For most of us, home is the place we look forward to coming back to after a busy day at work, or a trip abroad somewhere. It’s the place where we feel most comfortable, and a place for us to rest, reflect, and recharge.
For todays post I wanted to talk about creating a calm environment in your living space, and a few tips how to do that without spending a fortune.
Since having my own home, I’ve really enjoyed coming home from work and lighting a few candles around the house. It signifies the end of the working day for me, and a chance to fully relax and have time to myself doing what I please.
I usually get mine from places such as Homesense or TK Maxx, they always have a huge selection of different scents and brands to choose from.
Picking up a fresh bunch of flowers makes such a difference to my mood, and I love having them around the house. They definitely cheer me up being the first thing I see on a morning.
Unfortunately we don’t have any local flower markets here so I just try to pick some up from the supermarket every now and again, although it’s very tempting to get them weekly I must say, especially because they are a pretty good price!
A QUIET CORNER
I dream one day of having a cosy little reading nook, curling up with a book one afternoon overlooking a great view. Although that may be a while off yet, I still love creating little areas of the house that feel welcoming and inviting.
It could be a nice armchair with gorgeous blanket, or a little side-table filled with your favourite products in your bedroom.
We all go about our day having our own small rituals, most of the time without even noticing it. I always make my tea leisurely and potter around the kitchen, spend a decent amount of time over my evening skincare, or laze around in the tub using a body scrub.
These are all moments I look forward to and I really think they make a big difference to your wellbeing.
Moments of calm are sometimes hard to come by, but they are always there if you look hard enough.
How do you create calm at home?
