How do you take care of you? For many, this is a hard question to answer. While you may take care of your job, loved ones, and house, caring for yourself can be a bit trickier. If you aren’t taking care of yourself, the key could be to create a space in your home to associate with relaxation and stress relief. To help, we’ve rounded up a few tips on how to create a self-care sanctuary within your home to help you care for yourself.
Self-Care Sanctuary Basics
- Find the right spot
Firstly, find the right place where you’d like your self-care sanctuary to be. A great place is somewhere away from distractions (ideally with no TV or computer nearby), with lots of natural light, and a place to put your home comforts. For some, this may be the bedroom. A reading chair is also a good place or somewhere outside if you prefer being in the great outdoors.
Our minds can have a hard time relaxing when there is clutter around the physical space. Start by organizing your belongings to clear space off the floor and surface areas so that the room feels more open and breathable. Give it a good clean, too.
- Find your home comforts
Some find relaxation in reading a good book, pampering themselves, or following a guided meditation. Whatever you prefer, keep useful items nearby to encourage yourself to relax in this space.
- Add in living plants
Not only do living plants help to detoxify the air, they can evoke the feeling of nature and calmness. A great palm or spider plant are great plants for beginners!
