Making a Home into a Practical Sanctuary

Feb 01, 2017 06:35PM

Stephanie Lee Jackson, a designer at Practical Sanctuary, practices Spaces that Heal: sustainable interior design that activates the parasympathetic nervous system. “When you feel comfortable, safe and inspired in your space, your body is in the optimal environment to heal. Your nervous system is affected by your environment, whether you are consciously aware of it or not. A chaotic, stress-inducing environment can drain you, making ordinary tasks more difficult and hampering your productivity and well-being over time,” says Jackson. “When your environment supports, nurtures and inspires you in subtle ways, there can be a cascading positive effect of well-being which influences your physical, emotional and financial health.”

Jackson has been practicing as a healer since 1999, an artist since 1989 and an interior designer since 2012. Practical Sanctuary works with homeowners and businesses to create spaces tailored to their specific temperament. Jackson notes, “Often, just a few tweaks can have a dramatic effect.”
