My Restorative Introvert Cave

I’ve always been drawn to small, enclosed spaces. As a child, I would play (and sleep) in appliance boxes that I decorated and filled with blankets and pillows.

I’ve felt very over-taxed and over-stimulated this school year and could tell that I needed to get serious about my self-care. I have a dormer in my home office that has been my meditation nook for a few years, but with its view of my workspace, I tended to be distracted by what I needed to get done.

So, last weekend, I added some curtains (to block the view of the computer) and stocked up on T.J.Maxx pillows to make the floor inviting. The combination of soft light, fluffy pillows and incense is like a dose of instant calm.

Now, if I could just figure out a way to have one of these in my classroom 🙂

  1. I’m not an introvert, but do benefit from similar experiences. I have a window alcove thing that could benefit from a similar curtain treatment to minimize the distractions too.

    Thanks for sharing that!
