Home, Safe, Home: Importance of Feeling Safe and Secure in Your Own Home

Home is our sanctuary and refuge from everything bad that happens in this world. Even if you have a terrible day at work, going home always signifies that you’re going somewhere to relax and enjoy yourself, whether you opt to get tucked in your fave blanker and read a book, or to meditate on your balcony. Home is where you can feel at peace, therefore it’s important to keep it safe and secure the best way you can. In case you’re planning to make your home more sheltered, here are some mindful tips that will help you feel carefree and secure:

Be nice to your neighbors

Be nice to your neighbors

Having warm, or at least cordial relationship with your neighbors can be extremely helpful, as then you know that they’ll make an effort to assist you in case something goes wrong. Now, that doesn’t mean that you need to have regular dinners with them or to be in touch all the time, but occasionally asking about their well-being or helping them out can help you strengthen your relationship and maybe get something in return. A good neighbor will always make sure that your home’s safe if you’re ever out of town, so instead of shunning your neighbors, try to build a relationship based on trust and mutual respect.

Make your home feel safe

Being safe and feeling safe are two different concepts. One can be safe in a locked room, but in order to feel safe, you should make your home feel like your own special place where everything feels just right. Feel free to experiment with colors and patterns that are relaxing and peaceful. Neutral colors are always a great choice, so if you want to add some bold colors, make sure to use them as a focal point, rather than making them a dominant part of your decor.

But don’t forget to protect yourself

But don’t forget to protect yourself

No matter how safe you feel, it’s still necessary to ensure your home is safe from intruders and other unwanted visitors. Sometimes, that can seem unnecessary, after all, a plain key can be enough, no? Technically, yes, but if you want to be extra sure that your doors and windows are protected, you should consider services from locksmith Ryde, since they specialize in high-level key access systems, which means that only you and the people who have your permission will be able to enter your home. Additionally, you can opt for installing a CCTV system, so you’ll know at any time if there’s anyone at your front door.

Keep your valuables elsewhere

Having your valuable belongings near you can make you feel safe, but it can also be a motivation for burglars, so in case you’re not using your prized possessions all the time, it’s best to get a safe deposit box in your bank or post office, so there won’t be the reason to worry about others stealing your jewelry, money or valuable paperwork. It might be difficult to part with your cherished and sometimes downright priceless belongings, but it’s best to feel at peace knowing they’re stored somewhere where they won’t get stolen so easily.

Practice mindfulness

Practice mindfulness

The best way to feel protected at your place is to adopt some mindful practices that will make you feel relaxed and calm. That way you’ll be able to sleep without twitching and jumping every time you hear some noise from the outside, such as your neighbor’s car alarm or the sound of teenagers coming home from a night out. Therefore, it’s recommended to do things that you enjoy that bring you peace of mind, such as meditation, yoga, watching comforting TV programs or reading your favorite books with a warm cup of herbal tea by your side.

Sometimes it’s difficult to distinguish the real threat from the insignificant noise, so that’s why it’s important to be more at peace with yourself, so you won't feel disturbed or frightened whenever you hear some minor commotion outside. Yet, it’s crucial to make sure that your doors and windows are safely locked so a potential intruder won’t be able to enter your home. Also, be sure to have good relationships with your next-door neighbors, so they’ll feel willing to help you and keep your place secure whenever you’re not around.
