Women, say hello to the 'she shed' -- a personal space for women to hideaway and recharge without having to wander too far from home, or hire a babysitter.
The cleverly named she shed is created by converting a typical backyard garden shed into a private haven for finding solitude at home.
Solitude offers more than an escape from the whining, ringing phones and endless chores.
As studies have shown, spending time alone can actually improve your physical and psychological health, boost creativity and productivity, ease anxiety and much more.
For moms and wives who may feel guilty about getting away, consider this: "Me-time" can alternately enhance the quality of your relationships with your loved ones.
According to Dr. Sherrie Bourg, a psychologist and an author who specializes in the area of women and stress, women often see themselves as the one who should be taking care of everyone else, causing their needs to fall by the wayside.
But spending time alone can benefit others since you become happier and healthier.
