How A Garden Room Can Boost Your Family’s Wellbeing
13th June 2020
We all know that the outdoors can truly benefit our health and wellbeing. The great outdoors can bring exercise, fresh air, provide you with much needed vitamin D, lower your blood pressure, calm you and boost your energy levels. When we are at home, many of us fall into routines which include sitting in front of a TV, playing video games, scrolling on our phones and laying down but what if you could enjoy your outdoor space so much more? And as a family?! A garden room can provide you with so much more than you may realise.
Enjoy Your Outdoor Space At Home
The first thing you may need to address is changing home habits. How many of us automatically turn on the TV without thinking about doing anything else? How many of us just slump down rather than being pro-active?
To make a positive change to your family’s wellbeing, you need to take some small steps in the way you all behave at home. Having a garden is such a luxury but many people do not utilise this on a daily basis. Start to look at your garden as a place that will bring you together, as one that will benefit your health and wellbeing and somewhere for all of you to enjoy no matter how that is carried out.
The addition of a garden room can help to bring that space to life. It can add a new room onto your home, it can be a place to hang out as a family away from electronics and it is a space from where you can look out over your garden and enjoy it from a different angle.
And in order to enjoy that garden even more, why not get gardening as a family too? This is all of your space, it is somewhere that everybody should be able to retreat to and find joy in so making sure that it incorporates a little bit of everybody’s tastes is really important.
Your garden room can have so many uses and it could easily be a gardening room. This would give you a place to pot up plants when the weather isn’t so good, it would make a great environment for growing your seedlings in as well as a safe place to keep all of your gardening equipment and any books you’d need to refer to.
Other Garden Room Uses
We have covered this a lot in many of our other blogs but it is really important to us here at Modern Garden Rooms to emphasise on the fact that a garden room can be whatever you want to make it. It can provide a hobby room, a workplace, a place in which to read or one to exercise in. It can be used as a teenager’s den, as a playroom, for evening dining or even as a pool house. And the great thing is that as your family’s needs change, so can your garden room.
How It Can Boost Your Wellbeing
Your garden room can take you away from your house but not from your home. In other words, you can still feel relaxed and chilled but you don’t have to think about the chores or the distractions that the house can often bring.
It can create a little sanctuary that you can escape to just by walking across your garden. It can provide peace and quiet to those who need it. It can be a calming environment to get homework done in. It can be a lovely place to play family board games or to eat together in. It can be a room where you exercise together, read together or just somewhere to talk openly and honestly to one another.
Once you remove the stresses that we often feel inside the house, you will find that everybody’s wellbeing will begin to improve.
