FAVORITE HOMEBODY ACTIVITIES
HAVE A LAUGH
One good thing about the avalanche of information available to us with the click of a mouse is that we can find funny stuff fast. Laughter really can be the best medicine and very nourishing.
BE HERE NOW!
Notice something beautiful in every direction around you. Consider the “Beauty before me, beauty behind me, beauty to the right of me, beauty to the left of me, beauty above me, beauty below me, beauty within me.”
TAKE 3 DEEP BREATHS AND STRETCH
It’s nourishing for the body, mind and spirit. It’s free and you’ll feel the benefits immediately.
BINGE A NEW SERIES
Give yourself permission to binge out on Netflix for a few hours. Meaning let yourself do it and enjoy it with no guilt, no judgement and no “shoulding” involved.
FIND THE MUSIC IN YOU
You can listen, sing along or play along. “Music soothes you and fills your cup so to speak. Shake your booty at the same time. Movement can be one of the most nourishing things for your body.
MAKE SPACE & DECLUTTER
Organize a closet or the “junk” drawer. Keep it small so that it doesn’t feel overwhelming but still feels like purging stuff you longer need.
GET A HOUSEPLANT
Better yet, get two! Houseplants are great for your health as they remove toxins from the air, absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Rumor has it that they can also improve concentration and productivity, reduce stress levels and boost your mood — which makes them perfect for not just your home but your work space, too.
SET THE MOOD
Light some candles, start the kettle, put on some slippers and grab a cozy blanket. There’s a reason that candles are often a big part of ceremonies (have you tried our aromatherapy candles?). They are soothing, calming and quite restorative. Just relax and hit the pause button for a little bit.
Just think of it as a way to work through the noise and reconnect to your essential self. To make it more fun, try something brand new (have you tried journaling?) that's calling to you or bust out the colored markers. You’re never too old to color.
MAKE A VISION BOARD
It’s a tangible way to regularly see and be reminded of the things that you want to manifest for yourself. I can’t explain how exactly the magic works but I can attest to the fact that when I make vision boards the things I put there almost always come to fruition somehow.
