As different levels of quarantine continue, more and more people are beginning to feel trapped, having grown tired and bored with the space they call home (24/7!). During this illustrated Zoom presentation and discussion, Linda Varone of Nurturing Spaces gives you practical ideas on how to arrange your indoor and outdoor space to support meaningful connection and renewal during this stay-at-home time. Linda draws from the Scandinavian tradition of Hygge (pronounced “hoo-gah”), modern neuroscience and interior psychology. For the inside the house, Linda shares how you can improve your work-from-home set-up, design a functional and fun creativity space that is a welcoming non-electronic area for stimulation and enjoyment. In addition, she shows you how to rethink dinner time. For outside your home, Linda shares ways you can take advantage of your outdoor space for safe-distance socializing with friends and neighbors and also how to plan a garden for pleasure and purpose.
