Chilling at Home with Raisu
Our house is our refuge, where we go to feel safe and secure. Almost like an impenetrable space, a comfortable place where we can work or study for our exams, unwind after a long day or simply spend our weekends chilling on the sofa.
As a place where we spend most of our time, and where we are most ourselves, we must take care of every detail so that everything is perfect, both inside and outside.
We spoke to Raisu about her home, how it makes her feel, and what helps her unwind at the end of a long day.
How does your home make you feel?
It makes me feel comfortable, relaxed and fortunate to have a beautiful space where I get to live and create memories.
What is your favourite way to start the day?
Sipping my morning coffee while enjoying the fresh morning breeze in the garden.
In which room are we most likely to find you relaxing after a long day?
Definitely in the living room on my comfy sofa with feet up and a cosy blanket with a cup of tea.
What’s your trick for falling asleep?
I don’t have any tricks but sometimes listening to podcasts or just keeping my mind empty helps me fall asleep quicker.
What does your perfect weekend look like?
My perfect weekend would be going out for lunch with friends or family and taking a walk around the park with coffee on Saturday and lazy day on Sunday with McDonald’s breakfast and catching up on my Netflix series.
How would you spend a weekend at home?
Deep cleaning the house with music in the background which makes me feel so good after the house is sparkling. Cook a lovely traditional dinner and enjoy it with a glass of wine while watching Friends.
As Raisu mentions, our home is where we create many memories with friends, family and our own selves. It’s therefore important we create a delightful space where we feel homely and relaxed.
There are a few simple steps that we can do to make our homes more harmonious and peaceful. One of the most important steps is to remove clutter. It’s very hard to feel cosy and at peace when surrounded by mess and clutter. Take Raisu as an example, and make the most of your weekends at home to have a deep clean and declutter your space.
Once a room is tidy, and not cluttered with things that don’t belong, you will have created a cushy and comfortable space to cuddle up for movie night while enjoying a glass of wine.
