Room for Home Activities

Creating room for home activities while staying in place during the COVID-19 Pandemic can help you to enjoy your pursuits and accomplish your set goals. What I found that works for me first and foremost is moving all activities outside the bedroom. Your bedroom is your sanctuary and should be designated for rest and relaxation. If you have to work from home, try setting up a work space at your table or an office if that is available to you. Surround yourself with fun photos or knick knacks that inspire creativity. When work is over, leave it there or fully put it away. This way your brain knows your work is completed when you leave that space. When it comes to my hobbies, especially reading, I have created a comfortable corner in my living room that is just for reading. The same can be done for art or any other interest you may have outside of work and sleep. When I move into this space, my mind prepares itself for enjoyment because I have created an inviting environment. The same goes for working out. I have set up a space on my back porch that is just for exercise, so when I go there, my mind and body are ready to move. Having a space already setup motivates me and reminds me that my health is important. For some, finding additional space may be challenging right now. A great way to change up your space is to possibly change the angle you direct the room. You can add different pillows, tables, etc to give you a new feel to the space. We are creatures of habit and designating spaces for activities can assist you in creating positive habits while having to stay home. Give it a try and let me know how it goes. Stay safe and stay healthy!
