Many of us live, work, or play in bustling cities. We are met with constant noise, movement, smells, and interactions. We are constantly going from one thing to the next without any thought. Our society places being busy on a pedestal, praising those with a strong work ethic and never taking downtime to relax. Individuals who live in city type areas are also at a higher risk for anxiety or mood disorders compared to people living in rural areas. Along with a more digital world, we are all far more sedentary than ever before. Living in environments such as these, it’s no wonder so many of us struggle with anxiety and depression. Our environments can play a large role in our mental health. 

What Is a Restorative Space?

A restorative space is one that lets us escape the bustling city life and helps us find our inner calm and peace. Everyone will respond differently to restorative places. It is important to look deep and determine what type of space helps you feel the best. Some people find cabins in the woods, cottages on the water, or remote parts of nature to be wonderfully restorative spaces. Others benefit from visiting museums or art galleries. Some studies have shown that cities that incorporate water into their landscapes have been found to be more restorative. Learn what works best for you and your enjoyment. 

Explore the Benefits 

Using restorative spaces can greatly help you with your overall mental health. The more interactive you are within that space, the better the outcome. If you take the time to learn what works best for you, then you will already know where you can go or what you can do during those times when you are especially anxious or stressed. Do not wait until a high-stress time to think about what to do to find relaxation and restoration. Do the work now so you can benefit and relax when you really need it. 

Our environment can have a profound impact on our mental health. Living in busy, bustling environments can make it challenging to find our inner calm and decompress when we are stressed. This can lead to a wide array of mental health struggles. Exploring restorative places can help us work through our anxiety or stress and can be a great option along with therapy. There are many different restorative places and learning what works best for you is key. Here at The Guest House, we are ready to help you learn to understand yourself and your needs better.
