It’s important to free yourself and get away from the hassles of work, the nagging at home and the pressures faced against us daily. Our minds are swamped by data, overstimulated and overstretched. It’s ok to run away and break out from it all but you don’t have to spend a fortune on holidays or yoga retreats. All you need to do is find your corner in the home. A place you can flee and have some shhhhh time. We have all heard how men need to go into their ‘man cave’. My dad’s cave was his garage my boyfriend disappears to the toilet and reads papers and magazines. But it’s not just men who need to find quiet time. Women and children need a moment to recharge. According to the University of Michigan Institute for Social Research, it reports an increase in children suffering stress and breakdown. For our wellbeing we need to turn off the television, step away from the computer, flick on some music, read or just sit quietly and let your mind have some time to take you on a journey. It’s the time you can redefine and ask ‘Who am I’? Here are some examples how people around the world have found their corner.
