5 Ways to Create Daily Calming Routines with Biophilic Design
In today's fast-paced world, staying connected to nature is more important than ever to maintain our well-being and inner peace. Embracing biophilic design and engaging with natural interior elements can help us create a serene indoor environment that encourages moments of calm that soothe the mind and boost the energy to resume our day in a healthier and happier state.
Let’s explore five ways to create daily calming routines using biophilic design elements that help disconnect from the world's distractions and reconnect with the soothing elements of nature. Even for just a brief pause, these practices offer you the opportunity to find moments of tranquillity and well-being.
1. Morning Meditation Practice
Begin your day with a grounding meditation session. Find a quiet spot, light a natural beeswax candle and sit in a quiet place, surrounded by your plants, looking out at nature or at your biophilic artwork. Choose a soothing, nature-inspired sound or play a Tibetan bowl if you have it and take some time to focus on your breath. The soft, warm glow of the candlelight and the views of nature create a peaceful ambiance and allow you to center yourself, making it easier to reconnect with your natural self.
2. Greenefy your Workspace
If you work from home or in an office, incorporate nature into your space. Introduce easy-care potted plants, a small tabletop miniature garden or a preserved moss bowl. The presence of greenery in your workspace can reduce stress and increase your sense of well-being, providing a serene escape from the world's demands.
3. Engage with Nature
Take a small break to engage with nature, whether through touching your moss frame, your moss bowl, your wooden desktop or simply caring for your potted plants. Those sensory stimuli and active engagement with nature can boost your energy levels and make you restart your day with a positive attitude.
4. Enjoy your Relaxation Nook
Designate a cozy corner in your home as a relaxation nook, complete with a comfortable chair, soft lighting, and your favorite moss wall art piece. It's the perfect spot to unwind with a good book, enjoy a cup of herbal tea, or simply sit and contemplate. Lighting a relaxing incense has a profound effect on your relaxation, creating a mindful moment by looking at the incense smoke. These reverse-flow incense burners create a dance of smoke that helps us to be grounded and in the present moment.
5. Evening Wind Down with Dim Lights
As your day comes to an end, take a moment to disconnect from the world by dimming the lights in your home. Choose natural, low-intensity lighting options like salt lamps, amber bulbs, or candlelight. Spend this time reflecting on your day, practicing gratitude, and re-centering yourself. Dim, natural lighting creates a calming atmosphere for your evening wind-down routine.
Creating restorative spaces and actually engaging with nature and biophilic décor in them not only soothe our senses but also rejuvenate our minds and bodies.
Imagine coming home after a long, tiring day and immersing yourself in a space that replicates the calming ambience of a tranquil forest or a serene beach. Sounds enticing, right?
