There is nothing I love more than creating sanctuaries. The proper definition for Sanctuary is 'a place of refuge or safety. That is truly what your home should be, a place that calms you and keeps you safe. Does your home make you feel that way?
If not, I highly recommend reading my book, Blissful Living. It will show you how and why its so important to create a sacred space for yourself to design a beautiful life. Here is a page from my book that is one of my favorites. . .
Think about how you inhabit your home and how well you take care of yourself and your family there. For me, my home is a place that is the backdrop for how I get up in the morning and start my day, enjoy my coffee, take my vitamins, burn my favorite candles, style beautiful vignettes, relax and watch movies, make beautiful meals, write in my journal, take detoxifying baths. It helps me do the very best to take care of myself. When life brings the difficult moments, its absolutely my place for refuge.
After a few weeks of desperately needing the time and sacred space to nurture myself through some of the hardest times, I have only done more to add elements to my home that needed some enhancing. I added some plants, added a running water feature, a new storage system for my journals and crystals, I also got a new beautiful set of tea cups. This weekend, take some time out to enhance your home for self care. (Another thing I did was hit up TJMaxx for a yoga mat, some vitamins, stretch bands to make sure I keep up with my fitness).
Here are a few questions to consider while enhancing your sanctuary this weekend. . .
1. In what ways to do I enjoy taking care of myself at home?
2. What brings you calm and rest?
3. What mood/feeling do you want each room in your home to bring you?
4. What decorative items could you add to help connect you more with that mood/feeling?
5. What colors are you loving and needing more of in your life and how can you incorporate them?
