    Do you have a favourite place in your home, where you always want to sit and feel peaceful there?

    A place where you feel more relaxed and calm. Your balcony, library, a particular sofa or your grandma' s rocking chair.

    I have a favourite place, we have a spare room, where my computer is, it is light and bright and feels calm, I sit and write or sometimes just relax in the sunshine.

      Sounds interesting!
      Computer sometimes acts as a stress buster. No wonder when the mind is relaxed, you can do wonders with your writing.
      Thanks for your response!

    We call it the rock room.  It's actually a glassed in sunken porch. The windows are all the way around it and you can watch the deer come into the yard - amongst other critters. I'm getting ready to redo it today so I won't be online much.

    Great question you ask.

    Even though, I have a favorite ROOM, I also have a favorite thing to do.  I walk along the woods or in the woods on a good path (with no snakes because that wouldn't peaceful for me) and I sing to God.  A favorite:  How Great Thou Art and I feel so close to Him then.

      Your connection to rock room and Nature sounds interesting!
      I can relate to your second paragraph, since even I have done it so many times. Nothing can be as beautiful as the Nature and we sure do feel close to God amidst Nature.
      Thanks for response!

    Yes!  I have an art studio that I designed and decorated myself.  There's no place I'd rather be than in this room.

    The only downside is that it is in a loft room so it isn't very large.  I've seen others with room enough for sofas and sitting chairs.  That would be a dream.  I've even seen multiple room craft areas where one can sew in a room off of a main room.  That would be a bigger dream. 

    This room is special to me because it took me a long time to earn.  Hard work paid off and I took a lot of care and detail when designing and painting it.  My latest addition was to scrap an L-shape desk I had for the computer area.  I purchased a huge antique dining table with a leaf at a flea market for $40.  Now I have plenty of room to spread out my work and fulfill orders.

      Wow! An art studio, designed by self is so exciting!
      I can visualize your attachment to this wonderful place. A place, which has witnessed your hard work.
      Thanks for your lovely answer!

    My home office. And it is most peaceful when my son is playing at something and I am writing. Then I know all is good. For me it is the space more than the place. But if need be I can shut the door and do deep breathing and listen to music.

      Yes, it is so peaceful and relaxing, with children around. Listening to music in your favourite space---I think even I enjoy it.
      Thanks for your response!

    Sharan.....I do have special places for calmness, both at home, as well as elsewhere.   In my yard, I enjoy sitting along side the deep, rippling creek that borders my property.  It's just down a slight hill and the view is lovely while the sounds are soothing.   The privacy it affords me, is also very nice.   Inside the house, I like to kick back in my combination office/library.  There I can sit and simply enjoy the quiet, while surrounded by books that I can browse and have access to my computer, should I choose to correspond with friends.   Thank you for the interesting question.

      Hi Paula!
      You have almost drew a sketch of your Yard and I can visualize the scenic beauty and hear the soothing sounds.
      Your Office cum Library also sounds interesting enough to be a favourite  My space.
      Thanks for the interesting answer!

    My favorite  place is on my terrace, where I can watch and listen to the birds, sometimes a squirrel will run by or a cat.

      Homes with terrace is so wonderful. Wish I had one. I also love to watch birds and they do visit my balcony. I also feed them every morning.
      Thanks Devika, for your beautiful answer!

    My favourite place would be in the garden, I feel more relax there. Inside the house would be in front of my laptop where I do my writing and chatting to my friends and relations all over the world.

      A Garden is truly a wonderful place to feel relaxed. Writing and chatting is another favourite way to spend happy moments these days.
      Thanks for answering!

    I sure do on my balcony with my plants and flowers. I just love to watch all the nature and sit in the sun out there. It is a wonderful view of a river ,boathouse nestled in Queens Park of Stratford. Do You?

      Hi suzzycue!
      I think i have similar choices. I love to be surrounded by Nature. Besides my balcony with plants, there is a favourite sofa given by my parents, in one corner of my drawing room, where I like to sit with light soothing music.
      Thanks!

      Sometimes old things make you nostalgic and you feel a sense of calmness. Same here--!
