Emotional Escape Rooms: Create A Safe Space At Your Home

The next time you feel overwhelmed with life and want a break, you don’t have to go as far as a jungle retreat in the midst of nature. Or an escapade doesn’t have to be a contemporary resort haven in the hills. Simply step into your own self-care space right at your home—emotional escape room.

An emotional escape room is a self-care space curated for you, at your home.

Emotional escape room is a safe space for your feelings. It is where you go when you want to escape your daily routine and get immersed into your emotions instead.

“If you need a place to go to feel all the feels, there’s a room for that. People will plan their great (indoor) escapes and designate rooms in their homes to decompress, vibe and rage.” - Pinterest Predicts 2022

Emotional escape rooms are upgraded and personalized versions of wellness rooms at work.

The intent of these rooms are the same for everyone. But with a private space/corner at your home, you can tune the way it feels and design it to match your vibe.

A small self-care setup at home can have a huge impact on your emotional well-being.

Tips to create an emotional escape room at your home

Wellness expert Inbaal Honigman says, “When you’re inside the space, even if it’s not a whole room, you set your own rules. Set your ground rules, set your borders, and walk into your own individual space.”

Think about what helps you relax and de-stress. No technology? A good book? Soothing music? Gentle aroma? Set rules and add elements into your space that calm you down.

Pick a space

It can be a spare room at home, your balcony, a corner of your bedroom, or your garden outside if nature is your mellow.

Clear it up to curate from scratch

Don’t keep the things that are already there. Remove them all. And think about what you need in your self-care space.

Choose a calm color palette

Shades of blue and green are most tranquil. Set a soothing color palette in your space.

Include comfortable seating

Whether you feel most comfortable in a couch or a montessori bed, a warm blanket or a yoga mat, make your pick.

Keep it clutter-free

It’s essential to have a clutter-free space to de-clutter your thoughts and empty your mind. If minimalism isn’t your vibe and clutter declutters you, go for it.

Dedicate it to your hobby that brings you joy

Painting, reading, aromatherapy, journaling, meditation or anything that makes you happy when you’re feeling down.

“We all need a safe place to go when life starts to get overwhelming. We need a safe space that won't lead us into darker times, but will actually protect us.” - Gary Winchester


Curating an emotional escape room at home can do wonders for your emotional health. It’s a space with a sense of security. It’s a space to work through your feelings. It’s a space to nurture your relationship with yourself. Just remember to keep all things that remind you of stress and worry away.
