5 Ways to Create the Perfect Peace Corner

Choose a small side table or nightstand to serve as the base of your Peace Corner. This will be a place in your home where you can go to breathe and calm yourself in the face of stress or regular life anxiety.

Place a framed picture of a place that you associate with happiness or a very strong positive memory. This can be a family photo or an image of a park, a beach or any happy place for you!

Add objects that you find visually beautiful and soothing. A few examples might be seashells from a particularly memorable trip to the beach, a smooth rock from a hiking trip, a souvenir from a trip to a new country or even a well-designed perfume bottle.

Pick out a candle or some incense that you enjoy. Scent is a powerful tool that you can use to help calm and center yourself if you are feeling overwhelmed or just a bit stressed out. Having a few bottles of essential oil in your peace corner can be helpful as well, especially if you are lucky enough to have an aroma infuser to truly immerse yourself in the restorative smells of lavender or gardenia.

Last (but most definitely not least!), remember to pick out a comfortable pillow or bolster so you have a soft and welcoming surface to sit on when you are taking advantage of your peace corner! The idea is to create a space that is a refuge, a sanctuary from the fast-paced, fight or flight of everyday life. Take a deep even breath in through your nose and let yourself let out a deep sigh as you exhale through your mouth. Peace.
