Here’s How to create a calm space, quickly
There are some days when you need to create a calm space quickly and easily. Creating a calm space quickly can help you feel more relaxed and centered. And I have the tips to help you get there!
Here are some steps you can take to create a calm space, quickly:
Clear off all counters, coffee tables, and dining room or kitchen tables. Any visible clutter, as a cluttered environment can contribute to feelings of chaos. Put away items that are out of place, especially those on large surfaces.
2. Dim the Lights
If possible, dim the lights or use soft, warm lighting. Bright, harsh lighting can create a more tense atmosphere.
3. Add Ambiance with Candles & Lighting
Candles are another great way to add warmth and a cozy & warm feel to your space to quickly bring in that sense of Calm. They create a soft and relaxing atmosphere that makes you just want to cozy up with a good book, popcorn movie, or snuggle with your fur baby or loved one. I have my lovely lavender candle on my nightstand, which helps me fall asleep.

4. Soft Music or Sounds
Play calming music or nature sounds in the background. Gentle instrumental music or sounds like flowing water or chirping birds can help create a serene ambiance. I love my Google Home that I request coffee house music, feng shui sounds on Spotify. Here’s my fav lists you can enjoy listening to!

5. Scented Elements
Use calming scents like lavender, chamomile, or vanilla. You can use scented candles, essential oil diffusers, or room sprays, I even use Popcorn! Instant smile! Check out Alenas.ca for more lovely scented 100% Toxin Free candles.
6. Comfortable Seating
Arrange a comfortable chair or cushions where you can sit and relax. This can be a great spot for meditation or simply unwinding. Throw that favorite blanket over your chair, fluff that fav pillow, and put those feet up! AHH!
7. Nature Connection
If possible, incorporate elements from nature. A small potted plant, a vase of flowers, or even a nature-themed painting can help create a connection to the outdoors. Goal brings in a piece of nature, or something green or fake florally into every room. Balance.
8. Breathing Exercises
Take a few deep, slow breaths. Inhale deeply through your nose, hold for a few seconds, and then exhale slowly through your mouth. This can help calm your nervous system. Need help read this!
9. Mindful Focus
Find a focal point for your attention, such as a calming image or object. Gently focus your attention on it, letting other thoughts fade away.
10. Visual Elements
Use soothing colors in your space. Soft blues, greens, and neutral tones can contribute to a calm atmosphere. Beige, earth tones, and taupes can be very calming too..even soft flowing water.
11. Soft Textures
Incorporate soft textures like blankets, cushions, or rugs. These can create a cozy and inviting feeling.
12. Limit Distractions
Turn off or silence your phone and any other potential sources of distraction. This will help you fully immerse yourself in the calming space.
13. Personal Touches
Add personal items that bring you joy or comfort, like a favorite book, a cherished photo, or an inspiring quote.
14. Quick Tidying
Quickly straighten up any surfaces in the space, like tabletops and counters, to create a more organized appearance.
15. Close Your Eyes
If you’re comfortable with it, you can close your eyes and practice a short mindfulness meditation. Focus on your breath and let go of any tension.
16. Set an Intention
Before entering the space, set an intention for what you want to achieve in this moment of calm. It could be relaxation, reflection, or simply taking a break.
Remember, creating a calm space is a personal process, and what works for one person may not work for another.

Reminder to Pin this for later!
For me, this is my favorite!
Light Your Favorite Candle or Adjust the Lights. Lighting is SO important. Are your bulbs too bright? Is the light too strong? Can you move a floor or table lamp to bring light to a different level?
Add a dimmer to your bedroom or living room for some mood lighting. I always light my favorite candle, made by alenas.ca.
It truly makes a HUGE difference.
