Changing your personal enviroment for your mental health.

I haven't blogged lately because I have been super busy with swapping the contents of two bedroom. One was the master bedroom and the other my weaving studio. Talk about a serious workout. It is so worth it! Our bedroom is now in the smaller bedroom, but it is now so serene and minimalist. Just our bed, 2 night stands. On the wall opposite the bed is a small shelf to hold the bed linens out of sight but convenient . On top of the shelf is a medium sized lamp and a lovely philodendron and tucked out of sight is a small air freshener. On the wall behind the bookshelf I am hanging art work that has special meaning for us. This way the first thing we see when we wake up are things that are meaningful to us. and positive and happy. A nice way to start the day off. The tranquility of the room is affecting both hubby and I in a very positive way.
Now as to the former master bedroom and now my weaving studio. It is much bigger, so my big floor loom is back there and we have a dining room again. The room is still a disaster, probably 2-3 weeks worth of organizing to do before I can weave on my floor loom. That is not a problem since I am working on small tapestries in the living room. I have a refurbished sewing table that is my workspace there. The nice thing about my new studio is that I have established a meditation/quiet corner. I have a comfy chair with pillows and afghans, a table to hold spiritual books on it along with a cup of tea. I put a good reading lamp behind the chair. This is my little sanctuary. Now all I have to do is to get the room organized so I can make use of it.
As result of these changes I am finding that the lack of clutter in the living room - now that all my weaving toys are out of the room and the zen like quality of the bedroom is resulting in my being much more relaxed and calm. The sense of serenity is WONDERFUL!!
