Find out which items in your home prevent you from being happy

Buying a house in Madrid, besides being an excellent opportunity right now, is one of those dreams that only come true every once in a while. However, this dream can over time turn into a sense of displeasure if we fill our home with items that prevent us from enjoying it fully and end up causing us unhappiness.

In fact, knowing if you are in a similar situation is not very difficult. It is enough to get carried away by the first impression the house makes on you upon entering one of its rooms to understand whether it is to your liking or not. Identifying what you don't like and the things that prevent comfort is already an important step in the right direction. However, even if you know which items make you feel anxious and interfere with your emotional balance, it is still very difficult to dispose some of them.

Stacks of papers are probably among the most disturbing elements in a home. Seeing them causes shame, anxiety and stress, deepening the sense that the disorder has taken us over and there is no solution. However, confronting the truth is hard, because we know that these papers contain documents of all kinds and it is an arduous, unpleasant, and time-consuming task to sort them out.

The memorable family or childhood items also impose their presence in the home, until we get over them. Those inherited objects that we do not like, are perpetuated for years, because getting rid of them would create a great feeling of ingratitude and guilt. Those other memories of what you did in your past also have a great emotional charge that makes it difficult to do without them. In the end, we end up keeping what does not fit our tastes and styles and give up what we do like and make us happier.

Surely there are very few people who have not kept a broken object, such as a cup, in the hope that they will fix it one day. The truth is that we never find the right moment and that object is still present in our home, knowing that it will never be any use to us.

There are many hobbies that for a specific time excite us, until we lose interest and abandon them. However, these hobbies have made us accumulate a whole series of tools like buckles, timber, etc. that are waiting to be reused again. The false sense of reusing them someday makes them always stay in your home.

It is up to us to prevent our homes from becoming one of those places that make our lives unpleasant, although reorganising it can become a complicated task. It is easier to buy a house in Madrid in the best condition and in the most exclusive areas of the capital if you visit the offices of Engel & Völkers. This company has extensive experience of more than 40 years in the property sector and its prestigious work in the intermediation of real estate is recognised at international level.
