      Positive Thinking

      Positive Thinking

      Being happy and feeling good sometimes feels like a monumental task, but even though it seems like an enormous work, the reality is that having a positive outlook towards life requires some practice. Scientists, like Laurie Santos at Yale University, have dedicated their life's work to understanding the science of happiness, and identifying which tools should we use to live a happier and more positive life. 

       

      One mechanism we can use to improve our overall happiness is to create positive memories. Memories are being built in our brains constantly as we experience life, but if we can focus on the present and concentrate on making more of these experiences a positive recollection of the past, our outlook of life will start shifting towards the good. 

       

      Some tools that can help you achieve this are:

       

      • Practice gratitude at all times. If you are doing something that annoys you, like being stuck in traffic, try to think of things you are grateful for in your life, instead of getting stuck in the irritating feelings. 
      • Try to savor specific moments that might feel irrelevant. For instance, if you are walking home, notice the nature that surrounds you, pay attention to the sound of birds, enjoy those little moments. 
      • When spending time with friends and family, things might get irritating at times, especially if you are on a big trip or sharing too much time at the same house, but it is important to always try to end these moments on a high note. In reality, people won't remember the bad memories, they will only keepsake the most positive ones. That's why it is important to create them. 

       

      The most important tip of all is to remember that having difficult days is normal, but having tools to overcome the hardships can make life happier.

      New Season New Vibe

      New Season New Vibe

      Spring is here! Finally, the weather is changing, and life outside is an option again. After a winter that felt longer than usual, and a year that's been unlike others, going outside (with all the safety measures) is crucial for our mental health. 

      With that said, life isn't back to normal yet and most of us still have to spend a lot of time indoors working or studying. This is why at Roomdekko we launched two new collections that bring the feeling of spring inside our homes. 

      The Print Life Style Design Connections Collection was thought out for people who like to decorate their space with bold designs and beautiful colors. The abstract designs on all of the prints are the perfect complement to any space that needs a sense of renovation, without having to go through the hassle of tearing down a wall. 

      The Rainbow Garden Design Collection is a playful and vivid set of designs, thought out for children and adults alike. The patterns range from floral to pastel, which makes it a perfect collection for both a spring vibe and to help you get into the summer mood early. 

      We know a lot of people won't be able to return to normal life soon and working from home will keep being the norm for a while. This is why we wanted to bring you two new collections, to help you brighten up your space, change the vibe and fill your life with happiness and positivity! 

       

      Happy Valentine's Day

      Happy Valentine's Day

      This Year Valentine's Day is Different

      If there is one lesson we learned last year and that we want to take into 2021 is definitely the importance of being surrounded by loving people. Being quarantined and distant from friends and family helped us realize how important they are in our lives, and how cultivating those relationships is one of the keys to a happy life. 

      Usually, Valentine's Day is about showing our partners how much we love them, but if you find yourself single, February 14th can be a tricky day. But this year is different, thanks to what we learned in 2020, we want to invite you to take advantage of this special date and show all of your loved ones how much you appreciate them. Not only your partner but also friends and family. 

       

      Here we share some ideas for you to show your affection this Valentine's Day: 

       

      • Take a short break and video call the people you haven't been able to see this year. 
      • Write an email (or letter) sharing the way certain people have impacted your life and send it to them. 
      • Send a gift their way, just a small detail to show you keep them in your thoughts. 
      • Analyze who are the people who bring you joy into your life, and who doesn't. Keep close to those who fill your life with positive energy. 
      • Practice self-love. Take a moment every day to show yourself some love, you can't be the best for the people who surround you if you are not feeling the best. 

      Our New Year’s List of Wishes

      Our New Year’s List of Wishes

      This year hasn’t been easy for anyone. This time last year, we were planning and imagining all the amazing things we were going to accomplish and the places we were going to visit in 2020. Today we are all a little more cautious with our planning.

      Given the current circumstances, the usual New Year’s tradition of getting our goals in order and thinking about everything we want to happen in 2021 might differ. That is why in Roomdekko we have found a better way to approach the planning for next year. Our technique is incredibly cool because it doesn’t involve planning at all! We learned this year that living life to the fullest is not about our accomplishments but the way we approach the difficult situations we are faced with, and we believe that the best way to face the challenges is with a mindful view of life. 

      Here are some tips we have used throughout the year that worked for us: 

      • Meditation - 15 minutes of daily meditation are an excellent way to reduce stress, lower your blood pressure, control anxiety, enhance your attention span, and much more. 
      • Be aware of your breath – If you stop whatever you are doing and become aware of your breath, this will help calm down, focus, and reduce anxiety, amongst other beneficial outcomes. Just focus for 5 minutes a day in your breath to start your way into mindfulness. 
      • Gratitude – It mind sound cliché, but being thankful is a proven way to improve your overall happiness. Have a gratitude journal right next to your bed and write three things you are grateful for every night. It will change your view on life immediately! 
      • Work out – We know this one might sound boring or challenging for many. But working out doesn’t have to be hard. You can play a good album and dance to it for a whole hour, or take a long walk outside on a sunny day. The important thing is you move your body a little every day. 
      • Be present – Being present is one essential mindfulness tips you can learn. And it is not hard; all you have to do is start small. Begin by having lunch and not looking at your phone, just eating your food, paying attention to the flavors and the textures, or taking a moment to stare out the window and look at the people passing by, without thinking about any other thing, just enjoy the moment. 

      These are a few very important tips we have practiced during this tumultuous 2020 that have helped us achieve our goals, remain positive, and preserve our mental health. We hope they can do the same for you!
