Feminine Wellness Sanctuary
While we are spending more time than ever in our homes, we are also re-considering what life at home can mean. Our spaces have turned into offices, classrooms, gyms, and playgrounds, yet it is still essential to carve out a small space to have a mind-body-soul connection: a feminine wellness sanctuary. Think she-shed with a bit more “she” and a tad less “shed.” We’ve curated a few ideas to help you get started
Bringing in mindful statuary, like the Lakshmi Garden Statue, helps you connect to the outdoors and keeps you focused on a balance between harmony and wellbeing.
Even if you live in a small space, having a transformable area where you can do some exercise will improve your wellbeing. Yoga especially can be practiced with just a mat and a space to place it, perhaps near your wellness relaxation area. Our new Eco-friendly Yoga Mats are made from high-quality PER (Poly Environmental Resin), 100% recycled materials and are free from latex, phthalate, and heavy metals.
Scents can have a calming or energizing influence on your mood. You can create a sense of wellbeing by scenting your home with natural fragrances using scented diffusers, essential oils, or natural scented candles. Alternatively, you can apply our new Aromatherapy Balms to your wrists, neck and temple liberally, inhale deeply and think about how you want to feel in the next moment. We especially love the “Happy” scent as the uplifting citrus and mint blend delivers an instant burst of positivity and is perfect when expressing moments of gratitude.
Having a physical, Zen space dedicated to your wellbeing, where you have the option to shut off from all the busy elements of your life, is very important. If you don’t have a lot of space, this could be a transformable area or just a comfy pouf in one corner for quiet, thinking time. Our oversized Meditation Pouf can be used for meditation but also casual seating or a cozy pet lounger for our furry besties.
Create a relaxing and connected area by adorning your space with your most treasured items. We love the unique qualities of our Meditation Timers as white sand travels through a stacked, mouth-blown glass cylindrical sculpture. The simple design of the ribbed glass offers a mesmerizing and meditative optical illusion.
Lastly, consider investing in fewer items but really special ones, that you feel a strong connection with, perhaps that have been fair traded or created locally, reducing the carbon footprint of your home and your wellness sanctuary.
We would love to hear or see your experiences of creating a feminine wellness sanctuary in your home so please share with us on social media with the hashtag #myvivaterra.
