Life isn’t about the ultimate stopping point, it’s about finding happiness between destinations. Stop living on autopilot and be present in the moment – every moment. Take the time to transform everyday routines into meaningful rituals and you’ll rediscover the beauty of life.
Happiness can be found in the smallest of things; Enjoy a warm fragrant bath, a cup of speciality tea, listen to music, read a book or a magazine, do the dishes with a little more pleasure… the list is endless. That is what life is all about: enriching the little things in life with a hint of luxury.
Here are 5 ways to transform your everyday routines into moments of indulgence:
1. Take a long way home
Instead of taking the fastest mode of transport, take the one that brings you the most pleasure. One that allows you to experience the sights, sounds and smells of being outside. Put on your walking shoes or get on your bike, because nature moves at its own pace, and you can, too.
2. Create the soundtrack to your life
Music is said to be the language of the soul. Put on your favourite playlist and let it wash over you for a few minutes every day. Sing aloud with a track and move to the beat: both are scientifically proven to lower stress levels.
3. Do a digital detox
We all love our smartphones and enjoy the convenience of being “plugged in” 24/7. But when we rely too heavily on the internet, it can take a toll on our mental health.
4. Bring soulfulness into your kitchen
5. Live from A to ZZZZZZ
Your mind, body and soul depend on sleep. Make your bedroom your sanctuary with candles and relaxing scents for the sweetest dreams.
