Our society has forgotten an important thing, while focusing only on productivity and work: spoiling yourself a bit is important too to lead a healthy and balanced lifestyle. It is fundamental that we allow our brain to regenerate, to recharge our body batteries, with benefits for our health, relationships, productivity at work. We are not suggesting you should turn into an inconclusive and idle person, but we all should try to find some time during the day just for ourselves, to rest and relax. So what is the first place that comes to your mind when you think of relaxation and some time off? Majority of them have their answers as their home. Therefore, it is equally important to feel comfortable in the sofa you choose that would remain atleast a decade or more until you decide for a makeover. After the successful Habitat – Valencia Feria, we have picked some brands which we thought were refreshing with new designs and personalized concepts specializing in living room, lighting and other interior construction materials.

The busy lives that we live often lead us to neglect our hobbies and passions. Nonetheless, we need to try not to neglect them, and find time to dedicate to any hobby that you may have. Create an equipped workstation, save a corner of your house just for your hobby: like just a comfy armchair next to an elegant bookshelf. This will become your private place, the shelter from the outer world: where you can truly be yourself and indulge in an activity that makes you feel good, relaxed and regenerated.

Use these moments to clear your thoughts, to forget about the issues that are causing you stress. The best way to do that, is lay down on a comfy chaise longue chair, and look at life from a different perspective: the way the lazy bones do.
Several researchers found out that naps help inspiration, by producing a significant activity of the right brain hemisphere, the one associated with creativity, while the left remained quiet. To make your naps cozy and comfortable, designers have created hybrid sofas that are meant specifically to welcome you for your afternoon siesta. To make the nap atmosphere complete, choose a blackout curtain, soft cushions and always a soft blanket, preferably in relaxing shades such as blue or blue.
Here is another good place to relax: the bathtub! How many of us have one, but end up almost never using it? You should never give up the opportunity to soak into perfumed hot water for an hour. A long bath can transform in a moment of quiet and contemplation useful to free the mind from stress and thoughts. Personalize your bathroom your own way: choose pleasant colors and marble flooring to create a charming atmosphere. If you have a curtain around your tub, keep it closed: leave the noises out of your private moment. If you are lucky enough to have a Jacuzzi, the bubbly water will make your relax hour feel like a spa treatment. Ready to live your sweet lazy bones life?
