When it comes to strategies for reducing stress, improving your mental and emotional health, and getting your body moving, there are some tried-and-true tricks to embrace. It all starts with changing your mindset!
Clean It Out
Make an effort to go through your home and refresh it from top-to-bottom. Decluttering your home can help declutter your mind.
- Purge closets and cupboards according to Family Handyman guidelines and recycle, sell, or donate anything you no longer want or need.
- Air out your home by opening windows and conducting a good old fashioned smudging with sage.
- Get rid of unhealthy foods in your pantry, especially those processed and laden with salt, sugar and fat.
Create New Spaces
Something as simple as reimagining your living space through room redesigns and reorganization can put the whole family in a fresh state of mind.
- Follow Architectural Digest recommendations for rearranging the furniture in different rooms to improve the energy and flow.
- Remove electronics from your bedrooms and add black-out curtains to your windows to ensure a better night’s sleep.
- Clear out a large closet or guest room and turn it into a meditation space to de-stress and relax.
Go Au Natural
The more green and natural we live, the healthier our minds, bodies, and homes will be.
- Implement a recycling program and start a compost heap to recycle organic waste.
- Buy organic, chemical-free cleaning and personal care products to reduce the toxins in your home and in your system.
- Try natural supplements and herbs to improve your overall health and wellbeing.
We often get so busy managing our time that we end up over-scheduling ourselves and forgetting about allocating time for rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation.
- Start building in 15-minute “free” periods each day to recharge and refocus.
- Say no to things you can’t – or don’t want – to do.
- See the world! If you’re got the travel bug, Integral Travel can help you plan the perfect trip.
Sometimes we just need to take a step back, reevaluate our lives and priorities, and make a fresh start. There’s no time like the present to give yourself the gift of time.
