2) Create a Sanctuary
There should be one small space in your home that feels like a sanctuary. It may be inside or outside, but it should make you feel calm and relaxed. Your private get-a-away at home should be free of all clutter and create a sense of inner calm. Your sanctuary could be as individual as you are — whatever makes you feel calm and peaceful. The point is to create a space where you can take even a five-minute break and feel rejuvenated.
- If you are fortunate enough to have a lush backyard and a good climate, your sanctuary could simply be a lawn chair.
- A room with a natural view and a cozy chair.
- An indoor garden, water fountain, candles, etc. It doesn’t have to take up a lot of space to be a focal point.
- Your sanctuary can even be your bathroom, if you’ve got a good tub, some candles, and soft music.
