In today's fast-paced world, it can be hard to slow down. Research shows 74% of UK adults feel stressed. The study also found that stress is more common in women than men, and that it is more common in people who live in urban areas.
More than ever, slowing down is critical for our wellbeing.
A study by the University of Toronto found that people who slow down and take time for themselves are more likely to be happy and satisfied with their lives. This is because they are able to appreciate the little things in life and focus on what is truly important to them.
Another study by the University of California, Berkeley found that people who practice mindfulness, which is a type of slow living, have lower levels of stress and anxiety and better sleep quality. This is because they are able to be more present in the moment and let go of negative thoughts.
But good news is, there are things you can do to help slow down and relax, even in a fast-paced world. One way is to use home fragrance, of course, the way we like the most :) The right scents can help to create a calming and relaxing atmosphere in your home.
For example, lavender is a popular scent that is known for its calming properties. Other scents that can help you relax include chamomile, neroli, and sandalwood.
You can use home fragrance in a variety of ways to create a calming and relaxing atmosphere. You can burn scented candles, use essential oils in a diffuser, or spray mists for an instant dose of relaxing scent. The important thing is to choose scents that you find relaxing and soothing.
When you use home fragrance, you are taking an active role in the process of relaxing and creating the space to slow down. You are also giving yourself a way to connect with your senses.
So next time you're feeling stressed, overwhelmed, or burned out, reach for your favorite home fragrance. Let the scents do their magic.
