What does it mean to feel “Zen”? In short relaxed, peaceful and calm. Many people describe the feeling of being “Zen” like being at a spa; when your mind and body feel tranquil whilst completely stress-free. Similar to feeling “Zen”, a “Zen Den” is a place where you can go and take time out for yourself. Whether it’s by a bookcase under the stairs, a spot on the garden lawn or a beanbag in your bedroom.
With lock down making our sofas the new work station, you may be wondering how to create the perfect “Zen Den” whilst being busy at home. Here’s three tips on ways to make your surroundings more “Zen” with Eyeko.
1: Find Your Space
Whether you’re an early riser, or love to lounge about for hours, find a specific spot in your home that you can call your own. Once you’ve found it keep it simple, and fill it with things you love. Pictures, plants, a journal, anything you like to create the perfect aura for you.
2: Add Essential Oils
Bring the outdoors to you! It’s no secret essential oils are a no.1 go-to product when it comes to feeling relaxed. Think eucalyptus, lavender and lemon scents, all fresh and vibrant in the air. Whatever fragrances are your favourite include these in your “Zen Den” as infusers or oil drops on a pillow case. Don’t be afraid to try new scents and change up your environment from time to time with new fragrances.
3: Read, Write and Relax
No “Zen Den” would be complete without a few classic home comforts like pillows, blankets and low lighting. Make it warm and welcoming. Read, write and relax whatever way you choose. Have a bath, practise Yoga or play with new makeup. Take time out of your day to give yourself some self-care.
