5 Ways To Turn Your Home Into A Personal Weekend Retreat
Achieve a laid-back and casual vibe with these tips
Whether you have an office job or you're a dedicated homemaker, the work you do during the week can be tough—hectic schedules, deadlines, and chores can get you down.
While we all wish we could go on a weekly vacation, the reality is we have more important responsibilities that we need to prioritize. There's no need to worry, a little detour shouldn't stop you from being able to rest and recharge for the coming days. Check out these five things you can do to turn your home into a relaxing retreat:
1. Light a couple of scented candles.
Aside from adding a lovely touch to a space, candles have the power to elevate the senses and trigger positive energy. Use a combination of jasmine, lavender, and vanilla to create a calming vibe.
Sign out of your work email, hide your laptop, or put your phone on silent mode—these are some of the things you can do to give your brain a break. Trust us, you won't miss out on anything by going on a 48-hour digital detox.
3. Let natural light in.
Stepping outside to hear the birds sing is still the best option, but if you're stuck in a high-rise home you can settle with letting the sunshine in. Consider removing heavy drapes and replacing it with sheer curtains for an airy feel.
Seeing piles of dirty laundry and old papers around the home will surely put you in a bad mood. Find time within the week to get the rooms sparkling by swiping countertops, putting dishes away, and folding clothes.
5. Build a relaxation corner.
We all have a favorite spot at home that we hold most dear—an escape of some sort when we want to spend a well-deserved Me-Time. Make sure it's as cozy as it can be by adding a few fluffy pillows, throws, and a stack of your favorite reads.
