If there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s that we have to appreciate the little things in life, from the smell of fresh coffee in the morning to a walk with a friend. This year, create a new routine to help you make the most out of each day and the joyful things found in it. We’re all in this together. So if you need some inspo and encouragement, just keep reading...
It’s easy to wake up and start working right away, but mediating first lets you take some time to focus on your body and emotions. Need a helping hand (or voice)? Mediation apps and guidance on Spotify, YouTube or even online groups is a great way to get started and stay focused.
Make A List
This is a simple but super effective way to structure your day (plus it feels great to cross something off). Make a daily list or two. Try writing one for work and one for your personal life. Your list doesn’t need to be anything extravagant: "go for a walk” or “remember to call Mom” will do.
Next up: your morning coffee, the perfect companion on cold winter days. Instead of rushing your brew, put some time aside to slowly sip with a good book or the radio. Or open up your windows and listen to the birds, and breathe in a fresh day. Whether you prefer a pour, French press or your coffee machine doing all the hard work, a fresh coffee never fails to comfort. Hack: level up your brew with fresh beans. Mmmm...
Lunch Time Walk
Less daylight means more time to cozy up on the sofa. But it also means you should go out and embrace outdoor life whenever you can. It’s easy to grab a snack and sit with Netflix on your lunch break (and we’re not opposed to it), but try to go for a quick stroll during your breaks instead. Stretch your legs and let the winter sun shine down on you – you won’t regret it!
A fun way to spend your lunch is to create a meal so delicious and beautiful it would be a crime to not post it on Instagram. Share the inspo with your followers (and treat yourself to a lunch you’d tip for 😉).
Tablescape Your Dinners
We can’t go to restaurants, so we’re bringing them home. Get creative: create unique new tablescaping layouts at dinner time. Try matching your table theme to your food, and use music to help create ambience. You’ll be an expert table dresser in no time, ready for your first dinner party of the year...
