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.
Today celebrates ‘Bubble Bath’ day ? Rich bubbles, beautiful candles, quiet music, and a little time to ourselves have all been the hallmark of the bubble bath. Bubblebath Day reminds us of these little luxuries, and to take time out of our day to treat ourselves to a little special TLC. #wellness #wellnesscoach #health #yoga #nutrition #fitness #lifestyle #healthylifestyle #selfcare #motivation #meditation #mindfulness #Inspiration #Motivation #Empowerment #DesignTheLifestyleYouDesire #BlissfulForties
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
One of the things we LOVE about cooking is that cooking a meal is one of the most personal things you can do for someone. You’re literally providing plated nourishment made with your own hands and creativity. Even if you’re following a recipe, you picked the recipe and planned the meal didn’t you? The speciality about a home cooked meal is the feeling of abundance it provides. Everything you have and need is right in the front of you within arms reach. The fragrance of garlic, the crackle from the skillet, and the sight of perfectly roasted bird coming out from the oven…. DIVINE! Cooking speaks to all of our senses. It’s a joy we I am so proud to know! https://www.designthelifestyleyoudesire.com/mindful-eating-get-started/ #nutrition #healthyfood #health #healthylifestyle #healthy #healthylife #diet #food #lifestyle #foodie #eatclean #cleaneating #wellness #healthyliving #Designthelifestyleyoudesire #BlissfulForties
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.
