Home is where the wellness is. At least, that's what it's supposed to feel like, right? No matter how much time we spend at home, we want it to be a place of serenity and peace; an oasis for us to just relax with our thoughts without a care in the world. Even with the pile of clothes on the couch, and the dishes in the sink that we wish Alexa could take care of for us, home can still be a place of zen, peace and balance.
It just takes a little more effort on our part. The fact that our homes will look more like we actually live in it compared to the way we wish it would look on our Pinterest board, is completely okay. That doesn't mean that we can't enjoy it, or that we can't…dare I say… relax in it.
With these little odds and ends, you'll be able to spread wellness in your home before you even step in the door.
