// on making space for ourselves //
Coping with the constant barrage of fear and the 24-hour news cycle was not an easy task in 2020. “Self-care rituals such as massages, meditation, yoga, sports activities or just hanging out with friends were compromised in 2020,” says Lauren. “Losing those things really underscores how important they are to how we thrive, not just survive.”
“When we see our home as an extension of us and not just a place to put our stuff, we can begin to take a deeper ownership of the energy in it.”
Lauren notes that, although we are adaptable, we must be careful to not get trapped in routines that ignore our core needs. “Having a plan for engaging our personal space can be a great way to prepare for changes outside of our control,” says Lauren. “If your home is a sanctuary, it can be a constant, a reliable place that remains entirely within your control.
You can change the aesthetic with paint and furnishings that you may not have tried before. Create a sense of play and whimsy. Bring in elements of nature, such as plants and water. If you have a balcony or a patio, create an escape or respite that you can hang out in; or better still, a place to invite friends back into your home.
When we see our home as an extension of us and not just a place to put our stuff, we can begin to take a deeper ownership of the energy in it. We are creators, and with proper focus and intention we can create the energetic home of our dreams.”
