In an ideal world, our home is a place of peace away from the hectic outside world. Unfortunately, ideal worlds don’t exist!
But even if ideal worlds don’t exist, your home can still be a place of peace. You can make it a sanctuary away from the stress and struggle of life.
In order to make your home a sanctuary, you have to put in a little effort, but thankfully, it’s easier than you think.

If you work from home, work in one dedicated space. Also, try never to work in the same room as you sleep, otherwise, you’ll associate your bedroom as a workspace.
5. Create time to decompress. Do you rush home from work and immediately take on more responsibilities and chores? Instead, allow yourself even 10 or 15 minutes to relax and unwind before you begin tasks for the home. Doing so will mark a clear separation in your mind between work and home. You might want to just lie on your bed for a few minutes, read a book, or take a shower. This short time will rejuvenate…
