Omg! This is a topic that I am particularly big on. It’s extremely important to have an area designated just for you. We all play many different roles daily as parents, significant others, etc. However, I believe that we cannot give our best to others if we are not at our best to begin with. Think about it, how can you offer someone your best if you are drained and running on empty? It is vitally important for us to get away from the chaos and de-stress, hence the need for personal space.
Your personal territory should be somewhere isolated, even if it’s for only 30 minutes to an hour out of your day. It can be a secret closet, a vacant room in the house, or somewhere outside with a view. You should personalize this space by decorating it to fit your personal style and leaving your unique footprint. In my honest opinion, the most important thing about the personal space, is it should be a place that inspires you. When you enter this space, you should automatically relax, regroup, and allow your creative juices to flow. Start planning your next move or create a vision board to display as a daily reminder of your goals, dreams, and aspirations. If you are utilizing an outdoor open space, start a vision journal to have in this inspirational zone. Also, you could light a few candles, play some nice music and sip on your favorite wine (or coffee if you prefer) to set the tone. If you are feeling completely burnt out and want to dedicate this time to relaxing, pick up a good book or watch your favorite tv show to unwind. As previously mentioned, make this a private space for you to be alone. No distractions or disturbances. Get possessive and protect your space. Being secluded helps you focus and be free in your thought process. Become inspired anew when you enter your territory. This will help on your road to evolving!
