All over the world people are overwhelmed with responsibilities. The demands on time are endless. You find yourselves in a loop of activities that never end. This is especially true for women who at times find no time to relax.
We need space and time to connect with our soul.
Your home has spaces for activities like cooking, eating, sleeping, studying, playing, entertaining and sleeping.
Do you have a place to be just ‘you’? Is there a place where you can meet yourself?
You need a space spend time with yourself, have an internal dialogue, do yoga, meditate or engage in a creative pursuit. Every home should have a place to de-stress and nurture the soul.
This peaceful place should be your little retreat away from the hustle and bustle of life. Spending few minutes here every day will make you feel calm and happy.
- You yearn for some quiet time and space?
- Connect with your soul
- Enjoy creativity
- Slow Down
Would you like to create a space to unwind and re-align yourself? Your heart yearns for this space, right?
Is your mind arguing with your heart? Well my heart and mind also debated for a long time. Believe me creating a personal space just requires a change of perspective.
The word sanctuary comes from the Latin word sanctum. It refers to a private place for refuge and retreat from the everyday duties and responsibilities.
This will be a ‘corner of peace’ where you could read, write, meditate, knit, draw, paint or do whatever you like.
Creating such space can be simple without involving any elaborate changes. Whatever is ‘here’ and ‘now’ is what you require.
Do you feel?
- My house is too small
- I live in a rented apartment.
- I can’t make structural changes
- I don’t want to spend money
- I don’t have time
- I need to think about the family
You can create a sanctuary in a small or rented house without making any structural changes or spending money. This space will also enhance relationships.
Let imagination and curiosity rule and let go of any pre-conceived notions or ideas.
Take a journal and jot whatever you want. In the next blog we will see how to create a simple sanctuary.
