Life can feel a bit gloomy at the moment – there are lots of pressures and strains on households up and down the country and we could all do with a good pick me up. That’s why doing what you can to protect your mental health and wellbeing is really important and there are lots of things you can do.
Your garden room can also provide a fantastic opportunity to keep your wellbeing stable and offer a safe haven for everyone else in your household too.
So, how can your garden room help to improve your general wellbeing?
Peace and Quiet
Sometimes everything can get a bit too much. Life can feel very busy and loud, it’s difficult to hear yourself think sometimes, isn’t it? Having a space that you can escape to, so you can spend some time doing what you enjoy, or even just having a quiet moment to yourself is good for the soul. Making your garden room as tranquil and relaxing as possible is the first step towards making a space that you can retreat to and take a big breath in and out.
When you need a moment and everything gets on top of you, knowing that you can physically detach yourself from everything else going on and give yourself time out to calm down is incredibly helpful.
A physical work-out can be fantastic for your mental health and wellbeing, the research behind this is extensive. Turning your garden room into a home gym can be a worth-while investment, in terms of saving on gym fees over time, but also an investment in your own health. You’ve got the space and time to yourself to work out in the way that you want and at a pace that suits you. It’s also completely upto you to decide on the type of equipment you want to exercise with, to make it a really comfortable experience.
It doesn’t have to be a gym either, you could turn a garden room space into your own yoga studio for more mindful workouts. Using a space to meditate and relax, whilst also exercising is fantastic for your mental health.
Using music to relax or unwind to is also a tried and tested method of improving your mood. Escaping the rest of your household to listen to the type of music you want to at whatever volume can really help you to blow off some steam after a long day. You could even soundproof the walls if you want to play music really loudly! Or if you want to play your own instruments to your hearts content.
A garden room on its own can’t solve every issue with wellbeing that you might have, so always seek professional help if you need it. But for more advice around garden rooms and what you can do with them, please get in touch with our experienced team at Bridge Timber today.
