Home—the place we’d usually retreat to after working or come back to after traveling or doing some other kind of activity.  But now it’s where we do everything: business, work, play, exercise, socialize by communicating on line etc.

So more than ever we need ways to relax at home and take that ever needed “me time”. We have complied a list of ideas for you to find things or ways to achieve that state of relaxation and maintain positive mental health.
