Designing For Wellness
Posted on November 14, 2018
Have you ever walked into a space and immediately felt uncomfortable without knowing why? Although a built environment may feature all the latest trends, that doesn’t necessarily mean it was created with our well-being in mind. Designing in a way the supports the psyche requires a sixth sense about what agitates our nerves. It also requires a knowledge of what simple interior elements can be the antidote.
Thankfully, that’s one superpower of having an ADHD brain. I live in a rapid-fire state of processing every waking minute, but I use this awareness to employ various tactics to help me slow down my racing thoughts. Over the past several years I began to write down the methods that worked for me, especially those related to the space I live in. These calm-inducing design practices became the basis for my new book Designing For Wellness and anyone can try them.
