Improved health and wellbeing are at the top of most people’s New Years resolution list every year. In difficult times, it has never been more important to dedicate time, space and effort to your health and wellbeing. Having a garden room provides you with the ideal space for this, which can be used in many different ways. Here are 5 of the best ways your garden room can help improve your health and wellbeing in 2022.
A home gym
One of the most popular uses for a garden room is a home gym. If you have health and fitness goals for 2022, creating a home gym is the perfect way to support these. Having a private gym literally on your doorstep removes some of the barriers to working out, such as feeling uncomfortable in front of others and having to travel to use the equipment. With a home gym, you can set it up exactly how you want it, investing in only the equipment you will actually use. If you’re looking to turn your new healthy habits into a lifestyle, creating a home gym will also help you save money on gym memberships over the long term.
A home spa retreat
Turning your garden room into a beautiful haven of peace and tranquillity can help you escape the stresses of modern life. What better way to support your wellbeing than by creating a space dedicated to peace and relaxation? You can set the space up exactly as you want it with the perfect lighting, music, furniture and décor. If you have the space, you can even add a hot tub for ultimate luxury and relaxation.
Connecting with nature
Few of us make time to get out in nature these days, even though the benefits of doing so are well documented. Installing a garden room can help you reap all of these benefits without even leaving your property. A garden room with good views of the outdoors from a patio or bi-fold glass panelled doors, for example, can help you enjoy the great outdoors even in the cold winter months. This can help you reduce stress, feel grounded and improve your mental wellbeing in these difficult times.
Improving your work-life balance
With many of us working from home at least some of the time these days, garden offices are becoming an increasingly popular addition. Setting up an office in a garden room allows you to reap all the benefits of working from home while being able to separate work from home life. While many home workers struggle to shut off after 5 pm, leaving your work in the garden office helps to create the divide between work and home. This helps to restore the work-life balance for reduced stress and improved wellbeing.
Pursuing your passions
A garden room provides you with an additional space in your home, which you can use for virtually any purpose. If you haven’t found a dedicated purpose for your garden room yet, perhaps consider using it as a hobby room in which you can pursue your passions. Whatever your personal interests are, having a dedicated space will motivate you to spend more time doing the things you love. When we spend more time doing the things we love, our happiness and overall wellbeing increases. Some examples of a hobby room include a music studio, arts and crafts studio, gaming room, home cinema, memorabilia room and yoga studio, but the possibilities are almost endless!
If you have a garden room, why not give some of these ideas a try? If not, perhaps 2022 is the year for investing in a garden building. We wish you a happy and healthy new year!
