How to Create a Self-Care Haven

  • 1 min read

Creating a calming environment is not only beneficial for your mental health, but it can be lots of fun! It can seem like a big task but trust us—your peace of mind is worth it. Whether you’re moving into a new space, remodeling, or simply revamping your self-care routine, here are a few tips and tricks for creating your dream sanctuary.

Appoint a Space to be Your Self-Care Haven

This may be your bedroom, a spare room, or even a designated corner of your living room. Choose a spot with low foot traffic and noise levels to reduce the likelihood of unwelcome distractions. After all, this will be the space you go to when you need to relax.

Choose Cozy Furniture First

We recommend picking out your furniture before selecting a paint color. Here’s why:

Buying paint is easy. All you have to do is walk into a home-improvement store and pick out the exact color you need from a wide variety of options. You can’t really do that for furniture unless you’re willing to pay extra money for customized upholstery. You’ll save time and effort (and money, too) by picking out your paint after selecting your furniture.

When deciding what type of furniture you’d like, ask yourself a few questions. Do you feel more relaxed sitting or lying down? Should you invest the bulk of your budget in a cozy chair or a couch? What kinds of activities help you unwind? Do you need shelves for books or an organizer for craft supplies?

Questions like these will help you determine exactly what your self-care haven needs.

Select Your Color Scheme

The colors of our environment affect our mood greatly. When picking out paint for your self-care haven, find a shade that complements your furniture and makes you feel ready to relax. To get you started, here are some meanings commonly associated with different colors:

Green: growth and new beginnings
Blue: serenity, calm, and responsibility
Purple: royalty, creativity, and mystery
Yellow: happiness and hope
Orange: happiness and energy
Red: passion and love
Brown: dependability, security, and safety
White: cleanliness and safety

Pick the color you like in a shade/tone that complements your furniture and vision for the room.

Clear the Atmosphere

Your self-care sanctuary should also be a haven of fresh air. Airborne pollutants can reduce the quality of your indoor air and could contribute to varying degrees of discomfort, hindering you from well-deserved serenity.

An air purifier uses special filters to trap common airborne contaminants such as dust, pollen, pet dander, smoke, fumes, and VOCs (volatile organic compounds). The Levoit Vital 200S Smart Air Purifier is especially effective and comes with smart control, so you don’t even need to leave your cozy spot to change a setting.


Adding natural fragrance to your self-care haven will make it even more appealing after a long day at work. The Levoit LV600S Smart Hybrid Ultrasonic Humidifier has a built-in aroma box, making your at-home paradise come alive with a few drops of essential oil.

Fill Your Space With Happy Things

Maybe you have a photograph that captured a particularly special moment or a souvenir of your favorite vacation spot. A vase of beautiful flowers next to your seat will never go amiss. Whatever makes you smile is exactly what your self-care haven needs.

Schedule Time for Self-Care

Once you’ve set up your place of tranquility, don’t forget to visit it! Scheduling time for relaxation is just as important as scheduling activities. Try to spend time in your self-care haven every day. Even a few minutes can make a world of difference.


Creating your own sanctuary is a fun and rewarding task. So take your time, have fun, and don’t forget to spend time in your self-care haven once it’s finished.
