Is your home a sanctuary? A genuine port-in-the-storm kind of place? Or does your home drain rather than re-charge you? Make your home the inviting oasis you want it to be.

Just remember these few easy steps:

1) Orderliness
Things don't need to be perfect, but they do need to be fairly orderly. Chaos does not promote peace!

2) Beauty
Now, I'm not talking about HOUSE BEAUTIFUL here, although that's great if that's the way you like it. There's a reason home decor is so popular; we feel and perform better when we feather our nests! Beauty and comfort are the keys, so pay particular attention to color and clutter.

3) Organization
You need to be able to find what you're looking for when you need it. Enough said.

4) Inviting
Hospitality is simply the art of making others feel at home. Comfortable furnishings, soothing sights, sounds and scents go a long way towards cultivating a relaxing atmosphere in your own little corner of the world.

5) Relationships
Let's get real: when people are constantly bickering, there is no peace and no sanctuary. Adults and children need a safe space where they can be accepted, appreciated, and encouraged to grow.

Use this short list to test your household's appeal. Discover the power of intentionally and creatively designing a home life that can empower the members of your family to give of their best each day and enjoy the rewards of rejuvenating together each evening.
