Our guide to creating a Tranquil space
Balance is at the heart of Tranquil philosophy, and as we all know balance isn't always easy to achieve, especially in today's hectic climate. With us all spending a lot more time at home (thanks covid), its important now more than ever to find sanctuary at the end of a busy work from home schedule and create space for relaxation.
So here are our top tips to help you have more Tranquil in your life!
Choose a space. Find a zen space, and make an effort to keep it zen! Choose a room or corner of your home that you can purely associate with relaxation. Try to create a mindful disconnect between where you work in the house, and where you go to unwind. Shut off from the outside world, close the emails, apps and other distractions, so you can decompress, refresh your thoughts and improve balance of the mind.
Declutter. A clean space equals a clean mind, right? Well, we know it's not so straight forward as that, but it certainly helps. Replace chaos with minimal objects and ornaments (the plant kind) that will bring you joy.

Decorate. To achieve the ultimate harmonious space, welcome the natural world into your home through organic scents, earthy colours, sounds, lighting and sensory objects.
Green is often described as a refreshing and tranquil colour due to its associations with nature, bringing to mind the lush green of grass, trees, and forests. So our advice? Add more green! Incorporating indoor plants, is a cost effective and low maintenance way to bring the serenity of nature's elements into your abode.
Focus. We know our Kokedama moss balls look pretty neat, and thanks to their good looks, they can provide an interesting sensory focal point for a moment of peace and meditation. Even focusing our attention to acts of care for our plants can become a calming ritualistic activity for many which allows us to access a meditative state – an idea that dates back to Ancient Buddhist Monks who believed that cultivating Bonsai’s “and planting them in containers was an art form which was meditative, reflective and a harmonious way to be at one with nature” and we completely agree! Looking after our plants can be a great addition to any self-care routine.

Breathe! Deepen your breath and reap the benefits of purer air in your environment, with the help of a fresh-air Kokedama friend. These beauties will remove harmful substances in the air, absorb carbon dioxide and emit oxygen, which is proven to reduce stress (yay) and improve overall mental well-being.
So there you have it! Follow our wise words and you are on your way to becoming a much more Tranquil being!
