Chapter 8: Back to school… calmly

The start of the new school year can usually be summarised in one word: “stressful”. Poor old September just flies by and is doomed to be an anxiety-inducing month. We rush around madly, registering for this and that, filling in forms, making appointments at the doctor, going to meetings at the school, etc…

So many things to be organised to ensure that the next few months run smoothly… I don’t know if that’s what it’s like for everyone, but it certainly is for me.

But this year, I’m going to try to do things differently.
I’ve got two simple ideas to relieve the September stress: don’t leave everything until the last minute and make your home a peaceful, relaxing place where you can live the slow life, even during these stressful periods.

I’m sure that a chilled-out, comfortable ambiance also helps us to deal with other situations more calmly. That’s what we were aiming for when we chose these neutral soothing shades to decorate the living room.
Soft seating, lots of light and warm colours… The ideal place for relaxing breaks, with a nice cup of tea or a hot chocolate.

Have a soothing September everyone!
