How to have a Soulful Weekend

In today’s post, I wanted to bring together some of my favourite ways how to have a soulful weekend, especially if you have found yourself struggling to keep those vibrations high of late.

At the heart of a soulful weekend are you restoring your energy and feeling balanced again, so each of these tasks is about connection and in some cases, disconnecting, from the world.

How to have a Soulful Weekend
  • Go for a walk somewhere completely new. Get lost for a little while.
  • Delete all social media apps from your phone and reinstall Monday. And yes, I mean your emails too. READ: Disconnect to Reconnect
  • Plant an indoor or outdoor herb garden and embrace homegrown produce.
  • Have a fire in the back garden and toast marshmallows under the stars.
  • Go through old magazines and cut out anything that stirs a positive emotion.
  • Dance to a high vibe playlist.
  • Plan a luxury 3-course dinner and get dressed up for the occasion. How long ago was it since you really dressed up and felt amazing? Make it a date. READ: Go on a Date with Yourself
