How to Create Perfect Spots for Relaxation Around Your Home

Jan 26, 2015

Most of us are chronically stressed – constantly over worked and with very little time to be able to just relax and recover. We come home from tough days in the office and then more often than not need to cook dinner, clean the kitchen and respond to e-mails. Sometimes it seems like you can go months without getting the chance to just sit down and read a book or get some shuteye and this is nearly enough to drive us mad.

Moreover, it’s not very good for our health. If you are constantly stressed and constantly on-the-go then your immune system will likely be exhausted and weakened leaving you prone to getting ill. Likewise, having a constant stream of adrenaline and cortisol pumping through your system can take its toll on your heart and on your mental health. We need to be able to just relax sometimes.

In this article then, we’re going to look at one of the best ways you can do this: by creating spaces in your home that are designed specifically for relaxing and that are perfectly conducive to recharging your batteries. Read on for some examples of relaxing spaces you can create around the house…

A Reading Corner

Reading a good book is a great way to enjoy some escapism and to forget about the things that are making you stressed. Books are also great because they completely engage our attention and force us to switch off that ‘inner monologue’, thereby helping us to feel calm and at ease.

To create a perfect space for reading around the home, choose a corner of one of your rooms and place a comfortable arm chair and a lamp there on a coffee table. The lamp will help you to read but it will also create an ‘oasis of light’, meaning that only this one section of the room is lit up and you can’t see ‘out’ into the rest of the room. Right away this creates the sensation of being in your own little ‘bubble’. Add a footstool to kick back on and a cup of tea on that coffee table and you have somewhere perfect to escape to after a busy day. Arrange some books and other items in the area too that help you to feel at ease.

If you want to go one-step further, then why not get a massage chair and enjoy getting a back-rub every morning while you read the paper?

The Garden

When they’re done well, gardens present the perfect spot for recharging your batteries and enjoying some peace and quiet. The best strategy here is to try and keep your garden relatively minimalist by reducing the number of plants and other things that you have to maintain. Instead, keep a nice patch of green grass and get some lawn sprinklers to ensure it stays that way. Now get yourself a deck chair or a floor cushion for the garden and have a small garden table for a nice cocktail or cold glass of juice. Sit back, close your eyes and soak up those rays!

For the evenings, look into getting a sheltered area with a comfortable seat, a heater and a light. Especially when it rains, sitting under here can be very therapeutic and another perfect spot to read or think.

The Bathroom

The bathroom is somewhere you have to spend time at least twice a day, so why not turn it into your own personal spa? Investing a little more in a waterfall shower or a spa tub will mean you can really indulge yourself whenever you go for a wash and feel all the stress and tension leave your muscles. Throw in a waterproof music player, some nice scents and a modern design and you’ll have somewhere that really revitalizes you every day.

Considerations for Finding Wedding Transportation

Jan 26, 2015

When you first start planning a wedding you will likely have no idea just how involved the whole thing is. There are countless different factors to consider at each stage of the way and no-one can really prepare you for just how much the whole thing is likely to cost or just how long it will take to organize.

In fact, if you take any single one element for your wedding planning, then you will find that there are enough different factors to fill an entire book. Wedding transportation is no different – though it may seem like a straightforward idea, this really couldn’t be further from the truth and there are all kinds of things you need to remember when you look into it. Read on and we’ll discuss some of the most important considerations for wedding transportation to help you make the right choice.

The Car

The type of car you want is the most obvious consideration and the first thing you’ll have to decide. Do you want a modern sports car? Or something a little more classic looking? Do you want something with lots of space in the back – and just how many people are you going to have riding here? You also need to think about the bride’s dress and how easily she is going to be able to get in and out of the car. If she has a long ‘train’ then she’s going to probably want a slightly lower-down car.

What’s also important is the color and this right away is a more involved decision than you possibly will have realized. For instance, you need to ensure that the color you choose for your car is going to be one that stands out well in photographs. White is perhaps the most popular color for a wedding car, seeing as it’s very classic looking and will match the dress. However, some brides will prefer not to choose white cars because they don’t show up as well in photographs and cause the dress to look almost camouflaged. For these reasons some couples will prefer a ‘sky blue’ color or similar.

Remember, there are two different cars for your wedding transportation too – one will be the car that the bride and groom travel in (and the bride and father on the way to the ceremony venue) and the other will be a car for the bridesmaids and mother of the bride.

So you’ll also want to make sure that the colors of the two cars work well together when they arrive and park next to each other. Chances are that your wedding will have a color scheme which will consist of a primary and secondary color. If you can find wedding cars in those two colors, then this will mean they’re sure to match and it will help you to demonstrate more attention to detail and a more consistent design language.

Decoration

The cars will each also have a fair amount of decoration which should further enhance their look. For instance, you will usually have a bunch of flowers in the back of the car which will help to make it look extra special.

At the same time, the cars will also often have ribbons at the front. This again helps to show that the car is for a celebration and is an important additional touch. Now you’re going to have to choose a ribbon (or two) that matches the car and you’ll want to think about how this all works with the color scheme and the bridesmaids’ dresses.

Price and Fuel

Once all that is decided you of course need to think about the cost and whether you can afford your dream wedding car. Remember that the distance the cars have to travel makes a big difference, so if you can find a service nearer your church/venue that will often knock down the price considerably!
