It’s Saturday afternoon. You’ve been adulting all day and have still more to go. But you’re kinda pooped, so you slump into the nearest chair and stare at your phone / a magazine / the wall. And thus begins half an hour of scrolling, skimming, twiddling vacant time. Do you feel better afterwards?
- Declare the Time: Declare it on your To Do list, in your mind or out loud to the rabble you share a house with. I AM OFFICIALLY RELAXING.
- Set the Scene: You know, like a dog turns three times before lying down! Dim the lighting. Remove all devices. Add a nice scent, a soft throw, a fave drink, an open window, cozy slippers. Maybe keep all your relaxing tools together on a pretty tray for easy access!
- Choose your input - pick a book, a meditation, a podcast, a paintbrush, soul music or silence - something that’s going to nourish you. Something that will slow you down, rather than speeding you up (ie. digital input).
When we do home consults, we are ALWAYS watching for a corner or nook that we can encourage our clients to transform into a permanent relaxation space. That's a little slice of well-being heaven, if you ask us!
So, there it is. Never mind being ready to rumble...are you ready to rest?!
