Try Biophilic Design
Ever heard of biophilic design? It’s a fancy name for using natural elements in your living space. Think indoor plants, basking in natural light, or even a charming little water feature.
Not just pretty, this approach has some serious science behind it. Studies have shown that incorporating nature at home can reduce stress and improve mental well-being.
Imagine unwinding in a room filled with greenery and soft natural light – it’s like a mini-retreat at home! So, why not start with a few plants or rearrange to let more sunlight in? Read more here and try your hand at some biophilic design. 🌿
Map Out Your Mind

There are a bunch of tech tools that can help you with mind mapping, like MindMeister or XMind. So, next time you’re stuck or need to sort out your ideas, open one up and let your creativity flow.
