Lets be real, the world is a pretty different place right now. I think its really important that we all stay home for the time being, but I won't discredit the fact that it can get pretty boring. So today I'm sharing how you can make the most of being at home and give you some tips on how I'm still living my best life inside! Those expensive body washes that came with your perfume set from Christmas? Get them out and start using them! I don't think there will ever be another time quite like this in our lifetimes, so we might as well make the most of it.
This is the perfect time to get your beauty sleep. Use this time inside to catch up on sleep and invest in new bedding! My favorite sheet set is the Resort Collection from Frontgate. Silk pillowcases can help to reduce frizz and help keep your skin looking bright. Although it can be tempting to stay in bed all day, I think its important to get up and get dressed even if you're slipping into another set of lounge wear... oh! Don't forget to make your bed. I read that you should always start the day by making your bed. Why? Making your bed starts your day with an accomplishment (even if its a small one) and makes you more likely to accomplish things throughout your day.
Here's some of my favorite at home staples:
Even though gyms are closed, that doesn't mean that your workouts have to suffer. If you can, invest in home gym equipment. Or, check out some of my favorite workout videos on YouTube. Every day I run then do my daily ab routine. I bought a treadmill just in case the weather is bad here in Dallas. Put on your favorite workout set and do what makes you happy whether that's running, yoga or dancing.
Here's my favorite running playlist at the moment!
If my space isn't clean, my mind isn't. In my opinion, there's nothing better than ending the day in a clean room tucked under a set of freshly washed sheets. Talk about living your best life! Now's a great time to organize your closet, pantry, fridge, or garage. My sister sent me a pictures of her pantry before and after raiding The Container Store and now I'm inspired to organize my snacks categorically... lol
That project that you started but never finished - now is the time to complete it! I've been so impressed with my friends trying new things and posting about it on their Instagram accounts. Your new hobby could be cooking, blogging, learning a new language, or starting a DIY project. We all put off different things because we say we'll start them when we have the time. Use this time inside to get going on your projects or find something new to try! I'm using this time to focus more on my blog and starting my own business!
Pampering & Self Care
Quite arguably the most important step in living your best life at home is self care, of course! Indulge in pampering yourself by lighting that fancy candle you received as a gift, invest in some great skin care, and focus on treating yourself with kindness. Self care is something we should be doing all the time, but often we prioritize other things and neglect ourselves. Whether you choose to do little things everyday that make you happy or save up a night to pamper yourself, I think its very important to dedicate time to treating yourself.
I hope that this time period brings creativity and vibrancy into your life. Focus on bettering yourself and the world around you, even if you have to do it from inside the house. What are some ways that you're living your best life at home? Let me know!
