How to Create a Me Space in Your Home

Life is busy! With work, appointments, family activities, endless piles of laundry and other commitments filling up your day, it can be difficult to find time for just you. Given the hectic pace of modern life, finding a little ‘me’ time and engaging in self-care is essential. In fact, it may just be the secret to reducing stress and staying healthy

Setting aside time for you doesn’t have to be expensive, fancy or even time-consuming. In fact, it’s possible to create ‘me’ space in your home that’s easy and achievable. Here are a few ideas to help inspire you to create a ‘me’ space of your very own: 

Cozy reading nook 

Whether it’s in your bedroom or tucked away in a corner of your living room or den, a cozy book-nook is a great place to escape to and indulge in a good read. It’s also pretty easy to create – all you’ll need is a big comfy chair, a bookcase or clever shelving, a lamp, and a warm fuzzy throw blanket and your cozy book nook is complete. 

Meditation space 

Meditation has become pretty trendy recently and for good reason. Not only does it help reduce stress and even help to lower your blood pressure, it can also help you find calm and reconnect with your true self. 

When it comes to creating a meditation space, simplicity is best. Find a quiet corner in your home away from noise, traffic, and distractions. Although you actually don’t need anything to engage in meditation, a comfortable pillow to sit on, a candle and an essential oil diffuser are a few nice additions you may want to consider. 

Spa-like bathroom 

Who doesn’t dream of a spa-like bathroom? Not only is it a major selling feature for many potential buyers, it’s also a great place to relax, de-stress and unwind. If a spa-like bathroom is on your wish list, remember that there are ways to perk up your bathroom without spending a fortune. A fresh coat of paint in a soothing shade, a few nice candles, new mats, plants, and some luxurious bubble bath can go a long way when transforming your bathroom into a sanctuary.

At-home gym 

Sometimes all it takes to de-stress is a little sweat. Dedicating a space in your home for an at-home gym is also an effective way to dedicate time for you. Again, you don’t need to go crazy with elaborate gym equipment. A treadmill or stationary bike, skipping rope, a few weights, a stability ball and yoga mat are all you need to get a great workout. 

Adding a ‘me’ space to your home is a fantastic way to help diminish stress and stay grounded, but it’s also a major selling feature. A home is a sanctuary, so why not show off those extra great features? If you’re looking for a new home with a ‘me’ space included, or would like to sell your home, we can help.
