How to Create a Self-Care Sanctuary in Your Home

Taking care of yourself is an essential part of maintaining our wellbeing. Having the right spot to relax, think, and enjoy life is, unfortunately, something a lot of us have overlooked in life. Creating your own self-care sanctuary is something not a lot of us think about, but it is easier than you may realize, and important when you’re looking to strike the right balance in life. Here are a few tips to get you started.

 

Location

Think about where you want your self-care sanctuary to be. It could be in the bedroom, a cozy reading chair, or outside if you’d prefer.

 

Clutter

It can be difficult to relax when there is a lot of clutter around you. Eliminate some of the junk in the space and clear the surfaces and floors for a brighter and more airy feel.

 

Clean

Clean the space often by washing the blankets and wiping away dust for a healthier breathing space.

 

Nature

Incorporate some living plants into your self-care sanctuary to improve the air quality and bring a bit of nature indoors.

 

Favorites

What makes you feel comforted? Perhaps it’s a hot cup of tea, a warm blanket, thick socks, or simply a notepad and pen to write down your thoughts.

 

Unplug

Ideally, create a space that is free from technology. Use this time to unplug – don’t worry, it’s just for a little while – so that you can unwind and become more in tune with your mind and body.
