When we think of wellness and being healthy, we often think of things like signing up for fitness classes, buying green juices, or booking facials. And while we love the idea of treating yourself (you deserve it!), there are several ways to bring wellness into your own home that are just as healthy and more cost-effective.
Does your home bring you comfort and joy? Is it a safe space that provides a reprieve from modern-day problems, like stress and overstimulation? No matter where you live, creating a healthy environment is essential to feeling your best.
Calming Bubble Baths
After a long day at work, coming home to a warm bubble bath is exactly what your mind and body need to de-stress and relax. Listen to music and add your favorite essential oils to leave your skin feeling fresh and moisturized!
Scrubs are great for exfoliating and getting rid of dead skin and making one at home is a simple way to hydrate your entire body.
Do you have a junk drawer that you pile things into but rarely clean out? To help minimize stress and feel more at ease, don’t let your closet or drawers pile up with old belongings. Donate clothes you haven’t worn for the past two seasons and throw out miscellaneous items you no longer use.
Natural Cleaning Products
Having a clean home is so important, but finding cleaning products that are natural and good for your health can be difficult. That’s why I encourage you to make your own cleaning products – so you know exactly which ingredients they contain.
Houseplants aren’t just being used to help decorate or brighten a room; they’re also good for your health! As one of the best natural air purifiers, houseplants regulate humidity, boost your mood, and help reduce stress. If you’re a little hesitant about “going green,” start small by adding succulents, which are low maintenance and perfect for beginners.
As you can see, there are many ways to create a healthier and happier home. Remember, you don’t have to tackle all these items at once. Try a few and see what works best for you!
