Our home can be a therapeutic sanctuary

March 22, 2020

As many of you, I also live in a stricted area where isolation is necessary at the moment. And I’m not going to lie, it’s hard. it’s a real struggle sometimes, especially that spring season is finally here and all we want is making outdoor plans. I still go out to the nature as it’s a safe place to be and probably would go nuts without doing it so.

But. I realized that my room can be a therapeutic sanctuary too, and staying home can be a therapy. We can transform our home to a happy place. We can focus on ourselves and our environment by starting new or forgotten things we always want to do but somehow never managed to have time for it. Like taking care of the loved ones around you, working out, doing yoga, meditate, taking care of plants, organize, clean-up and declutter your space ( got the realization how the heck were you able to live in such a mess before… ;D), cook more healthy meals, gardening in the backyard / balcony, relaxing in the bath tub, reading, making DIY projects, playing on an instrument, drawing, painting, making pottery, etc. The list is endless, depending on what makes you feel alive.

So there you have it, a new chance to reborn. To be grateful for what you’ve already achieved, appreciate the little things and to be more creative. Cliché but true, all of us should do more of what we love and makes us happy. Begin with creating a lovely, cozy home that helps to relax and allows us to be us, no filter added. Here’re some ideas to make the best out of your place and live the art of slow living:
