Having a home we love is a form of sacred self care. We may not love *everything* about our physical home.... but we can still create spaces we love by focusing on what brings us joy and meets our needs. Creating a personal haven that offers comfort and nourishment supports us in relaxing and recharging.
This room is my sacred space, my exercise room, and my work space. This room isn't perfect... it's the coldest room in my apartment and the one where I hear the most noise from the neighborhood and nearby streets. Even though it's not perfect, it is still my favorite room. I've set it up in such a way that even with the chilly temp and outside noise, I can find complete presence and comfort here.
I made this imperfect room work perfectly for me and my needs. I need to feel calm, present, and nourished while practicing my spiritual, self care, and self development rituals. AND I need to feel inspired and energized when working out and when doing my work.
So I meet all those needs in a way that works for me. I bring nature indoors and have plants along all four walls. I hung twinkle lights and use several desk lamps for soft and gentle lighting. I have a small speaker in here to play music and drown the noise when needed. I have several blankets scattered around the room for warmth. Decor is mostly the plants, but I do display a few other things that have personal and spiritual significance. No matter which purpose my room is fulfilling at any moment, it is arranged in a way to support me.
There isn't a right or wrong way to create the spaces we need in our home. What matters is what will work for us.
