Surround Yourself with Love and Joy ~ by Kim Bedene from The Curated Heart ~ Guest Post

We’re facing uncertain times, and this can make us feel anxious, stressed and worried. It’s human to feel this way, so we shouldn’t judge ourselves for having a few bad days. But the good news is, there are little things we can do, that will help us transform and feel a little bit happier, and an important part of this is looking at what we surround ourselves with.

Are we surrounded by positivity and joy, or stress and negativity? Do we read things that make us laugh, or that leave us more worried than before? Are series and movies that we watch joyful and happy, or do we feel a bit on edge or even scared? What about people around us: do they encourage and reassure us, or are they leaving us with new problems to deal with? And the last thing to look at is our home; do we feel at peace or is our house just a big never-ending to-do list?

When we become aware of the little things that bring our spirit down, we become equipped with the knowledge to transform ourselves. And in times like these, it’s essential that we surround ourselves with as much positivity as we possibly can.

So look around you and start picking joy and love, over fear and negativity. Turn off the news and pick up a good book. Instead of worries taking over your mind and ruining your day, go outside or in a quiet room and meditate for a few minutes. And instead of focusing on everything that can go wrong, try to find as many things as you can that you’re grateful for. 

Little habits like these can change our days and weeks for the better, plus we can build some new routines that will help us even after all of this is over.

We’re all in this together, so let’s stay strong and positive 🙂


About Kim Bedene

I hope you found this little post inspiring, and with that, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Kim and I have a blog that is all about minimalism, decluttering and simple intentional living.

I believe we deserve to live peaceful and joyful lives and the things we own are often a big source of stress and dissatisfaction. That is why I’m helping people declutter their homes and wardrobes, so they find their quiet balance and they can finally enjoy their home.

If you have some time, I would be grateful if you check out my blog The Curated Heart where I share all simple living tips that I learned on my journey, and if you’re up for a little challenge, I invite you to check out my 5-day decluttering challenge that will help you let go of some things you don’t need or use anymore.

I truly wish everyone lots of peace and love and joy, and remember, this too shall pass.
