”There’s a world where I can go and tell my secrets to…In my room” is the first line to a song called ”In My Room” by The Beach boys, produced in 1963.
I was in bed the other day and was going through my Spotify likes from years ago and this song appeared. I remembered how much I loved this song and how much it resonates with my life. I spend a lot of time in my room: I could be doing assignments, take phone calls, been emotional, screamed out of excitement in my room, listen to music, watch TV…in other words my room means everything to me.
Your room is where you can wholeheartedly be yourself without judgement (unless you share it with someone else) everyone deserves a room they can call their own. Your room should be treated as a shrine, it should be the place you always look forward to going to when you can get home. Your room should bring you peace. Though this may not always be the case, the way one’s room looks can be a representation of how they may be feeling on the inside.
”In this world I lock out all my worries and my fears..in my room” is the second verse to the song. It’s fa”In this world, I lock out all my worries and my fears..in my room” is the second verse to the song. It’s far much easier and feels safer to be vulnerable in your room. How many times have you danced in your room because you were happy about something? Had sex/made love? How many times have you cried in your room because you were glad about something or because you were heartbroken? Take a look at your room right now, how does it look and how does it make you feel? Your room has been through a lot, always treat it well.
Here are a few things that may help:
- Clean and tidy your room – You don’t have to do this all in day because it can sometimes be overwhelming, stretch out the days and do it in sections, it also depends on the size of your room. Play some music or podcasts, it makes the experience way better.
- Rearrange your room. Repositioning your room gives you more space and a whole completely different view, it’s definitely worth doing every once in a while even yearly.
- Declutter your wardrobe. When was the last time you actually wore those trousers? and that top? Yeah I thought so. Take them out. If you have clothes you haven’t worn in years, give them to charity and if you can afford to do so, revamp your whole wardrobe and get new clothes.
- Make your bed. One of the best feelings is coming home to an already made after a long day. Keep the habit of making your bed before you leave the house, even if your entire your room is not all the way tidy, your bed should always be made, your body will thank you for this.
Your room is practically your sanctuary, treat it well. A lot has happened there, get candles of your favourite scent, get various smaller lights or lamps, create a space you can meditate and pray. Do whatever you need to do to bring peace and calmness in your room for better wellbeing.
