The change of season always offers a wonderful opportunity to reassess your life on a grand scale, from relationships to the new school year, your current job to your wardrobe. And perhaps the most important of areas to consider these days, are your interiors. It’s healthy and informative to have this reassessment experience a few times each year in order to grow, evolve, and adapt to the changing times and changing seasons. Life is all about flexibility and personal growth, and with the changing of each season, crucial life transitions and adaptations take form whether we realize it or not. This fall how can you ask yourself those questions about your life, and what actions can you take to meet your ever-changing needs and desires?
Physical and Mental Well Being
Without question, one of the most important personal areas to address is your current mental and physical health. For without these two entities in alignment and in good health, everything else in our lives can easily crumble.
Ask yourself, are you getting enough outside time? Is exercise a part of your weekly and daily routine? Are you journaling or otherwise talking to important people in your life about how you feel? Is yoga, martial arts, or dance a practice that you utilize to achieve inner peace? There are so many tools and methods available in our modern-day to get ourselves back on track and closer to finding inner solitude. Especially so during these trying times during a worldwide pandemic, it is so important to make sure that you are receiving the nourishment and help that you need to keep going.
One way to introduce more healthy physical exercise/movement into your daily routine could be to create a home gym. During COVID when most gyms are closed or otherwise have limited capacity, you can take it upon yourself to bring fitness to you! No gym commute, no sweaty ride home, no shared showers. A home gym allows for increased focus, comfort, and cleanliness. If you don’t have a spare bedroom, do not worry. You can easily construct a small home gym using easy-to-install sliding glass wall partitions or glass room dividers to create that physical space and sanctuary you want for your workout room. This could also double as a yoga studio or a meditation room within your home in which you can escape to without the disruption of home life. By installing floor-to-ceiling glass wall partitions, you’ll have the flexibility to open and close off entire rooms within seconds! These special solutions are a breeze to install and take down, offering you the flexibility necessary during these uncertain times. You can swiftly save the potential cost and disruption of real construction while achieving the same thing with sliding room dividers.
Question Your Surroundings
The next area of your life worth considering is your surrounding indoor environment. Is your home a place that you love coming back to at the end of a long day? Do you find sanctuary and solace when entering your home? Or does your home life make you feel sad or tired? Is your space fresh, modern, and contemporary, or is it sorely outdated? Is there enough light throughout your home? Depending on how you answered these questions, you may be in need of some interior decorating/remodeling this fall. These preliminary questions are all great indicators of direction and which areas to tackle first when considering your interiors. After all, we all want to exist in beautiful, comfortable spaces that fill us up rather than detracts from our well-being.
If you start an interior remodeling project this season, however large or small, here are some classic problem areas:
- Not enough natural light
- Crowded spaces
- General clutter
- Lack of interior design cohesion
- Not enough natural elements/greenery
- Impersonal art curation
Now ask yourself how you could remedy these larger issues. Perhaps installing translucent glass wall partitions, or sliding glass barn doors within your communal rooms would help to bring in more natural light, as well as help to open the space up for entertaining or for family nights in. As we evolve to maintain increased fluidity in our lifestyles and schedules, our interiors should mimic this flexibility. Wall partitions that move can help with this.
Additionally, consider integrating more florals and house plants indoors to freshen up the air, and create a beautiful sanctuary that pays homage to the outdoors (even in the most urban environment). Plants have a profound effect on our mental and physical wellbeing and are proven to increase mental focus and serotonin in the body. A simple, affordable solution is available at any home and garden store!
