As the seasons change on this most unprecedented and life-changing of years, it’s time to consider how we can best plan and execute our self-care over the colder months of this year. As with all cooler months, we tend to spend a little more time inside and a little less time in our own homes. This is only likely to be exacerbated more by the coronavirus and the fact that our friends and family are isolating. As such, here are four calming trends to think about investing in this winter.
It might sound a little basic, but the lighting in your home – especially in the winter months – cannot be overstated as a source of calm and tranquility. Ideally, what you’re attempting to achieve in your home, with variable lighting, is a number of different zones of light. You want bright light to help wake you up in the morning, and low light to set a mood in the evening. You might even want different colored light – in the bathroom and bedroom – to help you relax and kick back with a good book. Think about changing your lighting to make your home environment more relaxing this winter.
