Best way to describe it is taking a really deep inhale, and a biiiig exhale. Aahhhh. It’s amazing how our surroundings can affect our moods, which is precisely why it’s so important to create an environment at home — even if it’s just one corner of a room — that inspires stillness and tranquility in the busiest of times.
