Over the years, we’ve seen our homes become offices, classrooms, and home gyms. Needless to say, it’s a lot.

But, despite all of these new hats our houses are suddenly wearing, there’s one thing our homes should always be: a safe haven.

Our spaces should be joyful, calming, productive, comfortable, balanced. And it’s a lot to ask of any home—especially smaller spaces. So, we decided to ask some of our favorite wellness and interiors experts to see how they find zen in their homes.

How to Find Zen at Home with Lauren Young

Make Space for Me Time

Lauren Young is the founder of Sage House and a Certified Holistic Health Coach. Here’s how she finds zen at home.

“As a new mom, it can be hard for me to find zen at home, but I try to fit in time for myself. Daily rituals and routines can really help clear my mind, allow me to relax, and set me up for success for the day. I lie in bed every morning before my son gets up and do 15-20 minutes of meditation; it can really help evaporate those negative thoughts that can creep into my head. I use the Headspace or Calm apps on my phone. After I meditate, I make hot water with lemon and sip on it before I roll out my yoga mat and light a candle or palo santo. Practicing yoga, even if it’s just 15 minutes, allows me to activate my body and mind before work.”

How to Find Zen at Home with Stephanie Simpson

Have a Separate Space for Work

Stephanie Simpson is an artist and educator. Here’s how she finds zen at home.

“It’s important that we create a separate space for work while we are at home. This can be done even if you don’t have a lot of space in your home. By being intentional as to where ‘work’ gets done and where ‘recreation’ happens in your home, you create different energy spaces. It literally can be a specific chair and table that is your ‘workspace’ and only work happens there. That way when you leave that space you are also leaving that energy there and can allow yourself to transition to a new space for relaxation/restoration or engaging in your recreation time.”

How to Find Zen at Home with Kylee Trunck

Get Organized

Kylee Trunck is an interior designer. Here’s how she finds zen at home.

“Have you ever felt like you couldn’t think in an unorganized office or at a cluttered desk? Just like mental clutter raises anxiety, physical clutter in your home has the same effect, so make sure that your first step in achieving calm is restoring order to all of your ‘stuff.’ Invest in storage pieces or even just small baskets to help things stay tucked away. Like Marie Kondo says, ‘everything should have a place.”
