Due to the pandemic and all the things we have to deal with this year, we spend more time indoors than ours. This has caused a change in our daily routines, dropping and cultivating new ones all year round. As everything seems to be falling apart, you might have to take things into your own hands by creating your very own wellness space.
Of course, wellness starts with you making out time for yourself. It includes eating, positive thinking, and most importantly, your physical habits. And you can create that in your own home.
Creating a wellness space is a good way to keep your sanity in check. Have time for yourself and your body. However, you can’t pick just any room in your home and make it your wellness space. There are certain things that need to be considered. When you establish your own home wellness space, you create an avenue to establish new habits, think things through properly, proceed into a new frame of mind, etc.
However here are the important steps you need to consider before setting up your own wellness space.
Set A Goal
The first step to creating a wellness space is to know what you want from it. Creating and writing out your goals and objectives go a long way in relieving you of your daily stress. When you write out what you want from something, it helps you know how to aim towards it and eventually achieve it. Without doing this, your wellness center wouldn’t be complete. Understand what you want to feel in this space and that can help in creating it.
Find A Perfect Location
You’re at home, finding a location can be a challenge but in order to make it work, you need to find the right one. Look around your home and think of a place you would be more at peace practicing your yoga or thinking about certain things or even meditating.
Maybe your idea of wellness is reading it writing a journey or listening to something to calm your mind. Whatever it is your going fit. You have been a place with space and quiet, away from any noise that could be present in your home. If you’d be practicing yoga, you need a place to accommodate your mat. If not, you’ll need a place to accommodate your journal, a chair, and a desk for comfort.
Get Rid Of Distractions
The next step is to eliminate any form of distraction from your wellness space. You need a place to clear your mind as it could be key to most of your decision making. If you would be surrounded by noise and clutter etc then it just won’t do. So get rid of any form of distractions or things that disrupt your meditation such as loud noises and reminders. Wellness spaces are places where you go to get away from having to do many things at once. Instead, you’re there to focus on one thing at a time. You can make it technology-free if you can to avoid having to look at screens.
Pay Attention to Your Surrounding
When it comes to indoor wellness spaces, you need to be around a place that is soothing and provides clarity. This includes the lighting and the décor. You might want the presence of indoor plants and earth tones if that works for you. Plants are a great air purifier; they also beautify a surrounding. In the absence of a window, you can set a landscaper photograph to bring enough nature elements in your wellness space.
You can opt for natural lighting if it won’t be too harsh, direct, or distracting. Getting translucent blinds or even mesh curtains could be your best bet. However, if you do not have a window in your space, then you can go for soothing lights to complement all your activities.
Make Use of Sense Stimulants
Yeah, that’s right. I’m taking diffusers for essential oils which can stimulate your senses. They can also be of great benefit to your aromatherapy. The sense of smell should never be overlooked because it holds so much power. You’re trying to filter out all the noise and smell on the outside and trying to create a whole new world on the inside.
Self-care is a journey that never ends. It’s consciously forming actions that can lead to unconscious habits and a better life. It’s a journey that never truly ends and the cultivation of a good wellness space is a great step to take in this journey. So why not start yours now?
