Spring Forward: 3 Ways to Create a Serene Space at Home

Creating a space that will uplift you is a powerful practice, especially now. Here are three ways Summit Creek residents are creating a serene shelter within the four walls of their homes.

Spring Cleaning

Keeping your home free from clutter can help you maintain a sense of normalcy and ease. Start by making a list of everything you want to clean so you can easily check things off. (If you’re not sure where to start, this checklist is a good entry point.) By breaking chores down into manageable chunks of time and enlisting the whole family, you can make your entire house sparkle in a matter of hours.

Bring the Outdoors In

Create an uplifting, serene home sanctuary by bringing the outdoors in. Studies have shown that plants not only clean the air by removing toxins but also boost moods and reduce stress. Add some verdant plants to create a more soothing, aesthetically pleasing atmosphere, and mix in some flowers for extra pops of color.

Add Some Soothing Elements

Home is where the heart is, so it’s vital to make sure your whole house feels like a refuge. Keep it simple and add candles, brightly colored accessories like throws or pillows and fragrant essential oil diffusers to your living spaces for a calming touch. Or, if you have a little extra time on your hands, convert an entire room into a designated “comfort zone” for wellness ritualswhether yoga, meditation or something else that soothes you.
