if you need to have your TV set in the bedroom for instance, make sure you place it in a discrete area. To keep to the serene atmosphere, hide the cables and wires.

5. Declutter your space, declutter your mind
