Life is full of enough surprises and obligations to make anyone crazy. Especially now that school has started, families always have places to be and things to do, and you don’t want to be the one that burns out.
One of the best ways to avoid schedule burnout is to make sure you have time to pause and refuel yourself. We do this by taking breaks, turning off phones and media, making ourselves a cup of tea or juice and even grabbing a book or a journal.
Some people will do this at the kitchen table or in the bedroom, but we’ve found it’s better and more effective to have a designated space that you know is only meant for peaceful pausing and getting your energy back.
You deserve to have a space where you can get away, curl up with a book and refuel. Escape the realities of your everyday life by adding a reading nook to your home. Here you can have the perfect combination of style, comfort and just the right light. However, the biggest reason people don’t have a reading nook in their home, is the same reason they need one! They are mentally exhausted and just can’t think, much less – create a space to refuel. So we want to take the guess work out of it and help you plan it easily and to your taste. At Unique Home Building, we know how important it is for your home to feel individual to you, and if these ideas get you excited but you want even more, please call us and one of our contractors will be happy to help you out!
All you need is a small corner with a comfortable chair to really create the ambience needed for rest and rejuvenation. Some additions that add to the calmness would be soft lights, a house plant, a throw blanket, and perhaps a shelf for holding books, some writing tools and trinkets that keep you serene.
It’s very easy and will give you so much peace of mind as you head deeper into the year. Not sure where to start? No problem, just reach out and the contractors at Unique Home Building will help you get clear!
