Following on from my recent post of some of our updated spaces including our art and sewing areas, we worked on our ‘Peace Corner this morning’. It’s not the most attractive set up, but it’s practical. We spend so much time at home down stairs, which is our main living area, so it made sense to create this nook here.
I needed to find a spot where the items are accessible, not hidden away but also not in an area that is in the way. This little nook is next to my downstairs desk and there is plenty of open space surrounding it to move about, especially when doing yoga. We have a large rug that I bring out in the colder months (it is now Autumn in Australia) so this will also provide some extra comfort from the cold tiles.
I have been on the look out for children’s affirmation cards for a while now and finally came across these beautiful Nurture Cards created by Roxanne, a mother of two. We received our set at the beginning of this week and my six year old took to them straight away. I think they are going to get lots of use. I wish I had been introduced to cards like this when I was of preschool/early school age.
Do you have a nook space similar to this in your home, whether it be a quieter corner with books for reading or for listening to music maybe with headphones? I would love to hear any suggestions if you have some.
