Wellness at Home
Wellbeing is a word that’s used often when talking about the workplace, the gym, and even the great outdoors, but how often do we talk about wellbeing in the home? For many of us, our home is our sanctuary. But do we really spend enough time ensuring that it is remains a cosy, relaxing refuge from the day to day bustle of modern life? We’ve looked at how we can all improve our wellbeing at home.
For a lot of us, the living room is the hub of the home. For this reason, it’s important that it is a comfortable, calming space for the whole family to enjoy. Let’s start with the furniture. There’s nothing worse than sitting down in the evening to read a good book and not being comfortable. A supportive, stylish, and comfortable sofa is a staple in the living room. If your sofa is no longer providing you with the comfort that you need, take a look at our current range (which have been handmade in the UK!) and pay us a visit to test them out for yourself. They are available in a range of fabrics and colours so you can be sure to find the perfect one to fit your home interior.
Why not also try adding some candles or fresh flowers to your living space to help invoke a sense of calm?
You’ve probably heard us talk about it a lot before, but a good sleep routine is essential for your overall wellbeing. It’s so vital that you have a comfortable, clean, supportive mattress to make sure that you are in the best position to get a good night’s sleep. This is a subject we’re very passionate about. That’s why this September we’re supporting the Sleep Councils annual campaign – Sleeptember – by raising awareness of the importance of sleep. If you are no longer finding your mattress comfortable, or if you have had it for more than 7 years, it’s time for a new one. Visit us in store and let us help you pick the perfect mattress to suit your needs.
For the perfect sleep haven, think about having a bath before bed, banning electricals like phones and tablets from the bedroom, and making sure the room is clean and clutter-free.
So we’ve covered how we can make small changes to both the living room and the bedroom to improve our wellbeing at home, but what about another hub of the household – the kitchen? According to the Mental Health Foundation, “there are many psychological, social and biological benefits of eating meals with other people”, so consider making family mealtimes part of your daily routine. We love cooking and eating as a family, using locally sourced produce where we can. Mealtimes make us feel more connected to others, so think about using your kitchen/dining space to create healthy meals for the whole family to enjoy.
