Spotlight on: clear mind, body and environment

Did you know that a calm and uncluttered physical environment can decrease anxiety, increase energy and improve relationships? Here are some ways you can make the most of your space:

Decluttering your home

Feeling overwhelmed by stuff? Choose a room in your home and focus on one object at a time.

Ask yourself: Do I need it? Do I love it? Do I use it?

Use the answers to clear your physical space and give yourself room to mentally move on.

Adding plants to your work space

Plants in your workplace can bring physical and psychological benefits, including:

  • reduced stress and increased productivity
  • cleaner air and decreased noise levels.

Be sure to choose plants that can thrive in your workplace. Good indoor options include succulents, rubber plants and peace lilies.
