Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed and wish you could find a little hidey-hole to escape to for a while? Maybe you live in a chaotic household or have a demanding job and need to completely switch off after a pressured day. Or perhaps you need a little time away from distractions so you can unleash creativity or practice mindfulness.
What would you say to having your own relaxing haven only a stone’s throw away from your doorstep – a private space where you can just ‘be’? As we explain in this article, backyard pods are the perfect solution for creating your own oasis, and there are many ways to use them. But first, let’s consider why it’s important to have a dedicated area for R&R.
The Importance of a Private, Secluded Space
For most of us, life is incredibly fast-paced with lots going on. And constantly rushing to do one task after another can take its toll. So we all need a little privacy and rest from time to time to disconnect from the stresses of daily life and boost our mental well-being and physical health. (Reducing stress lowers blood pressure and bodily tension, and even decreases inflammation – a contributor to many chronic health conditions).
Even a short amount of time spent relaxing can help us reset our overwhelmed minds and make us feel more energised and productive. A quiet space dedicated solely to relaxation offers the chance to shut off from external noise, kick back, unwind and have a few precious moments of stillness.
Our hectic lives often leave us little time to think creatively, which can hinder our ability to come up with innovative ideas. By taking some alone time, we can dig deeper into our minds and explore new possibilities. This can lead to breakthroughs and fresh perspectives that we might not have considered before. That’s why solitude is the number one habit of highly creative people. So a peaceful, tucked-away spot can also serve to boost creativity and productivity – helping you express yourself, solve problems, feel motivated and achieve more.
How a Backyard Pod Helps You Get Into a Different Headspace
Imagine you’ve come home after a long and challenging day at work. As soon as you walk through the door, you realize there’s a never-ending list of chores waiting for you before you can finally call it a day. What you really want to do is disappear for an hour on your own and put your feet up. With a backyard dome, you can take refuge in your private sanctuary in just a few minutes.
You don’t need to travel far, take anything with you or prepare a special environment because you’ll already have your space set up how you want it. It’s simply a case of walking outside to your dome, going in, zipping up the door and cherishing time on your lonesome.
Backyard pods provide a peaceful and quiet space where you can focus and relax without any distractions. They let you escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, creating a calming environment where you can unwind and forget about all the external pressures.
Using a Backyard Dome as Your Personal Retreat
Hypedomes are perfect for creating a yoga dome or relaxing meditation area. A yoga mat will fit inside easily and you can make the space feel serene with candles, plants, cushions and ambient lighting. Hypedomes are stunning to look at, and our clear dome design allows you to fully immerse in the ‘zen’ zone while enjoying the views of your garden.
Hypedomes also make brilliant creative studios where you can work on your latest project in peace and quiet. Use one for painting, sewing, journaling, graphic design, sculpting, knitting, making model trains – you name it. Why not add a desk and bring your crafty tools and equipment inside? Hypedomes are easy to decorate with brightly coloured throws and pretty bunting to get those creative juices flowing.
You could also use a backyard dome as a reading nook, for listening to music or watching the night sky. Whether you want to create a She Shed or a Man Cave, Hypedomes give you a truly flexible space to practice mindfulness, relax, create, and just be present in the moment.
Make a Backyard Pod Your Happy Place
A little ‘me’ time can make you happier, calmer, more creative, and more productive. Backyard pods are ideal for creating a secluded escape when you need to rest, be still or get the cogs of your imagination turning.
Whether you need a moment of peace or a burst of inspiration, a pod can be your go-to escape. Just imagine your perfect retreat, deck it out to your liking, and voila – your happy place awaits. And your brain will thank you for the upgrade.
