How to Bring Zen Into Your Home
Posted on August 01 2017
ZEN - that state of mind where we feel worry-free, peaceful and relaxed.
It’s been proven that dogs increase the levels of positivity in homes as well as help us to be more connected emotionally, more social and show more empathy.
Animals boost our spirits and just makes us feel better. When they excitedly greet us at the door, we’re given a euphoric feeling of happiness that overcomes us and instantly changes our mood. Whether our body is in motion or sitting still in thought our dog can relax us. Experts say there is a scientific reason for that.
According to a recent article on healthguide.org, “Dogs in particular can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, ease loneliness, encourage exercise and playfulness, and even improve your cardiovascular health. Caring for a dog can help children grow up more secure and active or provide valuable companionship for older adults. Perhaps most importantly, though, a dog can add real joy and unconditional love to your life.”
When the Fusion Gates team came across the Dog is Good’s new Dog is my Zen design at a recent trade show, we knew it belonged in our collection of screens. Its design and message follows perfectly with our goal of creating inspired and harmonious spaces. Plus, it made us smile. The Dog is my Zen art screen was created using warm red and gold hues with artwork symbolizing life-force, preservation and all things sacred.
