How to use your serenity room? Take an hour per week, or day, or whatever time you decide, and go there. Light the candles. Draw the shades. Put on acappella chant, Tim Janis, Enya, or Secret Garden on the stereo. Stretch out together on the pillows, and just listen to each other breathe. Relax. Enjoy. If this isn't part of everyone's mental health regimen yet it soon will be, as people discover the value of this priceless 'sensory deprivation'. The biggest obstacle you'll find in the beginning is allowing yourself the luxury of ignoring all the 'have to's', 'should be's' and general restlessness that causes you to need the room in the first place. But it's noise that's the primary concern.
Here's another reason to make a serenity room. Noise induced hearing loss. This is a permanent hearing impairment resulting from prolonged exposure to high levels of noise. Almost 15% Americans have a hearing loss that affects their ability to understand normal speech*. And excessive noise exposure is the most common cause of hearing loss. Twenty-five percent of the work force in the United States is regularly exposed to potentially damaging noise.
Keep your bathrooms bright and chirpy in the sense that your wall tiles and flooring should not be dark and somber. White is always elegant and can be enhanced with splashes of color in toweling, mirrors, rugs and shower accessories. Bathrooms should be a sanctuary for relaxation, and therefore should not be over cluttered with superfluous objects. Scented candles with soft music in the background is sure to take away the stresses of the day, as you soak your wary body in a luxurious foam bath.
