    If you want this one-time only (not recommended) you could so something like
    \vskip{1em}\hskip{3em}

    If you want this for each paragraph (strongly recommended) you can set in your preamble (above begin document)
    \setlength{parskip}{1em} % make 1 line space between paragraphs
    \setlength{parindent}{0.8cm} % indent every paragraph by 0.8cm
