Setting Up a Simple, Serene Home Corner for Holy Week and Always

0Shares

Many weeks in lockdown have shown us that our home is our safe haven. It is the best place to rest the mind, body, and soul. And with the Holy Week fast approaching and gas prices rising, staying at home becomes an even wiser and more practical option. Here are ways that you can set up a serene home corner for some quiet time of reflection during this blessed week.

For current and future Lumina Homes homeowners, having a solemn and revigorating lent season is accessible and attainable. Aside from thoughtfully designed homes and environments, Lumina Homes properties are also strategically located near plenty of places of worship.

How to Create a Serene Home Corner in Your Home 

With this, how do you create a slice of serenity right inside your Lumina home? Here are three things to consider for your relaxing home corner for that quiet time with the Lord:

Find a space where you feel at peace

Prayer corners and rooms are often found in gardens, hallways, or a spot in the main bedroom. But you don’t have to stick to these three. The best thing to do is to go around your house and find a space that speaks to you–one where you feel most grounded and at peace.

It would be nice if the area is well-lighted and ventilated so that you can stay for some time to read or just think without having to turn on the lights and air conditioner to save on electricity.

Refresh the space and set the atmosphere

Once you find the spot that is perfect for you, refresh the space with some simple improvements. Perhaps you can clean and dust off corners or change its color to make it feel more light and welcoming. If it’s in your Lumina Homes’ lush garden, you can sweep dried leaves. Also, keep brooms and gardening tools hidden, as these could distract you to do some chores. 

Furnish the space with items that help you reconnect with the Creator

Now that the place is a blank canvas, you can furnish the space with items that allow you to pray and reconnect peacefully.

First of all, know that you should not feel pressured to adorn it. Spend some time praying in it with only the basic essentials, i.e. your bible, a rosary, a crucifix, or a prayer book and journal. As you frequent the space, you will know what additional items you can put in. Some people place speakers to play ambient music, like their favorite praise and worship songs.

Others like putting dim lights or candles, prayer mats, and a photo frame of people and family members they pray for frequently.

Your Own Cozy Nook

This home corner can be your personal space throughout the year. You could also assign it as a prayer corner for members of the family to pray when they need to any time of the day. It can be anyone’s safe space when they need to just be alone.
