Finding Zen: Get in touch with your inner self

4 simple tips from Cube to make your home more relaxing

Life can be hectic especially for those living in cities like Hong Kong where fast pace lifestyle and limited space can often feel very stifling. For many, having a home they can fully relax in and reinvigorate themselves is very important so Cube came up with a few tips to help you relax at home, be it big or small.’


Declutter your home

Coming home to a messy and/or cramped apartment will not help you relax. Take a little time and pack away things into drawers or cupboards to give a cleaner and tidier look to your home. If you really have too much stuff to put away, consider whether you need all the stuff you have at home. Don’t worry! You don’t have to throw away things if you don’t want to. There are many storage options available, such as self storage that can help you. Start slow and just clear out a small part of your home to relax. It’s a good start and will help you establish the habit to improve the rest of your home later.


Create your own tranquil space

Once you have decluttered your home, you may want to select a certain area as your tranquil space. This is where you can relax and enjoy activities that helps you relax. Whether it’s a little bit of yoga, reading a book, listening to music or just a quick shut eye in a massage chair, locate the space that suits your Zen activity. As mentioned earlier, if you can’t declutter your entire home, just focusing on freeing up space for your Zen activity would already be a big win.


Ambient Lighting

Once you have the space, it’s also important to create the right ambience. Avoid harsh strong lighting, Instead, consider using lights that give a softer warmer feel. There are now lights which are marketed with the function of helping you relax. Although we don’t have an opinion of whether it works, there’s no harm in looking into it to see whether it works for you.


The Right Frame of Mind

Having a relaxing ambient space to come back to is most of the battle won already in your quest for a tranquil home. To help you get in the right frame of mind to relax though, it’s important to have a good focal point to help you enjoy what you’ve set up. From the right music, a painting that you like or even a sculpture / decoration that bring good happy memories, these things will help relieve the humdrum of the day more quickly. Remember that whatever the focal point, it should be something that helps calm the mind. Natural colours such as green and brown are often good choices in this. Bored already of the same painting? You can always get a few more and switch them round to give your home a fresh feel whenever you return. What to do with those paintings or items you are not currently displaying? There are always storage solutions that can help.



That’s all from our resident Cube Guru on relaxation. Hope you find it useful. Don’t forget to share it with your friends if you think it can help them!

    My first experience, Visa the lady assisted me patiently through every steps. She is not only approachable but very professional, … More putting herself in the customer's shoes and understanding all my doubts and answering all my questions patiently. She also followed up with my experience after using their service. Very good customer service, and I definitely will use their service again.
