Turn your home into a sanctuary

Every woman deserves a personal sanctuary in her home-- a place to read, listen to music, meditate or just be by herself with her thoughts. Here's how to create one of your own:
  1. Select a spot. Find a quiet area where the light appeals to you. If you have a whole room to use, great; even if you don't, you can use a small area such as a window seat or a corner in your office.
  2. Take away all unnecessary objects. Creating a sanctuary is all about carving out a space where you don't have to accomplish anything. Only keep those items that help you unwind.
  3. Take a deep, sweet breath. Including a few sensory features can promote an ambiance that's different from the rest of your home. You can treat yourself to fragrant flowers, candles or aromatherapy oils. Additionally, think about installing a great piece of art or interesting photos, some CDs that take you away and a velvet pillow that's a pleasure to touch. Give yourself the luxury of tuning into your senses daily-- even if it's just for 10 minutes.
