As a writer, I am always looking for a comfortable and peaceful place to be creative. From my favorite coffee house to rooms within my home, the idea of comfort is what I yearn for. Sometimes it's early in the morning with a cup of tea as I sit at the corner of my comfy couch surrounded by the sounds of soft jazz filling up my background. Other times, it's in the late hours as I sit on my bed with a laptop desk, engulfed in the rhythmic sound of Soca music as the music's energy comes out of my fingers, creating some of my dopest written creations.
While I feel like these are some of the best times and moments for my creativity, I learned that I can do even more to enhance my talent and get into my boss mode! This year, I have decided to make my home a more sacred space for productivity and wellness. Yes, I've got my self-care crown on!
Recently, I took the advice of Intuitive Life and Wellness Coach Dani Faust to make a few changes in my home and I have to admit, they are very helpful with achieving my goals without complicating my already busy lifestyle.
1. Declutter & Destress
It all starts with cleaning my work space, which I now do on a weekly basis. "Declutter and remove things that are not in resonance with who you currently are or who you're trying to become," says Dani.
Facts! I find the less junk you have in your space, the easier it is to work. I also try to work paperless and keep my work in neat folders on my computer. After decluttering, I went back to my roots and smudged my home with sage from top to bottom. This rids the home of negative vibes that may have crossed your threshold. It also protects your space from negative thoughts. Get into it!
