What do you have in mind when you think of a serene space?
Possibly soothing music, pastel colours, muted lighting and tactile functional pieces made of bamboo or stone.
In today’s stressful world, where you have had to contend with Covid-19 and all the worries that it has brought, you may wish to create a serene space where you can simply commune with nature and yourself.
However, you may have an extended family and cannot find a corner that is your own.
Or you may work in a busy office environment where everyone talks at full volume and it feels as though you can’t get a minute’s peace.
How Can You Make a Serene Space?
You feel as though you are stretched too thin and will snap if you can’t escape into a quiet zone that is beautiful and calming.
You may not have the physical space to create a zen-like environment that you can escape to in order to clear your thoughts and reboot your mind.
However, there are other steps you can take, such as :
- Stimulate your senses
Every sense — sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch is important for a well-rounded feeling of peace and tranquility.
You may have a favorite item that you love to look at, such as a painting that you bought on vacation in a place you love to revisit in your mind.
If you have a set of melodious windchimes this can calm you as you listen to their tinkling in the breeze blowing through your windows.
Savor the taste of things you love to eat — think about what is stimulating your taste buds: the sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami. How does each one relate to the other to create a whole experience?
It’s strange how aromas can bring back memories of long-buried happy memories, sometimes even from childhood.
Try lighting an oil diffuser of essential oils that will fill you with joy and soothe away your stress.
Touch is a wonderful way to calm yourself. Think about stroking your pet and how relaxed it makes you as you run their soft fur through your fingers.
Or rubbing a smooth stone between your palms can send vibrations through your skin that make you feel connected to the Earth.
Caressing a beautiful piece of furniture made of wood or bamboo can bring to mind the loving work that went into its creation.
Feeling that you are in touch with Mother Earth is easy when you have an exquisite plant to tend.
You can fill a pretty vase with a bunch of fresh flowers from the market, or keep a single orchid in a pot on your bamboo desk.
The colours and aromas will fill your soul with peace.
When we connect with the environment, we feel we are a part of the cosmos.
Having an example of natural elements around us can make us breathe and be filled with happiness.
Imagine spending your working day at a beautiful bamboo desk that you will look forward to using.
The FlexiSpot Modish Standing Desk is the ideal item to make you feel serene and relaxed as you work.
It comes in two shapes, rectangular and curved, and five convenient sizes to fit any space:
- 48″ x 24″
- 55″ x 28″
- 60“ x 30”
- 72″ x 30″
- 78″ x 30″
The streamlined design of the legs and the soft edges mean you will not bruise yourself if you bump into the desk.
It has built-in safety features to protect you and your children, i.e., :
- Child lock
Once you have set the standing desk at the required height, you can activate the child lock. This will make it impossible for the desk height to be changed until the lock is deactivated.
- Anti collision
The Modish Standing Desk will detect and avoid any collisions that it senses may occur while the desk is being raised or lowered.
Not only is the desk attractive and clever, it has modern features to make your life convenient. These include:
- Smart Control Panel
The LED display is easy to read and comes with four preset memory settings, making it perfect for use by colleagues or family members. One press of the button, and the desk will move to the required height in seconds.
To keep you fit and healthy, you can set a timer that will remind you to change position from sitting to standing and vice versa. This is vital to keep your blood flowing, making you feel less stressed and overwhelmed.
- Cable Management
It’s very frustrating when cables from your computer or printer snake all over your desk. The Modish Standing Desk makes this a thing of the past with a built-in cable management groove underneath the desk that hides all the cables to your equipment.
- Socket Outlet
Having to share power outlets can be very annoying if you have an urgent job and you can’t plug in the printer.
With the Modish Standing Desk you have dedicated socket outlets, as well as two USB portals (type A and C).
- Additional Features
The Modish Standing Desk has a load capacity of 275lbs, enabling you to keep everything you need in one place — on your desk.
The desk will remain stable and flexible, even when it is set to its full height and capacity.
The desk can be set to three different heights between 23.6” – 49.2”.
Having a space that you can call your own will comfort and soothe you, allowing you to regroup from frustration and anxiety.
Everyone needs to slow down sometimes, breathe deeply, and feel joy.
Making your own serene space where you can indulge yourself will help you cope with any pressure that life throws at you.
