Recently I received a generous amount on a gift card for my birthday and I decided to use that money wisely. I used it to buy items to create myself a “sanctuary” a place where I can go and relax. It is important to create a safe place where we feel the most comfortable and relaxed. When life has you stressed and overwhelmed we need to take a moment to breathe and being surrounded by things that relax us is essential.
When making your sanctuary make sure to include plants or elements of nature. It is scientifically proven that the color green and nature brings calming affects. Another thing to include is a comfortable place to sit/lay such as a chair or sofa. A blanket and pillow is good as well because when we get really relaxed we might want to cozy up and take a nap! Lastly I would recommend to include a table to place items on such as a hot coffee, laptop, or a book.
Now go create your own sanctuary loves!
