Create a home that supports well-being and healthy habits

Work towards fulfilling your new year resolutions. Take a look at how you can make starting a new activity simple. All you need is a little bit of room and even less equipment.

Clear up some space to keep it moving

Make a plan for clearing up space in your home. Using this open area, you can do your stretches at home. No more making excuses for a lack of time! If you are using lightweight furniture or those that can be rolled away, clearing the space becomes super-easy.

Easy to set the mood

With a box to collect all the things you need, setting up your space becomes lightning fast. Keep all your essentials close and accessible. Maybe throw in a few scented candles for the mood as well.

Begin your healthy habit

When the floor space is finally clear, there’s no more making excuses. Just lay down, stretch and begin the first day of your healthy habit.

With furniture that’s lightweight or can be rolled out of the way, clearing enough space is done quick and easy.

Mind over matter

Having a healthy habit for your body is not the only goal, but create a peaceful environment for your mind as well. Relax after your exercise routine by dimming the lights, playing some soft music and lighting a scented candle.

There’s no need for fancy equipment

Using the things lying around at home saves you money. So say goodbye to those gym cards and heavy equipment and put what you already own to work. How about using a towel as a resistance band? Or a pouffe as an exercise ball?

We love to see our customers get creative with our products. Go for it! But please note that altering or modifying IKEA products so they can no longer be re-sold or used for their original purpose, means the IKEA commercial guarantees and your right to return the products will be lost.
