Here are a few ways to promote wellness without leaving your home:
Bring nature indoors with houseplants
Plants help circulate the air in your home,and make beautiful decorative pieces. Examples of air-filtering plants include Chinese Evergreens, Spider Plants, and Flamingo Lilies. Some plants also help with humidity issues within your home.
Aromatherapy helps reduce stress and anxiety through the activation of the sense of smell. Depending on the oil being diffused, it can have different benefits such as, Boosted Immune System, Better Sleep, and Reduced Stress. Popular scents include Lavender, Orange Citrus, Peppermint, and Eucalyptus. There are plenty of scents/oils to choose from, and if you like them enough, you can mix them!
Challenge the Mind
Reading books, solving puzzles, and playing board games help keep your mind active. By finding ways to stay mentally-active, while also having fun, you are able to reduce stress and have a good time while doing it!
Writing down goals and dreams makes them more likely to happen. By taking a step back and reflecting, it can be easier to realize the positives in life. This can also help you find inspiration within your own creativity. A single stroke of a pen can make the difference of a lifetime, without you even knowing it.
Turn Off Your Phone
Take some time each day and turn off your phone. Your mind needs to disconnect for a while each day to focus on you and your needs. That text or post can wait 15 minutes, you deserve some personal time. Even if it is right before bed, a break from screens can be good for your physical and mental health.
These simple tips can help take your every-day life to the next level. With each step you take to better your life, the closer you are to achieving your dreams. Wellness can be found anywhere, and even small steps are still progressing in the right direction.
