3 home renovation projects that will also benefit your mental health

February 25, 2023

Our surroundings have a great impact on how we feel. Ancient cultures have practiced nurturing their living spaces to benefit their well-being, and some of those practices such as Chinese art, feng shui, have found their way into the modern western world.

Harmonized spaces can be impactful, but what is especially healthy for you - both mentally and physically - is the process itself. Getting your hands on crafting, rearranging, painting, and breaking elements in your home to design something beautiful is contributing to your body more than you can imagine.

In this article, we will explore four ways your can renovate your space and feel better every day.

Introducing new elements to your space

The thing about our home is - it always needs some work. There are things in need of repair, replacement, refreshment. When your interior seems a little out-of-date, like your furniture and appliances have been there for too long and it’s time to change - it is your moment to get creative.

These projects don’t have to be big - it’s enough to identify what would you like to change this very instance. Or, perhaps, what have you been delaying changing for so long. This might be a great opportunity to freshen up your rooms and make them more contemporary.

Dig into your Pinterest boards for interior design and get started with something you’ve wanted to do a long time ago. Wheter your board is about modern radiator ideas for home decor, rearranging the kitchen elements for more efficiency, or changing the curtains - every part of the process from creativity to action can be very inspiring and nurturing for you.

Gardening projects

Gardening is well-known and practiced as therapeutic. This is one of the reasons why it is often practiced by monks in different cultures. Taking care of living things (plants, animals) is simultaneously taking care of yourself.

Whether you have a garden in your back yard or a balcony in your appartment were you’ve always planned of growing some spices just for you - now is the perfect time to get your hands dirty and reconnect with nature in your living space.

Planting and decorating your garden, balcony, or interior is particularly healing for those who are going through bereavement, and taking some time off to grieve. Giving life to something new in such a difficult period of your own is helping you not fall deeper into stages of depression and inertion.

Gardening projects can also be interesting when done with other members of your family, friends, or neighbors. Moreover, it can be a nice conversation starter if you want to connect to your hood more. Ask the lady next door how did she grow such beautiful salad garden - and introduce a new person into your life.

Woodcarving projects

In the digital era, we often neglect how important it is for humans to do something with their hands. Cooking, planting, sculpting - creative activities that involve making something out of substance involve multiple centers of our brain and help us grow in so many ways.

If you are looking for a new project to take on, woodcarving can be just the one for you. Imagine decorating your wooden furniture, shelves in your workshop, or creating new art pieces for the living room - all by yourself.

Woodcarving is not requiring a big budget to get things going. All you need are a few carving knives and pieces of wood you’d like to work on. These activities are equally practiced indoors and outdoors, and can be quite meditative as they take away all your focus.

Start with small projects to practice the craft itself - then get started with engraving beautiful elements into your benches and porch chairs, making something truly unique and yours.


Home renovation can be many things beyond painting and changing your furniture. Some of the ideas we spoke about here can be done completely under budget and still immerse you into designing something both beautiful and useful.

Another nice aspect of both gardening and woodcarving is that both hobbies gather large communities worldwide. Connecting with new people and sharing positive vibes with creative ideas is very powerful for navigating through today’s reality, fast and detached.

We hope you enjoyed this article, and that you have the next idea of how to get started working on your space right now. What are your favorite renovation activities?
