7 Home Decor Choices That Promote Wellness

Spread wellness in your home before you even step in the door.

Home Improvement

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.

Homesick Ultrasonic Aroma Oil Diffuser

Amazon

Sometimes it's hard to find our zen at home because it doesn't feel like home. Whether you're adjusting to college life, a new city, or just a new place, the Homesick Ultrasonic Aroma Oil Diffuser features unique scents from different regions that can feel like home to you like the Tri-State bundle and California Classic Bundle. Whatever scent you choose, this diffuser is good for six hours and also has a cute little shape that you won't mind showing off as décor.

Himalayan Salt Lamp

If you have trouble sleeping, the dimming feature on this lamp can be used at night to possibly help you fall asleep with a quickness.

You know what? Sometimes, you've got to push a few coins aside and determine in your mind that you're going to invest into your sex life (if you had a sex jar, this would be easier to do, by the way. You can read more about what that is all about here). If you're someone who is totally down to do that, but you don't have a clue where to begin, boy have you come to the right place!

Recently, I was talking to a friend of mine about someone who once told me that they had an annual week-long summer rendezvous that lasted for over 15 years with someone else. Yep — this individual would meet up with another person who lived in a different state, solely to have sex for a week straight, and then return to their city as if nothing ever happened. According to them, the only reason why this ritual romp eventually came to an end is because the other person decided to get serious about someone else; however, it wasn't until it ended that the person who told me the story realized how attached they actually had become to their sex partner (a cautionary tale). After I completed my lil' tale, my friend simply said, "Oh, I do that s — t every cuffing season. There are some people who I only talk to around this time of year, we f — k around and then that's that until the season comes around again."
