Ways to make your space feel bigger when you meditate

In a world that moves at a breakneck pace, finding time to slow down and quiet your mind is difficult—and it’s also essential. Many people turn to meditation to help. The practice guides the mind to a calmer place using breathing techniques, mantras, and imagery. It can be as simple as breathing deeply and repeating a phrase or as complicated as traveling to a different plane tucked away in the recesses of your imagination. Either way, you need a quiet, calm space to do it in order to really reap the benefits of meditation. Here’s how to make your apartment feel bigger when you meditate.

  1. Oust any clutter.
    One of the most obvious ways to make your space feel larger is to rid it of any stuff that’s non-essential. Purging extra clutter is a good habit to get into, whether you meditate or not. Donate any knick-knacks, furnishings, and decor that you don’t really need in order to open up some space for your meditative practice. This will make it even easier to get into the zen zone.
  2. Welcome natural light.
    When sunshine comes streaming into your home, it makes your world a bit brighter and bigger. Harness the power of natural light and pick a corner for meditation with ample windows. The sunny rays, and the view visible through the windows, will make your meditation nook feel instantly more spacious.
  3. Enlist neutral hues.
    While dark colors tend to make a room feel smaller, light and neutral tones do just the opposite. Whites, creams, and shades of beige create the illusion of extra space. So when you pick furnishings for your meditation area (or for any room in your home, really), opt for these lighter colors instead of dark, bold hues. If you already have darker furniture in the area where you intend to meditate, there’s no need for a full makeover. Just add some lighter elements, like a whitewashed throw blanket or set of pillows.
  4. Just add mirrors.
    Mirrors instantly add square footage to your home, almost in the same way that a window does. The reflection seemingly doubles the size of any space. Affix a mirror to your wall or find a small stand-alone mirror that you can incorporate into your meditation nook.
  5. Strategically place your pillow.
    One essential that every meditation space must have is a cushy pillow for you to perch on. Pick your pillow and then arrange it strategically to make your space feel larger. Instead of pushing it up against the wall, pull it out at least six inches. This is an old trick for arranging furniture. When you let your furnishings float, the room feels bigger. When they connect with the wall, that seems to suck up space—or, at least, make a room look smaller. You can use this tip with any piece of furniture or decor in your meditation area.

How to Conduct a Remote Apartment Search During the Coronavirus Pandemic

How to Conduct a Remote Apartment Search During the Coronavirus Pandemic

Learn more about how Apartment Guide is responding to coronavirus and taking steps to help renters and property managers during this challenging time.


The COVID-19 pandemic has stolen a lot from people, but it has also challenged us to be more flexible and creative in our daily lives.

This isn’t just limited to homemade hand sanitizer and innovative toilet paper substitutes (you know, just in case). Apartment-hunters have to think outside the box, too.

You might also like

Although the pandemic has certainly changed the apartment-hunting experience, it’s still possible to find the ideal place to start a post-coronavirus life, where hopefully you’ll be able to host parties, give welcoming hugs and just generally get closer than six feet away from your friends.

So, while this contagion-like fiasco lasts, those of you in need of new digs can do a remote apartment search from the comfort of your own couch, with the help of these handy tips.

Virtual tours

Many apartment complexes offer virtual tours of the various floor plans, so start there when a location piques your interest. Make notes on the pros and cons of each one because, after a while, all the videos will start to run together.

virtual tour

Read reviews

Check online reviews for honest (sometimes too much so) opinions of properties. Don’t just look at reviews for the property, but also for the neighborhood using sites like Neighborhood Scout and AreaVibes, as they can give a good overall picture of crime and other data.

Bear in mind that people are more likely to write a review if they’re severely ticked off, so don’t be too alarmed at a high negative rate. To that end…

Request references

Ask the property manager for a handful of phone numbers of current residents you can contact for an honest opinion. Make a list of questions beforehand, and be sure to cover topics like how well the property is maintained, how responsive the management is to concerns/repairs, noise levels of neighbors and local traffic/nightlife, whether the property is pet-friendly and what the parking situation is like. Find out how long the person has rented there and how it compares with previous locations.

Video showings

Once you’ve narrowed it down to a unit or two, ask the property manager for a tour using a live video tool, like Skype or Zoom. Have him start outside the door so you can see the property number (to verify that it’s the correct unit), then walk through each room, showing from all angles. This will help you make any aesthetic requests (carpets need to be cleaned), plus it’ll give you a much better visual than a bunch of possibly outdated or staged photos on the internet.

At this time, you can also have the tour guide turn appliances on and off to make sure they work properly, check the faucet for good water pressure and so on. If there are any kinks, they can hopefully be worked out before you ever take residence.

skype on phone

Make creative requests

Given the uncertain times, it can’t hurt to ask for a few concessions. For example, rather than signing a one-year lease, you can try for a month-to-month or shorter option, just in case the new place isn’t up to your standards.

Also, see if you can put off signing a lease until right before move-in day when you can be there in person. That way you can back out if the apartment doesn’t match the photos or footage. Just be warned: You may forfeit your application fees if you go this route.

This too shall pass

Apartment-hunting and everything else affected by COVID-19 will eventually go back to normal, but in the meantime, it’s in everyone’s interests to be flexible, friendly and patient. After all, we’re all in this together (even if we’re being kept apart).

WE ARE MADE OF TOUGH STUFF!

WE ARE MADE OF TOUGH STUFF!

WE ARE MADE OF TOUGH STUFF!

We are made of tough stuff. Now more than ever before, we need to know that we will make it through this unprecedented COVID-19 global health emergency. As an industry multifamily will remain a strong player in the US economy. But what will be the impact of this national health crisis for apartment housing?

As we look for answers in the short term, one thing is clear, no one really knows what may and can happen.  This is the time to pull together as a country and help our residents the best way we know.  First and foremost, communication will be crucial. Some apartment communities have a broadcast text or email system to keep their residents well informed in real time. Message Assist from @CallAssist247 is a simple easy way to message your residents via phone, text or email. Remote messaging is the best way to continue to maintain physical distancing. We need to be social as isolation can lead to depression and sadness for many.

In the short term, The National Apartment Association has given guidelines for their members and has been key in trying to keep pace with an event that changes hour by hour. As rents are at an all-time high and the typical renter is spending close to half of their income on rent, April 1st there will be delinquency. NAA suggests that there is no easy cookie cutter approach for how to handle default rent, but to take each situation on a case by case scenario. Perhaps partial payments? There will be many residents who have never missed a rent payment and may need to choose between food and rent. Local governments may offer some solutions. You can be helpful and keep abreast of these local resources to help your residents. Are there local food banks or state agencies that can offer some financial assistance?

What can we expect moving forward for our industry? Again no one has a crystal ball. Shelter is a basic need. Possible recession is a distinct possibility. Historically the apartment sector overall is likely to weather a recession well. We may see mobility slow as eviction and foreclosure processes evolve. The shortage of work force housing will be exacerbated by job losses from the service sector. And perhaps as more of us are working from home, the demand for commercial real estate will lessen. (Source: Apartmentlist.com)

We survived the subprime mortgage crisis in 2008, Black Monday in 1987 and recession in 1975. Often our greatest opportunity lies in our biggest challenges. With the strength of our nation, we will make it through this unprecedented global health crisis. As we pulled together as a country during 9/11, we will make it through Covid-19 as we are made of tough stuff!

So… Someone Sneezed Into the Air. Here’s What to Do Next.

So… Someone Sneezed Into the Air. Here’s What to Do Next.

But how far, exactly, can droplets travel when you cough or sneeze? And more importantly, how should that distance affect your home hygiene routine if you or someone in your home might be sick? Here’s everything you need to know about keeping your space sanitary when somebody’s generously sharing their droplets. 

How far do germs travel when you sneeze or cough? 

Dr. Elizabeth Scott, professor of microbiology at Simmons Center for Hygiene and Health in Home and Community at Simmons University in Boston, says as a general rule, droplets can travel between three and six feet from someone’s nose or mouth onto a surface or another person. (That’s why the Centers for Disease Control currently recommends maintaining six feet of personal space to curb the community spread of COVID-19.)

One easy way to help keep germs from traveling (and, ultimately, infecting someone else) is to use a tissue when you sneeze or cough, then disposing of it immediately after and washing your hands. Just make sure to have enough tissues on hand, since germs can stay viable on soft surfaces. The International Forum on Home Hygiene recommends avoiding the use of handkerchiefs when you’re sick, since you’re less likely to spread droplets if you throw away a tissue after using it once. When you use a tissue, always throw it away immediately in a trash bin with a disposable liner or bag instead of leaving it on another surface.

Do you have to disinfect after you cough or sneeze?

You can’t always predict when a cough or sneeze is coming on (and the most sudden sneezes seem to attack suspiciously when you have your hands full). And you definitely can’t control roommates who won’t take their health seriously. If someone in your household is sick or may be sick and you want to avoid accidentally infecting the other people who live there, you need to be extra vigilant about disinfecting surfaces after someone sneezes or coughs into the open air.

If you’re sitting on the couch and then disperse droplets, consider the surfaces within a six-foot radius and disinfect accordingly. Did you sneeze in the general direction of your coffee table and side table, or on your couch pillow and throw? Then disinfect those hard surfaces and toss the soft ones in the laundry. If you’re in the kitchen doing dishes and don’t cover your mouth or nose when you sneeze or cough, that might mean you disinfect your knife block, faucet, and counters before someone else can touch them—and, of course, your hands and the dishes. 

How should I clean things I sneezed or coughed on? 

Keep in mind that cleaning and disinfecting are totally different things. Just because you wiped a surface down and removed all visible signs of your sneeze doesn’t mean you’ve nipped the problem in the bud. To make sure you’re actually killing and removing droplet-spread germs, you have to use disinfecting or sanitizing methods.
