Set up a Calming Environment During the Holidays

Thanksgiving will be here before you know it and the house will certainly be bustling with guests. Due to all of the activity all of the energy is sure to tire you out! Instead of feeling completely overwhelmed and stressed out during Thanksgiving it’s time to take a deep breath and look forward to the holidays. If you have the right elements in your home that will help you relax, everything will run smoothly and you’ll feel peaceful and ready to tackle whatever comes your way.

Aquariums for a Calming Distraction – If you don’t already have an aquarium in your kitchen area or dining room this is a great element to add to a calming distraction that your entire family will enjoy. Incorporate a Fluval Chi aquarium that’s peaceful with its soothing elements and enticing appearance. When you’re busy cooking away prior to Thanksgiving or even on Thanksgiving day glancing or taking a break and looking at the fish in the aquarium will allow you to have a peaceful moment to yourself.

A Library as a Peaceful Retreat – If you don’t have enough space in your home for a library that’s quite all right, but what about adding your own library in a bedroom or converting a walk-in closet into a library space? Invest in a sturdy bookcase that will hold all of your favorite treasures and when things get crazy inside your house take a break and retreat at your new library space. You can take some time out to read a chapter for one of your favorite books or sit and relax for a while until you’re ready to carry up and prepare for company.

Light a Fireplace in a Comfy Living Room – Since Thanksgiving is well on its way why not light up a fire in your living room? Not only will it be a warm place where your guests can catch up with one another, but it will be a nice place for you to sit and relax near by as well. Sit down on a comfy sofa and enjoy the blazing warm fire – it will soothe you and warm you up when you’ve been cooking up a storm for Thanksgiving dinner!

library will be for sure a peaceful place since noise isnt allowed in this place hehhehe. Well, here in America is totally different because fireworks are illegal and there a certain place where people meet up to watch firework displays. So it won't be as chaotic as what my hometown in PI do when it comes to fireworks

Very useful tips! Celebrating holidays here isn't as enjoyable as Pinas kasi malamig.

Having an aquarium inside the house truly gives a feeling of relaxation. Seeing the fishes inside it gives a different feeling of calmness.
