Space for Change
Environmental psychology tells us that the space around us is a fundamental contributor to our well being and is essential in supporting us, so that we may nurture life's many opportunities.
Did you know that our spaces can actually help to stimulate and regulate our nervous systems, impacting the way in which we get through our days? Ever notice the direction your shoulders move when you walk in to a room? Or in what way your breathing or heart rate shifts? Do you work better in a busy environment, or prefer solitude? How does your external space impact your internal being? Conversely, what does your space tell you about you and your life? Does it support your needs? What is it telling you to do and to be? How is this information useful or enlightening?
External physical changes can be of help as we are learning to live a new way in our old lives. Having our new intentions reflected in our spaces, helps to support our intentional new habits. Changing our environment literally changes and expands the neural networks in our brain simply by breaking us out of our routines and forcing us to find a new path. These changes also serve as physical cues in our environment which can prompt us to show up differently in our lives. When your intentions are physically woven into your every day life, you are inspired by and draw strength from your environment, as you follow through and make the conscience choices that support your desired change.
What does this look like?
- Reworking a space, using existing elements in a new way.
- Getting rid of old unnecessary items to create a void or a fresh open space in which to welcome openness and possibilities.
- Add stimulus and fire up your space to invigorate you and give you energy.
- Crafting a space free from excessive stimulus that creates comfort, provides reprieve and grounds you on the outside.
'Space for Change' is an in home/office assessment and consultation service which outlines a step by step plan for you to integrate your internal needs with your external environment.
Friendly Systems for Healthy Habits
As you work to create new healthy habits and make transitions, it is immensely helpful to have the space that surrounds you, support you and reinforce the intentional way you want to be.
Working out logistics, creating function, flow, and systems, helps you to integrate new routines. During my 25 years as a creative entrepreneur, I've developed a knack, love, and appreciation for systems. We will work together to craft these supporting systems in our office sessions or work in your office or home to help design the systems that will work most efficiently for you.
A thoughtfully crafted space with user friendly systems in place on the outside, helps us feel peaceful and put together on the inside.
