4 Decorating Tips to Inspire Positive Thinking

The past year has been tough. And I know a lot of people, including myself, have been feeling a bit low-energy.

I started thinking and realized that for years now, there has been a serious lack of positivity (for many obvious reasons!). We all need to remember that positive thinking is one of the most powerful ways to improve our lives. And all it takes is a little motivation to get the positivity pumping again.

However, it’s not always easy to just be positive. It takes effort to maintain a good attitude and to keep your confidence levels high.

You need to surround yourself with supportive people who believe in you and will pick you up when you’re feeling low.

You also need to cultivate a clean, safe environment where you can live and work. Decorating your personal space with positivity-boosting décor is an easy way to shift back onto a positive track.

Once you do this, every part of your life will benefit, including your health, relationships, productivity, and mood.

Here are some decorating tips to get you started.

Decorate Dynamically

Dynamic decorations shake the stagnant energy out of a room and fill your home with positive, flowing vibes. This is why the ancient art of interior design, feng shui, recommends adding a fountain to a room to boost positivity.

Fountains might not be realistic decorating options for everyone, but there are other subtly dynamic options to choose from.

I love the levitating decorations by Floately. These items really levitating in mid-air by using powerful electromagnets and wireless electricity. They’re dynamic, mesmerising and fascinating!

Kids love them as well, which adds another layer of positivity to the mix.

Floately has many levitating accessories to choose from, including lamps, speakers and plant pots. You can see them all levitating right here. Now, you can also get up to 70% off your order during Floately’s spring sale.

My personal favourites are Airsai, the floating plant pot, and Volta, the levitating light bulb.

Airsai is a cute little plant pot that hovers above a bamboo base. It can hold any small house plant or flower. It’s fully waterproof, so you can tend your green baby as the pot levitates.

Not only is Airsai attractive, but it’s also better for plants than normal pots. It rotates gently as it floats in mid-air, and this ensures your plant gets an equal amount of sunlight on all sides. With Airsai, your plants will grow bigger and bloom brighter.

I love watching Airsai floating while I have a cup of tea, and it makes a wonderful companion while reading or working at a desk. Plants are already a positive influence, and when you add relaxing levitation, the energy is even more refreshing.

Volta is another inspiring levitating gadget. It’s a vintage-style Edison lightbulb that floats above a mahogany base. It beautifully merges a refined classical look with modern flair.

Volta makes an excellent reading light, nightlight or mood light for a romantic dinner. It was calibrated to a precise glow of 2000K, which is said to relieve stress and improve focus.

If you’re looking for sleek, clean lighting to reduce clutter, Volta is a great choice. It’s free of light fixtures and wiring, so it makes your space look more minimal and relaxed.

Both Volta and Airsai are durable and made of high-quality materials, such as real wood. They will bring natural dynamism and positivity to your space for decades.

Green Goodness

One of the reasons that Airsai is such a positivity-boosting decoration is that it incorporates another tip: add some green plants or flowers to your home.

Adding some natural décor elements makes your home feel more open, and it also boosts dynamism. Plants grow as days pass and keep things feeling fresh.

You also need to take care of plants, and this compassionate act will lead to feelings of fulfilment.

Many of us have been worried about our own health for so long that we’ve forgotten what it’s like to take care of another living thing.

Plants look great with almost any existing décor, so if you’re not a decorating expert but still want a new look, load up on green babies to do the trick.

Playful Lighting

Lighting has a big effect on energy levels and mood. If you feel drowsy in certain rooms and hungry in others, it might be the fault of your lighting!

Playing with light in each room can help you to feel more relaxed and positive in each space.

For example, you should use dim, warm lighting in the bedroom and dining room. This will regulate your sleep cycles and appetite better.

Blue light (the light that can ruin your sleep cycle) is actually beneficial if you use it in the kitchen or bathroom. Blue light boosts energy levels and gets you ready for your day.

If you’re looking for a new desk lamp, go for LED lighting, which is said to improve productivity. Volta, the levitating light, is an LED that lasts up to 20 years per bulb, and it makes a wonderful desk accessory.

If you feel like your energy is a little out of whack, you may need to update your lighting to help straighten out your mood. It’s much more effective than you think!

Rearrange Your Furniture

If you’re not able to buy new decorations or furniture for your home, you can still shake out those negative cobwebs by rearranging your current furniture. No matter which way you do it, your home will feel totally new. New is always good when you’re refreshing the energy in your space. You can’t go wrong!

However, if you’re looking for some inspiration, I always recommend feng shui. It’s simple and it really works to balance the energy in your home. Here are a few tips.

  • In the bedroom, make sure your bed’s headboard is against a wall. Your bed shouldn’t share a wall with the door.
  • The dining room table should be clear of clutter. Hang a mirror in the dining room to reflect the table.
  • The living room sofa should be against a wall to make you feel more secure.
  • Never obstruct doorways, and always keep bathroom doors closed.

There are plenty of feng shui tips you can dig into to refresh your home. They’re simple and fun to incorporate, and you don’t have to spend a dime!

Surround Yourself with Positivity

Positive thinking isn’t just about your state of mind. Positivity and confidence on the inside come from how you cultivate your life on the outside.

Building positive relationships and healthy habits take time. Alternatively, redecorating for positive thinking is an easy win. You can start right now and feel the benefits almost instantly.

One of the simplest ways to start is by adding a new plant to your home. Better yet, plant a seed and care for your new green baby as it grows.

Or, add some dynamism with a levitating accessory from Floately. Decorations like Airsai and Volta are relaxing and mood-boosting. They add a little magic to any room.

You can get both of these floating decorations and others for up to 70% off during Floately’s spring sale. They also make fantastic gifts for anyone who needs a positivity boost. You can see them levitating with your own eyes at floately.com.

The sun is shining brighter and the flowers are blooming outside. But if you feel like your home is stuck in pandemic mode, it’s time to make some positive changes. Try the tips above, and please comment with any suggestions of your own!
