For many of us, our orbits have suddenly become confined to the immediate surroundings of our home. Finding peace, inspiration and breathing room in this condensed world can be a challenge. Here’s some ideas from our team to help you stay upbeat, inspired, refreshed, and able to embrace your space:

Mind your health needs. We often find our mood is greatly affected by how our body feels. Getting the sleep, nutrition, and movement your body desires can help keep your brain from being pulled into the abyss. So, embrace that dog walk, eat your veggies, and tuck yourself in before you turn into a pumpkin. Your mental state and family will thank you.

Create a personal sanctuary or reading nook. Open a good book, grab a hobby, or just rest your eyes and allow your mind to relax and unwind. It’s okay to take a break from chores, work, or family needs. Plants may also boost your outlook and have the added benefit of improving indoor air quality. Take advantage of the lush array of indoor greenery!

Fill your home with comforting smells. Scent has a strong link to memory and can create a sense of wellbeing. Try lighting a scented candle, a dab of a soothing essential oil to your wrist, or bake something! Even if it burns, nothing says home like the smell of something in the oven.
