We all need a time-out every now and then and there’s never been a better time for people to open up and tap in with their own mental health and wellbeing. Having a safe haven where you can escape the world and get away from everything is recommended and especially somewhere that you can switch your phone off and go off-grid.
Life’s so hectic and it can feel like you never get to switch-off, so we’ve put together some ideas for your garden room that we think can help to boost your wellbeing and give you some time to relax.
Sitting down with a good book and escaping into another world is one of life’s greatest pleasures. And we don’t know about you, but with the amount of other distractions around, it feels like there’s no time to unwind in a book sometimes.
Reading is so beneficial, for lots of different reasons and one of them is how it can stimulate your mind and allow you to relax at the same time. So, next time you’re thinking about popping Netflix on, why not retreat to your garden room and pull out a bestseller instead.
Having a space to simply unwind, relax and not think about much is integral to good mental health. You might be into meditation or yoga, in which case, a garden room is ideal for clearing your mind and doing some mental and physical exercises.
Decorating your garden room with a tranquil, neutral colour scheme or something that uplifts you can give you a nice break from the rest of your home and turn your space into a special section, separate from the rest of the hustle and bustle.
Having a dedicated space for socialising with friends and family is great. Sometimes you want to have some deep and meaningful chats and it can be difficult to do that if your home is a busy place and you can’t get any privacy. A cosy garden room is a safe space for anyone to chat about anything they’re going through.
The key to good mental health and wellbeing is feeling like you can talk to someone and chat about your emotions – getting yourself a good cup of tea and being able to chat about issues on your mind with a friend or family member can make you and them feel a lot better about things.
Put the Garden in Garden Room
Plants and flowers have a way of making people feel more positive and uplifted. It can be because you’ve got something to nurture and look after, or it can just be the appearance of some vibrant, colourful flowers. Whatever the reason, turning your garden room into a space to plant some new flowers and vegetation can be great for your wellbeing and look really cool too.
Having a personal zen-like space to concentrate on growing plants can give you a real sense of accomplishment and is a good way to switch-off from any negative thoughts and feelings.
